Windfall Woman

Life and times of an older Brittany Murphy look-a-like still working as a sales executive after experiencing a life changing windfall a year or so ago

Here's what I would attempt to do if I knew I could not fail.

It is only fair that I reveal my answers! So here they are, in no particular order:

(1) Sing with a band in public
(2) Run a 10K race
(3) Knit a sweater
(4) Apply to an Ivy League School for a Master's and Doctorate degree in English
(5) Learn to play the guitar -- like really!
(6) Plant an herb garden in pots in my kitchen; use the fresh herbs in recipes

I really like # 1, 2 and 3... I crochet, but only simple things, like blankets and scarves... Grandma Whitcher knitted, my other grandmother, Grandma Offutt crocheted... but it was my MIL who taught me to crochet...

while perhaps you don't have a guarantee about pass or fail, you certainly have an opportunity to try some of these things... failure isn't always a bad thing, because it is one of the ways in which we gain new skills...

anyways, just my 2 cents...

HBP!

I agree. Take a stab at some of that stuff!

6) is certainly do-able! We're doing it already! The herb garden part. Waiting for it to grow fairly enough before I can start using 'em in my recipes!

I've done a few of those things . . . they're all things that it doesn't matter if you do well at at first, and great fun to try.

I love cooking with herbs, and they're surprisingly easy to grow.

And, if you learn to knit or crochet, the first thing you make is a dishrag. Not a dish cloth, a dish RAG. That way you can mess up as much as you want and it will still be perfect for its intended use! :)

Learning to play an instrument is fun, too--and one of the best things about it is that everyone starts out bad at it. :)

Like you, I think I would try some physical challenges - like climbing a mountain and running a marathon.

you know on second thought - i think i would apply to an ivy league school for a masters/doctorate also.

and if you would like to run a 10k- here is a great program to start with.
i used it to run my first 5k one year ago and now i am training for a marathon!

If your windfall permits it, go for the Masters and the Doctorate!
With an unusual chance such as you have, it would be a shame to let it go anywhere else!
