less than a year to get shit done

i just realized that my 101 in 1001 ends in (now) a little less than a year. 10/4/14 to be exact. i have not been able to accomplish quite a few of the goals, unfortunately. technically there are about 30 goals that required a weekly/monthly/once a year commitment that i was unable to keep. i thought that was going to be the case on some, but there are definitely ones that i didn't even remotely try to accomplish. like running weekly, riding my bike to work, sunday crosswords, cooking at home, taking baths, not drinking my face off, going to bed by 3am, calling family, sending birthday cards, blah blah blah. i don't need to name all of them because that would probably just be depressing. but now i have to decide if i want to make any effort at all to do them, or just suck it up and donate my time or money because i didn't even try. i think i'd like to reevaluate things and see if i can accomplish something more reasonable in the last year. so i'm going to say that if i can do the things for this last year that i wanted to do all along, i'm going to give myself at least partial credit. as such, i guess i AM going to list all the things, but at least it'll be behind a cut:

so these are the things i need to absolutely do for this last year. it's my last chance to actually accomplish them. i need to totally be on top of groupons/living social etc. to make this as cheap as possibly.
16 take a flamenco class once a month for a year 0/12
64 get a facial once a month for a year (0/12) 0/12

now on to those other things that i will count if i can do them for the last year (unless otherwise noted):
