400 Day Update

Hello Day 400! Well, I missed the 200 and 300 day update and all of my progress posts in between...Let’s see if I can do better in the next 100 days.

I sit on my porch (#74 is still far from being accomplished) trying to figure out where to start. We had a whirlwind of a summer with almost every weekend booked going on various trips or having friends and family visit. I am not really sure where the time went. I am still convinced that July did not happen. I mean I seriously do not know where the time went. But none the less, 2014 has come and gone and we are fully into 2015. I might still have trouble believing it is already the end of March. I have been so consumed in my job that the weekend rolls around and I just collapse. What once was an adventure almost every weekend is now a Netflix or DVR marathon. 

Let’s see what I have accomplished since my last post, to make me feel a little better…

25. Go to Yosemite
30. Go Wakeboarding and actually get up
92. Open an investment account
19. Go to a Giants game
90. Pay off one student loan
84. Buy everyday earrings that don't turn my ears green
77. Buy a new dining table
20. Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge (again)

16 down...85 to go (I basically need to complete 1 task a week for the rest of the challenge)

In progress:
-I have taken all of the photos for #36 and just need to frame them together
-The self portrait goal (#88) was not a fully thought out goal. I need to use a tripod for that and it takes up so much room in our tiny apartment. It also makes for a really awkward story when people come over...I think this one is going to be unaccomplished (but can I just replace it with one of my additional accomplishments?? Yes. Okay, thanks.)
-Even though I created the goal to pay off one student loan (#90), I have been motivated to pay off my other one and will be making my last student loan payment next month.
-I finally picked up my Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy again and hope that I can finish just 1 novel in the near future! (#82)
-I started my 1000 piece puzzle (#81)! Man, I picked a challenging one. I think 60% of the pieces are in...but I have the hardest parts left...

Next ones to tackle in the next 100 days:
-Watercolor (#68)
-Paint a canvas (#69)
-Bake bread from scratch (#6)…I really miss baking and need to start doing it more. It was therapeutic and relaxing for me. 
-Take a ferry to Angel Island (#21)
-Join a local library (#58)
-Make use of our patio (#74)
-Make a habit to eat dinner at the dining room table instead of in front of the TV (#78)

I want to continue to work towards:
-Filling a sketchbook (#67)
-Learning conversational Spanish (#65)
-Reading 5 novels (#82)
-A better and more consistent fitness routine (#39, #40, #41)

Additional accomplishments:
104. Entered a photo in a county fair (and won!)

  1. If you have a stand mixer, make some focaccia bread! Super easy, you mostly just have to sit around and wait for it to rise (good time to drink some wine) :)
