When is the last time you did something for the first time?

4Within the last week
2I can't remember
1Within the last month

I am assuming that you mean first time ever doing something not related to a certain day, because every new day anything you do is a first time on that day.
So in that case "I can't remember".

Yesterday - I tried calamari... and as I suspected, the flavor wasn't that bad, but the texture was awful. Now I've been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, and gave it away.

Within the last month I tried buying some prescription sunglasses using one of those on-line eyeglass shops.

I'm struggling to come up with something notable. I'm sure it would be easy to think of something minor (like the first time I read a particular book). Or, even something significant, but not something I'll do again. I visited Bermuda for the first time a few months ago, though I probably will never do that again (nothing against Bermuda per se, just too many other places I could go).

In the last week. I backed out of something that cost me a lot of money (more than a month's post-tax/pension pay, including part of the cost which was the single biggest payment that I have ever made on anything, ever) but it was definitely the right decision for me.

1 or 2 years ago I went to see a baseball game in Denver the first time in a very long time

Are they any good?

I ended up getting some Serengeti Drivers which I've always liked as regular sunglasses. I like the prescription ones too but they're definitely not the less expensive glasses that I was thinking of when I first started looking online.

Yesterday, I "Linked In" to a guy I met on the bus, and I traveled across my city via a series of skywalks.

I am learning to program using Javascript at work, so there's something new every day.

You backed out? What happened?

I feel sad(but lucky) to see that so many people can't think of anything recent.

Well I made this survey because of something I did that day. I just didn't answer.

I broke a security tag off pants. The store forgot to take it off. It did not ruin the pants. It wasn't the inky kind.

I signed up to sit my last postgraduate medical exam in a fit of motivation. Bad idea. It's far too soon after my most recent one and I got completely wound up about it. I just need a bit of a break before I tackle another one. I'm working full-time as it is, so any revision has to happen in my free time. It was a lot of money to walk away from, but it really wasn't worth what it was doing to me. I'm not really put to rights yet, but I definitely feel better than I did.

Alarms used to go off all the time when I left stores. For a few years, I was half convinced that I'd developed some sort of magnetic energy. My brother-in-law somehow makes clocks stop with his very presence, so it's not so far-fetched. One day folding laundry, I discovered a security tag attached to the pocket, inside an ancient pair of jeans.

Working full-time makes it super hard to be a student. I've been co-oping full-time for the past two terms, and I am too exhausted to cook or clean after work... let alone - study.

We signed up for a family membership at the YMCA like a week before Todd developed problems with extreme vertigo. He's been out of work for months, unable to drive or walk around much. We haven't been there a single time. I'm canceling the membership(for now) tomorrow.

Vertigo is horrible. I get it occasionally and it's a very unpleasant sensation. Thankfully, my episodes have only ever been brief. I've met a few patients who have had much more long-term vertigo and unless you can find and treat the underlying cause, it can be very disabling.

I have also had problems with extreme vertigo. Ever since I was a kid, our family vacations are on a houseboat at the same lake. We still get together and go every few years, but while most of the family stays a week or two, we just stay for a weekend: 2-3 days. The last two times that we returned, I had vertigo for months after. Sadly, I don't think I'll go on any more of those trips.

It still returns occasionally - sometimes while sitting, I feel like I am flopping sideways, and when I'm standing at the sink, I feel like I'm swaying(like being on a houseboat).

Todd just received a diagnosis: Meniere's Disease. I haven't really done a LOT of reading on it yet; however, on the surface, it sounds very much like the issues I've had as well. Particularly the pressure and hearing loss.

I've just been flitting on and off SC lately, so just catching up with replies now. How is Todd getting on? Menieres can be quite challenging.

Today I mixed ketchup and mustard together and spread it on a hot dog bun.
