Time for my December and January report. The new year rolled on in, and this is my last year for the 101 things. I'm making some progress, and I am hoping to knock a few of these goals out soon.
7. Join a dance class for at least a month
For the last month, Thursday night is my belly-dancing night. So much learning! I can do all sorts of hip circles, shimmies, and cool stuff now. I've still got four weeks left in the class, so I will be learning a lot more.
31. Organize “my documents” folder in order to easily find all documents
I organized, purged, moved around, and thoroughly combed through all my documents. I deleted old stuff that's no longer important and came up with a good system that should work for quite a long time to come. Finally glad to have that huge task done. We'll see how long it takes me to get a similar job done on my photos, as I have lots more photos than documents.
33. Do 5 video posts on my blog
With the bari posts I've been doing, I'll call this one done! Don't worry; I'll still keep video posting from time to time. I have too much fun with it to stop!
44. Donate (or attempt to donate) blood three times
I tried to donate blood again, but my iron level was still too low to donate. It's fine -- I'm not anemic -- but not good enough. I'm now taking daily iron pills, and I will try one more time in about a month.
49. Implement three household changes to be more eco-friendly
Matt and I have made a second change: we now clean almost exclusively with vinegar and water. I mean, we use dish soap (biodegradable), but we've phased out most commercial cleaners. The most awesome part is that Matt is completely on board with this, though finances might be a major factor in that. Still, it makes me feel good about our household.
64. Bowl over 100
close enough! I've spent several bowling trips working on this. Slowly but steady, getting better.
Oh, and Matt normally does much better. In our first game, he scored 126 and I had something in the 70s. We both like bowling, so we're hoping to go more often and ultimately improve.
82. write 4 posts reviewing peer-reviewed biological literature
I posted about coffee and reviewed some literature about coffee growing. It's a nice little start for me. I really miss reading biological literature.
101. learn three songs on guitar
Guitar, baritone uke? I call the bari uke close enough, and these are my goals. Glad I've been learning. I enjoy music, and I'm glad it's a larger part of my life now.
