101 in 1001

101 in 1001 was created by the Day Zero Project. The idea is to accomplish 101 goals in 1001 days. I did my first list (which is posted below back in 2009). 1001 days seems less intimidating than completing a New's Resolution and I liked the idea of posting the list for everyone to see so I have someone to be accountable to - that's you. Do you have your own 101 in 1001 list? 

The second 101 in 1001 list:
Beginning date: February 29, 2012
Completion Date: November 14, 2015
