The List

The List

Last Saturday I got really bored and decided to make a list of things that I remember being interested in from my teens up until now.
I’ve always been the type of person who darts between hobbies several times a week, and so I have hundreds of interests that I never got good at, didn’t pay enough attention to, or abandoned because #Life got in the way.
At the same time, I feel/know that I’m never happier than when I have the time to properly explore something I’m interested in. I get obsessed with it, and while I’m doing it, reading about it, talking about it — I feel good. Plus, I remember being much happier when I was a teenager. PLUS, I’m constantly wondering what I should write about and what this blog should be about.

So, obviously, the best thing I could do for myself/this blog is to take that list and explore every single one of the topics in one way or another. It could be making a YouTube playlist of videos about it, sharing some memories back in the day, or just going out and taking some pictures.
It’s a long list, though, so it will take a while. That’s a good thing!

I now have 96 topics to write about for the next… Year? Two years? Decade? We’ll see how it goes.

And now
