Happy New Year!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my 52 Things blog! For my New Year’s resolution I’m endeavoring to try 52 new things in 52 weeks. Over the next year I will try everything from acupuncture to zip-lining in an attempt to broaden my horizons. This isn’t intended to be a ‘bucket list’ (that list is significantly more expensive and extravagant), it’s just a way to pry myself out of my rut. I will chronicle my journey here, mainly to ensure that I actually follow through with it.

Here is a partial list of my planned activities. I’ll add more as the year progresses and opportunities arise:

  • Acupuncture
  • Aerial yoga/fitness class
  • Batting cage
  • Belly dancing
  • Cooking class
  • Corn maze
  • Dance class
  • Gamble at a casino
  • Golf range
  • Good deed everyday for a week
  • Go to a psychic
  • Hike in the Great Smoky Mountains
  • Horseback riding
  • Hot air ballon ride
  • Ice skating in Market Square
  • Juice fast
  • Kayaking
  • NFL game
  • NHL game
  • Paintball
  • Painting class
  • Polar Bear Plunge
  • Pottery class
  • Renaissance festival
  • Ride a mechanical bull
  • Rock climbing
  • Run a 5k
  • Run a 10k
  • Salt therapy
  • Shoot a bow and arrow
  • Stand up paddle boarding
  • Trivia night
  • Visit a zoo
  • Volunteer at a homeless shelter
  • Volunteer at an animal shelter
  • Whitewater rafting
  • Wine tasting/Vineyard tour
  • Zip-lining

If you would like to join me on any of my adventures or have additional suggestions for my list, please let me know.

  1. if you still need to do the NFL game….you really need to have the JETS experience with Timmy !


  2. I came across your blog because I was planning to try the aerial arts. Its inspiring to follow along on your journey. Its a great idea! Did you finish the 52 weeks of exciting new things?! Congrats on all of your new adventures and skillz.


    • Hi! I hope you have fun trying aerial arts! I had a blast with the class I took. What do you plan to do specifically?

      I’m glad you like the blog. While I wasn’t able to do a new thing every week, I did accomplish more than 52 things I’d never done before. I plan to keep going in 2014!
