084 Buy a new laptop

My laptop is almost pushing up daisies. My roommates stupid cat knocked over a glass of water on the coffee table and it got under the laptop and now the disk drive tries to eject 2-3 times when it boots up or down. And, for whatever reason both my USB outlets won’t work either which means I cannot utilize my mouse that is essential for illustrating (or anything else that plugs into the USB). I really just need to take it into the Mac Store and see if it’s fixable. Grr.

096 Reward self at halfway point of 101 goals

Okay so I looked into and the halfway point is 500 days from 09/09/09 (my start date) is January 22, 2011. I used this site, and am mostly linking it here for my knowledge throughout this list. Also, I’m aware the halfway point is 500.5 days.. so maybe I’ll wait til noon to reward myself 😉

083 Manicure tootsies monthly [5/21]

Still haven’t done this. Blah!

079 Introduce Soymilk into my diet (goal is complete when this is a regular staple in my fridge)

I’m either having cereal with soy milk or a soy latte’ tomorrow. I swear.

064 Finish homework the week it’s due

I turned in all the work that was due last Thursday today and it felt good. I also realized I’m not as far behind as I thought from missing the one day. Yipee!

003 Make a Geocache and stash it

I bought a tiny little book to stash in my geocache (I still need find a box, and items to put in it….)

077 Create a memory box

My little creative monkey wifey/roommate says she’ll help me with this, yay!

100 Create a workout mix 50+ songs (upbeat only) and create a 500+ all time greatest mix for iPod

I think some of this stuff is just going to have to wait until Little Man goes back to daddy’s. Four year old’s keep you busy!

049 Learn a new language via Rosetta Stone or something comparable (Spanish or Italian)

I’m thinking maybe I’ll learn German. And, possible considering a formal class in college – I’m still undecided.

010 Create a weekly cleaning schedule and stick to it

Honestly, I cook and bake. My roommate (wife) and I have decided I’m the cook she’s the cleaner 🙂 So this goal will stay in place for when I get my own place. But, as of now the extent of my cleaning is dishes daily and laundry weekly. Sometimes Ill clean the counters, stove or “my area” – the kitchen. My little housewife is the hard core cleaner though, scrubbing floors, deep cleaning the tub, windows, dust, the down and dirty stuff and I love her for it. In return I buy delicious, fresh and healthy foods then cook and bake up a storm. Yummy breakfast, lunch and dinners 🙂

055 Update 101 blog weekly [19/143]

I’m almost caught up, I need to update again before this weekend is over to get there.

070 Come up with a consequence for incomplete goals

For right now I’m going to say a $1 donation to the charity of my choice for each goal not completed. We’ll see how the money situation is closer to the end of this journey. So be advised this consequence may change.

094 Reserved for a knitting goal

I went to my storage unit and found my two huge tubs of lovely high quality yarn calling my name. I just couldn’t justify with the little space that I have now. Some rearranging needs to take place before I can bring in the yarn. To be continued…

057 Develop 5 more habits to make life more green [0/5]

I use so many fresh veggies, fruits, eggs, etc and really want to start a compost. I feel guilty putting the orange, lemon and lime rinds down the garbage disposal, I hate throwing away all my egg shells and coffee grinds. All these things equal delicious soil. But how do you do that on the third story of a Condo? This assists with my gardening goals and would save me $$ off soil which helps my financial goals. I think it’s important I find a way to make this work. See how I justified making this happen? I’m also about 30 minutes into an Ambien so who knows. Whatever. Do you have any advice or links?

I think I missed a week there, so I will update again on Sunday seeing what I’ve done this week. Now apparently I can’t post my Paypal donate button on here, but for some reason my livejournal works so here’s the link over there, if you’d like to donate to any of my goals (thanks in advance!). Real quick I updated The List page and made it a little more fancy if you want to take a gander over there.

084 Buy a new laptop

I think once I’m back to work I’ll be able to use some of my financial aid one quarter to get a new computer. I may opt for the Mac Desktop I just need a bigger monitor.

088 Hang pictures

I got a new framed photo of Marilyn of Vday from The Mister so I had to re-hang a couple, which is fine by me! Gorgeous photo.

096 Reward self at halfway point of 101 goals

I guess I should figure when that is….. Hmmmm.

083 Manicure tootsies monthly [5/21]

So last month when I did my toes all pretty with my new Avon metallic purple nail polish I was so excited! And get this, the color lasted without chipping until this week. Crazy eh? Crazy awesome, that’s what. Anyschmooze, I need to manicure again and I wish I had a new shade to try…..

