31 Things: Where I'm At So Far

This is my second year making a list of things to accomplish before my birthday. I got the idea from the blog  Yes and Yes. I turn 31 on March 29th, so I made a list after my 30th birthday of items to accomplish before my 31th birthday. We are a little over 4 1/2 months away, so time to see where I'm at. 

31 Things Before I Turn 31 on March 29th 2012

1. Learn to Knit; complete at least one project: This one is still in the works. I have picked out a project, I simple need to get the supplies and get started. I intend to do this in the next few weeks, I just need to get some bills paid first. 
2. Write my first book: I have a couple projects started, and hopefully now that I no longer have fatigue brain, I can focus more on these projects.
3. Read complete works of Jane Austen: I lost interest in this one. Well, I've actually read all but Persuasion and Mansfield Park, which I would like to read Persuasion at some point. I can't get interested in Mansfield Park. I actually modified this goal to "Read six Jane Austen inspired books." There are a ton of books inspired by Jane Austen being released. Revisions of Pride and Prejudice, continuation stories. modern adaptations, and even supernatural versions. I'm on my 4th right now, so this should be easy enough to complete.
4.  Swim with the dolphins: I researched this before going to Florida but a) it was fairly expensive and b) my health wasn't very good at the time. This will definitely roll over into another year.
5. Take voice lessons: I've lost interest in this one as well. I might replace it with something else.
6. Learn to make tiramisu: Still planning on doing this one, but likely after the first of the year. It's going to be cookie and fudge time  here in a few weeks! So I'll wait. I think it would be a fun Valentine's Dish.
7. Take 5th Dimensional healing class: Admittedly, lost interest in this as well. Replacement coming.
8. Attend an Opera: This might not happen, only because the next show I'm interested in doesn't happen until April. Definitely a rollover.
9. Visit the Harry Potter theme park: DONE!!
10. Complete a jigsaw puzzle on my own: Getting this set up today!! I cleaned  off my living room table, so I'm ready to go.
11. Convert our family videos from VHS to DVD: This is another one that really I'm just waiting until I have an extra $100 for the program. I think after the first of the year I'll be able to do this.
12. Schedule myself a Spa Day:  Still working on this
13.  Attend a Kansas City Storm Women Football game: Another rollover as their season doesn't start until April  or May
14.  Study A Course in Miracles; attend a workshop: DONE!!!
15.  Heal my cancer: If you've been reading my blog you know my progress on this one.
16. Create a weekly yoga schedule: I did this for awhile, then got out of it. I really would like to get back into yoga. I need a new mat and some videos; I'll put them on my Christmas list :)
17.  Journal daily: I really haven't done this. I do journal, but it's pretty random.
18. Go on a Missouri weekend and see all historical landmarks: I've done a little research and am thing that maybe March, I can get some gals together for this. I don't think Winter is the right time, but by March things will be nicer. Hey, maybe it can even be my birthday weekend!
19. Go on a 7 day sugar cleanse: I did this, more unintentional because I was deathly ill, but still I think it was more like a month. I'm limiting my sugar intake now on my cleanse and it feels great!
20. Heal my eczema: Ugh! This is the bane of my existence! Everytime I think things are almost healed, more sores appear. I've been told it's because of liver overload. I suspect that as I do more coffee enemas and my body heals and releases the tumors, the sores will stop appearing and my skin will heal as well. Can't wait!
21. Do a gall bladder cleanse: I've actually done this before, and recently realized I have no desire to do it again. Another one that needs a replacement.
22.  Read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galax: DONE!
23.Write myself a love letter: I keep "planning" on doing this, but haven't. I will though.
24. Take the "No TV for 30 Days" Challenge: DONE!!
25. Read something by Thich Nhat Hanh: Another one I've lost interest in. Replacement item!

26. Create a delicious gluten free, sugar free, banana bread recipe: DONE!
27. Clear out basement; sell items on Craig's List: DONE! Actually, I ended up donating the stuff to a gal whose house burned down. Better use for it don't you think?
28. Organize all my photos: DONE!!
29. Watch "Black Swan": DONE!!!
30. Try Pole Dancing: I have a friend that teaches this and another who really wants to do this. I honestly haven't had the energy, but hopefully I will prior to my birthday.
31.Clean my house weekly: Well, for awhile people cleaned for me, and yes, it happened weekly. I would say parts get cleaned regularly. The kitchen for example, and dog floor gets swept a lot. I'm going to go ahead and say I'm doing ok with this one. 

 Well, in summary I have 11 items completed, 13 items either to do or in progress, 3 rollovers and 4 items that need replaced due to loss of interest. Any ideas on what to replace them with? I think I'll add Publish a VLOG, Read the Complete Works of Frank Baum (I'm 2/3 of the way done with this already), and then I'll have to brainstorm the other two. 
How are you doing with your goals? Anyone else doing this project? How is it going?

  1. If you know what you're wanting to knit I may have supplies if you want to try it sooner than your funding allows. ~ Katharine
