Feel Free #1 - #5
My mindset has become "Don't waste any opportunities whilst you still have them". A lot of people would like to try something new everyday. It can be as simple watching a new film, a new episode of a TV show or reading the next chapter in your book. When you have the time and energy, always do your best to take the opportunities that are given to you.
08/01/13 - Feel Free #1 - College Library
If you are a student at Cardiff and Vale College (CAVC), you are able to borrow 8 DVDs at a time for free. I do this regularly. I have nearly watched all the anime in my college library, whilst beforehand I had only watched a few Ghibli films. I have now become a massive film lover.
09/01/13 - Feel Free #2 - Random Act of Kindness
The lady at my local corner shop was moving to London to retire. As one of her loyal customers, she gave me a free bag of sweeties. This made my day.
15/03/13 - Feel Free #4 - Trans Voices Event
The opportunity to have my voice heard as a trans person and meet other like-minded people was great.
23/03/13 - Feel Free #5 - National Museum
I enjoyed a trip to the museum with my mum. The thing that stuck out for me the most was seeing a head sculpture of Leo Abse. On the sculpture it explained that he helped decriminalise homosexuality and liberalise divorce. He dressed very flamboyantly for the meeting of the chancellor.
Note from Sub-Ed Tom: Why not start your own series on new experiences? You could use your own series title, your own hashtag, or, for example, #newexperiences.
