178 Days so Jump on It!

I just finished reading a post saying that there are only 178 days left in 2011, and it challenges the reader to think about what their goals for the year were and basically to 

And get back to what you were going to accomplish this year.  So I thought I would take some time to think about what I was going to accomplish this year so that I can do exactly as Sir Mix-A-Lot recommends.  

The first obvious thing that I was working on this year was my 101 in 1001 and as you can see from the Update I've been fairly passionate about it and I'm doing well.  Plus I've got until September of 2013...so I've got some time.  

A Personal Manifesto is something that I started thinking about during the WordCount Blog-a-Thon.   And I was reminded of it recently thanks to Escaping Mediocrity who sent out her own manifesto that has been both inspiring and daunting in the face of writing my own.  Its something that I still want to do.  I feel like its important for me to focus on  my identity, both personal, professional, and as a blogger but so far the instructions I have on writing a manifesto have been less than helpful.  

I also wanted to write a blog series on some of the things that I have been growing such as the one I wrote about my Nasturium however, that also has not happened.  That I feel is even more important now as I begin to see my wonderful plants continue to grow and get closer and closer to harvest time.  That I'm just finding difficult because of the hit or miss internet in my apartment.  But I know what you're thinking, "NONE OF YOUR EXCUSES!"

I also have not been doing updates when I do work on things such as the 5 Things I want to DIY or on any of the goals from my 101 in 1001 (on that thread I made my first attempt at pesto last night and it worked pretty darn well!) so in the future I want to work on that more.  

I think between all of that and the fact that I write myself monthly goals I have my work cut out for me!

So what are you going to do in the next 178 days?
