365 Project


While trotting the blogusphere yesterday I found this blog called Twyste.  It’s a great blog and I’ve already gotten a few bright ideas from there.  I had already started this check list of things to do in the coming year (I got that idea from my friend Rita at Soulcomfort (another great blog).  Then I saw on Twyste that she had a “drop in the bucket list”.  I love that!  These things are pretty small compared to say sky diving or swimming with killer sting rays so that is the perfect name.  I saw some things in common on our lists too.  I finally got mine typed up today since I’m working on my 2012 journal.  My journal will be half a (8.5×11 inch) sheet of paper and right now my list is two pages long.  I’m using card stock to print my lists right now.  I don’t have a good program on this laptop for making nice documents so I’m limited to using google docs.  I can’t download anything either because I don’t have enough room.  Anyway, that will just make me have to get more creative.  But basically I’m going to be doing a lot of organizing and purging!  I am a list maker too so I actually have more lists that fall under some of these things.  I’ll save that insanity for myself.

Okay, so here is my “drop in the bucket list”  hehe

  1. Wow; you’ve got a busy year ahead of you! I think I probably need to do every one of those items too, but I’m not ready to add them all to this year’s list! Good luck to you and keep us posted on your progress.

  2. I have some friends who are doing the 365 project; it’s fun to see their photos. I wish I could do it but I know I’d fail.

    • You know, you could still do it. Even if you miss a day here or there… it is still neat to see everyone’s pictures. There was someone on there in Spain and I started following them and they added me. It is so cool to see pictures of GREEN grass and trees that were taken on the same day I took pictures of solid frozeness.

Let me know what you think of this post.
