    Wow, that’s quite a list! Do you have a plan for how you will achieve these goals?

    • 2. romanalo78  |  August 17, 2009 at 9:08 am

      Well, except for the getting married part which, of course, I don’t have control over, I think I just need to constantly keep track of everything and set timelines for all my goals. Do you have your own 101 in 1001? Please do share the link. I would love to read your list.

      Thanks for checking my blog out, by the way! πŸ™‚

    I absolutely LOVE your list! It really makes me want to know more about you. We should become Facebook friends! Although I just deleted my Farm Town because I didn’t like it as much as Farmville. πŸ™‚

    • 12. romanalo78  |  August 18, 2009 at 3:07 pm

      Just approved your Facebook friendship request! We’re now Facebook friends! πŸ™‚

      I used to like Farmville better also but when I learned that I can hire people to harvest and earn more coins by providing jobs for people, I started to like Farmtown more. I also love getting hired to harvest and plow! πŸ™‚

    The old person’s home has inspired me to add something to my list… Visiting my grandpa 😑

    Even though he doesn’t remember who I am and repeatedly asks where my grandma is (passed away nearly two years ago).

    • 14. romanalo78  |  September 14, 2009 at 5:34 pm

      Hey, Joc! Thank you for your message. πŸ™‚ Blog about your visit to your grandpa, okay? Would love to read about it. Even if he doesn’t remember you, I know somehow your presence will mean a lot to him. πŸ™‚

  • 15. Joc  |  September 14, 2009 at 4:14 am

    haha, that wasn’t supposed to be an angry face! I was going for a sad face, but now I can’t edit the message. Woops 😦
