Full list here

2. Monthly 101 blog update (3/33)

13. Go 7 days without Facebook

14. Take one photo of myself a month (3/33)
Yeah, I know I don't post the photos of myself but doesn't mean they haven't been taken. Maybe I will post them all at once so you can be like "omgwtfbqq, who is that?"

18. Do not smoke

24. Paint nails once a month (2/33)
NOPE. At my work I quite often have to use really sharp hunting style knives and one day late last month I managed to maim my poor little pointer finger rendering it well, quite hacked up. It has finally recovered now though.

29. Have a monthly face mask (3/33)
I hate doing face masks when my family is home because I don't want to leave the bathroom at risk of freaking them out. I know, it's stupid. Whatevs. I did my almighty Japanese mask only once this month.

61. Give up coffee
Haha, not really! I have consumed at least one coffee a day for the past 2 weeks. I started off with tea but then we ran out so lately, it's only coffee that I want. Plus buying hot tea from a cafe is such a rip.

67. Watch 10 foreign films (1/10)
I watched My Life as a Dog (Swedish) I think this was my first ever film I have seen in Swedish. It isn't my usual kind of movie that I usually like but in the end I did like it.

76. Go to the theatre.
I saw Don Quixote at the ballet! It was fun to dress up and to drink champagne and sit in the pews and try to understand the story line. I think there were too many male characters in this one for me to understand who was the main man but still lovely to watch.

81. Make 5 people mixcds (2/5)
Yes, I made my penpals in Dubai & Utah lovely mixes.

82. Find 10 new bands to love (2/10)
To really love a band you need to love more than just one of their songs right? Well, I really like all of the Temper Traps songs so they are whom I have fallen for this month. And then theres lots of other bands that I just thrash one of their songs so they don't count (yet)

92. Do 20 assignments from Learning To Love You More (4/20)
Here and here.

93. Watch all the movies mentioned in Perks of Being a Wallflower (1/11)
My Life as a Dog.

95. Listen to all the songs mentioned in Perks of Being a Wallflower

96. Read at least one novel a month (3/33)
I read Mike Gayle's Brand New Friend. I also read He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt & Liz Tuccillo and finished it in 2 days! Initially I didn't like reading what they were saying but in the end it made me realise that this douche of a boy I was seeing is not worth my time and is infact an absolute ****. I loved the movie but didn't think I would like the book but I really did and I highlighted soooooo many pages from it too. "Don't waste the pretty" ♥ I also finally read How to Breathe Underwater by Julie Orringer which wasn't the book I thought it was to begin with but I still really enjoyed the shorts stories.

101. Write a letter to myself to read at the end of the 1000 days
Done! I found this cool site called
Future Me and basically you write a letter/email and then in sends it to you.. one day, any day you like! Can you imagine getting a email in the year 2060? YIKES.
