Day Zero Status Updates (April, 2011)

Days into Project: 108
Percent Completed (Time): ~11%

Completed Issues, Thus Far:

  1. Try a type of sushi I am normally too afraid to try.
    I tried tako sushi.  It was okay.  But the point is, I’m trying very hard to branch out on types of sushi I order.  Read about my experience, here.
  2. Meet one person I’ve seen on TV, heard on the radio, or have seen on the Internet.
    I met Alexa, who writes Cleveland’s a Plum, while I was attending the Comm-Unity 2011 event.  She was charming and lovely, and fabulous to meet and talk to.  She offered to be friends of Facebook, but I’m painfully shy, and don’t want to seem like a weirdo creeper.

    Ah, a favorite internet image...

In-Limbo Issues:

  • Cook one new recipe a week.
    Um…definitely have not done that much this time around.  Saturdays are my only “time alone in the kitchen” times, and I’ve just not taken the time to do the proper research and prep for this.
  • Write a letter to myself to be opened when the 1001 days is over.
    I have not gotten around to this yet. I will put this on my to-do list for the week.

Other Issues of Note, This Month:

  • Don’t eat fast food for a month.
    I think I’ve been really good about this: I don’t really fast food anymore as a lifestyle choice, but I love me some Five Guys, and have made the trip twice this year.  By next month, this will probably be scratched off.
  • Pack my lunch for an entire month.
    Doing a decent job on this, too.  I’m working on not only trimming the fat both fiscally and physically, but I’m also trying to get in better shape.  Lately, this has meant a steady work diet of quinoa porridge for breakfast, and kale-and-quinoa-based salads for lunch.
  • Save $5,000 of “mad money”.
    This is moving in the right direction.  I’m more of a squirrel when it comes to money than a bear; by that I mean I have several piles of money, which when pooled would equal $5,000, but I don’t have a single account w/ $5,000 of spendable money in it.
  • Visit all of the exhibitions that the Cleveland Museum of Art has through the Timeline.
    I went to the museum in March with a co-worker, and we saw Kim Beom’s exhibit, and The Glory of the Painted Page.  I’m looking through the other old exhibitions, and don’t remember seeing any of them.  Kim Beom’s work was interesting, and I enjoyed interpreting it, and The Glory of the Painted Page is always something I enjoy as a lover of calligraphy.
  • Any of the items relating to books and reading.
    I’m getting a lot better about reading.  Head over to Goodreads for the (almost) latest info about all of the books that I’m reading.
