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.
