Slice of Life Tuesday


Today is Slice of Life Tuesday – the weekly writing challenge hosted at “Two writing Teachers”

Last night, when I just couldn’t get to sleep, I began to think about the future and how many years til I’m 70, 80, 90.
I used to play the age game with my children – we’d all say how old we’d be in 30, 40 and 50 years. After each new age, they’d laugh and laugh.
At 40 though, thirty years til 70 was a long way off. Now it is only three years away.
It got me thinking about what I want to accomplish in three years. That made me think of the 101 in 1001. I have done this challenge once before, fairly successfully, but hadn’t done it in a while.
I began to sketch out 101 things I wanted to accomplish in just under three years (about 2.75 years.) I finished the list today and actually feel better. I know there are still many things I want to and can accomplish the next three years.
Here are a few of my idea:
9. Organize all my photos!
24. Write a memoir.
33. Volunteer for organ donation.
42. Watch whales
69. Act in a movie or play.
74. Create mosaics
101 Do as many firsts as possible!

My starting date is Fri. Feb. 15 and I finish Fri. Nov. 21, 2021

Here’s a link to the 101 in 1001 website.

What would you want to 1001 days?

  1. I turned 60 in November and am retiring at the end of the current school year, so time and age are definitely on my mind. There’s so much traveling I want to do, and I’ve worked on this the past few years. I love the idea of the 101 challenge and will definitely check that out. I started the memoir writing in November and wrote 89 pages the first two weeks. Then NCTE got in the way, among other things. I need to finish it.

    • I retired at 61 and did some writing right away – but then with my hubby’s health, I pushed so much aside. Now I need to do more for me. I hope this helps.
      All the best with your retirement. Sounds like you will have much to keep you busy

  2. Three years until I reach 70. I haven’t really thought about what I want to accomplish in that time but now your post has me thinking. I know that more traveling is up there. I like your list especially the acting in movies. Good luck on reaching your goals.

    • We’re the same age! I don’t feel it – but that big 7-0 seemed to be staring at me. So hope this helps me to get out & do more. I’d love to travel, but my hubby can’t travel far.
