30 Is Coming And I Wanna Do Things…

30 is coming. We’ve started the countdown. We’re within a month. And there’s no turning back now.

Earlier I put together a list of 30 Things About Me. And I’ve written a post of the things that I dream about accomplishing in sports. Those pieces got me thinking about some of things that I hope to accomplish in a more realistic light.

Let’s take a look.

Write a book: Maybe it will be about baseball. Maybe I’ll finish the novel. Maybe it will be something new and exciting. Any way it comes, I’d welcome it.

Set foot on a big league baseball field: Toronto would be ideal since I’ve been a fan all my life. But as far as this one goes I’d be just as glad to step on the field in Arizona or Miami or Atlanta. I love the Blue Jays, but I love baseball more.

Play guitar: I know that this one requires some work (lots of work) on my part. But every time I hold a guitar in my hand I wish I knew how to play it. I hope that at some point I make the commitment to learn. P.S. it’s weird to me that for the last 10 years or so many people have assumed that I could play guitar. I don’t have any idea why they think that way.

Sing with a band: I don’t really want to be in a band. Although that sounds like it would be really cool. But I would like to stand on stage with a band and sing for some folks. It’s been a blast when I’ve done it before. Getting to do it again would be bad ass.

Quit smoking: In fact, I’m doing that right now. Follow the journey here, on Twitter, Facebook and now YouTube!

Talk with Kevin Smith: I know this one reeks of hero worship. And perhaps it is a little. But I really dig the content that he has produced in his career and think that he would be a pretty cool man to sit down with and just talk to. Between hockey, movies, music and life in general I’m sure we could find some talking points.

See Paris again. And Nashville for the first time: I’ve written about wanting to see those cities. I’ve dreamed of the trips. Man it would be great to see the art and history in France while eating cheese and drinking wine and then flying to the Country Music Capital and visiting the Opry and the bars and listening to real good music.

Interview people for the blog: I felt really lucky to have interviewed David Testo with Rannie for our photojunkie.ca piece earlier in January. And it felt really good to sit down and write the post after. I would like to do more of that. If you have a great story that you want to share or think there’s someone that needs to have theirs told please let me know or put me in touch with them. I’d love to feature more people content in the future.

Get into fantasy baseball: It seems funny to think that I’ve never really played a full season of fantasy baseball given that I love the game, players, stats and all of the things that come along with it. If you want me in your league (where I’ll probably finish last) please drop me a line!

To be honest with you there are a lot of things that I would like to do in my life. But some of them are goals now that won’t be goals later. That’s the way my life has always been.

It started with “play pro baseball” and “be a cop” when I was a kid and has evolved to the things that I wrote about here today.

My fingers are crossed that I keep having dreams and achieving goals and that you do too. It keeps life fun and exciting and relevant.

Keep up the good work kids. Smile.

    I think you should interview everyday heroes. You post a lot about your city, and how much you love it. I know there are plenty of people who’s good nature and kind-heartedness go unnoticed. Even though this idea has been done a hundred times over, why not make it a hundred. and one! You would get to meet new and interesting people, showcase lesser known charities, bring more awareness to certain topics, and write about it! It combines everything you love!
