I’m going to try something new, besties. I was thinking about branching off and creating a separate blog called “Lisa Tries New Things” where I can publish all of my posts about the exciting and fun new things that I try, but Boyfriend told me I should keep it all here on Damsel because I’ve worked so hard to get the amazeballs following that I have. And like almost always, Boyfriend is right, so I will incorporate Lisa Tries New Things into my Damsel blog and see how that goes. So when it’s a post about a new adventure (like my previous hot yoga post) or a new and probably disgusting sushi dish that I’ve tried, I will use my Lisa Tries New Things header for it. Don’t worry though, I will still post about embarrassing hospital visits. I know those are your favourite.

Anywho, here is the premise for my Lisa Tries New Things posts:

As you can probably tell because you know an awful lot about me by now, up until recently my idea of being adventurous was to sign in to Netflix on a Friday night and watch some kind of rock climbing thriller in my North Face sweater, or maybe go to a cafe and suffer through a greek salad just to boast about how varied my diet is. There was a period of a few months where I traveled for work and did some awesome things I never thought I would do (tripping up in front of Philip Seymour Hoffman on the Empire State Building being the example that always comes to mind) and that got me thinking that this whole being adventurous thing is actually fun and I need to do more of it. I thought I would have to travel to have those adventures but then I realized there are a trillion (huge exaggeration) things here in St. John’s, Newfoundland that I still haven’t tried out yet. So these posts will be my adventure chronicles. You can look forward to such things as:

-Lisa trying sushi
-Lisa trying hot yoga (done and done)
-Lisa trying lukewarm yoga
-Lisa trying wall climbing
-Lisa trying pottery class
-Lisa trying not to die while zip lining
-Lisa trying to stay awake past 10 pm

and so much more!

I will try a bunch of things that take me out of my comfort zone (which is a fancy way of saying off my couch and heating pad).

I am also up for suggestions from local followers about things for me to try in St. John’s. Heck, tell me about things in other parts of Newfoundland and maybe I will get off my ass and go there!

As some scholars would say: yolo.

And I will now leave you with a clip from one of the greatest, most underrated movies of our time that has nothing to do with anything I just wrote about:

    This made me smile! For one, I’m sooo behind on my reading and was happy to see your post come across the WP reader. Secondly, I love the concept and look forward to seeing your new adventures (and their results!!). I have 2 blogs and was actually contemplating a third (just for fiction) and decided that I already hear too many voices…a third probably wasn’t a good idea 🙂
    Can’t wait to read more, Lisa! Sorry that I’ve been such a bad reader of late!

    You should try all of the various temperatures of yoga. If there’s ‘hot’ and ‘lukewarm’, I’m sure they’ll go down to ‘freezing’ and beyond to something like ‘absolute zero’.

    Lisa, I just stumbled (funny how that happens!) your interesting blog. Best with trying new things — lots of learning outside one’s comfort zone! I’ve visited Newfoundland twice and your province is full of amazing possibilities. The Cocky Romano video, esp. the meeting with the kids, was funny! Best. Brett
