A Recap of 2007

This is how my 2007 went in terms of my 101-in-1001 list.

7. level up Ragnarok priestess to 99/70
I’ve decided that I won’t do this anymore since the Philippine Ragnarok Online Community pretty much sucks now no matter how they try to revive it.  Too many bots and too little people who actually play.  I don’t really want to waste my money on this even if I totally enjoy playing.  I think I’ll spend my money on something more beneficial… and maybe morally uplifting.

9. learn to decently play the brass flute and perform 3 pieces
I started relearning to play the flute last December.  So far, I know 5 notes: F, E flat, C, D, and B flat.  I tried playing Mary Had a Little Lamb but I think I’m not ready yet.  Got to keep practicing!  And I think that sooner or later, I have to find a teacher who can help with the scales and more advanced stuff.

16. learn to bake: COOKIES!
Yes, I have finally learned how to bake cookies.  My new boyfriend Steve taught me.  We made really rich and stroke-inducing cookies.  It’s actually really easy.  I thought it would be rocket science or something.  But all you have to do is measure the ingredients, mix them all together, put on the pan and bake them!  I’m going to try baking cookies on my own one of these days.

20. learn to type with proper fingers
I’m happy to say that I finally can type without always looking at the keyboard!  Woot woot!  But I’m still at 40 wpm on the average.  I’ll keep practicing.

29. no junk food, candies and sweets for 3 months
It was really hard at first but I must say that it was a very effective diet plan.  I felt cleaner, lighter and freer.

32. learn about Greenpeace, join and be active

No success here.  They were at the mall again a few months back and I still didn’t sign up.  I feel bad about myself.

33. be a Habitat for Humanity volunteer
I tried contacting them through their website but no one has tried to get in touch with me.  I even filled out that volunteer form but still nothing.  Their office here in Cebu is really out of my way so I can’t just go there when I so please.  Hohum.

38. have an inventory of the clothes I have and donate those that I will never ever wear
Yes! Finally did this!  I thought this would never get done.  And amazingly, my sister’s clothes got sorted too.  I thought that we would be naked after the whole thing but fortunately, we still had some clothes left to wear.  And you won’t believe how much clothing we gave away to our relatives.  I totally forgot to take pictures because this goal slipped my mind. We were busy cleaning up the whole room, too.

76. walk 100 miles
This is going at a snail’s pace because 1) I am lazy, 2) School keeps me up at night sometimes and 3) I keep getting cough and colds.  I wonder when I’ll be able to finish this.

83. buy Php 300 Smart load using my own money
I don’t really use my Smart sim that much so maybe that’s why I never made an effort to spend my money on load.  I did start using Sun Cellular last December.  And I did buy Php300 Sun load with my own money. I guess I’m crossing this off then.  This is not even a technicality. I’m going to have to buy my Sun load with my own money every month.

I really hope that 2008 will be a more productive, focused and aware year for me.  I’m still getting the hang of this.

Finally!

I decided to participate in this project since I have challenged myself to rise above everything I’ve been through. It’s going to be hard since I hardly follow through with anything I commit myself to. But I will really try. Not to prove anything to anyone but to show myself that I can really do anything that I put my mind into.

After almost three days, I finally completed my 101 Things to do in 1001 Days List! I am so happy. This blog will be for the sole purpose of giving updates to whoever decides to keep up with my life. Hahahaha!ü I’ll try to post pictures to make my completed goals as real to me as to anyone else.

Peace!
