While working for myself trying to get Model UN Camp up and running, I found that I wasn't finding time for personal activities or learning new things outside of the structure of my apartment-based company. To fix this, I posted a promise to Facebook that whatever my friends suggested I spend the next day doing, I'd devote myself to the most popular suggestion fully.
I got dozens of suggestions. The winning idea was to make dozens of sandwiches, and walk around New York City distributing them to the homeless and listening to their life stories.
I had one of the best days of my life, and decided to start doing this as a weekly activity. For half a year, I devoted my Thursdays to whatever my Facebook friends suggested I do. This ranged from "visiting every train station in NYC" to "making a documentary about my friend Miles." Reliably, every week expanded my horizons and made me love the project more.
I started a blog to chronicle what each week brought, and am in the process of bringing those blog posts back from the depths of the internet.
