My 101 things in 1001 days

This idea is borrowed from a few other fellow bloggers. The goal of this list is to accomplish all of these 101 things in the next 1001 days.


So far I am having trouble coming up with a full list.  I don't know why I am stuck, but I am.  I think that maybe because I am letting this list sit in "drafts" I am not really motivated to get it finished.  My new plan is to post this list so that I can be held a little more accountable.  (plus it will help me to actually finish the list, I mean isn't it a little embarrassing to have a list of 101 things, that only has 27 things). 


So how I plan to do this is to give this list its own page on my blog so that I can easily find it, and it is easier for everyone else to look at as well.  As I complete the items I will cross them off this list here and write a blog entry about it as well.  1001 days from today is Thursday July 10, 2014.  Hopefully by then everything will be crossed off this list.  Wish me luck!
