one brave soul

so i’ve had one brave soul speak up and offer to help me with goal #100… now i just need to find four more brave souls.

can i inspire you to make a 101 in 1001 list of your own? any takers????

my dear friend suburban sweetheart decided to make a 101 in 1001 list because of my list (and others, but she told me i could take credit for it). she’s the best. you should take the plunge too!

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!
