runawayskellum: Animated icon of Toph punching Aang (he does have a heart)
In my current near-panic about leaving university and becoming a real person and being frightened of either not accomplishing or somehow actually forgetting some of the tasks I need to do in order to be at least a qualified success in this, I stumbled across the Day Zero Project. It's basically a big to-do list: set 101 goals to be done in 1001 days.

At first I considered cutting it down somehow and making it graduating-specific, but then I decided just to go for it. It turns out that only 33 of my goals are actually for before finishing university, and a lot of them are nice ones designed to make me appreciate all my wonderful friends and my beautiful girlfriend and all the really cool stuff you get to do when you're at uni. It surprised me how many of them were for the immediate aftermath of, with luck, obtaining a place to stay and a way to make money. Apparently I'm quite concerned with starting Adult Life with the right foot forward. (Another concern is to stop being such a total lurker.)

So I'm going to post my list here, dated for when it's meant to run out. (This idea I stole from [personal profile] kerrypolka, who I hope doesn't mind!)

It's funny, isn't it, how writing thoughtful/extensive to-do lists feels so much like actually achieving things?
