June 8th

It’s my birthday today. 36! Some of the major events that are happening today:

The PC party has a majority government for the provincial election which means Doug Ford is the Premier.

Anthony Bourdain has committed suicide, just days after Kate Spade took her life as well.

And I have injuries and bruises from rugby. Who would have thought that I would be playing with kids still in high school on my team? This is definitely a new era in hitting your mid-thirties.

As a challenge to myself, and to defy that saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” I am going to do/learn/explore 36 new things this year. It’s a revamped idea to a bucket list, which I am calling my birthday list. At the moment I have 20 items and will look to fill another 16 in the coming months. Check out my list:
