My name is Laura.
I am twenty-nine.
I am trying something new everyday for a year up until my thirtieth birthday. I am not afraid of turning thirty, I simply found myself fallen into a routine of working and sleeping and just going through the motions of life. In order to wake myself back up I decided to start a blog and set some strange vague goals for myself (experience something new). It seems to be working.
You can find a list of the activities I have participated in here, and feel free to make any suggestions.
And I get to make up the rules about what constitutes a new experience. Even if it’s lame, it still counts. This is no democracy.
Here are a few other random facts about me:
I love to laugh, and I can laugh at just about anything. I stare too much. My mind often works faster than my mouth. I love Murder, She Wrote. I hate running, though I would like to complete a 5K sometime this year. I have extremely high arches. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I am very indecisive when it comes to everyday choices. I go to a ton of baseball games, and developed a love of the sport through my boyfriend Patrick. I play kickball in spring and fall, and softball in summer. I hibernate in winter. I broke my left ankle drunk dancing in England. I have a master’s degree, but I don’t think it’s really worth the expense; I went on a whim. I am spontaneous. I broke my left arm rollerskating in first grade. I am addicted to my smart phone. I like taking pictures. I work at a TV shopping network. I love to travel, but don’t have nearly enough free time to properly do it. I like to write, but am not very awesome at it. I hate proof reading things I’ve written. I’m not as social as I used to be and I wonder if that is good or bad. I hate being emotional, but I am very emotional. My parents are English. I’ve never been to New York City. Santorini is the most beautiful place I have ever visited, and Cinque Terre follows a close second.
