I am steadily working through my Birthday Bucket List and I have two more accomplishments to announce!
1. I made a KIVA loan! I loaned $25 to Nory Ester via KIVA and she is using it to stock her newly bought and opened general store in Columbia! The entire KIVA organization is pretty awesome and since it’s all micro-finance and not straight charity the people work really hard to pay their loan back! In fact KIVA has a 98.9% payback rate! Check out their video to see the way a KIVA loan works! PS Nory only needs a couple more lenders to get her full loan!
2. I started a journal. Actually THREE journals! A Q&A journal that has room enough for 5 years! It asks you a question each day so you can see how your answers change over the years! Plus it makes it WAY easier for me since the biggest thing standing in my way of starting a ‘Dear Diary’ journal was the “requirement” that I had to write every day… yeah I just couldn’t do that. In addition to the Q&A journal I got a ‘Wreck this Journal’ which has turned out to be really fun because I actually do get to wreck it! The other journal you see is more of a ‘Dear Diary’ journal but without the daily writing requirement and more of the ‘Rant, Vent, or Cry through words’ journal.
Only 17 more thing to go! Oh dang that’s quite a lot…
