One Month Update:

One Month Update:

I’ve officially been 30 for a month and so far-so good (well no crazy new wrinkles at least.)  I have been thinking a lot about the list.  I have had a great month and have a good start on my project.  My first accomplishment is this here Blog itself.  I am realizing that all that html and computer geek language Mr. Langille taught me back in grade 11 CRS will come in handy in my lifetime, who knew?  I still have a lot to learn, and hoping to get lots of helpful hints from my fellow bloggers Candace and Margaret.  I’ll throw links to their blogs on my blog as soon as I find out how to do that.  I also made twitter and email addresses  for my blog, I will also post those soon.

Done and Done: #1, #3, #27… It doesn’t seem like a lot, but I have a lot more accomplished towards the other list items.  For example, Margaret and I are proud owners of Red Sox vs. Angels tickets. This is possibly my most exciting achievement yet and I had nothing to do with it (Besides saying to get First Baseline tickets to be closer to Pujols, a baseball addiction comes in handy when deciding which tickets to buy.)   Other examples, I bought a Groupon for a month pass to Bikram Yoga Halifax, I registered for the Bluenose 10k and finally, I’ve read 5 books of my goal of 30. To anyone wondering if they want to buy an ereader or not, my advice is DO IT! I throw that thing in my purse and away I go. It’s a lot lighter than a new hardcover book, and I can download a new book anywhere there’s wifi.  God’s gift to book lovers!

As you can see, I have only crossed off 3 goals, but have a jump start at the rest. I have also planted the seed in my friends to go camping, surfing, hiking and other fun adventures.  I’m also having so much fun with this I hope others do the same.  Even if blogging isn’t for you, make a list and stick to it.  

My hardest # to cross off??…. One would think seeing the Grand Canyon would be my hardest goal … but so far it’s becoming a morning person.  I am a night owl. Always was…You can ask my friend Ryan who used to wake me up at noon on a Saturday to ride bikes at age 12… I’ve never changed.  I have been running and exercising a lot, and attempting to go to bed earlier. But so far, I’m no closer to this goal.  This will be my toughest challenge for sure.  I’ll write more on this soon.  I can’t tell you how many google searches I’ve done on becoming a morning person. Seem so easy, well Dr Oz, It Aint!!!

My baseball rant...

I feel like I need to start a blog on my opinions on Baseball and all things sports.  I am excited that in one month the weather will be warming up and baseball will be starting again. Time to call eastlink, add every sports package available and zone out to Buck Martinez's play-by-play.  Nothing beats a good play, a sharp home run, a few arguments and friendly rivalries.  As a Yankee fan, I'm used to the arguments and rivalries.  Who knows what will happen this season.  A September quite that exciting, the Red Sox choaking (I hope that happens again actually) and a World Series that proves it comes down to the very last pitch will be hard to beat. 

Why am I including a baseball rant in my blog??? Well in August I will be completing #11 "Go to a Major League Baseball Game"... And I couldn't be more excited! I will be in California visiting a good friend Margaret ( and what does she live close to.... The Los Angeles Angels of Aneheim!!! Proving I have semi-ok Karma, they are home the week I'm visiting, proving its not outstanding, amazing Karma they are taking on the Boston Red Sox.  Looks like we will be cheering on Pujols, former Blue Jay Vernon Wells and the rest of the Angels! Go Angels!

So with all that being said, I am a little closer to completing #11 and seeing a Major League baseball game.  I have seen a Blue Jays game a few years ago (drank a lot of beer with Ryan and snuck down to seats behind the dugout as the story goes)... but with baseball being my favorite sport and obsession, I thought it was a good add to my "30 while I'm 30 project".  Go Yankees 2012! (And Go BlueJays as a proud Canadian and Toronto sports fan)
