Day Zero Project Update: Week 49-54

30 Sep

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) (26/26)

9. See 101 new movies (68/101)

  • Lockout — Luc Besson’s new scif(ish) adventure film.  It was fun, but there were a few scenes that just confused me.
  • Ran — Akiro Kurosawa’s film is based partly on Shakespeare’s King Lear, so perfect to watch after reading the play.
  • The Blind Side — Good feel good movie.  Grabbed it at the library
  • Safe — J had been wanting to see this for awhile.  And I love a good action flick, especially starring Jason Statham.
  • The Mechanic — Another Statham film, but one I hadn’t seen and it was sitting on our shelf.  Not quite as good as Safe.
  • Moneyball — Surprisingly good movie
  • End of Watch — Got few tickets through AMC’s Stubs program. Thank goodness we didn’t pay.  Many issues with this one.
  • The Vow — Redbox afternoon pick.  Typical Nicholas Sparks, but I do like fluffy romances every once in a while.
  • Friends with Kids — A great, honest love story.
  • The Cabin in the Woods — I loved the big twist concept.  Amazing movie!

12. See all of IMDB’s Top 250 movies  (15/250)

  • Ran

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

25. Buy a moleskine notebook — Done!  I grabbed a classic black unlined one for my design inspirations.

28. Blog 1001 times  — 59 times this period.  I’m past the halfway point for this challenge!  (582/1001)

32. Finish 30 reading challenges (15/30)

  • Fables reading challenge — Finally finished this by reading Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love
  • Romance reading challenge — completed this one with the help of rest of Susan Wiggs’ Tudor Rose trilogy
  • Harry Potter — Loved rereading these and then watching the corresponding movie.

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

37. Pass 250,000 pages read for my 1,000,000 pages challenge (97,642/250,000)

65. Save $5 for every task completed ($75)

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

What I Plan to Do Next Week.

35. Join or create a book club — I’ve found a club that will meet later in October.

5. Make a playlist of my favorite 101 songs — I finished putting all the music on the server.  Now I need to sort through it…

Overall Progress
