Dan and The Project: 366 Things


I want to introduce you to a friend of mine.  This is Dan.  Dan is not a friend in the traditional sense of the word, he is an internet friend.  Not a real friend then, you might think, but I feel like I know him quite well at this stage, I am more in touch with what’s going on in his life than a lot of other people I know and he makes me laugh almost every day.

The reason I’m only introducing him now is because this week marks the end of his project, and now that I won’t be hearing his goings on as much, I’ve realised how much I’ll miss it. 

Dan’s project is based on a very simple idea: doing one brand new thing (that you’ve never done before), every day for a year.  Lots of people might come up with this idea, but I don’t know of anyone else who would have the commitment it takes to carry it out. 

Here are some of my favourites reads (you should read them too, but make some time because this blog is very addictive and you will end up wanting to read it all…):

Thing 6: Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes (literally)


Thing 40: Fly a Plane

Plane Flying 015

Thing 69: Meet a Porn Star


Thing 198: Free Hugs


Thing 268: Nap in a furniture shop


Thing 296: Dress as a woman


Thing 344: Sleep Rough


Thing 355: Walk a Cat


Thing 359: Walk on Fire


Thing 360: Swim in the Shannon

Swim 3

Congratulations Dan on finishing the project.  Some man.

Oh my gosh, I can see how you got addicted to his blog of activities. It takes a lot of dedication for someone to do something like this. (That porn star picture is hilarious). I met a porn star once too! She was super nice.

This is a final test of gentleman; his respect for those who can be of no possible service to him.
