Month One

Posted on

What an eventful and productive month (and a bit).

I’m a bit worried I won’t get all the reading done on the Steinbeck list. However, I have made good progress with Gone with the Wind and am in the 500s (out of 888 pages).

I have watched Grizzly Man off he documentary  list.

I also am organising a Halloween themed book club. This is a big deal for me as I will be having people at our house, and this is something I resist doing.

I went bowling  and got a strike on the second bowl. However, I think I will aim to get a strike on the first bowl still, so am not crossing that one off the list yet.

I’m in the process of exercising everyday. I am walking at this stage due to health issues I can’t do much more.

I subscribed to 2 daily word site and have already learned a few new words.

This seems like a good progress for me at this point because I am a busy mum with 3 kids who have been sick over the last month on and off.

I will be following this post up with a few reviews of some of the documentaries I have read and other list related stuff shortly.


The list is up (finally)

I have finally whittled down my list. It took some time because I have recently been sick, but also I wanted to make sure there were a good variety of things on the list. The whole point of this exercise is to challenge myself and to find out what I really enjoy doing and where I think I might be headed in the future. I need to start making plans about what to do and this was the best way I could think of to do it.


I have decided to give myself the deadline of 1st July as I completed the list around that time this year. I know I turn 31 in March 2012 but this idea didn’t occur to me on time.


So I guess the journey really begins now…

So list writing is harder than I thought…

I’m currently in the process of compiling the 30 things list. I wrote about 10 things down without too many issues but really struggled to think of 30. So, I decided to look at things to do before you die lists online.That must have helped because now I have a list with nearly 100 things on it.

My plan is to have the list down to 30 things and to post it some time this weekend.

For now I am continuing to read Gone With the Wind  and try to get my hands on a few of the documentaries from the list and some Steinbeck books from Ebay. For me that’s enough at this moment.
