101 in 1001 Update

It's been another 6 months since I did an update on my 101 in 1001 list, and I've knocked a handful of more things off the list. One more year left!

Total completed // 56
Left to complete // 45

We're past the halfway point, and I've completed almost 20 since my last update, so at this rate, I should get everything done.  Well, everything except the Spanish duolingo. I don't see that happening.

My favorite that I've completed my last update is probably reading 100 books and climbing a mountain.  The books took me longer than I expected, probably because I basically stopped reading for about 4 straight months. Must remember not to do that again. Also failed at watching all the Best Picture noms for the year. Thankfully, I can try next time too. One of the issues was that I didn't even start thinking about it until nominations were announced, which means I had to see all of the movies in a relatively short time. Next go round, I'll do my best to predict nominees and start seeing them a little earlier.

I'm still loving this challenge. Some of the goals were a little lofty (looking at you, spanish duolingo), but I've pushed myself to travel more and spend my money smarter.  I'm grateful that my family will be in the Caribbean together in November, where I'm hoping to knock a few things off the list, and it's looking a trip to California might be in the cards for next March, which would be awesome. And I think I may just shut myself up in my house and attempt chocolate cake next weekend. We shall see.
