When I was a little kid sitting at the dinner table I wasn’t allowed to leave the table until everything on my plate was gone (Thank god I wasn’t a picky eater). But because my parents enforced the idea ‘Don’t knock it until you try it’, I was always willing to try something new. This all of course stemmed from food, but it grew into something much bigger. My mom began calling me Ariel, just like in Walt Disney’s Little Mermaid, gadgets and gizmos of plenty, oozits and whatsits galore… I wanted to try more. I found myself loving new stuff. I’m talking about E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. I love trying new shoes, clothes, makeup, computer games, kitchen utensils… you name it I want to try it. And if it turned out I didn’t like the things I tried, that’s okay, at least I can say I did try. It seems like more and more people, mainly kids and teenagers, say they don’t like something before they have even tried it. How can you possibly know you don’t like something before you have even tried it yourself?
I find that in our world the only way to keep up and stay intelligent, is to always be aware of new things. Whether its trying new food or jumping out of a plane, to try something new is always enlightening. With that in mind, my approach on this is to be a ‘yes’ person. I want to say yes to trying something new. I don’t want to be 75 years old some day, and think back to a time when I had chances, and I turned them down. I never want to say ‘What-if’. That’s what Ienjoystuff is all about, trying something new.
