Life list

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
Save $10,000
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
Blog meetup
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
Go skiing
Donate blood
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!

    Ohhh it’s about time you made plans to attend a concert! If you hadn’t said that, I was going to say, judging by that list, it’s about the easiest thing to do.

    And oh btw, if you want to get an Entertainment book, you should get it ASAP because they expire in June next year, so right now is the perfect time to get one.

      I know, I was just browing through the deals today and thinking what a great time to buy! But now isn’t really the best time with only one income and not much disposable income. I do have quite a few new eateries I’ve heard about recently that I’m keen to try, but none are in the book.
