Prompt: Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?

I want to try traveling to Europe next year. There’s a convention in Dublin at the end of August and I’ve never been to Ireland or any part of Europe. I’ve never been overseas. I really want to go and see Europe — do the come early/leave late plan that I employed in NYC. As far as trying something in 2010, I’d say going to NYC was a big thing that I did that worked out awesome and has left me definitely “homesick” for NYC. Coming home from there was the only time that I didn’t feel a flood of relief in returning to Chicago — a swelling feeling of homesickness understood and relieved as I saw the lights of the city; either from plane or by car. It really changed my perspective and made me wonder what I’d been missing. I so hope to return soon.
