In my quest to live more intentionally, I started a 101 in 1001 list over at the Day Zero project last month or thereabouts.
Some of them, like going on a cruise, were relegated to the “someday list”. Surprisingly, though, I’ve already ticked off a few things on the 1001 challenge!
I have 28 items so far:
Read everything on my book list
Relearn Fade to Black and Astronomy on guitar (not that my original standard of play was very high….)
Visit a Pacific Island
Snorkel to the other side of the channel at Goat Island
Go to a concert
Participate in NaBloPoMo
Renew my passport
Start a herb garden
Make a Kiva loan
Celebrate anniversary in style
Cook for my parents
Get a facial/and a back massage for T
Start a regular blog feature (kinda? Do link roundups count?)
Start tracking net worth
Learn to check car fluids
Learn to park
Be able to drive manual on my own
Attend a film festival
Go to a farmer’s market
Bake a carrot cake
Go on the Waipa Delta steam boat for a meal
Go rock climbing
Buy an Entertainment Book
And this month, I was given tickets to the Film Festival for my birthday! We went to Wah Do Dem, an indie tale about a broken-hearted boy who goes cruising alone, disembarks in Jamaica, gets literally everything but the shorts on his ass stolen, and proceeds to try to make his way home again. Highlights: Zoolander style photos snapped in his white suit, dancing to MGMT, grinding in a Jamaican club, and an attempted mugging.
I’m also set to go to two concerts in October (I believe in the same week!) – Paramore and Metallica. I can’t wait!
