I'm turning 40! I want to mark the year by doing 40 things, or one activity 40 times. Suggestions?

In about 3 months I will be celebrating my 40th birthday. I'm pretty excited- my 30's were awesome so I have high expectations for my 40's. I'll be doing something on my birthday to celebrate but I also want to have some sort of ongoing activity to mark the year. For example, a friend turned 30 this year and she is marking it by eating 30 different cakes (just a slice, not the whole thing!) over the whole year. I love this idea but 40 cakes is a lot and I don't want to copy her.
If it helps: I'm a high school teacher. In my spare time I knit a lot, draw and work in my sketchbook (although not much lately), cook/bake, walk, play with the kitties. Mr. Sadtomato may or may not join in on the fun. I'm in Vancouver, BC.
Some suggestions I have had so far:
-40 different restaurants (this again is a lot of eating out and expensive)
- A list, 40 lines long, of people who've had a positive influence on you (that you'd be happy to see again) or ideas that you'd like to carry into the future?
-40 different chocolate tastings? 40 acts of kindness? 40 photos of your favourite things in a collage?
-Try 40 new things/experiences (I like this a lot but am having trouble coming up with enough ideas to make it work)
(please feel free to add details to these or make an argument why I should do one of them.)
What are your suggestions for my year long "40 things to do for my 40th birthday" quest?
