Birthdays are just different when you get “older”. Leading up to September 17th I had so many people asking me “what are you doing for your bday?!” For the first time maybe ever in my life my response was a shoulder shrug and “nothing much”. Gasps and dropped jaws followed. True, I normally put together some sort of event to celebrate the day I entered this world, but 31 just seemed so “blah” to celebrate. Can’t really go out on the town with a crown on at that age, amIright?!
I started thinking back to the Big 3-0 and my mission to do 30 things in 30 days before 30. It was one of the best 30 days ever! As a 31 year old I don’t know that I have the energy to do THAT again, but I started thinking how I use the same concept for a year long project. And so, “one aMASing year” was born!
I have selected 5 different “challenges” to complete over the next year, each benefiting a different part of my life.
Here’s the breakdown:
Read 31 Books
Make 31 New Recipes
Go on 31 First Dates I would also be happy NOT completing this one, if you get my drift
Run (at least) 31 Miles Each Month
Save an extra $31 each month
But here’s the real deal- I need YOUR help to complete these!!! If I knew 31 boys to date, I’d be doing that. If I had 31 book suggestions, I’d at least be pretending to read them or have them on hold at the library. I need introductions, suggestions, encouragement, and knowledge to finish these tasks by Sept 17, 2015.
If you can help me in any of these categories please leave a message below, tweet at me (masita917), FB me, Instagram me (mas917) or DM me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ve love to hear from as many people as possible!
I will periodically update the counts on each task, and write about my experiences. Thanks advance for your help- I hope you’ll stick around for the whole journey- can’t wait to see where we are one year from now!
