101 Things

So I'm going to break down and work on a 101 things to do in 1001 days.  I've had a few friends start this and I had also sort of started one about a year ago, but I haven't followed through.  It is so easy to think about the things we want to accomplish in 1-year or 5-years, but its a totally different thing to actually write it all down and do it all.  So here is my list.  I'll try to remember to check in monthly on how I'm doing.  Hope this inspires some of you to do the same thing.

This list is good from Aug 12, 2010 to May 9, 2013
