100 New Experiences in under 180 days

On July 16, 2015, I made a resolution: during the rest of the year 2015 (some 160ish days), I would try to do/experience 100 things I hadn’t done/experienced before. This page keeps track of those things.

For the first time ever, I tried meditating properly. I turned my phone on silent and tried to focus on breathing and relaxing. I did a ten minute session and, I must admit, sitting completely still and not doing anything is more difficult than it sounds.

Listened to an entire album of house music in one sitting. I tried to find something to like, but I guess house just isn’t my thing.

I made my inaugural visit to a high-end cocktail bar. I chose a trio of mini cocktails, each with their accompanying small tasting dishes. It was a really nice experience, especially since the place i went to—although up-scale—wasn’t too formal.

A pretty small thing, admittedly, but today I livestreamed a video game for the first time ever. I chose Jackbox Party Pack and Fibbage in particular. Games like these are really great for livestreaming since they allow the audience to participate. I had a blast.
