2014: Your new year

It's a new year, so why not do some new things? From hobbies to bucket list items, we've got you covered with 100 new ventures to try out in 2014.

10 New things to try just for you

2014: Your new year

Get a self-portrait made

Whether it's painted or taken by a professional photographer, your family and you will love having an important keepsake around.

Become scuba certified

Not only is this venture awesome for traveling to exotic islands, you can even use it for college elective credits.

Buy the perfect LBD (little black dress)

Don't wait until NYE or the cocktail party invite. Find yourself the perfect LBD to wear for special occasions or just because it's date night.

Learn a new language

Plan a vacation and learn the language of the locals. If you're not up for intensive classes, learn phrases like "I love you," "thank you" and "you're welcome" — it never hurt anyone.

Go tech free

Lose the phone completely for a day or perhaps even more to give yourself a much-needed tech break.

Home alone

It may sound crazy, but ladies with kids know that an entire day alone at home, watching sloppy TV and cheesy magazines, is rare.

Fairy tales

Re-read your favorite children's book. Not for the kids, but just for yourself.

Start a journal

Whether it's writing the old-fashioned way with a pen and paper or on a private blog, you will certainly not regret documenting your thoughts and life events.

Motivation jar

Take on one of the new hobbies or exercises we've mentioned and motivate yourself with a reward. Once you hit your goal, pay yourself out with something new.

Go for the dream career

You may not land your dream career in 2014, but that certainly doesn't mean you can't start trying. Get on LinkedIn and start networking. Pave your way to your goals by starting now, which is always better than never.
