Wow....too long. Dang midterms.
Anyways! Updates!

4. run 5/7 days, 4 weeks in a row (0/4)
>>> Started. I've gone running 2 times this week and plan to again this afternoon. Though a funny thing I should make note of is that I count day one of my "weeks" on Monday. That doesn't really mean much to you, but it kinda gives me Sunday as a "make-up" day. Also, I need a new sports bra >_>

9. donate to Locks of Love twice (0/2)
>>>It has been decided! Before Japan, but possibly during faire because I leave the NEXT day after faire ends. CRAZY! :D

11. Complete the Credential Application (1/1)
-completed March 1, 2010

16. go to 15 live shows (3/15)
>Sweeney Todd
>Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead
>the tranny show that I can't remember what the name is >_> I should ask Sarah
>>>also, I'm no longer counting showcases (aka those free mini-shows put on by students every Thursday night that are quite literally underground) like the last two because Sarah is awesome and I go to them because she is involved, but alas, I want to go to real live shows :D

>>>eh's going

>*Grosse Point Blank---enjoyed it. Fun. Shooting also.
>Pregnancy Pact---ok. Not great. Meh
>Princess and the Frog---cute. Needs better quality vid streamer >_<

**changed to Swap-bot due to inactivity of Gimme Your Stuff****Only International swaps will be counted for this challenge**
>>>I'm still trying to GET an international swap >_> on package swap #2 and still only US people....but surprisingly, people still aren't sending me stuff. Apparently my post office is very efficient about getting stuff out, just not in...

41. meet a MIG (0/1)
>>> In order to meet a MIG, I should probably get back in touch with them >_> oops

45. Keep a plant alive in my bedroom (0/1)

>>>I'm on day 3. I have a little over 60 days before I leave for my freakin' big trip of awesome :D and I want to be dedicated and finish this one before then. And, the running one...because that means I will be (hopefully) slightly less squishy when the day for me to wear a bikini for my beau this summer comes. 'Cause basically no one wants to see super-squish in a bikini.

300 reasons why you love Keith would make a great scrapbook.
You should put this kind of follow button on your other blog. It would make it easier for people to follow. Beautiful background. I'm now following from Ukraine. God bless. Swap-bot

You are further ahead than I am. I still have a lot to accomplish before my 1001 days are done and I'm already into my second year.