079 Introduce Soymilk into my diet (goal is complete when this is a regular staple in my fridge)

How silly am I? I have had an un opened box of Soy milk in my fridge for almost a month! I’ve been waiting for our Cows milk to run out and had just bought 2 gallons around the same time as buying the case. Excuses, excuses!

006 Compete in The Daring Bakers

Evidently they changed their name and site to the Daring Kitchen since now they do baking and cooking challenges. The challenge this month is “Mezze” which is more of a type of eating style rather than recipe so I think I’ll hold out for a baking recipe 🙂

028 Donate 1,000,000 grains of rice [4,910/1,000,000]

I haven’t done this in months and months… woops!

037 Clean out shoe collection and donate no longer needed items

I found some shoes in on of the three plastic crates of have in my room full of shoes and started them. I just can’t seem to let go of shoes. Hence the goal.

055 Update 101 blog weekly [19/143]

Hopefully back on track here.

064 Finish homework the week it’s due

I thought this goal would be a breeze and it has thus far, but now I’m glad I made the goal. I have been sick since last Friday, so going on a whole flippin‘ week now. I thought I was on the mend and then I get a scratchy throat last night and woke up with no voice and a cough. Point being, there were two assignment due today that I did not turn them in because I didn’t use my time management skills too well this week.

This is the beginning of month 6, only 15 months to go. I feel like this past 5 months has gone by crazy fast! How about you?? Alright, let’s do this!

077 Create a memory box

I grabbed this from my storage unit so I can actually get started on in it. Problem? I have no idea what to put in it.

088 Hang pictures

Omigoodness I actually did this! Woot! I only scratched half of this off because the other part of the goal is to hang them when I get my own place again.

052 Put $0.50 in a jar (daily) or bank account (weekly) for 1001 days (CoinStar every 250 days for physical change)

Remember how I said last week that I CoinStar’d $11.56? Well, I moved that money back to my checking and may or may not have spent some of it. On a depressing note, all the money I’ve put into this savings account thus far I am going to need to use. I’m living on student loans and am not getting a tax return this year so…. yeah, I’m glad it’s there to use if need be.

029 Get to and maintain last goal weight [0/6]

I started a meal replacement diet using a protein shake in place of 2 meals a day and lost, like, a pound. Probably because my one meal of the day wasn’t so great, but you would think with consuming a lot less calories (the shakes were only 140 cals) I would’ve seen more, but noooo. So yeah I’m back up that pound after I got pissed at the stupid scale (not myself of course) and ate Taco Bell. Bleh!

And I still need to lose 6 pounds.

067 Maintain a 3.5 GPA each quarter (change if I feel I can maintain higher) [1/6]

Mid quarter quarter grades show me at 2 A’s and 1 B. Yay!

087 Complete 26 things [0/26]

Now that I have my camera I think I’m going to start this.

005 Cook 5 recipes from all my cookbooks

I brought my bookcase home from my storage unit and have a few of my cookbooks set up. Now I need to use them instead searching the internet every time I make something. Oh the internetz just makes things so much easier.

048 Visit Michelle at least once per year (budget with tax return to ensure this?) [0/2.75]

Soooo… as you may have already read, I will not be getting a tax return this year but there’s still time to save. Thanks super awesome ex-husband for claiming all three of your children, spouse, and home leaving me with only 1 deduction, college. Awesome, awesome, awesome! No, I’m not bitter at all. /sarcasm

047 Mail [Private] a postcard monthly [5/21]

SLACKER ALERT! I did not send one out in January, however I am sending two (one tomorrow) this month.  We are still close to the beginning of the month AND my goal month turns over on the 9th. So there!

See how I justify my slacker actions…. ?

009 Grow a Fruit/Veggie garden outdoors

I was so close to buying a Deck Garden starter kit at Bartells. I can’t wait for Spring!

036 Clean out storage unit and donate no longer needed items

On January 31st I moved all my crap from one storage unit to another and didn’t go through practically any of it. We had 2 hours to move all of my things… so there wasn’t much time. I did manage to grab a couple things I needed \and realized I don’t really have a lot of throw-away-or-donate stuff.

055 Update 101 blog weekly [18/143]

I’m keeping up pretty well, what do you think?

064 Finish homework the week it’s due

Totally on schedule with this. Except for waiting-til-the-last-minute thing….

068 Wash linens monthly [6/21]

Little Man had an accident so we did these early in the month. Done and done!

