101 things in 1001 Days

I was inspired to do my own list by several of you doing it, so I joined mission101 and wrote out 80 things to start off with and I start tomorrow! Ive got my list here on lj where I can keep detailed tabs on it, and also here. It should be a lot of fun, and I'll probably be posting about it a lot from now on :D I need stuff like this to get me motivated.

If anyone can think of some other stuff to add to this list tell me! Coming up with 101 is hard. Ive done 80 to start off with and I'll fill in the other 20 as I go, seeing as 1001 days is such a long time, Im sure I'll get new goals as I go.

Also, this post is public, which is a bit scary! Eek!

number 9 scares me shitless, I should do one but the thought of death and not being around scare me more than anything in the world.

Why wouldnt you be able to drive?
Jan. 6th, 2010 01:15 am (UTC)
Yeah, Ive been putting off 9 since Rory was born, its a big thing to do, I just really want to get down what would happen to him if me and Dave died =/

I probably WILL be able to drive, but obviously because I have Tourette Syndrome I might not be able to. I do tic quite badly in the car and theres no way I would drive if I would be a risk on the roads. To be honest, I think Id be fine because when Im focused on a task I dont tic, but you never know, and I have a feeling people with my form of TS arent allowed anyway.

33) Find out if Lost is any good, if it is, watch it.

Oh it is. IT IS.
Jan. 6th, 2010 11:51 am (UTC)
Yeah, everyone goes on about it, I really need to see what the fuss is about!

Im so obsessed with Glee atm though. So so obsessed.

i LOVE mcdonalds. don't care how bad it is.
Jan. 6th, 2010 11:53 am (UTC)
I do too :D its SO good, omg, over Xmas they had this burger called 'The Great Cheese and Bacon'. I think I ate about 6 of them in a month, which is a lot seeing as they're a heart attack in one bite!

As of today Im quitting though, seeing as my birthday is 6 months and a day away :D that way I can have it on my birthday as a big treat!
Jan. 6th, 2010 06:21 pm (UTC)
Good luck with this. I'd quite like to do one of my own but I think I'd fail miserably! Maybe once I graduate I'll try it
Jan. 6th, 2010 10:28 pm (UTC)
