Black Friday is over

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

Whew! Black Friday is over! I did so much shopping today, I think its more than I've done with whole month! Make that two months! I got a netbook from Best Buy. I had to wait in line for two hours to pick it up. Then I went to Walmart, came home, slept, and went back to Walmart and Best Buy. Too much shopping for me. Hahaha. I've only accomplished a little over the past few days, but I haven't completed any more goals yet.

018. Lose 50 pounds [3/50]: Woo! Three whole pounds! Hahaha...I probably gained it back from Thanksgiving dinner.
027. Take 10 one-day breaks from the Internet [3/10]: I was so busy and tired today from Black Friday shopping that I didn't even think about going on the internet, or even the computer, for that matter.

Hmmm...that's all for now. Here's my to-do list for tomorrow:

001. Find a new book, and read 2 chapters
014. Find more quotes, upload, and blog about it
061. Watch another movie

I also need to go to the library, the post office, Walmart, the bank, and Joann. Hmm...I best get to sleep then. Good night everyone!

Long time no see

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

Sorry for the long wait. Its been a crazy week. Finals is a week and a half away. I finished all my speeches in speech class. Now I just have to wait for everyone else to finish, and to take my final. For my english class, I still have to write my final paper. Both my final speech and paper both have to be persuasive so I think I will write my paper on the same topic as my speech. Other than school, blogging life as been crazy too. Lately, I've been trying to drop 300 each on all 3 of my blogs. I still have yet to succeed though. I've only been able to get 300 on the two. Also, I am getting ready for a contest I will be hosting on my main blog [ travelin' with marie ] for December. It will be a holiday contest with a Christmas theme. Right now, I am still looking for sponsors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, then leave me a comment in [ this post ].

With everything else pushed aside, here are some updates to my list. Not much, I regret to admit, but here goes...
063. Watch all 8 seasons of Charmed [5/8]: I am now on Season 6. I love Charmed, and I thought I had watched all the episodes, but I was wrong. A lot of the episodes from seasons 4&5 I don't remember. As for season 6, I don't think I've seen any. Not sure though..
096. Reach 50 followers on this blog [25/50]: 25 followers! Woohoo! Thank you so much!

And I hate to say...that's it. Wow, I think its time for another to-do list. I will make one tonight. Does anyone want to help me out with this task?

100. Inspire 5 people to create their own lists [0/5]

To-Do List Results

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

Hmm..I went to meet my speech partner and I went to the Post Office. I also worked on my DVD inventory. As for my other non-related items, I didn't do them. I haven't had time to create the postcards and I haven't put in my order yet. My coupon expires tomorrow so if I don't create more items by tonight, then I'll just put in the order that I already have set up. As for my list, here is what I've accomplished:

001. Read 50 books [2/50]: I finished my book last night! I didn't expect to finish it, but I did. I read One for the Money by Janet Evanovich. Now I need to start a new book.
034. Send 50 postcards via [50/50]: COMPLETED! Yay! I finally sent out 50 postcards. I sent my final two today. You should try Postcrossing. Its really fun.
092. Add 200 more DVDs to my collection [94/200]: I finished my inventory. I guess I had my numbers messed up. I thought my starting point was at 200, but it was actually at 300, so I've only added 94 movies instead of what I thought I did. But that's ok, that's still a lot of movies in only two months!

Well, that's all I did for today. I completed 3 out 5 tasks on my to-do list. I guess that's ok.

Things to do: Monday

My last to-do list worked out pretty well and it was easy for me to keep track of what I needed to do. So, here's my list for tomorrow:

001. Read at least 3 chapters.
031. Put together a box because this week is the national collection week.
034. Send out 4 more postcards.
063. Finish the last episodes of the 5th season.
092. Update my inventory, then update my blog.

I think that's all. I also need to do other things that aren't necessarily related to my list:

Meet my speech partner at 4PM
Go to the post office
Create postcards for friends
Put in an order on the Kodak Gallery
Set up a Washington road trip for when my hubby comes back

Well, I guess they are related to my list, just not directly related. I'll update later to let you know what I've accomplished..♥

Another Update

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

Didn't do much today. Well, technically its 12:19 AM, so I guess it was yesterday. However, since I wasn't on the computer, I was able to contribute to one of my goals. Here is what I did:

001. Read 50 books [1/50]: I read a couple of chapters from my current book. I hope to finish it before the end of the month. The book doesn't take me long to read, I just haven't had time to get around to reading it.
027. Take 10 one-day breaks from the Internet [2/10]: Since I wasn't on the Internet, or even on the computer, I get to cross one day off. I feel proud. And I didn't even try to stay away from the computer. I was just doing too many things that I didn't even get a chance to go on the computer. It doesn't bother me either. But I'm back now. I guess I can't stay away for too long.
080. Earn $100 from blogging in one year [$15.01/$100]: I've made $16.02 as of 11/14/09. That's $1.01 since my last update and $2.65 for the month so far.
092. Add 200 more DVDs to my collection [100+/200]: I honestly have gotten so many new movies that I haven't had a chance to sit down, and add everything to my inventory. Maybe I should do that tomorrow...hmm. The last time I did inventory, I was at 100+. So I'm not sure where I'm at now. Maybe I should really do that tomorrow, who knows, maybe I'll have already accomplished this goal? Hmmm...maybe I'll do it now.
096. Reach 50 followers on this blog [22/50]: Yay! 22 followers! I am almost halfway to my goal. And I'm waaaayyyyy less than halfway through my challenge. So, I guess I'm doing good on this part. But, I can't take all credit. I want to say thank you to all of my followers and being loyal to me. Thank you.

