101 in 1001

I gave in and checked out The Day Zero Project because I have noticed some of my fellow bloggers making their lists. Day Zero, as my blogger friend/former classmate Adrian pointed out, is very public in terms of posting your list on their site (I did so, but don't think it will get much visibility there from people who may actually be interested in what I have chosen as goals). So, for added scrutiny, here's my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. I will strike through a task when I have completed it and hopefully, because it is also on my list, document the accomplishments as they unfold.
