List 4- My 101 Things  
This is my fourth 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days list. I can't believe I've been doing these since 2007! My success so far: list 1- 50 done; list 2- 67 done; list 3-86 done. So I'm shooting to beat 86. I've got friends IRL and online doing it with me and can't wait to see how we all do this time around!

I will indicate the items on this list as I accomplish them. I shall keep this journal updated as I work towards these goals, with pictures/links whenever possible. Entries in bold are ones I have completed. Entries in italics are ones in progress, which are taking a while to complete. Entries that are struck out are ones I have failed. Entries with * were completed during the grace period before my next list began.

Start Date: Thursday, October 1, 2015
Finish Date: Thursday, June 28, 2018

Great list. I know you'll blow last time around out of the water!

Some random questions about your Things:

#6: What is a poem and art postcard journal?
#20: Definitely ask Ixy for advice on this one. I've heard her say that the first one is not necessarily the best one to start with.
#31: I'm almost embarrassed to ask this, but what is Camp NaNoWriMo? Is it just regular NaNo in summer or is it a different challenge?
#88: So exciting! :D

Some answers...
#6: What is a poem and art postcard journal?
When I was in high school, I began collecting museum postcards of art pieces I loved. I put them in a notebook and then wrote out some of my favorite poems in-between the postcards (sometimes related, sometimes not). And I have never stopped collecting these things... but all the postcards sit on my shelf in a brown paper bag next to the journal they're supposed to go into. And it's been like that for about 17 years now. I think it's finally time to do something about that.

#20: Definitely ask Ixy for advice on this one. I've heard her say that the first one is not necessarily the best one to start with.
Sounds good! I do have one of them... (Going Postal I think?) on audio. I'll check with her to see if that's an okay one to read first.

#31: I'm almost embarrassed to ask this, but what is Camp NaNoWriMo? Is it just regular NaNo in summer or is it a different challenge?
It's run usually in April and July and you pick your own goal. Some people use it for editing, other people do NaNoWriMo only with a word count goal of their own choosing. From what I understand, you're placed into cabins and you can chart your cabin's process as well as your own. It's always sounded pretty cool, but I've just never done it. Seems I need a push to get me to try it. http://campnanowrimo.org/about

#88: So exciting! :D
I know, right? Kitties!!!!!!!!!!
