I’m 26

14Sep10

Yep, my year of being 25 is over and nope I haven’t done everything on my list. I’ve done lots that I haven’t blogged about so will post those over the next few months. I’m going to keep going as I’d like to do everything on my list but for now I’ll leave you with […]


I love this blog – Not That Kind of Girl – http://www.notthatkindofgirl.net – proof that I am not the only person in the world oddly obsessed with doing 250 unusual things in a year then telling everyone about it.


Well after a bit of a drop in list thing productivity that done-ometer is going to bounce right back up because I did 13 list things IN ONE DAY! It was one of the oddest days I’ve had for a long time but completely awesome too. My friend Adam suggested we spend a day doing list things so along with another Adam we came up with a slightly random itinerary and spent the day crossing things off my list.


Bless me readers, for I have sinned. It has been far too long since my last update… I’ve been busy making (and eating!) cake, sitting around watching Christmas TV specials and watching it snow! I have made some list progress, though I haven’t won the lottery yet so that’s obviously a disappointment (at least it is still technically a bad habit!)


I can’t believe it has been three months since I turned 25 and started this silly challenge. I’m actually quite impressed for keeping up with this whole thing, as I’ve written elsewhere I’m not really known for my sticking power when it comes to by big daft ideas so ten bonus points to me.


It’s been another exciting week at List Towers this week (List Towers being a fancy way of saying ‘my sofa’) with my list idea travelling halfway across the world to New Zealand. Paul Gardner has decided to start his own version of my silly challenge, creating a ‘bucket list’ of things he’d like to do (though has quite sensibly not put a deadline on it). In his introductory post he cites my blog as part of his inspiration which is very cool. I’m wondering if this sort of thing could be my ‘teach someone something’ thing so might put together a guide to making your own list. What do you reckon?


I didn’t quite manage to rustle up a full Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings on Thursday so had to settle for a turkey bagel instead. I’ve made a start on some of the more long-running list things like starting to read Sense and Sensibility (only 9 more books to read after that) and picking the films I’m going to watch (no rom-coms unfortunately).
