Is there anything that you're putting off because you're nervous to try it?

I’ve always wanted to do crazy stuff like put the wind to my back and pull up stakes, go where my whimsy takes me. Then I think, “Yeah, and then how are we going to pay the bills?”

Bastilla, a Moroccan dish that uses filo dough and has a chicken filling. I think I can do it, following the recipe, but I haven’t done it.

I have a motto I like; You don’t know if you don’t try. It usually works all through life. Sometimes I find gold, sometimes I find crap, sometimes I find mediocre. But I always find something.

Move away from this town, see the world, do something real. I have the means, I have a plan, but i’m terrified of change.

I’ve always wanted to skydive, but I am absolutely terrified.
Roller coasters, no problem, I’ve even done one of those bungee swings, but something about skydiving really frightens me. I think it’s the fact that the chute could fail.

@Crumpet it is soo worth it, its not like anything else.

I have a list of people that I would dearly love to kill. I’d settle for maiming them, but I can’t even bring myself to do that little bit.

@Mariah I’ve screwed up things sexually before, probably just about everyway possible. That shit today was way more scary. Just relax with the right partner and you’ll be just fine.

@imgr8 it will happen at some point!

Also, something else I would like to do is go travelling, but just on my own, and rely on meeting new people breifly for any social interaction, before moving onto the next place.
It’s a liberating thought, and I’m sure it would help me ‘find myself’.
It’s a scary thought at the same time though!

Make Tiramisu. It is my favorite dessert and not every place makes it the same . I only know of one place that makes it to die for. I tried to recreate it once but its more expensive to try to make my own than to buy it. It totally tasted like crap. I don’t know if it was me or the wrong recipe. There are at least a dozen variations and I hate wasting food.

Packing up all my stuff and leaving the country. Stuff is too hectic in my life with no signs of letting up. I was on vacation and seriously considered not going home. It took all I had to return. I just don’t know how to start a new life, especially in a different country.
And Butt sex with the boy toy. He’s large :/

I always find it hard to start writing projects. It takes me ages to get into them and partially it’s that lack of confidence in what I am doing. Once I get started I am usually fine, but I do dither about before starting quite often.

I’d say moving to the UK, I just feel so negative about it. I feel very much in between a rock and a hard place not nice feeling at all.

I cant realy think of anything. Anything I want todo, I just do it. Yea I may not be great or even good at it, but at least I tried. And sometimes you find something you love that you never suspected you would. Only thing I havent done that I want to are things I cant financially afford to do….yet.

@imgr8 Do it. Once you take that leap and move you’ll just be stuck asking yourself WHY THE HELL DID I WAIT SO LONG?!?
