I turned 25 on 12th September 2009 and decided I should have some sort of adventure before my next birthday.
I’m not really an adventures person so I needed some inspiration. I spotted someone tweeting about doing 400 things before you’re 40 (I’m trying to track down that tweet…, see 129) and, being a super huge fan of lists, thought a similar project (I also love a good project) might keep me busy for a year. I’d also read Mike Gayle‘s very funny book, The To-do List, in which he writes, then works through a list of things he wants to do. I’m almost certainly not that witty but we’ll see.
The day after my birthday I emailed friends and family members expecting most of them to ignore me and write it off as one of my random bright ideas I then get bored of. Instead I got loads of things for the list and a load more people to nag me about it.
