If you have followed my January 2013 challenge intently, you will have spotted that the spreadsheet used to track my goal came to an abrupt halt on the 10th January. You probably can guess why.
January Challenge: Dry-ish-athlon – Failed
Yes, I failed. I can’t remember exactly what happened on the 10th, but I buckled. The final nail in the coffin was ironically on a date to the cinema, to see The Hobbit. So I’m not one to hold a grudge and point fingers, but I’m blaming Martin Freeman. The mop headed demon to sobriety that he is.
As promised, I’d have a forfeit if I failed, and that is quite simply that I’m doubling the donation to John Boy to a tenner, as he has succeeded (well as of two days ago). You can donate to him here.
February Challenge: Declutter
Behold my life. It’s a mess. The image at the top are my shelves of everything I’ve obtained in the two and a bit years living in Manchester. My desk is much worse, as you can see here:-
So yeah, my desk is as cluttered as my mind, and like my mind, the desk is full of half finished ideas. Take for example the Pringles Tube. My plan is to put dried spaghetti into it (I love jars for sundries, I hate plastic bags), I’ve still not done so. It’s a Christmas Pringle Tube, for fuck’s sake.
So anyway, by March the 1st my desk and my shelves will be a bit more decluttered. To measure it, I’ll sell at least the following:-
- 5 Books or Video Games
- 1 Websites or Web Domains
Also have a less cluttered desk and wardrobe (yeah, that’s a mess too).
The forfeit is simple. If I don’t sell them, I’ll just give some stuff away. This will be probably either through this blog or in a charity bag.
I’m not sure of a reward, but it will probably be I’ll do something nice with the money raised.
