I Want You To Control My Life For A Day

Hopefully I won't regret this.

Hey! I’m Spencer, and I’m going to let you (yes, you) control my life for 24 hours.

Why would I let random strangers on the Internet control my life for a day? It’s simple: For as long as I can remember, I’ve said “no” to just about every little thing that’s scared me.

But that’s about to change. I’ve been re-reading Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes, in which she says yes to every nerve-wracking thing that takes her out of her comfort zone.

So that’s where you come in. I want you to tell me everything you want me to do, see, eat, etc. in New York in 24 hours.*

Maybe you want me to wake up at 5 a.m. to run the Brooklyn Bridge while the sun rises.

Maybe you have a must-try dish at your favorite restaurant in Manhattan that I absolutely need to eat, and you want to suggest it.

Perhaps you'll want me to find the Naked Cowboy guy in Times Square and pose with him in my underwear. I don't know!

Or maybe you want to be a jerk and suggest that my coworkers shave off half my head.

It's honestly up to you! Use the DropBox below to suggest some cool, weird, wild, and hopefully nice things you want me to do, and I'll do as many as I can.

I'll be picking some of the best suggestions myself, but I'll also have my Instagram followers vote on which ones they want me to do, just so I don't have 100% control over everything.

My goal with this challenge is to finally let loose and have as much fun as possible, and hopefully this crash course Day of Yes will be the beginning of a much bigger change for me.
