WHOO HOOOO!

Soooooo I definitely thought for the longest time that this challenge was supposed to end on September 21st....
And so I already did my final tally.... awkward....

My final count is...Collapse )

Here's to 2.75 years of our lives spent (hopefully) in productivity and wish fulfillment! :D

Major failure from Pollita85

Hello again, everyone. Well well, I cannot believe that this challenge is coming to an end already. It seems like only yesterday that I was writing my list, and I remember thinking that September 2011 was forever away. And yet here we are, September 2011.

To be honest, the last 1001 days have not been the easiest and I am so far from my goal it's unreal. I have suffered a lot of sadness in the last 2 and a half years, although I feel that I'm starting to get myself back on track now and so I do plan on starting a new 101 challenge soon in honor of my new life :) 

If anyone wants to follow me or my new challenge my journal is friends only, however add me and leave me a comment and I'll add you in - I'm always happy to meet new friends!

So before I start on my list of (un)achievements, I'll give you a little information on how my life has changed since I started this challenge. January 1st 2009 I was 23 years old, I was engaged to my fiance of 6 years, I was living between the UK and the US and was in the middle of applying for my green card so I could live there permanently. I was out of work because of the impending move, but I had lots of nice things planned. Life was going well. 

Fast forward to September 2011, I'm 26 years old, single after my fiance ended things 6 weeks before our wedding (and while I was pregnant although unfortunately I miscarried), I have a full time job but I'm making the move into being a full time photographer. I recently lost my Dad and my heart is pretty much broken right now. I'm 20 lbs HEAVIER than I was at the start of the challenge (even though I was still fat then...). I have dated someone since my ex-fiance but nothing serious and definitely nothing I could class as a relationship, and I'm very lonely. I'm living in the UK permanently with no plans to return to the US. It's unlikely I'll ever be able to have a child so I've adopted a fur-child instead (Golden Retriever). I'm looking into adopting a child in the next 5 years or so. I have two houses, one inherited from my dad after he died, another given by my mum, and I'll be buying a third house for investment back in Oklahoma at the start of 2012. 

I guess there's a lot going on, but everything else I'll update in my private journal. Onto the challenge!Collapse )

Mission 101 Ends this month!!

Mission 101 2009 is ending SEPTEMBER 29! Can you believe we've made it 1001 days? How have things changed since you started on January 1, 2009? How many goals have you accomplished? Will you try and cram a few more in before time runs out? Will you make a new 101 list??

Personally, I started this Mission 101 in Ohio, moved to France and then out to Arizona. I got my BA and started grad school. I was single and this month I'll celebrate one year with my partner. It's amazing what can be accomplished in 1001 days!

I hope everyone will share their lists -- completed or not -- as we get to the end of this journey!

Update

Here's the update. Completed goals are crossed out, ones with progress or part-way done are in bold.

 I have not completed everything, but I think I've done fairly well, considering that I mostly forgot about this list and that certain goals became impossible to complete since we moved away from friends and civilization 2 years ago.

Mission 101 Progress Report: Day 921 (Plus something I learned)

I'm posting an update now because I just accomplished a major milestone: For the first time, I moved to a place where I can stay indefinitely (as long as I keep the job I currently have, which is also of indefinite duration). I thought now was a good time to assess where I am and what I need to focus on next, and also to share something I've learned about the Mission 101 process.

The goals that are newly completed since the last time I posted a progress report are: 7 and 22.

Just some general questions...

We're just under 150 days left in the challenge. How are you all doing on your lists? Are you behind, ahead, right on track? Are you doing anything to make sure you accomplish your goals before the 1001 days are up?

What have you learned so far? Is there anything you wish you'd done differently? What goal are you most proud of accomplishing so far?

Do you think you'll be taking on this challenge again after the 1001 days are up? Do you have plans to begin again right away, or after a few months, or even years?
