101 in 1001

I’ve made a decision regarding my 101 in 1001 list. Technically, it still has just over 10 months on it: However, upon looking over the things left to tick off, I’ve found the cause of having so many left.

I don’t want to do them. There are some things on there from college and karate, from when I was ill and when I lived in one town, with certain resources.
I’ve decided therefore, to stretch the deadline from Monday July 19th 2010 to 500 days from now (Friday 21st January 2011), and created a list of 50 items.

I completed 53 of my previous 101 items  (see below), so I’m aiming to complete at least 48 of the 50 new choices. This gives me the same ratio of time/effort/items as 101 in 1001 days; just in half the time. (as this time I managed around half in 2/3rds the time; this will be an improvement).
I’ve kept some of the “in progress” projects as well as some of the old unstarted ones. Inspiration for some of the new ones came from A Piece of Wood‘s Bucket List. I just felt that with this sudden burst of newness in me, I should let my list reflect my desires.

Here’s the completed items from my previous 101 list:
