101 Things in 1001 Days.

So here is my list! My list was officially started on February 27, 2008 elsewhere- so it’s 1001 from then, not from posting it here.

Notice, however, that there are still blank spots on my list. The reason for this is because I was in a hurry to have a “completed” list and some of the things that were on here were poor choices- examples: things I know I could in no way do in that amount of time, things that were too general, and so forth. So I’ve deleted those and am in the process of trying to pick better things to put on in their place. On occasion I do pop in and update some of the items, like the more general ones that need details added (like “blog 3x per week for 1 month” etc.) so you may notice those changes.
