Life needs goals. Most recently, my goal was to be house-free. I accomplished this goal on Friday April 8, 2011! Yahoo!!
But that goal was about freedom from my past, and was not about building my future.
That's what this blog & goal are for: my future. I hope that when I prove I can accomplish these 101 things in the next 1001 days, I will also have created strong building blocks for my future.
(Sidenote: I love metaphors. I am considering having one of my goals be 'speak only in metaphors for one day'. But that might be like trying to nail jell-o to the wall, while looking for a needle in a haystack, as it's raining cats and dogs and everything's coming up roses in the sunshine of my life. Or something like that. In any case, it'd be hard, perhaps I will only communicate in metaphors in written form for a day. Probably a good idea for when I'm NOT teaching.)
Thanks to Janey Canuck for introducing me to this idea, and for allowing me to borrow a couple of her ideas too! Also to Melissa & Holly for the original idea. Bear with me on this journey, and kick me in the pants (metaphorically) if I start slagging off.
My current end date for this goal is Saturday January 11, 2014. I was going to make it end on January 27, 2014, which will be my 32nd birthday (Gah!) But, that would mean waiting until May 2, 2011 to start. And with 2 weeks of holiday starting Saturday, I'd like to get started then!!
Wish me luck!!
