Yes Binging

I've found that my life is very very predictable recently and I want to shake it up a bit. The easiest way for me to do so is to go on what's called a Yes Binge. James Gunn (of Slither fame) went on one and wrote about it a couple months ago. He described it as such:
A Yes Binge is basically making a commitment for six months to say "YES" to anything you're on the fence about. If it's an automatic "no," say "no," but if you have to think about it, say "yes." This has been a blast for me, since I'm usually pretty stingy with my time, both socially and work-wise. Now I'm overbooked and tired as hell from going out most every night, but I'm happier than I've been in a long time too. So, if you find yourself in a rut, try out a Yes Binge.
So that's what I'm doing. I'm going to say "Yes" to things I normally wouldn't. I started this Great Experiment off by going Ice Skating (oooh big step there!) and getting my hair cut. Both of which turned out well. So, feel free to abuse me with this, and constantly remind me that I have to say "yes" to any iffy call. Obviously I won't say yes to anything since automatic no's still get a "no", but it should be fun and/or interesting!

Feel free to leave comments about yes binges you've been on! (Or on if you think my new haircut looks alright)
