#10 - Read 100 new books
DONE!! I finished this the other day. There's a full list over on my 101 in 1001 page, and there are reviews of each book over on my Goodreads page. Some of them were amazing, some of them were epic pieces of shit. And I discovered a whole bunch of awesome authors to look out for, which is always good.
#19 - Reach 500 blog posts
In progress. This post makes 453, so I'm pretty sure I'll have this crossed off before the end of the year!
#30 - Take a cooking class
DONE! I didn't realise it until I looked at the list again to write this post, but the macaron class that Deidre and I took for Super Sized Dessert Day has taken care of this one nicely.
#31 - Host a guest blogger
DONE! Another one I'd forgotten that I put on the list. Thanks to Teacher Girl and the 20SB blog swap, I crossed this off last week!
#54 - Print out my photos
I guess this one is almost always going to be a work in progress. But I HAVE printed out a ton of photos from 2008 through to the end of my trip to America last year, along with labelling them and putting them into albums. For the moment, I'm not crossing this off, because I'm not COMPLETELY up to date with printing my photos. But maybe when I get back from America NEXT year, I'll cross this one off.
#56 - Buy a new laptop
DONE! Okay, so technically I didn't buy it. My dad bought it for me, because a) my old laptop completely shat itself over the semester break ('multiple blue screens of death' kind of shat itself. I think the hard drive died...), b) I needed a new one for uni, because we're in a shiny new "no computers provided" building, and my old one weighs about 4 kilos, and c) I have no money. But I have a new laptop, so it totally counts, right???
#59 - Follow a new blog every month
I've probably exceeded this one in almost every month. The only problem is that I reached a point where I forgot to write them down, so I'm not ENTIRELY sure of the order I followed various blogs in. Whoops? Anyway, it's still plodding along merrily.
#60 - Take a self portrait every month
Dudes. This one is an EPIC failure. I took one the first month, and THAT WAS IT. I'm definitely going to be donating $10 to charity for this one...
#65 - Keep a plant alive for a year
Nearly two months in, the plant is still alive. EXCELLENT PROGRESS, ME!
#96 - Save all coins smaller than 50c and go shopping at the end
Yeah, I've been saving all 5c, 10c and 20c pieces religiously. But I'm not sure how well that shopping spree is going to go. I currently have $14.................
#100 - Seriously consider doing my PhD
DONE. I can honestly say that I've seriously considered this, and now that I'm arse deep in a Masters degree and racking up another $30,000 in debt to the government (thankfully, it's interest free and I pay it back through my tax!), I definitely won't be doing my PhD any time soon. I'd still like to do it one day. But maybe when I've retired. Then I can do it on something I find interesting, rather than something I think will stand a chance of getting me a job!
So there you have it. There's a lot of stuff that still needs to be started, and a stack of stuff that needs to be finished. But I think it's going pretty well so far!
