i adore lists. in fact, almost every blog i make contains a list of some note.

i endeavor to create as many lists as i can to my own satisfaction and to cross out many applicable items. i just want them to be complete.

and hopefully, they will be

  • Alter a book completely, could already be started.

Figure out if you should do a big trip while you're living at home or in your apartment years from now. In any case, find a card where you can rack and keep miles and doesn't have a large fee attached. Probably a good way to build up credit.

  • Don't owe anyone any amount of moolah. Shittttt.
  • Take a plane somedamnwhere.
  • Achieve a flat stomach.
  • Hand boy I'm crushing real hard on a love letter of sorts with typed up transcript cuz of my gobbly gook scratch and a small but perfect for him gift. No occasion tho, just when we chill.
  • Get at LEAST buzzed and dance @ the club from 11 - 4:30ish. Minimal breaks and be sure to pregame at karaoke bar. Look at City Select for a good deal, there was a $25 for 4 mixed drinks and 4 shots and 1 hour of karaoke. Buy it and use it to shit.
  • Pay for a cheap, but high quality spa treatment. Facial, Massage, mani-pedi, anything that looks cool. Great if it's at a real spa. Bonus points if you get two tasks done.
  • Make-over bitch for cheap please :D City Select, or Groupon, or Living Social or Google Offers, or whatever. Just find a kickass deal dammit.
  • EDITT: i THINK I'LL add like hmm, 9 more goals to achieve my birth year '88. mmkay? And uhhh I need to figure out what to put in here... OKAY THOUGHT OF ONE! Learn how to play Creep on the Ukulele without too much aid of music sheets.
  • Complete the nanowrimo challenge motherfucker!_ I don't even think I broke 100 words lol. ugh.
  • Achieve 200 notes on facebook by January 1st, 2012 12:01 AM, including the livejournal imports._ haven't reached 200 as of now in April 11th lol. Such a fail.
  • Fly a kite while it's snowing, maybe lightly so you can actually see it fly high and my vision won't be blocked by all that white. Build it yourself and decorate it to your liking. winter has come and gone and dude, we actually got like very few snowfalls. Global warming yo.
  • Find a book whose main character's name is Eileen and is at least brunette, but get her as close to me as possible. Triple bonus points if it's sci-fi or fantasy.
  • Go to the (New Museum) [exhibit with the awesome slideeeee and record the overall view of it and then record your wonderful journey with your DSLR and mobile phone. But time how long it takes first before you attempt the mobile phone. Ask the gallery peeps if you should use the dslr since it could get damaged.
    • didn't do the mobile phone thing cuz it could've been smashed but oh well. wait i could've cuz i think i ended up getting a new phone like a month later lol. oh well. it was fun and the best part was doing the stripping down of thyself and floating naked in the sensory deprivation pool. soo fucking amazing and really cool cuz it was crowded in the museum hehe.
  • Do one unexpected, unplanned bucket list type of action that 22 year old eileen would never seriously consider doing. Bonus points if it barely passed through her mind before. (ergh, guess I can't use sensory deprivation pool? or maybe I can since it never occurred to me that I shouldn't? hmmm)
  • Slow dance somewhere. Find a club or concert that does slow jams. I miss it a lot. I haven’t done that in so many years, maybe middle school? The ones in college were slow grinds. Not quite the same. I wanna put my head on his shoulder. Feel his arm around my waist and not in an overly lustful way. In a sweet comforting way. And damn i wanna hear baby making tunes all nite! It'd be cool if i had a man there but it'd be so nice to dance with a stranger. *sigh*
  • Type out and recite and record audio and handwrite letter/statement of feelings for his bday or Christmas. Ask emma how to use her mic & buy an awesome usb for him. Like those mimeo ones at nycc. Use your own money man & try not to get ma's. Don’t mail it to him. Hand it to him. I don’t give a shit how long it is, say what you need to say or you may never get the coURaGE again. Maybe add a song that reminds you of him. It'll be fine.
    • 11/02/11 - I realized that it was a little pointless. I just don't matter to him as much as I thought I did and things aren't as they once, wonderfully, used to be *sigh* Maybe things will be different once x-mas hits or next year but oh well. I don't know. This is sorta depressing isn't it? Especially since this is such a huge gesture, at least for me, when saying how you feel should come a little bit easier than this... package. I think he would appreciate it yeah, but I'm not sure what I want to change with this gift. It'd be great if I could talk to him on the daily again but his life won't allow it, not even a once a fortnight or even a month deal. It's just such a downer ugh. Think of a new one, eileen:

4/11/2012 4ish am: This list is nothing but fail lol. I haven't gotten even a FOURTH of it done. Just 14 so ten short. SHOES. And I completely forgot to find a new one for number 88, the last one. UGHHH. It's also my birthyear btw hehe.

But you know what? I'll see what I can get done and I'll try to achieve it, though it's a little over two months until my birthday. But maybe I can get at least 8 more goals done, that's doable. The list is probably a bit much, but I think I could do all of this in a year, if I just proactively do some of it each day. Or at least plan it out. I know I can. And I think I'll feel better about things if I just try.

I wonder how many I can get done completely between now and my birthday? Probably a lot more than I think I could do. I want to be more productive and more creative with my time. I don't like feeling so daunted anymore. So yeah, I'll just do what I can and for next year, I'll recopy this list and remove what has been done already and put in new ones and THIS TIME, I'll put in the first 25 what I DEFINITELY want to do so I can't say that the day is a total waste.

And to be a bit fair, I started this list in august really, though a good deal of it I always had it in mind. And a procrastinator like me should've known that I wouldn't get it all done tho it probably would've if I had some sort of system in mind. Hmm.

So I'll draw up a list like a few days after my 24th birthday and then I'll figure out a way to go about it. But I think I'll do a five per day sort of deal. Not a "you have to complete five items in total" but a "you have to work on it." One must by in the top 25, one has to be one of those I have to do in piecemeal (like completing the alphabet of titles or authors, a number of poems, etc.), towards independence, creative, and one scary one. Some are bound to overlap, but I want each day to not blend in with the rest so at least in the beginning, i want to keep the goals for each day to be wayyy apart from each other compared to the next day. Feel me?

so let's see how far I come along -- 6:40 AM
