101 in 1001

so my roommate allison and i decided this year instead of making new years resolutions to make a list of 101 things that we want to complete in 1001 days.  i am not going to be posting all 101 of the goals that i have, but i thought as i complete them, i would write a little bit about what i did and how it went. it has been pretty fun coming up with 101 things that we want to accomplish and then getting other people excited and making their own lists.  we might even start a club that would rival the UJFFCA (if you’re not sure what this is, ask griff).  my 1001 days end on SEPTEMBER 29, 2011.  this may seem like a lot of time, but 101 things is a lot!

so here are the first few that i have finished:

#37 – take engagement pictures for someone.

i took brandon and melanie’s  pictures just a few weeks ago.  it is actually a pretty funny story.  because of some delays that were out of their hands, we drove up to the beach about 5 minutes before the sun went completely under the water.  it was a very hectic time trying to get as many good pictures as we could before we lost any and all light.  but all of us were really happy with how they turned out.  here is my favorite:

#94 – get janelle (my best friend) to try out the Gilmore Girls

this one is so funny to me, because i thought that it was going to be completely impossible.  allison and i have been trying to convince janelle for AGES that the gilmore girls is a great show and that she will love it.  (amoung allison and i, we almost have 2 copies of every season of the show.  yeah, we were pretty much destined to be friends and roomies).  janelle was so so so stubborn about it and always refused to give it a shot.  and credit where credit is due, it was definitely alli who finally convinced her to give it a try.  but i was there for the occasion when we watched the pilot together.  and the best part?  of course, she LOVED it and hasn’t stopped watching since.

#96 – go to all of scott’s playoff hockey games

scott said i could count this one as done, even though i missed the last game of the season, which was his consolation round.  he said the playoffs were over for them at that point anyways.  i might have to try again next season (which starts again pretty much right away), but for now, i am counting it!  i totally learned so much about hockey, which is a sport i knew pretty much nothing about, with the exception of the flying V and singing “we are the champions” around a campfire with emilio estevez.  my favorite part of the playoffs?  the traditional playoff beard.  you just gotta love it.  🙂

#101 – learn to solve and solve a rubix cube

done!  i am super proud of this one, as everyone in my family will tell you.  lately i have been demanding them to be impressed everytime i solve it.  my mom is definitely over it, but i am so stoked everytime.  it is truly something i never thought i would do, so i seriously get excited.  don’t tell anyone, but i have beaten scott at solving it too.  bwahahah!  first the rubix cube, then the world, right?

so those are my completed goals.  there are many more in the works, most of which include some sort of time condition (ie do this for a year or that for 3 months straight).  but i will keep you posted.  and if anyone wants to join us, we are collecting lists and if we get enough peeps to join, we might start a facebook group or something.

  1. Bri,
    This is the coolest idea. I love it and just may have to join. Not too sure about sharing my list though. Those pictures you took are great! You definitely have a gift there, my dear!
