Monthly Update for September

**This post was part of my old 101 challenge blog, and was merged over.

I've completed my first month. Not my first full month, but my first calendar month. Every month I will update everyone on my challenge progress. I'll go over everything I've done over the month, including any updates since last time.

016. Don't eat fast food more than twice a month, each month [1/34]
One month down! For September, I included the whole month because I didn't want to cheat myself by only counting the days of the challenge.
021. Take multi-vitamins everyday for a month [18/30]
I haven't completed a whole month yet because I started my challenge in the middle of the month. I have 18 days so far, so I should be finished by the middle of October.
027. Take 10 whole-day breaks from the Internet [1/10]
I completed one break this month. I'm thinking about taking at least one break each month, even after I've completed my goal. I think its healthy for me. Maybe for my next list, I'll make myself take a break from the computer, instead of just the internet. What do you think?
028. Wake up before 10am every morning consecutively for a year [0/365]
I am definitely not a morning person. This one is an unrealistic goal, I might have to end up not completing this one. Ugh. I can wake up early every once in a while, but I don't think I will be able to do it for a whole year.
034. Send 50 postcards via [18/50]
I've sent 18! I love sending postcards! I've received seven so far. I sent four today and I will send two tomorrow, so hopefully I will get some more postcards soon! Remember to check out my postcard blog, to see my postcards I've received. And if you want me to send you a postcard, then make a profile on Post Crossing, and then send me a message! Here is a link to my profile:
035. Donate 100,000 grains of rice at [850/100,000]
I want to accomplish 2,000 by the end of October. Hopefully I'll have more donated soon.
047. Visit all counties in Washington (old visits may count) [10/39]

I haven't visited anywhere soon since I started this challenge. I've only listed the ones that I visited before the challenge. 
061. Watch 26 movies starting with each letter of the alphabet [6/26]
I've only watched six so far. I want to get half done in October.
063. Watch all 8 seasons of Charmed [2/8]
I completed season 2 today! Woohoo! I will probably watch some more tomorrow.
065. Hang out with friends at least once a month [1/34]
I hanged out with my friend, Stephanie, on September 29th. She had a baby in the beginning in the month. This was my first day that I was actually able to see the baby. He is so cute! I wasn't able to get any pictures though. It sucks.
068. Watch 101 movies [2/101]
Only two movies so far, Bride Wars and Marley and Me. I need to watch some more movies.
078. Put $5 in savings for every task completed [$10/$505]
I've only completed two tasks so far so I only have $10 in savings.
080. Earn $100 from blogging in one year (previous money earned does not count) [$2.69/$100]
This is only half a month's worth so its not much. Hopefully I will have a lot more by next month.
082. Write a letter to myself to be opened on the last day of the challenge
This one was accomplished in the beginning of my challenge.
087. Own at least 50 piggy banks [8/50]
I haven't bought any since last time, but so far, I have eight piggy banks. Yay!
091. Add 100 more playing card sets to my collection [4/100]
I haven't gotten any more since the last time.
092. Add 200 more DVDs to my collection [10/200]
I haven't gotten any more since the last time.
096. Reach 50 followers on this blog [10/100]
I have 11 followers so far! Yay! Keep on following, please.
097. Blog about every completed item on the list [2/101]
I've only completed two goals so far, so I only have two here, but I have blogged about everything that I've progress on so far.
099. Create weekly goals and checklists to keep myself motivated
This one was also completed in the beginning when I created my notebook that I'm using for this challenge.

I think I've done a good job so far, don't you think?

Sounds like a successful first month.
