101 in 1001: Checking In

I am working on completing a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days.  I have 941 days remaining.   It has been a few weeks since I have updated my list so I decided that a blog entry would be a good way to keep myself accountable and good motivation to keep working.  So without further ado... the updates and changes to the list: (Something is up with blogger spacing today so its very strangely spaced, my apologies)   

 In Progress     Completed

5. Have a ladies night 4x/year.  1/12 Two good friends and I got together for dinner and drinks.  It was great to catch up and spend some quality time together :)
10. Make a list of 101 things that make me happy. 40/101 If you are following along you know that I have 40 of my 101 things listed.  Find the full list here.
16. Wash makeup off every night, consecutively, for 2 weeks.  I am in the process of this one.  I think I am on 3 days in a row.  I really dislike washing my face at night so this is exciting for me.
21. Complete a spiritual strength quiz.  Completed: check.  Out of prophet, lover, mystic and sage.  I am a sage.  Pretty cool stuff.  Find the quiz here.
37. Try 6 new restaurants a year.  3/18  In addition to checking out Fuddrucker's I have also now been to Milano's and Carbone's in the Twin Cities.
40. Build savings account.  Now that I am subbing I am making money and am adding as much as I can spare to my savings account.
48. Get a full-time job.  Well, I am trying.  I have filled out over 35 applications in 16 different states.  I am beginning to get discouraged, but I have hope that someday soon I will get a call for an interview and then a job. Then I will have my own classroom!
53Organize job applications and materials.  It feels so good to have these organized.
62. Visit 10 tourist/popular spots in the Twin Cities.  1/10 I have now been to Lake Nokomis.  Woo Hoo!
68. Read 50 new books per year.  23/50 in 2010 (as of 4/29/2010)  I am up to 23 books.  Although I think there have been more and I just can't remember.
74. Watch 26 movies I've never seen starting with each letter of the alphabet.  Australia and Four Christmases can now be added to the list.
75. Find a new musical artist every month.  The Band Perry (4/2010) can be added to the list.
82. Comment on 10 different blogs.   I have loved visiting many different blogs and being able to leave comments for the authors!
93. Blog at least twice a week.  So far, so good.

It feels good to be making progress.  I like crossing things off and seeing things being done.  I feel more productive.  And its a good reminder for me to do more than I normally would.  It pushes me towards the edge of my bubble.  If you are working on the 101 in 1001 Challenge, or another list of some sort please leave a link in the comments below.  I would love to check it out.  Have a wonderful day!  Remember to live your life the best you can.  Love as much as you can.  Little things can wait, the sunset won't.
