The 101 List

A while back a friend of mine told me about her 101 list.  The way it works is that you make a list of 101 things you want to do in the next 1001 days.  There is also a website (dayzeroproject.com) where you can track it if you don’t have a website of your own.

In June I made my 101 list and then promptly forgot all about it.  I’ve decided to dig it out again and track it here on my blog.  Some of the ideas are a bit expensive and I highly doubt I’ll achieve them within the next 1001 days, but I’m pretty sure there is no punishment for that.

I will get as many done as I can though, and I think it will be fun!

Since June I’ve even managed to do a few of the things on my list without even realizing it.  So I will list them here as completed and then replace them on my new list that will start today.
