101 in 1001 Deadline Reached.

So yesterday was the deadline for my 101 in 1001 (101 accomplishments in 1001 days). A lot of things I never got around to doing because they either were no longer important to me, or I just couldn't get around to doing. But here is the complete list. Soon, I will have a new list.

I completed exactly 50 of these tasks.

1. Mail a PostSecret
2. Become an author

Go you!

Are you going to start a new list?
Oct. 13th, 2012 04:37 pm (UTC)
Jup! Gonna work on my new list this weekend :)
Oct. 12th, 2012 11:36 pm (UTC)
I can help you understand Magic: The Gathering :D
Oct. 13th, 2012 04:38 pm (UTC)
Isn't it going to be too tough without playing in person?
Oct. 13th, 2012 07:43 pm (UTC)
Possibly. Sigh :<
Oct. 13th, 2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
Guess we'll just have to meet up. Be at your house in five!
Oct. 13th, 2012 03:29 pm (UTC)
Wow - you did A LOT.
Maybe I will try this. What is this, around 3 years, yes?
Oct. 13th, 2012 04:41 pm (UTC)
Jup! I posted the list in January of 2009 :)
Oct. 14th, 2012 05:45 pm (UTC)
Heh, 50 is really cool - I gave up on my list. I don't even want to go back and see how many I completed. FAIL o_O

2 Questions.

1. What's a fuck-it bucket and where do I apply?

2. I don't think you should give up on making a voice reel because from that voice post you made that time, you have an excellent radio/recording voice. At least podcast more!
Oct. 15th, 2012 01:55 am (UTC)
Okay, so only one of those was a question.

P.S. You have achieved a lot, holy crap.
Oct. 15th, 2012 03:08 am (UTC)
Ahaaaa, but she did ask two questions in the first go, so she still wins the money ;)

Also, I don't know if achieving only half my list of 100 things in 3 years counts as a lot :[
Oct. 15th, 2012 03:06 am (UTC)
I will promptly add it to my new list :D
A Fuck-it bucket is an idea from Amy Sedaris's book I Like You
(from the book)
Go get a 1 gallon paintpail
Fill it with candy
write Fuck it Bucket on it
when shit gets you down
just say Fuck it, and
eat some motherfuckin’ candy
