One year and a half update - 100in1001

Wow, time has gone by fast. I'm somewhere around the half-way point of my 100things and I feel like I've made good progres on many items. As I've been wanting to do for quite some time, I just went through the list and deleted or refined many of the entries. Many of these changes or purges were due to ill-defined goals, such as "doing something every week" or things like that, which just aren't realistic. So, for example, "do Pilates 3 times a week" has been changed to a more concrete (for me at least) goal of getting through the entire reformer workout.

So why have I not been making many posts over the last year or so? Well I discovered that I don't really have much to talk about on a weekly basis. Especially considering my awful fall and my recent move to an apartment, I've had many things keeping me from completing items. As I look at what's left for me to do it is quite a staggering amount of things. The Pulitzers in fiction is going to be a real bear. I have added a new item or two recently, like home-brewing a beer, but I'm still well under 100 items. Come on imagination!

The new plan is to simply post when I've accomplished something of note, however frequent or infrequent. When I finish a book or watch one of the movies, I'll post at least a mini-review. When I make it to that foreign country (looking like it will be Egypt) I'll be sure to give that a good write up. This should make the whole blogging end of this list better for me and higher quality posts.

That's all for now, stay tuned for a post soon about the Pulitzer winners I've been reading.
