slow going

minor changes on the list to update you about:

#28- local businesses i try to support with my business…can you believe i haven’t updated this since november? well, there are a lot of obvious and boring ones… my credit union, my nail lady, my gas station, the two sushi places i usually visit and my dentist. i also have gotten an oil change, went to a local school for a clinic massage and threw my sister a baby shower at the local country club.

#66- i’m almost done my grace in small things challenge, which seems crazy to me. i’m on day 333 of 365! wow. check it out on my other blog.

#69- i finally got around to writing a couple handwritten letters to my friends. i need to write 100 before the end of this challenge… i’ve done four!! one to my friend lauren and the other to my friend sarah. i have two to mail out to my pen pals- kate and erin- today or tomorrow. so i’m just going to count them here. do you want to be my pen pal? find out how.

#70- i own 225 books i’v never read. when i started this project, i read three. off the top of my head i’ve read another three: operating instructions by anne lamott, the MFA handbook by tom kealey and eat, pray, love by elizabeth gilbert. i’m sure i’ve read much more but i guess i’ll just have to update this later.

#75- apply to grad school. well, i’ve fully applied to three schools. I’m probably going to be fully applied to another three tonight, and within the next week, i will be completely done this goal…. AND I CANNOT WAIT!

#88- still paying off credit cards and doing a great job, but the grad school apps have put a definite dent in the payment plan. can you guess how expensive it is to apply to 14 schools?

#90- i’ve been updating my credit card and bank info into the spreadsheet i have.

#91- still working on paying off my car. well, my credit union is at least. they automatically take money out of my account once a month.

#100- i’m supposed to get 5 people to start their own 101 list…. do any of you want to be inspired by me??? i don’t have anyone who started their list because of mine yet!

  1. In fact, you inspired ME to start a list! I wanted to see what your grace thing was about, & then realized a lot of blogs I follow are doing 101 in 1001, including Was It for This, the first DC blogger I befriended. I started my list last night, and I only have 84 things so far, but I don’t want to rush thinking of 100 because I think if I’m committing myself to 2.75 years, the last 16 should be things I really want to do!

    But… one down, four to go. 🙂
