My 101 in 1001

I got this from SoJo’s blog who started this in November. I thought it was quite a nice idea, given the fact (as they said) that New Year’s resolutions often turn nuts, because they only give you 365 days and each season once to get through all your resolutions.

  1. I love your list – full of good things πŸ™‚ Getting around to wearing skirts (I do own some!) and makeup (ditto) is something I could do with… many of your others are on my ‘in progress’ radar πŸ™‚

  2. Love the idea of making this list . . . and if you finish Ulysses, I will TRY to make my way through War and Peace, which has been the bane of my existence since I was in graduate school. I could NOT get through it, and ended up having to rely on the Cliffs Notes version for my M.A. examination. How embarrassing is that!?

  3. Heihei and thanks for your comments. I’ll keep you updated on my progress…

    @ Vesper: I’ve been collecting ideas for some days and as you can see I didn’t come up with 101 things neither πŸ™‚
    @ Caroline: I read “A portrait of the artist as a young man” some time ago, but I’ve wanted to read Ulysses ever since I stumbled across the book in my childhood (I was impressed by the size of the book…)
