My first time

No, not that first time, you pervs.

Yesterday I stumbled upon the question, “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” over on the Lululemon Community Site, and it really got me thinking.

When was the last time I did something for the first time? The first thing that sticks out is the first time I ever took a cab. That was back in the summer when a great friend of mine was in town for a visit. He insisted on taking a cab home, so the group of us did. I’d post a picture, but when I looked at it, I’m disgustingly drunk and have about 10 chins, not even joking. No one needs to see that.

But when was the first time I did something that really impacted my life? I guess going to the gym impacted my life in the way that I feel better about my body. That was in June. There has to be something more recent.

So here I am, sitting here, thinking over and over, “What have I done?” My honest answer? Nothing. I seem to have such a routine life at the moment that I haven’t done anything for the first time.

It’s a little depressing, but I’m planning on changing that. I’ve recently finished a list of 96 in 1096, similar to the popular 101 in 1001 lists, except in a “less is with more” way. Less things, more days, it’s perfect for my inner procrastinator; Keeping to that, I’m still going to start it on my birthday this year, like I had originally planned.

So in just over a month, expect a new era of cherry popping from me.

What have you done for the first time lately?

One thought on “My first time

  1. I’ve had tons of firsts over the last couple of years with moving, starting j-school, first “real” job, first half-marathon, long-distance relationship, first pet etc. (haha, wow, that’s a lot) but I think 2010 is a HUGE year of firsts for me: Europe, full marathon, graduating university are the three that stick out in my mind!

    I think the 101 in 1001 lists are awesome. I totally plan on doing one, one day!
