An Updated To-Do List Before 2022 Ends

When there was 100 days left in 2022, I made a list of 50 things I needed to get done before the end. Let’s see where we’re at.

1) Hire a chimney sweep to clean our chimney and maybe sing us a song This was completed and it turns out we don’t need a chimney sweep except for maybe every 5-10 years because apparently we have a pretty good fuel-burning system; and I don’t mean my butt

2) Renew my passport so I can escape–just in case Completed but I still haven’t gotten it back yet because pigeons fly slowly

3) Call the heating company to prepare for winter so we don’t freeze to death This is done and only one of the people who work for the company tried to make me feel guilty because the work was more than expected

4) Take out the air conditioners from the windows so we don’t freeze to death We did this the moment we realized our heat might not be working

5) Learn how to use Da Vinci Resolve for video editing to make myself more useful I’m not quite a master but if Jenny looks over, I can make it look like I know what I’m doing

6) Create everything I need for my true crime-style website/YouTube channel in order to give myself even more things for future to-do lists

7) Contact a handyman about the broken deck only to find a temporary solution because I don’t want to pay the price

8) Reorganize the basement to make it less cluttered and attractive to spirits

9) Maybe reorganize the attic if reorganizing the basement doesn’t break my spirit

10) Plan my next vacation and what I’ll actually do with some time off

11) Complete a mandatory training for work because I need money I had no choice in this matter and did it one day when nothing else at work was working

12) Hit my monthly writing quotas at all of the places I write

13) Figure out a useful way to use Two Bees in a Blog

14) Start actually writing some content for my true crime-style website to give myself an idea of what to talk about in the videos I make I’ve written some stuff but it just sits on my computer with all of the blackmail I have accumulated over the years

15) Write a few scripts for Practically Humans videos to give Jenny and I an idea of what to talk about in the videos we make

16) Maybe see a doctor if time permits

17) Reorganize the kitchen the way I’ve been planning for months which involves throwing out expired foods and stocking up in case of an emergency

18) Decide what I’ll tweet from the Practically Humans Twitter page to make it more than another password to remember

19) Get rid of the ugly colored old paint in the basement

20) Sell a few things I don’t need anymore then be boring and invest the profits

21) Help Jenny get back on a better sleeping schedule

22) Go Christmas shopping

23) Plan how I’ll use the rest of my time off because last year I ended up taking unnecessary days off with nothing much to do with them

24) Start thinking about next year’s expenses and any big projects we may want to complete

25) Empty out my bedroom closet a little more and maybe add a shelf in there

26) Diet better or at least diet

27) Fully prepare for winter in every which way because I clearly don’t want to freeze to death I think we’re now ready to take on the snow and White Walkers

28) Comment on more blog posts and YouTube videos where people are sharing useful information

29) Strategize my creative endeavors more and how to make the most use of my time

30) Make an appointment with a notary because I have something they need to witness me signing

31) Learn how to use Storyblocks because right now I don’t have any idea I need to add this to my resume because it sounds fancy

32) Rodent proof certain areas of the home better because we don’t need Mickey moving in

33) Clear the yard of leaves and sticks to make October and November a tiring month

34) Add Facebook Messenger back on my phone since it’s the primary way I have contact with my father I had Jenny do this for me and it took her literally 3 seconds

35) Clean out the not-so-messy car and maybe vacuum a little too

36) Finish maxing out my ROTH IRA for the year and hope the stock market doesn’t tank the next day Still hoping, no luck on that end of it

37) Make macaroni and cheese because it expires in November

38) Gain a respectable number of Twitter followers for Practically Humans

39) Gain a respectable number of YouTube subscribers for Practically Humans

40) Reach my financial earning goals at the primary places I write for income

41) Fit yoga into my schedule more regularly or at all

42) Make any money at affiliate marketing because in all of my attempts I never have stuck with it long enough

43) Create more backlinks for Practically Humans since this is apparently important

44) Take advantage of the fall weather by going outside more

45) Find a better place to keep our paper towels and toilet paper than in the hamper

46) Get an oil change for the car to prevent us from having to buy a new one anytime soon

47) Fill the carpenter bee holes in our wood fence only so the bees can come back next spring and create new ones

48) Move the wood on the side of the house somewhere else because it does nobody any good just sitting there

49) Clean up my home and work desktops of files nobody needs anymore

50) Learn the ratio of water to bleach or whatever the liquid we spray on the toilet brush is This was the first one I completed from this list and I already forget it

That’s a lot completed in a short amount of time! Some of these have been partially done. I made one of the macaroni and cheese boxes but I have another! I also found a good place for the paper towels but not the toilet paper!

I’ll take another look at this list in about three weeks to see where I’m at. 12 out of 50 fully complete ain’t bad.
