There is an old theory that says a person should be able to name at least 1 activity for every year they are old (42 years old = at least 42 activities). It sounds easier than it is. What's your favorite (excluding HP of course since obviously that is #1 for most).

(28) Intelligent Conversation
(32) Cuddling with Loved One
(33) Making People Think
(34) Stirring up debate to prove a point
(35) Stock Trading
(36) Investment Analysis
(37) Sitting by a Waterfall on a Warm Day
(38) Watching a Sunset with a Loved One
(39) Driving(fast, when the mood hits)
(40) Burning Downloaded Movies(no cost)
(41) Dreaming while I sleep and rejuvenate by body and mind.
I think I've done it.
Thank you for the challenge, it took some time to re-live my past to find things I like most.
In answer to your question - yes, I can list an activity that I enjoy for every year I am old.
Congrats! I seem to be stumbling these days but then I'm "a bit" older. So far I'm keeping up but whoosh, not sure if I'll be able to be = 10 years from now!
I've "stolen" a couple from you...I forgot about the bonfires but I do love them. I also love the idea of sitting by a waterfall on a warm day! I love the memory of my own hiking days and those beautiful waterfalls on warm days with the sun sparkling. Thank you both for your additions!
No problem. Like I said- it was a challenge.
Personally, I've made fires, such a campfires, but never did a bonfire. Wouldn't mind orchestrating one, sounds like fun.
How ever, you did say, favorite activity I learned. So, I never actually learned 'how to build a bonfire?".
But, it was a nice journey to live over in my mind. It was a cool trip, per se.
Okay my turn...I'm 26 so I need 26 things
3.horse back riding
7.collecting fairy figurines
8.collecting polished stones
12.haning out with friends
14.going out to dinner
15.walking to the store
16.word search games
17.engraving art fun
18.making seashell wreaths and picture frames
19.living for a year in Hawaii
20.cruising in the car
21.going to the movies
22.getting married to the love of my life
24.adopting kitties and playing with them
25.playing on the computer
26.going out walking along the beach in Cali and Hawaii with hubby
How did I do?
Ralwus - Yep, I'm definately nuts but hey it only helps me to have a great time with life!
Cagsil - never said "learned" - glad you want to try a bonfire sometime, put it on your "life list", invite all your friends and tell them to bring others - the more the merrier!
Crazdwriter - keep um coming, they get harder as time goes on...good luck, you've got a great list started!
hmmm....we shuold make these into hubs and then every year add a new one on your birthday....
Ohhhh GREAT IDEA, an "HP Birthday" hub category. Publish a work based on something off your favorite activity list (but the list would have to be published at the end of each work) I'm not sure my memory is that long - maybe HP can send us a reminder???
I like nutz. I'll put that on my list of favorite things to do, go nutz at times.
lol The Rope, send the hubteam an email for help there lol
But i do think that this would be a good idea for a hub...we can first do a hub on the list and then each year add a new activity, and then like you said in ohter hubs, write on one of those activities.
I think I'm going to have to try engraving art - sounds like a great idea for next year's new activity! Thanks for the idea...
Anytime...it's something you can find at Michael's...well hopefully you can lol. I have a hub on it too
