New Day #274

As many of you undoubtedly know, I started this project because I was feeling trapped by the mundane day-to-dayness of my life. So I decided to do something new each day to shake up my routine, to invigorate myself.

And it's definitely worked. I've pushed beyond boundaries and explored things I never would have done otherwise.

But lately, I've found the opposite to be true. That the obligation to do something new feels like a drag, and I find myself looking forward to completing my commitment and returning to a life less pressured by the need for novelty.

Perhaps that's the point of the project--to get a newfound appreciation for the mundane.

But I don't know. I'm not done yet. In the meantime, I wore my clothes inside out, which I think is really fashion forward. That said, I found it difficult to unzip my fly from the inside.

On the other hand, it makes your package look huge.

You need to think outside of the box. Not that you haven't been doing a good nob but wearing your clothes inside out is not new. You probably did it when you were a kid or drunk. You need to write letters to celebrities, politicians, or whoever and change lives for a day. Think Freaky Friday! Still love the blog.
