List 3- My 101 Things  
Here is my third attempt at doing 101 Things to do in 1001 days. My first time I accomplished 50, the second time 67. This time... 101 (I hope)! I've got some RL friends doing it with me so the pressure is on... in a good way.

I will do my very best to cross the items off 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 * indicate I completed them during my grace period, after the deadline officially passed.

Start Date: Friday, December 7, 2012
Finish Date: Friday, September 4, 2015

You don't already volunteer more than 100 hours a year at one library?

It's a good thing you didn't allow other people to edit your list doc, because I wanted to add "update BCinDC homepage" to your list of extra things. :)
Kate of Kintailkatekintail on December 7th, 2012 05:28 pm (UTC)
Oh GOSH! Why didn't you suggest that one? How do I fit that in. Hmmmmmm...

As for the library... because I take some days off because of trips, AWP conference, etc. and sometimes the library is closed for holidays, I don't always make it to 100. I usually make it to about 90 hours a year. My first year doing it I got to 100, but I've only managed it once or maybe twice. I should also talk to the volunteer coordinators about submitting the list for the award; they do it some years and not others. I also want to keep track of my lifetime hours :-)

Basically, we write down our hours in the binder, the librarians put them into the computer, and then you never find out how many hours you did. So I want to figure out how they count it (calendar year? April to April appreciation lunches? Fiscal year? I don't know).

I squeezed updating the BCinDC blog/site in there as one of my things! YAY!!!

Good luck! But aren't you already at 4000 on Markeroni?
Kate of Kintail: Defaultkatekintail on December 9th, 2012 03:02 am (UTC)
Hahaha! You are funny! I'm not even remotely close to 4000. I'm at 2713.
