I talked a lot about this a long time ago, but I haven’t been keeping on top of it. I came up with a list of 100 things I want to do before I die. Some of them are serious, some are fun, some are random. I haven’t looked at the list in a while so I thought in the spirit of the new year I would check in on my progress. I have completed 16 of my 100 things and I have two that are currently in progress. Here are the ones I haven’t updated about.
#8: Meet a Boy
This is really not news to those of you who read my blog (all 4 of you. I don’t claim to have a huge fanbase by any means. haha). I have been hanging out with a guy almost every weekend since April. Things are still going well, I still REALLY like him, but things are going slow. This is not a bad thing, it’s just nice to have a guy to talk to and to get this new type of attention that I haven’t had much of before. I’m sure there will be more to talk about at a later time.
#84: Find Animaniacs on DVD
Merry Christmas to me! My mom found Animaniacs on DVD and gave it to me on Christmas. I have been looking around for months and months and I have to say I am really excited! (also, I am a HUGE dork! But again, this is not news to those of you who know me. haha)
#10: Compile all of the 100 greatest songs of the 90’s according to VH1–In Progress
I started compiling this list of songs a while ago now, and I don’t know if it’s impressive or sad that I had so many of these 90’s songs without even trying. haha. After a couple of years, and many itunes gift cards, I currently have 75/100 of VH1’s 100 greatest songs of the 90’s, and I have to say that I am feeling pretty confident that I can get the rest of them this year.
#38: Learn to stay busy. When I am bored DO SOMETHING!–In Progress
This is an interesting one. I have been doing this thing lately where I get stir crazy and physically antsy almost every evening around 8/8:30 and feel like I need to get out of the house. I have been a lot better at finding things to do. I have been watching a ton of movies, listening to some new (to me) music, and otherwise doing what I consider a pretty good job of occupying myself when I start to get bored. I say this one is in progress because I still get those antsy feelings, it usually takes me a while to decide what I am going to do to entertain my brain, and there is still a lot on my brain to entertain. In all seriousness though, I am getting much better at staying busy and hoping that the coming months (with apartment searching, room de-cluttering, and overall getting organized) will help with some of this. Mission almost accomplished.
So there you have it. I would like to say that I have accomplished more than 16/100 things, but at least I am still making progress. Of course I keep thinking of different things I want to add to the list, so why stop at 100…Interesting food for thought. I may have to continue editing and adding to this list, There are so many things that I would like to do as I get older…Anyway, thank you for listening (or reading as the case may be). I’ll have another post soon.
