The list: 50 things in 500 days

      11 Comments on The list: 50 things in 500 days
    Inspired by Ana’s blog earlier this month I decided to make a list of 50 things that I want to do in 500 days. Some of these things are to learn new things, some of them are to kick my ass and finally do it and others are just for fun!

    It took me a while to come up with everything on this list. The funny thing was, that I only started reading other peoples lists until I finished my own and didn’t change anything after that! This tiny fact makes this list really my list.

    So, what’s the plan? How does this work? Starting Monday 18 November 2013, I have 500 days, until midnight Monday 1 April 2015 to cross off all the items on this list. The completed items will be italic and striped, blog posts about the progress will appear on the blog as I go along. In my new widget you can follow how many days I have left.

    Aaargh! Unfortunately lists longer than about 20 items scare me. Too daunting. But I wish you good luck with yours, of course.

    If you watch all the “Happy Days” shows will that lead you to watching the spin offs:
    Mork & Mindy, Laverne & Shirley…

      Nanu nanu! Sadly I could only find the first season of Mork&Mindy and I already watched them a couple of times. It’s very funny! Don’t know Laverne & Shirley though, will look it up when I’m done with Happy Days.

    Added the two new teas I drank at Boxing Day. Very delicious ones I must add! Three more to go. One already waiting for a review blog post.

    Also, I got to level 39 in TheSettlersOnline today. Whoohoo!

    Donated a box of stuff to a thrift store yesterday. Item 21 is completed! Although I’m already planning the next box, I really want to de-clutter my life.