022 Go wine tasting

I found a new winery in my own town that just opened up. A couple people I know went there this weekend, so maybe since it’s so close I’ll actually do it.

093 Work on my penmanship

I am so slacking here. Because I’m on a computers so much its difficult to practice my penmanship. I’m just reminded every time I write, how much I dislike my handwriting.

098 Obtain a library card

I’m not working and in school two days a week. I have a four year old. Why haven’t I done this yet? My grandma took Little Man to the library and he even has a library card. Seriously, I need to plan this for sometime this week. Hold me accountable ok?

062 Create a moisturizing routine (you are not 27 forever)

I am doing really well on this so I’m crossing it off. If I slack, I’ll come back to it and put it back in bold.

052 Put $0.50 in a jar (daily) or bank account (weekly) for 1001 days (CoinStar every 250 days for physical change)

I almost want to cross this off. I have an auto payment come from my checking each week that trasnfers into a different banks savings account. Then I realized I still have like two years left on this, so I’ll leave it open. UPDATE: I CoinStar’d $11.56 on Wednesday of last week 🙂 I thought I would have more than that, damn pennies.

045 Work up to 200 sit-ups and 100 push-ups daily & 046 Work up to 200 squats daily (get all three apps on iPhone)

Omigosh why can’t I just start on this?! I look at it week in and week out and I even bought the apps for my phone. Gah! Someone, give me a nudge, a push… anything.

079 Introduce Soymilk into my diet (goal is complete when this is a regular staple in my fridge)

I bought a case of Vanilla Soymilk from Costco, but haven’t had any yet.. now I can put this “in progress” though. Yay!

029 Get to and maintain last goal weight [0/6]

I started dieting about a week ago replacing 2-3 of my 4-6 meals a day with a protein shake. They are 100 calories and 18g of protein in each scoop. I can’t stand the taste of it so I mix 6oz water, 1 scoop of shake mix and a couple shakes of cinnamon (for the after taste) and gulp the whole thing down. Within 10 minutes or so I feel full, it’s awesome. I’m going to weigh in tomorrow. Problem? I’m almost out of protein powder.

Oh and Thanks to The Mister for the cinnamon idea. 😉

020 Become active on my Flickr account

I have lots of pictures I’ve been taking since completing goal #030. However, they’ve been at events so I’ve been uploading them to Photobucket just so it’s easier to link the pictures. This needs to be rectified. This week.

064 Finish homework the week it’s due

So far, so good. I could stand to do it earlier, but I have completed all my homework assignments on time.

076 Become punctual and less of a procrastinator

I added the procrastinator part last night because my intention with the goal wasn’t just to show up places on time. It was to quit dilly dallying all the time. Like now, my homework is due tomorrow by 1pm and I’m here… blogging. Instead of reading two chapters and writing 700 words about said chapters. Ugh.

001 Produce a successful blog

I think I might be able to do this with my DezDeals blog, I just have more ideas for it than my other blogs. I’d still like to keep up with all of them because they are all outlets for different parts of me.

037 Clean out shoe collection and donate no longer needed items

How do you get rid of shoes? I mean really, it’s not like clothes that may not fit anymore or are completely out of style. They all still fit and are super cute. Crap, this is going to be a tough one.

009 Grow a Fruit/Veggie garden outdoors

I think I’m going to buy some those long planters when there is a sale so I can actually do this. Since I live in a Condo on the third floor.

047 Mail [Private] a postcard monthly [4/21]

Woops! Almost forgot about this one, hence the goal.

032 Collect 10 unique (pretty to me) sand/dirt from meaningful places to display in bottles (buy bottles from Goodwill) [0/10]

My idea on this is to pick one up at a time. I was there and wanted to buy all 10 but couldn’t do it, so I figure if I do one at a time that should be easier.

060 Read 50 books [0/50]

Now that I have the books ready I need to crack into one. How about this week?

077 Create a memory box

If I can get into my dark storage unit I will grab this so I can start on it.

088 Hang pictures

Same as up there. ☝

080 Wear a new hairstyle once weekly for a month [0/4]

I figure now that I actually have a new cut and color to show off I should get on top of this goal before my hair grows out.

094 Reserved for a knitting goal

How about I set this goal? Gosh. I need to get some knitting stuff out of storage for inspiration.

075 Create my family tree

I was talking to someone today, at random, about their heritage and it really re-inspired me to did a little deeper and find out some more about my family. Not just naming people in my family, but learning my heritage.

095 Give five random gifts per year [1/13.75]

I totally forgot I bought a random gift for The Mister two weekends ago. 🙂

As promised, here I am updating you on what I said I was going to do and what I actually did.

