I started 2011 in a funk. Feeling down, I decided to jump start the year with an ambitious plan of doing something "different" every day for the month of February.
I committed myself to the idea by telling my friends and soliciting their suggestions. I deliberately left the definition of "different" vague: something sufficiently outside my normal routine. Eating at a vegetarian restaurant would qualify (I'm a pretty dedicated carnivore), ordering pizza from a new place would not.
After soliciting some more ideas from Reddit and Ask Metafilter I had two dozen good ideas and a couple solid plans.
Apologies for the unpolished writing. It's difficult to come up with, plan and execute something new every day and write about it. Also, posts may lag events by a few days.
