I've been thinking a lot about the way I think - specifically, trying to be more open minded to things I normally would dismiss.

This actually started as something of a New Year's resolution (I never do this) to try to diversify my closet. One day I looked in there at all the grey t-shirts and vowed to change. Since then, I've managed to buy a bunch of (non t-shirt) shirts that look great on me that, 6 months ago, I wouldn't have looked twice at on the rack. I'm currently rehabbing my shoe buying tendencies (helped along by the generous Meridith) and eventually I'm going to get to my endless collection of jeans.
So if this new openness has worked for my wardrobe, why not for everything else in my life?

I've mowed the lawn twice now since Theseus left - never thought I'd do that. I bought my first tube of lipstick (love it). A few months ago I reached out to a WWII veteran and made him my friend; yesterday I drove to his house and we went swimming. I swallowed back my intense fear of paperwork and I'm finally going back to school in September. I'm organizing a large family yard sale in August. Later this month (when I visit Theseus in Austin), I'm going on a Segway tour, into a bat cave, and will finally meet in person a wonderful woman I've known for years online. Recently I started weight lifting with a friend from work.

My life just feels so full of possibilities.

Some other new things I am currently interested in:

- traditional Japanese music
- BMW Minis
- recycling (taking it very seriously now)
- purchasing investment properties

Oh, and one last adventure into new territory - my vegetarian pregnancy book arrived in the mail today. :)
