Ashley: New Year New List.

So we began 3 years ago. And I for the most part failed. I've been thinking a lot lately about my life, and the things I'd like to change about it, thing's I'd like to learn, and the things I want to work towards. So I'm starting again, but I'm changing a few things based on what I learned from this last go:

1. 1001 things is a lot of things. Even for a nearly 3-year period. It works better for me to add things as I go. So I don't end up with crazy-stupid things (like making 365 dresses), and actually fill my list with things that are meaningful, useful, and purposeful. If I can only accomplish 100 really important to me things in 1001 and one days, I'll probably be happier about that than accomplishing 1001 arbitrary things.

2. I get overwhelmed easily, really easily. So I'm biting off my list in chunks of five things at a time. At least as far as the bigger things. On my personal blog, I've made a list of five big goals for 2013, and doing five additional goals each month. The monthly goals are smaller, less vague or broad. All of these will be added to my list.

3. I've decided that each time I complete something I'm going to put some money aside. One of my goals is to start each paycheck with a savings deposit, and I'd like to add a little to that for accomplishing goals. Smaller amounts for smaller goals, larger amounts for larger goals.

As of now there are only 13 things on my list, and I'm planning to add more as I go along in the journey. I hope you all join in/follow along!

Sarah: Write a Play

During this semester, I wrote three plays, which was one of my goals, more than completing that. So, I can check it off of my list!! Yay!!

I also had that book read at a play reading, and it was great!! Everyone laughed where they were supposed to laugh and it was a great night!! We all had a great time performing in each other's plays and listening to the culmination of a great semester. Afterward, we had cookies and sat around and talked. I loved it!!

So, good challenge to myself and I had a great time completing it!!

Jessica: midnight showing of Alice in Wonderland!

18. Go to the midnight premiere of a movie

i know it's been a while since i've updated, and it's been a while since Alice in Wonderland premiered. it was so fun! my first midnight premier of any movie, ever. it was full of laughs, fro-yo, young girls dressed up in either slutty Alice/Mad Hatter outfits or pajamas, and searching for Ashley because we thought she died and/or got lost.



69. No fast-food for three months

technically i had In-n-Out once during this time, but i don't qualify them as "fast food". anyways, i had Del Taco one time once the "three months" was over, and it was yuck! i remember how much i didn't enjoy fast even though it is not on my 101 list, i will probably keep away from fast food unless it is the last thing on earth to keep me alive. or second-to-last, because i despise spam.

Sarah: Silent Weekend, A post that took forever to get out

One goal that I promised myself that I would do this year, was the goal of finally going to Silent Weekend. I had the money, I paid early, and I was so pumped for this goal!!!

Well, before we got there, we had no idea there was snow on the ground, so many of us had packed for slightly chilly nights, but there was at least 3 feet of snow on the ground!! So we were a bit cold. But we made up for it in fun!!! Here are some pictures of my adventure!!!

So this was my bed. My bunk mate and I were stuffed into a closet and the bed creaked and shrieked all night long, unless we stayed perfectly still. Plus the fact that I was squishing her....:

First, I was on the pink team. As many of you may not know, I HATE PINK. SO I wasn't too thrilled with this:

But we were the Pink Panthers, so it was O.K.:

For our teams, we had to compete, so I was in a three legged race:

And we had to shave a balloon:

Which we won:

We competed in other games too:

We also had to put on a skit, which was awesome:
(Right here I am saying, "The Money is Gone!!!")

And as I mentioned before, there was a lot of Snow!!!:

And Icicles, which I immediately turned into sword, because I am a Pirate:

I started killing people:

Then at the end of the week, we took a group picture. I got stuck behind some people, because I didn't know where to stand. Oddly enough, that happens to me a lot.:

So I loved this goal, and I loved completing it!! On to more exciting things!!!

Charissa: More Accomplishments

Seriously guys, I am on a to-do list roll. I've been accomplishing so much. Soon I will be at a dead-end b/c all the expensive things will be left undone.

Another thing I did over break, which I believe was also on Brianna Barrett's list was
*drum roll*

We went to the Falconers Inn bar downtown and sang kareoke for like, three hours.
I started out wiht "Bohemian Rhapsody" with Bri and Ash, then sang "I Got You Babe" with Bri, solo'd "Cabaret", and ended the evening with a little "Say You Love Me" with Ashley.

Charissa: Accomplishment MACHINE


Oh my gosh I haven't blogged in SO long!
I took a two week break from all things media and technology, and then I went on Spring break and was far too lazy to blog. But joy of joys I accomplished so many of goals over spring break! I'll post a few now, and a few later...I made sure to take pics of almost every accomplishment [=

To start Spring Break off right, my mom, sister, and I tried to go to Santa Monica. Mom got lost, no one would listen to me, the girl who actually lives in L.A., and thus we accidentally wound up in L.A. and accidentaly achieved goal #101

We had fun adventuring, but honestly it's quite dirty and gross.

I hated the constant smell of "cracked-out hippie" and all the near-hobo's who were waisting away their lives. But it was fun to experience I feel like a true L.A. girl haha.

Next to-done was #46

I made it with egg whites, zucchini, mushroom, cheese, spinach, chilli powder, ground pepper, and garlic powder. It was yummy, but next time I'll make a crust to go with it.
I also made a berry pie from scratch to go with it, all though that's not on my list.

Well, that's all for now. I'll post more of it soon [=
