101 random ideas. (part two)

Updated on July 3, 2012

The saga continues.

Thank-you for joining me in the second part of 101 random ideas, if you haven't read the first part yet don't panic you can find it on my profile or click on the link below.

I don't know what brought you here but I'm sure glad you came.

It maybe that you already have hobbies you enjoy doing or activities that keep you somewhat entertained but you want to try something new. It maybe that you are a little dissatisfied with life at the moment and are looking for something to make it a little more interesting. Or it maybe that you are looking for a life long project to work on and to have an aim for something to achieve.

Whatever the reason you're here I hope you find something you think you can try.

11. Send a random phone number a text and see if they text you back.

OK bear with me on this one I know it sounds like a bit of a waste of time and maybe even pointless, but random text messages being sent have lead to all kinds of amazing things happening all over the world.

Text media marketing is believed to be the future of advertising and some people have even gotten themselves married as a result of a text being sent to the wrong number. Random, yes. Pointless absolutely not.

12. Start a petition.

Feel passionately about something to make a stand for it? Is there an issue that you believe needs addressing seriously or know of people that don't have a voice. Petitions are an excellent way to make a real positive change in the world, if you feel strongly enough about a subject then chances are other people will too. Start a petition weather on paper or on-line and something incredible might just happen, like something actually getting done about it.

On facebook you can even start a petition page for free and get people to join you in your campaign, these can be just as effective as other forms of rallying.

13. Make a £1,000,000

I'm still working on this particular one myself, but don't think it can't be done because it absolutely can! Just the other day I can across a hub on hubpages that showed a guy with a $,1000,000 google check. He was the founder of plenty of fish and his simple but effective idea netting him all that money.

Truth is there are at least a million millionaires on the planet and there is absolutely no reason why you can't be one of them. When I get my first $1,000,000 google check, you can be sure you will see it here first.

14. Demonstrate by marching in a protest.

A united front of like minded people walking together en masse can make a statement so loud that not even the deafest of politicians could ignore it. Marching for a cause, especially in great numbers will get an issue covered by the media and spread awareness quicker then almost any other method I know. Have an issue with pensions march! Have an issue with taxes, march! Have an issue with racism in football, march! March for justice, awareness and for the voice of others who can not or are unable to represent their own.

15. Take a photograph good enough to display.

Below I have featured a picture that I captured myself, I am very proud of it and I have added it to many places all over the Internet. I have received a lot of positive feedback from this image and its so rewarding to know that someone has appreciated your work.

The best thing is that anyone can take at least one good picture, even if its just on there phone.


16. Brake a world record.

There are millions of records that are just waiting to be broken out there. Everyone has a talent, skill or unique ability in them. Hone yours to it's ultimate capacity and become a record breaking champion.

For some ideas on record breaking attempts, try going through the guinness book of records and trying a few things out. They also have a website so that you can research the most recent statistics.

17. Give something away to charity.

Nothing feels quite as good as performing a selfless act and helping out a needy cause. Also you will be getting rid of something you don't want and making space for something that you do.

One persons junk is another persons treasure, the things that you give away because you don't want or need them any more are just the things that other people are looking for right now.

18. Write your will.

As morbid as this sounds writing a will is something we are all going to have to consider at some point in our lives. Deciding where all your worldly possessions are going to go and who's going to have the privilege of getting that ostentasious, ugly but probably quite valuable ornament. Is not going to be the easiest thing to decide, but it is a task worth doing, so that your loved ones won't have to worry about it when you have left this world for the next.

You can also compile a living will now days this ensures that people can enjoy your things now while you are still alive, and you can enjoy seeing them enjoy it too. After all, you can't take it with you so you might as well make the most of it while you're still here.

19. Volunteer an hour of your time and help out a good cause.

Believe it or not just one good hour of productive work can make a huge amount of difference. In June 2012 I ran the race for life, it only took me 47 minutes of my time to partially run, partially jog and partially walk five kilometres but it enabled me to raise nearly £100 for cancer research. That day over 3000 women ran and raised money, all in all over the year all the race for life events made £55 million! All those little sponsors added up to a huge amount of money.

Whatever you can give, even if its just your time, give it. An hour of your time might not be alot to you but it could be invaluable to someone else.

20. Design your own tattoo and get it done.

This is one thing I am just itching to do, I don't yet have any tatoos because I know that they are permanent and when I do get one done I want it to be right. It's got to say something about me, I want it to be unique, I want it in a place where I can cover it up or show it off and I want it to look good. As yet though I have been so indecisive about the whole thing I am not any closer to achieving this.

However you may know exactly what you want and where you want it, if it's something that you have always wanted to do then why not do it.

21. Make an impressive sandcastle.

Sandcastles are not just for kids you know, I spend a lot of time hopping all over the internet and discovering amazing new things, and the other day I saw a collection of images on sandcastles. But these were not any old sandcastles these were genuine epic feats of construction, and they really inspired me to want to go out and make my own statement sandcastle. It is not an overstatement to tell you that they were incredible and that the people who constructed them are truly talented. Next time you are at the beach, see if you have what it takes to make a spectacular sandcastle.

22. Be seen in public wearing a fancy dress costume.

Next month in the area where I live they are having a feary festival, yes feary not fairy. It was organised by my friend and she is asking everyone to dress up, now I am not adverse to donning the odd bit of elaborate clothing, when I was 17 I vividly remember dressing as Baby Spice of the spice girls for our works Christmas do, which was fun. However as good of an idea as it sounded at the time I am now feeling a bit nervous about it, but I am just going to bear in mind that it is just a bit of fun.

I would love to hear of your experiences with fancy dress, feel free to leave a message in the comments box letting us know what you were dressed as and for what reason.

      No one wants to be a Millionaire. What are you talking about? Its 10 Billion or BUST (If the US debt is in the 10 Trillions, why cant they spare me a Billion or two?)

      Nice ideas nonetheless =P
