With that, let's talk about my 88 in 888 progress. The medical stuff is going to keep me from doing many things (i.e. traveling, running/biking, sports, etc.). However, just because I'm rehabbing doesn't mean I can't read a book or watch a movie. How about write and plan and do more artwork? In fact, I've been spending some of my time the last couple of nights working on some creative side projects. Nothing major, but I have made a few designs for Zissou stickers/buttons for Vegas and stickers for my website.
Back to the list...I have already began working towards a couple of items on the list. As you can see above, #10 (Create personalized stickers and leave them in 25 places around the world) is progressing. I just received Lord of the Flies in the mail, so I will start reading my first book towards #34 (Read 5 books off the Time's Top 100 List). I received the book through Paperbackswap.com today, so that satisfies 1 of 2 parts to #86 (Send and receive at least one book each on Paperbackswap.com). I've started on #54 (Donate 100,000 grains of rice on Freerice.com). I'm up to 4870...only 95,130 to go! I've also started a blog (#60), as you probably know. I will give myself a few more entries before I officially say I'm maintaining it. Finally, I did complete my first goal...
#88. Write a letter to myself to open on the last day of of the list (2/18/2013)
COMPLETED - DAY 1 (9/14/2010)
Last night I wrote a letter to my future 30 year old self. It was quite difficult to do. I included the things that are going on in my life right now, my thoughts about certain things and some random quick facts about things going on in society today. The letter ended up being pretty short. I do think I will enjoy reading it in a 886 days. It's scary to think about myself that far in advance. Hopefully I don't change too much, unless it's for good reasons.
This was meant to be the first thing I complete, and sure enough I did. 1 down...87 to go!