What I did:

✔ 083 Manicure tootsies monthly [5/21]

Wanna see?

Metallic purple polish

✔ 068 Wash linens monthly [5/21]

Actually I washed them today, but I changed the sheets Sunday.

✔ 040 Brush twice daily and floss at least once daily

New routine started. I always brush in the morning, but now Little Man and I will brush together before he goes to bed. Problem solved.

What I didn’t do:

☐ 002 Find a Geocache

I said Little Man and I may go for a “treasure hunt” but we didn’t end up doing it.

☐ 100 Create a workout mix 50+ songs (upbeat only) and create a 500+ all time greatest mix for iPod

As I said I plan on doing that this week, and that’s still a go but yeah.

☐ 045 Work up to 200 sit-ups and 100 push-ups daily & 046 Work up to 200 squats daily (get all three apps on iPhone)

Just keep putting this off….

☐ 079 Introduce Soymilk into my diet (go.al is complete when this is a regular staple in my fridge)

I totally spaced this, I went grocery shopping and everything and got milk but no soy.


P.S. I’m having issues adding my Paypal donate button for some reason WP won’t accept my HTML.

Every time I update, I go through The List and write down what I’ve been able to start on, what I want to start on or what I can cross off. I’ve realized that some of these things are going to take moneymoney I don’t have, being a full time student and all (for the next 2 years). I have roughly 2 more years to finish this and I’d like to complete the whole thing. With that being said I’m adding a Paypal Donate button shown below to The List page, so if you feel so inclined to sponsor a goal or more you have an option. Wasn’t that nice of me to do? I agree.


Onto the update!

002 Find a Geocache

I found a website where I can look up Geocache in my area, but it looks like people are pretty hard core and find them the day they’re placed. However the idea is to take a treasure, leave a treasure so it’s not a big deal. Maybe Little Man and I will go on a treasure hunt tomorrow?

024 Explore a ghost town

I searched for ghost towns in my area and came across an awful webpage about a place I think I may have visited when I was in grade school. Sounds like a good hike and unless I can find something closer I’d love to re-visit it.

060 Read 50 books [0/50]

I grabbed Stephanie Meyers Twilight series from my storage unit at the end of December and plan on reading them. That’s only 4 of 50, but I’ll get there.

073 Write self a letter to be opened on day 1001

I said last week that I was going to start on this letter this week and I have. I’ve decided that I will write several letters to myself all delivered on the final day of this project, June 6, 2012.

100 Create a workout mix 50+ songs (upbeat only) and create a 500+ all time greatest mix for iPod

I’m thinking I’ll make time to do this sometime in the next week which co-insides with goal #045 & #046.

083    Manicure tootsies monthly [5/21]

I’m doing this tomorrow.

038    Budget monthly (keep register daily, pay bills weekly or with paychecks) [5/21]

A little late in the month, but I completed my budget for the month. I’ve gotten rid of every luxury (minus Netflix at $9/month) and since I’m living off a fixed income (that I received at the beginning of the month) through March I’m just paying everything as soon as I’m billed for it.

052    Put $0.50 in a jar (daily) or bank account (weekly) for 1001 days (CoinStar every 250 days for physical change)

I love watching this money pile up and since it’s not in my everyday use credit union I don’t check it all the time, so when I do it’s refreshing.

091    Save and maintain at least $[private] in savings (separate from other money goals)

I dug up a bunch of change from my coin purse and truck and plan to hit the CoinStar and deposit into an account for this goal. Maybe after my tax return I can  put some more in it?

045 Work up to 200 sit-ups and 100 push-ups daily & 046 Work up to 200 squats daily (get all three apps on iPhone)

I got these apps a day or so ago and want to start them tomorrow, goal #100 is tethered into this too. I think I’ll start the workout before I actually get the songs together, but who know maybe tomorrow will be filled with Geocache treasure hunting, Mix making and a workout kind of day? I laughed a little out loud too, don’t worry.

Toldja. Didn't believe me DID YOU? $1.99 PER app too.

040 Brush twice daily and floss at least once daily

For some silly reason I haven’t been keeping up with the second brush, everyday. You would think not working would help with it, but I had a perfect little schedule at work for this routine. So back in the saddle tomorrow, I pinky swear.

079 Introduce Soymilk into my diet (goal is complete when this is a regular staple in my fridge)

I haven’t been into even trying this goal, I don’t know why I used to drink it all the time. I need to get milk tomorrow and I’m going to get little man some 2% and I’ll grab some soy.

