Yet Another 101 Things To Do in the Next 1001 Days

So it’s been 6 days since my last 1001 days list ended and apparently I just can’t live with a long list of goals, because here I am with my next list! This time I decided to use Google spreadsheets because that will be much easier than the HTML’d list that I’ve used in my previous 101 lists. Some of the items are things that I didn’t accomplish in my last 101 list that I still want to do 1. Some are things I blatantly stole from Dr. Dan’s Not-So-Bucket List. And several are things that are top of mind because I’ve spent the last little while unpacking and organizing my new condo and I have a bunch of stuff that I want to do/buy to get this place set up just the way I want it, so why not put them on the list?

I’ve also decided to start the 1001 days as of Saturday, as I’ve been building the list since even before I finished the previous 1001 days but I didn’t get around to publishing it until tonight (in fact, I thought I *did* publish yesterday, but I’ve just discovered that I neglected to actually click the “publish” button!). And maybe, just maybe, because I accomplished some of the stuff that’s on the list either yesterday or Saturday and I want to be able to check things off the list to start the ball rolling. So, for the record:

Start date: Saturday, July 12, 2014

End date: Sunday, April 9, 2017

Wish me luck!

  1. And some I think were on my *original* 101 list and if I seriously can’t accomplish them in 3003 days, then what is wrong with me?? []

    Number 99 FTW!

    I think you should actually tighten this to: “avoid starting any degree-granting programs” for extra caution.

    I can’t believe you’ve never read “Lord of the Flies!” All of these seem very doable, and as usual, you inspire me. I think I’ll actually do a 1001 things, focusing on travel in my area because, 1) Wes is probably going to retire from the Navy within the next 4 years and we will move, and 2) I’m homeschooling the Navy Bean, so we’ll have plenty of time to travel and see stuff (we’re doing a classical education, so I’m so excited because I’m going to learn so much!). Good luck!

    Ahhh! #33 is in the bag. You *must* see salmon spawn. And I have a proposition for you. It’s a big Adam River sockeye salmon spawning year this year. There will millions of sockeye salmon spawning on an 11 km stretch of river just east of Kamloops during the first 3 weeks of October. It is simply spectacular. You are officially invited to stay at our cabin one of those weekends and I’ll take you on a guided tour of awesome. Let’s tentatively book Oct 18/19 weekend. Put me in your calendar.

    I also can’t believe you haven’t read Lord of the Flies. But then I guess I never read the Margaret Atwood high school classic The Handmaid’s Tale.

    Also, for #10, I think you mean “camel”

    @Stacey – I’d love to see your list when it’s done!

    @Erika – That would be amazing!! It’s in my calendar! w00t!

    @Kalev – I’m shocked you haven’t read The Handmaid’s Tale. You’re a Canadian and a feminist – how is that possible? (And, yes, I did mean “camel”. Stupid Google spreadsheet and its lack of spell check!)
