101 Things Final Update

Technically, my 101 Things to do in 1001 Days isn't actually done until September 28. However, I've been going over the list and I know there isn't anything on it that I'm going to finish in the next ten days. This time around, I really felt like I had accomplished a lot...but I just counted what I'd completed, and it doesn't even appear to be half. I've been doing 101 Things for ... since it was created, I think. It grew from a blog post in 2003, which means I've done five lists so far. And now I'm going to start on my sixth.

So far, every time I've done this, I've never been able to finish more than 49 items. It kind of bums me out that I keep making these lists and keep failing pretty massively. Certainly, my completion rate, were it a test, would not warrant a passing grade. The thing is, I LOVE this list, and I constantly put travel goals on it that I can never fucking afford to do. So, I'm just going to keep doing what I do...roll over some items from this list to the next, add more, and keep writing about it in my blog!!!

This is the final update of my most recent list, and I'll be posting my next list sometime this week. Also, if you're interested, you can learn more about it here...that's also a site that is a social networking thing for the list, if you want that action. If you DO try this out, then please let me know! I'd love to read other lists!
