Falling Forward

101 in 1001 – October Update

Posted by in 101 in 1001, Projects

Completed Goals:

27. Donate clothes I know I will never wear – finally clearing out all the old stuff I know I’ll never fit into again, or just plain don’t like anymore. No more baggage!

70. Keep on top of the washing – We have a new system, and it’s working well, so I’m going to consider this one done.

61. Do something memorable for my birthday – I did this actually, the trip to London is burnt into  my brain, hehe. Next year I might try something a little different tho :)

38. Buy new perfume - Paul Smith  Women. Mm.

42. No fizzy drinks for a month - I’m pretty sure I lasted longer than a month, and I actually don’t enjoy fizzy drinks that much anymore. Result.

68. Get 50+ views on at least 200 of my 365 portraits on flickr – this is completed and I am so glad!

86. Clear up my acne – you know what, I think I’m going to mark this done, because altho my skin isn’t clear, I definitely no longer have acne. Result!

That’s it for October, but there will be more coming soon :)


Sorry Kidlets

Hey kids! I’m sorry I’ve not been around, I’m sure the three of you who have this on google reader have really missed me ;)

I don’t have a good excuse really, just a myriad of bad ones. The laptop I’m using is incredibly slow, I work two jobs, I’ve been knitting lately and I’m just kinda tired.

But, I promise I’ll be better. Not starting right now, because I’m about to watch a film, but soon ;)

In other news, I had all my hair cut off, and I LOVE IT.
