Last week, we asked five Daily Muse writers to take on a challenge during the month of October as part of our first-ever 30-Day Challenge event.
They’re now a week in—how do you think they did? Read on for how they’ve fared so far and the (pretty hilarious) bumps they’ve encountered along the way.

Every day this month, Lauren plans to do one thing she’s scared of. This week, she thought she’d struggle finding something new to overcome every day, but turns out, opportunities readily presented themselves. Read on for her tales of facing her boss, her friend, and, yes, the dark.
Even when you live in a big city, it’s easy to get stuck in your own little world, so Megan is making it her goal to talk to strangers every day. This week, she found that’s easier said than done, but she was able to squeeze in a few conversations—with people on her train, with a crazy cat lady, and with a scary woman who taught her an important lesson.
Angeline is challenging herself to bring her lunch to work every day—a task, as she found, that doesn’t quite come naturally to her. From the low points (cereal) to the high (a tasty sandwich), see how she fared this week.
