I’d definitely partake in the things I already do in my free time right now (excercise, cooking, reading, wedding planning), but things that I don’t currently do that I would like to do are:

Volunteer at an animal shelter

Volunteer for an organization that helps people (i.e. not animals)

Join an orchestra and play my violin in it

Go to culinary school

Join a dance team

5. Get organized.

The list goes on and on.

1. Travel

2. Nap. I really think the US should institute a napping policy! Who wouldn’t love an hour nap every afternoon?!

3. Take guitar lessons

4. Volunteer at an animal shelter

5. Cook amazing meals every night

ETA: It’s funny this thread was started. Fiance and I were just talking about what we’re going to do WHEN we win the lottery tonight. We’ve got a ticket and a dream!

1. Catch up on sleep

2. Finish the script I’ve been working on for the past 5 years (supposed to be sending it out this fall… maybe… the biggest step forward is that my co-writer had two of her other scripts on stage this spring)

3. Read the C.S. Lewis Anthology sitting on my bookshelf

4. Volunteer at my old camp (would also require being near the Susquehanna, not the Brazos)

5. Start Riding again, maybe start Sidesaddle

6. Actually practice my music as opposed to sight-reading it at practice

7. Relearn Hebrew (which I NEED to do for this fall) and go back over Greek.

8. Learn Tin Whistle properly, with ornamentation that I skipped the first time

1. Finish getting my degree. 

2. Travel! Fiance and I really have a hankering to go to Ireland and extend to Europe. 

3. I have three books that I’ve started reading..I’d love to finish them.

4. Start pilates. We’ve established the unlimited funds thing, right? πŸ™‚

5. Volunteer somewhere. Probably an animal shelter.

6. Organize our teeny apartment. We’ve lived here for 4 months and still have things in boxes!

@KatNYC2011: I’m moving in July, just north of London near Cambridge. I’m probably going to blog about the move, culture shock, what it’s like to be an American living in a foreign country… that sort of thing. I’m also going to blog about decorating our new house :). I have a bunch of friends who requested I start one so that they could keep up with me while I’m there.

@zippylef: I have a friend studying there and she has yet to run out of stuff to talk about when it comes to an American in London. Good Luck!

@zippylef: I would love to follow your blog (especially the moving/culture shock piece) since I will be following you across the pond in October.

That is of course if you don’t mind.

@KatNYC2011: Sure! I don’t know how helpful the actual move thing will be though. We’re moving with the military, so some things may be different than it would be for a civilian. We’re chosing to live off base though, so we will be doing a traditional house/apartment hunt.
