What did you do in 2012 that you had never done before? Will you do it again?

I did many things this year that I’d never done before–only some of them are SFW hee.

I made a list of things I wanted to do before I turned thirty, and of course haven’t done most of it. But notably, I DID go to Colombia, and it was just such an amazing experience that I definitely want to do it again.

In February, I went to the Andamans, and ended up snorkelling. I fell in LOVE with it. I am DEFINITELY doing that again, and maybe even making it to scuba this year.

I worked on a book literally from the moment of the idea seeding, till the day we signed it and it officially became my book. (I’m still working on it.) That was AWESOME! I can’t begin to describe the bubbling of sheer delight that happens every time I turn my thoughts to that causal conversation: ‘So, MW, have you ever written anything?’ And there it all began. I mean it had moments of trauma and whatnot, but I definitely think that the single best thing I’ve done before I turned thirty-one will have been that book. And I might just have found something akin to career and purpose.
