Some people make life plans, some people make New Years resolutions, but if you’re like my friend Steve you make a 31×31 list. That’s a list of thirty-one things, ranging from taking a cooking class to skydiving to Vegas baby! by the time his 31st birthday rolls around next October. Genius! My natural dislike and complete incompetence with New Years resolutions has made this list format attractive, though I only have about eight months until my 32nd birthday August hence.

(Oof, thirty-two. Am I really going to be thirty-two? It feels like I just cracked a quarter century a couple of months ago.)

My intention is to update the blog, in it’s newly expanded not-just-for-food-anymore capability, to track my progress and hopefully share stories and photographs (see #21)

So here it is, thirty-two things I’m going to do by the time I’m 32:
