Day Zero Project Update: Week 45-48

26 Aug

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

5. Make a playlist of my favorite 101 songs — I have almost completed getting all my music onto the server so I can start sorting through them to find my favorites…

9. See 101 new movies (58/101)

  • The Dark Knight Rises — I liked it, but it definitely had some drawbacks and inconsistencies.
  • The Decoy Bride — Starring David Tennant.  A cute little romantic comedy.  Seen on netflix.
  • God Bless America — J has been wanting to watch Bobcat Goldthwait’s new movie for awhile.  Very dark but good.
  • New Year’s Eve — romantic crap, but just the ticket sometimes
  • Tonight You’re Mine — Awesome music romance…  pick it up!
  • Wanderlust — I thought it was really funny, but then again I am in love with Paul Rudd
  • John Carter — An entertaining old style scifi movie
  • The Raid: Redemption — crazy action flick from Singapore.  J just had to watch it.  It was intense.

10. Spend a day in PJs watching movies — I was feeling particularly crappy.  Thankfully I needed to watch The Wizard of Oz and Tin Man for my book review and I added the mini series Lost in Austen for a bit of fun.  √

12. See all of IMDB’s Top 250 movies  (14/250)

  • 113. Batman Begins — in preparation for going to see The Dark Knight Rises we had to rewatch the first two
  • 9. The Dark Knight — Thankfully we own both movies

20. Reread all of Jane Austen’s novels (1/6) — Finished Northanger Abbey as part of Austen in August event

24. Keep a journal for this project — ongoing

28. Blog 1001 times — 35 times this period.  Not a huge amount, but a respectable number. (523/1001)

32. Finish 30 reading challenges (12/30)

  • YA Challenge — I didn’t read all the books I wanted to for this one, but I did have some great substitues.

33. Read my height in books (65/68in.)

37. Pass 250,000 pages read for my 1,000,000 pages challenge (84,418/250,000)

65. Save $5 for every task completed ($65)

72. Complete “50 Questions that Free Your Mind” (34/50)

100. Scrapbook 100 pages (100/100) — completed, but I’m still behind on my scrapbooking…

What I Plan to Do Next Week.

17. Reread all of the Harry Potter books (6/7)

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

72. Complete “50 Questions that Free Your Mind” (20/50) — I’m getting through them very slowly

Overall Progress
