101 in 1001....

So, I came across this idea on the internet the other day and to say it started my little mind to swirling is an understatement. The purpose of it is to list 101 things you'd like to complete in 1001 days. Will I complete them all? Who knows. Would I like too? Most certainly! I thought it would take me days to list my 101 things, but it didn't. It took me all of about 35 minutes to be exact. Here is my list. As I complete them I'll add stars beside the goal so that if you are interested in seeing how far I get, you'll be able to see. :) I created my list on October 15, 2008. 1001 days from now will be July 13, 2011...wow! That seems forever away but it'll be here before I know it. I hope to star a lot of these, wish me luck!