029 Get to and maintain last goal weight [0/6]

Bleh.

049    Learn a new language via Rosetta Stone or something comparable (Spanish or Italian)

You are going to die! Look at this gem I picked up at the Dollar Spot in good ol’ Target’.

Spanish for DUMMIES

Hey. At least I’m trying, desperately.

030    Buy a new camera

Oh. my. God. I did it. I bought a brand spankin’ new camera. I got a sort of a bundle deal through Costco, I researched all my local electronic stores as well as the internet and found a smokin’ good deal!

The details: Nikon D3000 (body), 18-55mm lens, plus 55-200mm lens, 4GB memory card and carrying case.

The stock shot

Here’s a taste of this beauty of a machine. P.S. I had the edit the *&^$ out of it to get it on here. High quality! I. am. in. love.

We were making Rice Krispie Treats

009    Grow a Fruit/Veggie garden outdoors

Spring is around the corner and I cannot wait to start my little garden (on the deck of a condo). Also this means I’ll get to work on goal #011 too.

066    Unplug once a month [0/21] <—— BIG FAT ZERO

I am slave to modern technology. and my iPhone. and Netflix. and yeah well you get the picture.

099    Maintain a window seal herb garden

Again Spring. I-can’t-wait-for-you.

064    Finish homework the week it’s due

On track.

068    Wash linens monthly [5/21]

Doing them tomorrow. Wheeee!

Real quick, I updated my About Me section. Have a look. I’ll update you on all the stuff I say I’m going to do on Monday.

So apparently Winter Break from school also meant Winter Break from blogging. Well, it looks like goal #055 might be out the window 😦 Let’s see how to get back into the swing of things?? It’s a new year, so lot’s of new things to look forward to – that’s good right? Now let’s see what I’ve been up to the past month.

025 Recommend to me month

Here’s some things recommended to me that I’ll be working on:

  • Read: Four Agreements (Courtni)
  • Try out Mormonism (Sarah)
  • Fast on sugar (Holly)
  • Go organic, food wise (Matilda)
  • Read: The book thief (Julia)
  • Watch the TV show: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Tina)

073 Write self a letter to be opened on day 1001

I’m going to start on the letter this week.

081    Get a new hairstyle (or haircut) every six months [1/3.5]

I got my hair cut into a new style last month thanks to an early Christmas present. I LOVE IT! Now I can work on goal #080

083    Manicure tootsies monthly [4/21]

December done 🙂

045 Work up to 200 sit-ups and 100 push-ups daily

I’d like this to be apart of my January’s goals to start.

046 Work up to 200 squats daily (get all three apps on iPhone)

I’d like this to be apart of my January’s goals to start too.

067    Maintain a 3.5 GPA each quarter (change if I feel I can maintain higher) [1/6]

My Fall quarter I received two A’s and a B, I think that’s at least a 3.5?

021    Take a Photography course (other than the one I’m taking in school)

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to add another course outside of the one I’m taking for school (starting Tuesday!!), but I’m thinking maybe a course of some tips through a photographer I admire.

020    Become active on my Flickr account

I think that now that I’ll be in a photography course it will be easier to start and finish these goals

005    Cook 5 recipes from all my cookbooks

I have been cooking and baking up a storm of NEW recipes now that I’m not working and my little man is home. BUT this goal is for recipes in my cookbooks. I received 2 new cookbooks for Christmas along with my Julie & Julia movie. The Julia Child Art of French Cooking Vol I & II. I also grabbed a Rachael Ray cookbook from my storage unit last time I was there. I have more, but since I have very little space here I think I’ll swap out as needed.

048    Visit Michelle at least once per year (budget with tax return to ensure this?) [0/2.75]

Let’s see how my tax return turns out, but I plan on getting a ticket it with it regardless. Also she came and visited for Christmas and it was awesome!! Our kids are getting married soon by the way…

Look she already has a veil on!!

054    Send Christmas cards (possibly homemade) to family and friends yearly [1/2.75]

I totally did this and my wrist still hurts!

047    Mail [Private] a postcard monthly [4/21]

Done for December.

039    Compile address book in excel and email to self so it’s readily available

I compiled this for my Christmas cards, so two birds with one stone – wooo!

055    Update 101 blog weekly [11/143]

I’m trying to make up for this right now, is it working??? Yeah didn’t think so. FAIL.

064    Finish homework the week it’s due

I start Winter quarter on Tuesday so here we go again. Wheeeeeeeeee!

