Progress report

It has been 186 days since I started attempting to do 100 things, with 814 more to go. I’m 18.6% done, day-wise, but with only 7% of my list accomplished (12% if you include things in progress, which…you really shouldn’t), I feel the need for a bit of padding. So here’s what I’m going to do (no cheating). I am going to make a list appendage. So to that end, I present:

OTHER Awesome Things I’ve Done While Attempting To Do 100 Things In 1000 Days

  1. Go on a submarine
  2. Go ziplining

  1. We could do most of this in a weekend, if only I was there!

  2. I bet I’ll end up getting a lot of them done before the current list is even over. Now if I could start crossing things of THAT list, I’d be happy. Maybe I’ll make a scrapbook tomorrow. Or ice a cake. COME BAAAAAAAAACK!
