time for an update!

January 6, 2010 in 101 in 1001,about me

Let’s talk about goals. It’s that time of year where most people are setting goals and making resolutions. My goals started early this year… July 13th 2009 to be exact.

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve updated my 101 in 1001 list {to see first posting on July 13th, go here}. So I thought I’d make sure you’re holding me accountable update you on my progress!

{Note: to shorten this post, I haven’t posted the whole list.}

Start date: Monday, July 13th, 2009
End date: April 19th, 2012

Completed
In Progress
Not Yet Completed.

Travel:
16. Go to a Buffalo bills game. {Went to the October 11th 2009 game}

Personal/Social:
32. Watch the sunset. {BF and I watched the sunset at the wedding on 8/15/09}
34. Go an entire year without swearing. {Began again today. Obviously this is a struggle}
36. Send at least one hand-written note/card each month. {6/33}
43. Waste less by using only canvas bags for shopping during this entire 1001 days. {This isn’t working out how I expcted…}
45. Register a domain name. {itsahero.com Yay!}
46. Donate blood. {donated blood in December 2009}
48. Purchase an apron. {See my pretty little apron here.}
52. Become an official resident of NY state. {Completed as of 9/30/09!!}
53. Meet a blog friend in real life. {I met Sara from Stumbling in Stilettos!}
54. Reorganize my photos (both digital and prints). {This seems to be a very long process}
63. Join a book club. {I joined my book club in December of 2009 & our first meeting is January 2010, thanks to cancellation due to snow in December}

Financial:
65. Buy a new car. {New to me! Purchased 8/4/09}
66. Pay off my credit cards. {well on my way! & I’m so proud/excited about this!}
68. Sell unused electronics on Craigslist or Ebay. {I sold two items! I think this will remain in progress for a while.}

Work/Education:
73. Find a new job. {I started at my new job on 8/10/2009! Yay!}
80. Read at least 25 new books. {2/25: Sloane Crosley, “I Was Told There’d Be Cake”; & Audrey Niffenegger, “Her Fearful Symmetry”}

Health/Wellness:
97. Take a spinning class. {signed up for a class this Friday, January 8, 2010}

So that’s 18 of 101. I suppose I need to step it up a bit!

I guess my New Years Resolution will be to chip away at the list!

How was Her Fearful Symmetry? I'm trying to decide if I want to buy it or not. I did love Time Traveler's Wife.

I also really want an apron, I think it might be time to find a cute one.

Awesome job, girlie!

And I am so glad you posted this — I've been meaning to update my list for a long time now. You've inspired me to get off my [virtual] butt and do it! 🙂

Love the apron; let me guess, you love cupcakes! 🙂 I'm slightly obsessed with them as well, and think the apron is adorable; where did you purchase it?

Oh, and how did the spin class go? I'm attending my first one next Tuesday, and I'm a bit terrified…