068    Wash linens monthly [4/21]

I washed all my clothes yesterday, but since this reminded me I needed to do Decembers I’ll throw them in right now!

This week was a good week goal wise. I get to cross two goals off, check out how:

016 Purchase an acoustic guitar

There is so many good sales this holiday season! I found one at Target for $75 last week and was <—-this close—-> to buying it, but my finances put me back in check. Boo!

025 Recommend to me month

I have yet to receive one recommendation… Grr! Guess I will have to ask a little louder this time?

I have 101 goals to complete in 1001 days. #025 is Recommend to me month. I am officially invoking this goal. So for anyone reading this, please oh please, recommend something to me. Anything. A book, movie, recipe, lifestyle change, seriously anything. Ready go!

035    Clean out wardrobe and donate no longer needed items

I finally cleaned/reorganized my room this past week and made it a tad more… okay a lot more livable. In the process I started a donation pile that ended up in my roommates hands instead. Heh. Oh well, I’m rid of them and that’s what counts!

088 Hang pictures

Since my room is clean and organized I feel much more willing to hang the few pictures I have in frames. The next task at hand is fishing them out of storage.

081    Get a new hairstyle (or haircut) every six months [0/3.5]

I’ve been urged by a certain someone to place this goal on hold until after Christmas…….

082 Take multi-vitamin daily

I have been taking my multi vitamin daily since the day I started on these goals back in September. Of course there has a been a day here or day there I’ve missed but I would say 99.6% of the time I take them each and every day. With that said I am crossing this off, however if I catch myself slipping I’ll activate it again.

054    Send Christmas cards (possibly homemade) to family and friends yearly [0/2.75]

I found some festive and nice looking Christmas cards in the ‘Dollar Spot’ at Target. I ended up with 16 cards for $2 and I can still spruce them up a bit before sending them out early next month. Yay!

064    Finish homework the week it’s due

  • [Fall 09] [Winter 09] [Spring 09]
  • [Fall 10] [Winter 10] [Spring 10]

I altered the appearance of this goal to reflect the different quarters in school to keep track. I know, I know, Fall quarter isn’t quite over yet however I don’t have any more homework due only my finals.

068    Wash linens monthly [3/21]

I haven’t been home in about three weeks so I feel okay this is a slackin’ a bit. I will be home this weekend and will do Novemebers linen duty. Promise.

025 Recommend to me month

I am officially invoking this goal. So for anyone reading this, please oh please, recommend something to me. Anything. A book, movie, recipe, lifestyle change, seriously anything.

077 Create a memory box

I have the perfect box for this I just need to find things to put in it.

084 Buy a new laptop with external hard drive

I finally got my financial aid so I bought a 500 GB external drive yesterday from Costco. So now half of this goal is done. Woot! It’s sexy too and matches my laptop.

Seeee, fancy eh?

041    Get Invisaline

This week I cracked down and got a mouth guard for my teeth clenching flaw. My jaw has been killing me for weeks now and I’m hoping this solves it. Night guard down, next up Invisiline 🙂

081    Get a new hairstyle (or haircut) every six months [0/3.5]

I need to get my hair cut so bad! I look like a 60s hippy and none of my layers are even noticeable anymore! 😦

038    Budget monthly (keep register daily, pay bills weekly or with paychecks) [3/21]

December budget is in place and ready to go!

067    Maintain a 3.5 GPA each quarter (change if I feel I can maintain higher) [0/6]

I’ve dropped down to a B+ in one of my classes which sucks, but it is a second year class so I’m cutting my self some slack. However, I am still on pace for this goal.

063    Host a dinner party

I’m cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my family this year (at my grandmas house) doesn’t that count?? No? Damn.

054    Send Christmas cards (possibly homemade) to family and friends yearly [0/2.75]

I saw these on sale for 50% off already, but they were a little cheesy so I passed on them.

047    Mail [Private] a postcard monthly [3/21]

Sent November’s out last week so I’m back on track for this goal. I slacked and was sending them at the end of the month instead of the beginning.

101    Plant a tree

I know it sounds silly but I’ve been saving my apple seeds and plan to plant them. This may count if I can keep it alive.

001    Produce a successful blog

I started a new blog last week and it’s a cooking blog so eloquently named How do I boil water?. If you need some Thanksgiving advice head over there and check out my last entry.

I’ve decided I needed to see something new for this blog. What can I say I get bored easy….? I hope you enjoy it! Thoughts?

P.S. I’m going to start on a new blog, I’ll post it here as soon as it’s launched.
