I've done a lot of bitching in recent years about New Years Resolutions...probably in part because when I did make them (years and years ago) I was just as bad at keeping them as the next person ;) So I quit making them. But then I start setting myself "goals"...not necessarily to start right on New Year's Day, but lo and behold they always came about at that time of year (go figure). And then I would always think "well, this has to be done by the end of the year".
Really, how is that different from a New Year's Resolution?
Therefore, when many of my friends started participating in the 101 in 1001 Challenge, I was intrigued. Approximately 2.75 years in which to fulfill a whopping 101 goals? Should I do it? Could I do it?
Well, last Wednesday (April 20, 2011 to be exact) I decided that at the very least I should try. Some of you may have already noticed the new tab on my blog, dedicated to this little (heh) challenge. As of right now I only have 74 goals on that list. Some are super easy (honestly, how hard is it to pay for the person behind you at a drive through?)...others will definitely prove a bit more difficult, especially for me (take a spontaneous trip is going to be hard - I plan my vacations months and sometimes years in advance). But I've already gotten to work on a few of them, so here goes nothing!
Stay tuned for some recipe posts this week, by the way. Yeah, I know, finally. haha
