I recently ran across zero to hero , a learn-to-blog, 30 day thang, and thought that it could be a part of my 52 week, do something new or interesting and fun that I have not done for a very long time plan for 2014. since coming up with this idea, I have been developing a list of activities that I am looking forward to doing over the next year. Keeping a blog for the year was the first item.
Personal introduction: I am a teacher by trade, but a farmer at heart. The past three years I’ve been studying herbal medicine, as well as continuing my job, so (despite studying in an amazing program) it was a period that centered on the academic. There was not enough physical activity, I had too few non-academic adventures, and less fun social time that I would have liked. I plan to change that this upcoming year.
I am a gardener with an interest in permaculture and organic cultivation methods. I enjoy yoga and walking and live theatre. I read too many light-weight detective novels. Sometimes I skip too many meals and sometimes I eat too much sugar. I am fascinated by biology and natural history.
I chose to start a blog partly because it makes me slightly nervous, and it feels like time to start pushing new boundaries to prevent myself from getting stale. Also, I used to love to keep a journal, but have not kept one in years. A blog tracking my year of new and re-newed experiences seemed like it could assist in keeping me on track with that.
