Hey there Bears!
I'm back with another month's worth of 'New Things' so let's have a look!
1.)Ate Rock Crab
Surprised to say, I never had tried eating crab before this month. I'd seen other people eat it and it seemed like way too much effort for a small bit of meat so I'd always skipped out on it. CHPG was really wanting some so I took him to Ports O'Call where we picked some up. He made a little crab boil for the both of us since I had been telling him at the time that I wanted to do one. Granted, it is A LOT of work, I kind of enjoyed the whole messy thing.
2.) Featured in a Pixlr Challenge
I've been trying to actively grow my Instagram and Twitter following so I decided I was going to join the Pixlr Challenges over on Instagram. The first challenge that I tried was the collage challenge. The same day, they featured my picture in a repost. I think that's pretty cool.
3.) Joined a Twitter Chat
Since I'd decided to actively grow my Twitter followers I decided I needed to join a Twitter Chat. I'd been searching for blogging chats but I can't seem to get the timing down for most of them, or I'm at work so I can't join. I DID find on that I can manage to join. The Travel+Leisure TL_Chat on Tuesdays. I usually participate while I'm on the train on the way to work after school.
4.) Played the Lottery
I mentioned to you in the January Edition of 'New Things' that I don't really play the lottery. It was the weekend of the Grand Prix here in Long Beach and CHPG had never been to it before so I got tickets and we went. California Lottery had a booth set up so he bought a couple tickets. I had never played the kind where you pick your numbers, so obviously I had to pick the LOST numbers. Yes I'm a nerd. Tell me something I don't know.
4.) Dan Brown 'Inferno' and Amy Poehler 'Yes Please'
Two new books that I started reading last month. I haven't actually finished them yet because I've been swamped with midterms and now frappy hour at work but so far, 'Inferno' has been such a twist of events like I expected it to be. That's one of the reasons I love Dan Brown as an author. As for Amy's book, I'm maybe half way through it and it's pretty good. I don't really have that much of an opinion on it yet though. I'll have to see when I'm actually done with it.
5.) F16 Flight Simulator
Remember earlier I said that I took CHPG to Grand Prix for the first time? Well there was another booth set up that did flight simulations. Simulations of four different types of airplanes, but I chose the F16 for us. I mean, it's one of the things on my bucket list and the likelihood of that actually happening is small, so I figured this might be the next best thing, right? Right.
So that's it for me. What new things have you done in the past month? I'd like to hear from you in the comments!
