99 Coins to Get to My Goal and a Bottle of Beer
Everybody, now! Let's sing! (To the tune of 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall)
Ninety-nine coins to get to the goal, ninety-nine coins, that's all! You earn one more, soon two-three-or-four, ninety-eight coins to get to the goal!
Yes, I have $19.01 in my bank! That is 95 percent of the $20.00 redemption minimum.
Twenty days ago, I set a goal to reach my first pay out by my birthday. Not only will I make this goal, I have a good chance at making the stretch goal of 15K coins.
I know that many get a bit discouraged because the coins seem to take forever to add up, but if you keep focused,and have some fun with it, things seem to add up more quickly.
Will you join me in another round?
Ninety-eight coins to get to the goal, nine-eight coins we'll go, We'll earn more and more, And get to the door, To award us a bottle of beer (on the wall)!

Now that did I tell you. I said you will reach this goal with no problem. And you are almost there. You can do this in your sleep.

Well, I am not sleeping yet, and it's nearly 4 a.m. LOL

Okay, you just proved my point. You said it is 4am. Well, maybe you are sleeping and don't know it yet. Nice!!!1

&AbbyG All I could think of was, "Sh**! Nobody drinks real coffee anymore! They want those grande caramel salted macchiato fartachinos w/a dash of cinnamon skinny no sugar."

&AbbyG Me, too.

You are doing very well on this. I think it's like a snowball. I tried making a giant snowball when I was in school and as it got bigger, it got harder to push but here on PP, it's as if the snowball is on a downward slope, so if you put in a bit of effort at the start, it gets easier and faster. Hopefully, soon it will run away from you and the coins will be piling up with almost no effort!

When I am in University, I get 3 or 4 cups of "filter" coffee each day. At home, I have to make do with instant. I couldn't even be bothered asking for one of those skinny things. They remind me of my grandmother's version of tea - milk and hot water with a tiny dash of colour. no point, rather drink water straight from the tap.1

ROFL I hear you, MegL ! I remember some of the oldsters who would love to drink their black coffee from clear glass coffee mugs. You could see through them with coffee in them. I remember one of the friends who was a retired Marine and used to call it "diarrhea water," and refused to drink it. (Sorry for the reference, but that's what he called it. )
CoralLevang wrote on July 20, 2015, 8:49 AM
Thanks, MegL ! I agree. I'm not looking forward to going back to zero, which is why I want to get it to 15K first. I hope I don't have to redeem the whole thing at once like we had to on the B site.

I like eating what is referred to as "sludge". It used to be peanut butter mixed with protein powder and a bit of water. Now it's almond butter but my granddaughter looks at the colour and thinks pretty much what your retired Marine friend said!
MegL wrote on July 20, 2015, 8:52 AM
I would think (perhaps bestwriter could let us know here) that even if you have to redeem the whole lot, that it would not be long in piling up again, a lot faster than if you were starting with a new account.
bestwriter wrote on July 20, 2015, 9:55 AM
There were a few coins in the bank left when I had redeemed.
bestwriter wrote on July 20, 2015, 9:56 AM
What a nice piece of news you gave me. But you should keep a few coins and then redeem your 20 dollars.

That is great, I knew you would make it!

I am not going to redeem until I get to my birthday. I am hoping to have about 1700 coins more than the $20.
CoralLevang wrote on July 20, 2015, 11:51 AM
wolfgirl569 Thanks. I have a workshop this week, so will have to back off this week again, but then I should be off until the end of August.

At the rate your going, you'll hit 13,334 coins before the end of July with plenty of time to reach your stretch goal.
CoralLevang wrote on July 20, 2015, 2:53 PM
It all depends on what I can do these next few days when I am working. I am on target to reach the 13,334 by the 26th. We'll have to see re: the 15K.

Congratulations! Indeed, let us drink to that!

I'm not really a beer drinker, but it made for a good post. LOL

Congratulations on getting this far! On Persona Paper, you redeem for $20 at a time. Whatever is left over will stay in your bank, and you won't see the tally drop until your request is reviewed and granted
