Day Zero Project Update: Week 41-44

29 Jul

Instead of daily posts, I thought it would be a lot easier for me and you if I did weekly update posts.  These will track my progress each week.  I will highlight what I’ve done, what I want to do, and any interesting tidbits.  Sometimes I’ll add pictures and/or links.  Hopefully these posts will keep me accountable to me list…

What I Did

3. Listen to 26 new bands (one for each letter of the alphabet) (20/26)

  • Alex Clare “Damm Your Eyes”
  • The Lumineers “Ho Hey”

5. Make a playlist of my favorite 101 songs — in progress

8. Have a Pixar marathon — ongoing

  • Wall-E — A’s pick
  • Brave — I loved it!  A great new Pixar movie starring a girl!

9. See 101 new movies (50/101)

  • Rio — Fairly decent kids movie
  • Brave — Amazing!
  • The Amazing Spider-Man — Great movie!
  • In Time — so so
  • This Means War — I could have done without the romance angle.  Would have been better as a buddy cop movie.
  • The Last Legion — pretty boring retelling of the story of fall of Rome and Excalibur
  • One Night with the King — a badly acted version of Esther’s story from the Bible
  • 9 — Great children’s flick with an interesting message
  • Crazy, Stupid, Love — Amazing movie with Steve Carrell and Ryan Gosling.  A Must See!
  • Bright Star — This story of John Keats has been on my list forever.  Grabbed it from the library.  Good, if a little moody.
  • Unknown — Liam Neeson being Liam Neeson.  Better than I thought it would be, but not really great.
  • 30 Minutes or Less — Not the best…
  • Mirror, Mirror — Loved that Snow White wasn’t a damsel in distress, but the rest was a bit jokey.
  • Casa de Mi Padre — Amazing Will Ferrell movie!  Loved the little touches.
  • Rise of the Planet of the Apes — Better than I thought it would be…

12. See all of IMDB’s Top 250 movies  (12/250)

  • Wall-E

24. Keep a journal for this project — Ongoing

26. Keep a “Six Words to Describe the Day” journal for 6 months — Finished!

27. Make a list of 101 inspirational quotes (45/101) — added to the page

28. Blog 1001 times (488/1001) 76 posts this period

32. Finish 30 reading challenges (11/30)

  • Graphic Novel
  • Vampires
  • Support Your Local Library

33. Read my height in books (60/68in.) — 5 inches this period

95. Participate in or create a scavenger hunt — I made one for the boys

What I Plan to Do Next Week.

35. Join or create a book club — Still waiting to find a good one.

72. Complete “50 Questions that Free Your Mind” (20/50) — really slacking on these…

Overall Progress
