    Default 100 novel things for 2024

    One of my goals this year is to have more novelty in my life. This is not a response to life being boring or routine as it is (I actually really like routine), but more that life is short and there are so many things out there to experience.

    Could be trying a new type of coffee at a new shop rather than cold brew at the same old haunts. Or doing some writing or art instead of video games every night. Or learning a new skill.

    I'm aiming for 100 novel things in 2024 which averages to about 2 per week. Very doable. Ideally, the novel things should be one of the following:

    • A completely new experience.
    • Something familiar but in a very novel way.
    • Something I haven't done for a very long time (at least 5 years) with some twist to it.


    I will post these as they come.

    1. Went ice skating with the family (1/3). Though I have done this one other time, it was over 10 years ago and I did not push a little kid in a Zamboni that time!

    2. First time rollerblading. I only fell once! I can make myself go but not really stop. (1/6)

    3. Tried the Jewish deli Wise Sons. The pastrami on rye was good. I regret not going for the full Rueben. I was too chicken. Will need to do that next time. (1/8)

    I would offer suggestions but they might not be appropriate for this family friendly site.

    ^ No comment there.

    4. Went on a 2 mile walk to a part of the neighborhood I have never been. It is surprising how hilly most of the houses are in our neighborhood. We are lucky to be on relatively flat ground! (1/11)

    5. Walked to Starbucks from my kids’ school then walked back to pick them up (about 2 miles). (1/12)

    7. Attended a poetry reading. Even more important is that it was at the release of the first published poetry book of our very own member Calliope! (1/18)

    8. Tried a hard boiled quail egg. It was good. Tasted like a chicken egg, just smaller. (1/18)

    Nicely done. I've never liked rain running but living in the UK it's not really optional! When I did my first ever parkrun 5k a few years ago it was in the pouring rain and part of the course was actually flooded with knee high water. It was a smurfing experience for a total novice runner.