I also watched a movie but I have already seen before so I'm not able to add it to my list. Alright. That is all for now. I'm sorry there weren't any pictures. Hopefully I will be able to add some more updates tomorrow, and hopefully will pictures. See y'all soon! ♥

One More Down!

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

Here's what I've accomplished in the last three days..♥

061. Watch 26 movies starting with each letter of the alphabet [13/26]: I watched G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Kit Kittredge: An American Girl. Both are good movies.

070. Watch a movie from the year I was born (1989): Yesterday I watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I didn't really like it, but I watched it because it was from the year I was born. Well, that's one more down. Yay!

I guess I've been on a movie spree :]
Hopefully I will accomplished some more this weekend. See y'all later!

To-Do List Accomplished

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

..Well, most of it anyway. Today I woke up at 8am. Went to my dentist appointment at 9am. My appointment sucked. The lady kept putting that sucking thing so far down my throat I felt like I was going to choke on it. Ugh. She does not have good customer service. She was the assistant, and I have a lot of complaints. Anyways, at 10am, I went to the bookstore and picked up my book that I had on hold for me. Then, I went to the post office and dropped off my postcards. As for my list, this is what I did today:

001. I read two chapters of my book. I plan to read a couple more chapters tonight before I go to sleep.
017. I drank 3 bottles of water. And I'm still sick. Ugh..need more cough medicine.
028. I woke up at 8am for my dentist appointment.
034. Mailed my postcards today, which brings my total to 45 sent postcards.
035. I donated 2060 grains of rice. Woohoo! Much more than my goal for today.
061. I watched The Promotion. For have two famous lead characters, it didn't seem that a great movie. It was good, but not great. I still liked it though.
063. I watched Disc 3 of season 5 of Charmed.

I haven't read up on my U.S. history, but that's ok. I pretty much was able to cover everything else. I feel accomplished. Well, that's all for tonight. Good night everyone.

Things to do: Wednesday

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

I thought I should post a list of things I should do today. Well, that is, things that involve my list. I will post my updates on them later on, but for now, here is my list..♥

001. Read a few chapters of my latest book
012. Read a book on U.S. history
017. Drink 3 bottles of water (especially because I'm still sick)
028. Wake up before 10am (which means..I should get to bed now)
034. Mail two postcards to make my total sent at [45/50]
035. Donate at least 200 grains of rice
061. Watch a movie (most likely going to be G.I. Joe)
063. Watch a couple of episodes of Charmed (I'm in the middle of season 5 now!)

Not really too much to do.. because some don't take that long to complete.. like waking up, mailing postcards, and donating rice. So, I think it'll be a good to-do list. Hopefully I remember to work on this list. Other things I need to do today, that may or may not be related to my list:

Go to dentist appointment
Go to post office (like I said earlier)
Gather friends' addresses
Pick up book from used bookstore
Update list of playing cards and DVDs (for blog and inventory)

That's all..♥ See y'all later! ♥

New Layout (again ♥)

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

Hi everyone! I have a new layout with different colors (again!). I was kind of getting tired of the last layout, so I changed it. I've been sick for the past week, so I haven't been in the mood to update (like usual, I'm sorry!), but I have a dentist appointment early in the morning tomorrow and I will most likely be wide awake afterwards. I plan on updating my blog and hopefully complete some tasks as well..(hopefully). So tell me, how do you like the new layout? Have a great night.

October Update

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

Hi again. I'm sorry, I have not done much progress with this challenge. I have some updates for you today, though. I have really been swamped with school lately, and next quarter I will be able to graduate. Yay!

021. Take multi-vitamins everyday for a month [30/30] 10/14/09
COMPLETED! This was a boring, but healthy goal. As of today, I have taken vitamins everyday since I started this challenge.
034. Send 50 postcards via [40/50]
I am almost done with this one! I only have a few more the send out, which I should be able to finish my the end of November, if not sooner.
080. Earn $100 from Adgitize in one year [$13.37/$100]
I earned my first payment today! I am so happy! :] I guess you really can earn money from blogging.
083. Buy a new digital camera 10/10/09
COMPLETED! I love my new camera. Check out my full post for more details.

I have some other updates as well, but they aren't really update worthy, so you can check out my master list, here, to check out my overall progress.

Overall, I think it was an okay month. Kinda slow, but I did get 2 goals completed. Hopefully November will be a better month. I hope to get some more travel within this month also. I plan to travel to Forks, Washington! The home of Twilight! :] I only live about 3-4 hours away. While I'm up there, hopefully I can visit Victoria, B.C. also. Wish me luck. And see you next time!
