Anya's "50 Things To Do When Bored"

In my last blog entry, if you weren't already aware, I decided on creating a blog (here you are!) that I would not only discuss life's adventures, but I would begin a project utilizing this blog to full potential. What kind of project you ask? Below this babble of words, I will have a list of "50 Things To Do When Bored" and, for the next 50 days of my life, I will complete one task each day and will blog about the adventures, emotions, blah, blah, blah, that I begin to experience and hopefully love! Hopefully maybe you might get inspired out there to do a task from this list when you are feeling summer boredom or the school season is making you crazy! Everybody needs a break some time in the day! :)

50. Make your own list of "50 Things To Do When Bored!"

I had a blast making this list. It is exciting to think of things that I might not do everyday and decide that I will incorporate them in my life. Not all of these on the list are hard, but some of these tasks do involve a little push and movement from the culprit (me!). 
I hope, from these next 50 days, I will be happier that I decided to do this "50 Things To Do When Bored" list. I can already tell that I will have fun and hopefully make someone else's day happy throughout the way, too.

I hope I can inspire you to go out there and try this one day! It might not be easy, but life isn't easy, and I would say that it is fun to create a challenge! Good luck to you all out there.
