100 Day Update

101 Things in 1001 Days

Wow, I can't believe it has been 100 days since I posted my list. It's been fun working towards a new set of goals everyday. I don't think I was fully prepared for life after college...thinking about it though, I am not really sure anyone is. I grew up knowing that I was going to go to college, graduate, get married and have kids. I don't think I anticipated that the graduation to marriage thing potentially would have a larger gap than I expected, which I am okay with, I just didn't come up with an "in-between" plan. I like plans. Plans and lists. Lists and plans. Sometimes spontaneity.  

I think this list is a great way for me to focus on personal things that I want to accomplish in the next couple of years. I feel like I have made a lot of progress in the first portion of this challenge to myself. Some are still a work in progress, and some I haven't even touched (which are the same ones that have been on random to-do lists for years...who really wants to organize their iTunes?)

Even though I have checked a lot off of my list, I haven't been able to fully cross them off because I haven't written a post about them. The couch post took me awhile of gathering old pictures, so hopefully the upcoming posts will be published faster.

101 Things in 1001 Days

This is where I am at so far:

75. Buy a new couch
28. Stay in a bed and breakfast
49. "Spring clean" to closet and dressers
86. Take a digital photography class
18. See Bay Lights
42. Hike once a week for two months
83. Get a haircut
61. Frame and hang diploma

In progress:
 - I have printed and hung my list on my door so I can always see it and be inspired.
- I have come up with a fitness calendar to schedule out physical therapy (#39), walks (#40), and the gym (#41). After that, I will move on to training for a 5K. Did I mention I hate running?
- I have taken the spring photo for the seasons photos frame (#36). This task might harder to accomplish (or see any change) since we don't really have seasons in California.
- I began taking a photo at the same place every month, but I need to choose a location a little closer. Getting across the Golden Gate Bridge every month isn't that feasible (#35).
- I took a self portrait everyday for about a month or more (#88). I am going to figure out how to modify this goal, maybe a picture once a month or once a week. Because right now, I can just tell that I look tired without makeup and my hair done and brighter with makeup on and no frizzy hair.
- I am getting more and more frustrated with my student loans and am doing everything I can to get those paid off (#90).
- I bought a sketchbook and have begun drawing. Apparently I am better at drawing cats than flowers at this point (#67).
- We bought tickets to a Giants vs. Padres game in September with our friends from San Diego (#19)

Additional Accomplishments:
102. Was in a photography show
103. Learned how to play bocce ball

Here's to the next 100 days! Cheers!
