When was the last time you did something for the first time? If it’s been so long that you can’t remember, I would consider that an issue. In August of 2014 I found that I was asking myself that same question over and over again. I took every possible opportunity to go try something new. I took a card-sewing class (yes, you read that right), a brew-master’s tour, adult ballet (and barre) classes, did a scotch-tasting (okay, that one wasn’t quite so new), a Ukranian egg-decorating class (yep – wax, dip, and dye over and over again), and I dined in the dark at a restaurant where all the servers were blind. We had scheduled axe-throwing and stand-up comedy classes, but ultimately I was just too busy with such an extremely demanding job.
