101 in 1001

During my afternoon blog-hopping, I stumbled across the Day Zero Project's 101 in 1001.  I love a good list, and a good challenge (I'm so entertaining, aren't I?) so I am going to do this! The idea is that you make a list of 101 goals to accomplish in 1001 days, which is about 2.74 years, kind of like a short-term bucket list.  1001 days from today would be May 8, 2014.  So if I get this list done today, which I doubt I'll do, then my "due date" will be May 8, 2014.  We shall see! I love the sense of accomplishment you get from crossing things off a list! Even if they are little things.

Fortunately for me, there are tons of list item ideas already at Day Zero Project, so I didn’t have to think too much! I started my own list and browsed the list there and found that many of my items were already on someone’s list.  So here is my list.  Some of these things I’ve done in the past, but plan/want to do them again in the next 1001 days!
