Trying: My Wishlist

December 18 – Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?

This may sound totally silly, but the one thing I want to try next year?

A vacation with my boyfriend.

That’s right – been with the man for almost 5 years, but we have never, ever taken a vacation together! Crazy right? Not even a short weekend getaway!

What has prevented us in the past is that Mike worked weekends and I worked during the week. The timing was never right. Add in the fact that we are poor students and you get a vacationless couple of years.

But this year things will be different. Mike has a new 9-5 job that is seems very promising in terms of vacation time and pay. And I still have a very flexible schedule where I can take off for a week, or an extended weekend if need be, especially in the summer when school is out of session.

So here’s hoping that we get to go somewhere, anywhere this year – just the two of us.

Something that I wanted to try in 2010? Riding an elephant in Thailand. And I did it, but to be honest, it wasn’t as glamorous and amazing as I expected it to be. It was actually a little uncomfortable. And very bumpy. I actually had more fun feeding them bananas than I did riding them.

Something that I regret not trying in 2010? Getting the little fishies massage in Thailand. Basically you pay 100 Baht to stick your legs in this tank and all these little fish suck off the dead skin. My friend Ashley did it and I took a video. In my head I decided not to do it because I thought I didn’t have enough money, but in all honestly it wasn’t that expensive. So I should have went for it, and I regret that I didn’t.
