I've been toying with the idea of doing that for a few months now. However, I can't come up with 101 goals, and 1,001 days is a *long* time, I knwo myself. I'd give up partway through, and be all disappointed in myself. So I decided to modify it by cutting it in half!

I am, starting on August 19th, starting a '50 Goals in 500 days' project! If I start on that date, it will end on 01/01/11, so that was the date I decided on; it'll be easy to remember that way!

So, here's my list, lol:







1 Get a physical
2 Eat 2 real meals a day, instead of 90% junk.
3 Reduce the amount of soda I drink to 3 cups a day.
4 Pay off my credit card
5 Have $1,000.00 in savings, or at least, only remove money from savings to do things on this list.
6 Have my car in running condition, and be driving it.
7 Take a road trip!
8 Accept help from others without feeling guilty for it.
9 Accept compliments without thinking the person is just joking.
10 Organize personal papers: bills, taxes, insurance forms, etc.
11 Do more physical activity; biking, walking, jogging, DDR...
12 Participate in a walk, jog, or run-a-thon
13 travel outside of central California for a concert
14 Get to know my online friends better
15 Initiate contact with others; call/text instead of waiting for them to call/text me all the time.
16 Read 1 book/ebook a month, by someone *other* then my favorite authors.
17 Go to a dentist and see if anything can be done about my teeth.
18 Sleep 8 hours a night.
19 have 'me and mom' time every week, and once a month, something special.
20 Finish sewing the cloaks I started a few years ago.
21 Spend 2 hours a week playing my guitar.
22 learn 1 new song each month on my guitar
23 Own a Greek purple haired Bluebelle and Greek white Skydancer.
24 Reduce collection; get rid of ones I don't really want.
25 Get the 'Why SO SRS, Bandom?' customs completed.
26 Customize one mlp myself, complete with rehairing it.
27 Widen my music collection to include more non-bandom
28 Create home made gifts for Christmas.
29 Work on photography skills, to where I can expect decent photos from a show and can take decent ones of my mlps for sale.
30 Get the cats fixed: staring with Damia, Cat C, and Lunar
31 Listen to my LP's
32 Get more LP's
33 Get clothing from the lines I drool at.
34 Create a shirt for myself
35 Learn Excel
36 Learn html
37 Learn more about my 401(k) instead of just shoving money into it.
38 Train the animals with some basics.
39 Make my bed when I get up every day.
40 Attend a non-MLP event/convention I want to go to, instead of only daydreaming about going.
41 Stop taking such horrible care of my personal belongings; put things up!
42 Do something considered exercise every day, not including walking at work.
43 Get my tattoo, finally. I've only been working on the design for 10 years or so...
44 Draw or sketch something every day, *other* then my design.
45 Get rid of unwanted/stained/doesn't fit clothing
46 Spend less time 'just killing time' on my comp.
47 Post online more often, and once a week, do a sketch/photo post
48 Watch at least one new(to me) movie each month
49 Get an ebook reader of some kind.
50 Have 2 ponymeets.(maybe fall ones? Halloween?)

it's a real mix of health, personal, and other goals, and I'll be happy if I can look back and say I made a dent in it, yet, if I work hard at it, I should be able to accomplish the whole thing, so, we'll see!



I have it saved in Googledocs, but I want to put it here, too; if I put it in enough places, I will remember to stick to it, right? I hope?

In other news, I am trying to be good and not spoil anything about Hot Mess, because since I preordered it, I got it yesterday, so I'm being even quieter then normal on twitter, lol.

In other kinds of news, I am making curtains for the kitchen and back bedroom! For the kitchen, it's pretty gold fabric with paler striped sections that have dark grey pinstripes, and occasional roses...not really my style, lol, but it goes with the wallpaper and yellow painted cabinets nicely, and is better then mis-matched ones(currently, one with tiny, multicolored teacups, and one with blue roses...yeah)

for the back bedroom, a slightly darker gold with a pretty vine and leaf pattern, over stripes and rectangles...it's hard to describe! Again, not quite my style, but the ones I had made(mint green and black panels, mint/black/mint, in each window) shrank too much to use, lol: they are now about 2 inches too short and an inch or two too narrow, since they got dried in the dryer which is a very *good* dryer and gets *very* hot!

In pony news, I have a *very gorgeous Mexican Bluebelle on it's way, and I think I found someone to do the Warning Mark custom; she can take a vague idea and come up with some really interesting ponies, so I'll be curious to see what I end up with, lol! I still have yet to receive the Car Crash Hearts one, the customiser had some rl issues interfere, and then she couldn't get the neck brace to cooperate!

:D thank you! the curtains are awesome...except for the part where I made one set about 3 inches too short, lol! /o\ oh well, I used cheap fabric, the $1.50 kind from walmart, so I'll buy some more & redo that one!

for the list, I basically just sat down and started thinking: What are things I have always *said* I'm going to do, but never have(like the tattoo)? and what are things I've been neglecting for no real reason(like having my teeth looked at)? and also what are some things I've never really planned on doing that I would LOVE to do(road trip!) and what are things I wish I could change about myself(like the accepting help thing.)?

lol, we'll see how many I actually accomplish, but goals are called goals for a reason: if we were sure we could reach them all, then they'd just be items to check off, lol.

Wow, good luck with that! I can't even accomplish a 3-5 piece list. xD

heh, I am *horrible* about following through on plans, you have no idea, seriously! I am hoping a long term list like this will help me be more organized. I have so little willpower...
