41: Quit a bad habit
I’m not telling you what my bad habit is. If I were proud of it, I wouldn’t need to quit said bad habit. I was almost successful but fell off the wagon. Still trying though which is really something to be proud of.
42: Journal in the Q&A book every day
I’m up to date! I don’t always remember to write in it every day but the questions are often about life and not that specific day so writing ahead or catching up is easy. I love the format of this journal and will enjoy seeing how my responses have changed over 5 years.
43: Shampoo the camper couch
Well…I lived in filth long enough and shampooing the camper couch is no longer my concern.
44: Shoot my gun
When I wrote this down, I had owned my hand gun 5 months and never used it. It took me another month to finally get around to it and I am so glad I did! It’s fun!! I know there is a lot of controversy about guns right now, and I am hesitant to get into the depths of how I feel, but I am glad to have it. I do think I am better off when shit hits the fan, which it will, and I will not go down without a fight even if it means taking flight into the forest to live as a nomad for the rest of my days.
45: Host a breakfast hangout with L & A
Oh L & A, my mountain friends….I always threatened that I would make them come over to hang out with me at 6 am since I always hung out with them until after midnight. I’m a total grandma people. 8 pm to bed sound perfect to me.
46: Mail Terrance’s gift
It took me 7 months but I finally did it. My friend sent me a Christmas gift and I failed to send her’s on time…or even in a timely manner. So I sent if for her birthday in June.
47: Pay off Credit Card
One of the greatest joys of moving was paying off all my debt after selling my stuff. I managed to keep them paid off until now, which I am still hopeful come time for my January payments. A lot has happened with the animals and life and I just don’t have the income to support the extra’s right now. But fingers crossed that a 2016 miracle occurs! I love being debt free!!
48: Cancel Birchbox
I was attempting to simplify my life and decrease the money going out to useless crap. I was officially subscription addiction free…until October….
49: Cancel Stitch Fix
Again with the addiction. I did cancel this service for most of the year but they sucked me back in this month with a free fix. GAH! But it was free so I’m counting this one as a success.
50: Buy a second external hard drive
I haven’t officially gotten this done but have gotten a new computer with an equal amount of memory…
51: Clean up and download all devices
Happiness is knowing all of your information is saved externally and all of your devices are synced and updated.
52: Look into returning to school
I don’t know. I swore after the rejection of 2011 I would stop trying. It’s just this nagging bit in the back of my mind that I never finished college and that my future probably depends on me doing so…
53: Have a homemade crystal dig with L
L, my mountain friend, was always trying to get C and I to go to the Saline Valley in CA for a camping trip and crystal dig. I could never get C organized enough to want to go so I kept saying I would create a crystal dig at home. Unfortunately this never happened before I moved.
54: Purchase CAT stock
I think I bought two shares this year on two separate occasions!
55: Complete the Sexiest Month Ever challenge
That would be the full challenge that this list came from. It’s on the books. I am still hopeful, but it may not happen in 2015.
56: Buy a complete business suit
I shopped online and even tried one on, but never pulled the trigger.
57: Volunteer somewhere for something
I can’t count my senior center work in this even though I donated my time for a lot of things. Looking back, I can’t believe I didn’t accomplish this! I am usually a gung-ho volunteer person and the only thing I can associate this too is my moving and the chaos surrounding all of the change.
58: Try Crossfit
Wow, I had high hopes for a fit new year.
59: Attend a festival
Before I left, I got to attend the Summer Arts and Music Festival in Benbow. I got to hang out with my dear friends from up north and even C hung out for an afternoon which never happens!
60: Run a 5K
All I hear is laughing…
To be continued…..
