Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but never got around to starting (an activity, a hobby, or anything else, really)? Tell us about it — and tell us about what’s keeping you from doing it.

Not the usual PB&J, guys. “Omurice or omu-rice is an example of Yōshoku consisting of an omelette made with fried rice and usually topped with ketchup.” (Wikipedia.)
