101 Things in 1001 Days

Have you heard of Day Zero Project? It's an online hub of goal-setters, list lovers, inspirational people, and all around awesome stuff. Instead of creating an open-ended "bucket list" or the same old New Years resolutions, people choose 101 things they want to do in 1001 days. I am constantly inspired by the achievements and adventures of others, so I decided to share my own personal list.
