7 Days To My 50th Birthday

. at . 6 comments

50 sounds old. Seems like I should be “farther” along than I am. When I talk with people about my life, even those I haven’t talked to in awhile, I see that my life is a series of “same old same old.” I don’t want that anymore. So in an attempt to live more consciously and maybe even outrageously, I’ve written up a a list of 51 things to do in 365 days. In other words, the things I hope to accomplish this 50th “birthday” year.

The list is broken down into 8 alphabetized categories. The items in each list are not in order of priority.
Category One is Educational.

  1. Complete 1/4th consecration requirements
  2. Vote intelligently
  3. Read 2 books for fun
  4. Write 1 article series for my blog
  5. Figure out what’s wrong w/ my camera
  6. Learn to do one new thing on my blog
  7. Practice typing 6 x’s mo
  8. Listen to/do Spanish 6 x’s mo
  9. Finish courses for masters

What are your educational goals for this year?

    My best friend turned 50 last summer and we took her on a trip to Yosemite National Park. I think you and your Sista should do a girl thing! :o) (It doesn’t have to be on the exact day)

    Is your camera something that your sister or Tim or I could help you figure out?

    I keep forgetting to write and ask you if you got that paper done, the one you were putting off?! :o) It must be aobut end of term this week or next. I can’t wait to see the rest of your list (if you’re sharing it all).

    It’s your birthday week! Whoo hoo!!! Have a spectacular day! I’ll miss the birthday lunch cuz I’m going to Effie Yeaw Nature Center with a bunch of 3rd graders!

    I’m not sure why the camera works intermittently. Maybe you’ll have better luck diagnosing the problem. . . .

    Yes, I got that paper done. It was on Satan. I did post some of it here, but since I copied it from my WORD program the formatting was off and so I deleted it. Thanks for asking.

    I’ve got 4 more finals to do. Yes, it is finals time.

    If I take classes this next time around, they’ll start April 2.

    A girl thing sounds like a lot of fun. It has been decades since I’ve been to Yosemite too. Once I’m done with school, I hope to do some CA sight seeing.

    As you might have guessed, I’ll be sharing my 51 things.

    I’ll miss you at the lunch. We’ll be celebrating my sista’s bd too.

    I googled Effie Yeaw Nature Center yesterday because I wanted to check out their nature walks. Have fun!

    Yay! Happy almost birthday! (And 50 is not old. I’ve heard that 50 is the new 40 – so there.)

    I love the List thing. A fungirl we know did teh same thing her 40×40 list – which included jumping out of an airplane!!!

    Here is a random ecucational goal for ya: I know nothing about Canada, and I’d like to learn a bit about it. So once I’m done with my crazy spring – I’m going to spend “summer school” learning about Canada. One of my hopes is to take a field trip to Prince Edward Island (with the parachuting fungirl) this summer. 😀

    Oh my, I’d love to go to PEI. Several summers ago I looked at info about going there. It looked so fun.

    Canadai is afun sublect. I graduated from from Peter Pond High school in Ft McMurray, Alberta. I think the name of the town and school are now changed.

    Great summer goal for summer school. Probably nerdy, but I likes summer shcool.
