101 in 1001 Update

So a quick update on the items I’ve worked on since identifying what I can do last week: 54. learn to crochet As it turns out, I had already purchased a crochet hook and I had some balls of wool as well, which is always a useful thing when learning to crochet. I found some […]

101 in 1001

So the following is the result of a recent brainstorm I had wanting to move forward with my 101 in 1001 list, with the result being a random 8 items I can move forward on. Coming up with a concrete identifier of what constitutes a WIN is really hard work and even now I’m not […]

Fly a Kite – 101 in 1001 Update

20. fly a kite Today, we headed down to the park today with two kites. One is a very cheap kite reminiscent of the one I remember from when I flew my first kite (and wound up chasing after in an overgrown field) and required a little tweaking before it would fly and a inexpensive […]

101 in 1001

Without further ado (considering this is already 5 days late :P) I present my third and final attempt at … 101 in 1001 The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or […]

101 in 1001

Okay the plan is to restart the 101 in 1001 list on Thursday, so I’ve been working on a revamp of the list. Sadly, this has ended up in more items being removed than added – it would be nice to have an abundance of tasks to pick and choose from. So here is the […]

101 in 1001 Update

It’s time I had a rethink about my 101 in 1001 list. It’s due to end in just over a year and I’m not confident that I a) could complete all the tasks on it and b) that I want to complete all of them. That being said, I do have an update to make […]

26 Things

It’s a good thing I decided to redo the 101 in 1001 else I wouldn’t have discovered there’s a 26 Things project happening this month. It’s a basic premise – given a list of 26 words/phrases take a photo that illustrates that word. The list is: neighbour unfamiliar mess information change everything company twin warning […]

101 in 1001 Reprisal

As mentioned earlier, I’m redoing 101 in 1001 starting today. This time round I’ve made the tasks less rigid so in the event of total craziness they’re still accomplishable and I’ve also added in the dreaded “fill this in later” tasks as I now understand how useful they can be. Imagine waiting almost 3 years […]

Welcome 2009!

Hi everyone I’ve been avoiding posting anything recently as I wanted to make today special since it’s the first day of the calendar year and a wonderful time to start afresh. Over the past few weeks I’ve been slowly mapping out my goals for 2009 and I decided to restart my 101 in 1001 as […]

Dawning of a New Month

Hi there, November brings in the beginning of the 10th NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) which is an event celebrated by the feverish pounding of keys around the world. From a naming perspective, the opposite of the World Series I guess. Don’t worry though, whilst doing NaNoWriMo is on my 101in1001 list, I haven’t given […]
