      Do share if you decide to make a list too. I try though to not put pressure on myself if I don’t get some of them done. It’s just a way to do things if I can… πŸ™‚

    #20 – good luck. if you are like me and keep buying books even though there are unread ones lying on shelf, then you’ll never get done πŸ˜›

    • Reply Psych Babbler January 19, 2014 at 8:29 AM

      Haha…thanks T! At first I was thinking of wording it as not buying a book till I finish the ones on the shelf…but doubt I could last that long! I am however going to count my unread books and write down the number here so that I am aware of my target than just have it pretty random! πŸ˜›

    Agree with Titaxy. I am sure I wont be able to complete #20 ever. Loved your health and fitness section the most.

    So much better than a (groan) “bucket list”. I can’t even believe I typed that phrase, I detest it so much! Great, great idea 35 by 35!! And all of them are very well thought out, besides. Sounds like you’re going to have a lot of fun!

    Wow! That’s quite a list. My kids are performing in a show this week and right now I’m struggling with all costume items, black/white socks, flesh coloured undies x 2 and meal times. The idea of hibernating really appeals at the moment.
    That said, a bit of goal setting wouldn’t go astray.
    Hope you’re having a good week.
