The 100 Day Project


Have you heard of this before? Are you joining in for 2017?

I’ve thought long and hard about what I’m going to do for the next 100 day (<– that is SUCH a lie – I just found out about the start of this year’s yesterday. I’m such a planner.)

Anyway…. I DID think about what I could commit to for 100 days, what I would LIKE to do for 100 day in a row, and what I wouldn’t be bored or frustrated with after a week and a half.

Sometimes I have the attention span of a gnat. It’s just the truth.

My first thought was, “Oh! This is perfect! I can use this as a way to force myself to read books!”

THEN I read the rules/guidelines a bit more and learned that the premise behind the project is more to CREATE something.


So. I am going to do TWO projects. Go big or go home, right?

Project 1: I really want to learn some of this fantastic brush lettering and calligraphy that SO many talented people are so good at. For real, I could watch videos of people writing in calligraphy for hours. For the next 100 days, I will practice lettering and calligraphy. Some days this may be many things, others just a couple letters. But I will write something down. #100daysofsklettering

Project 2: My TBR (to be read) pile/shelf/bookcase is really getting out of control. Let’s look past the part where I just bought myself two new books on Sunday, mkay? Clearly, I cannot read a book each day. I would LOVE to, but there are pesky things like a job, a five-year-old, a husband, and chores that require at least a bit of my attention throughout the day. For the next 100 days, I will read (at least) one page of a BOOK THAT I ALREADY HAVE. #100daysofskTBRpile. (in a future post, I will compile a list of what this TBR pile currently looks like, so I can see progress at the end.)

Disclaimer: I am a true starter. I love starting new projects. Finishing them, however, is not my strong suit. We’ll see how this goes.

Here’s to the next 100 days.
