101 things in 1001 days

My list of 101 things in 1001 days. Officially started 1/1/07, and due 9/28/09. It’s currently in random loosely organized order, and I’m not positive about all of the items. It was harder than I imagined to come up with this whole list, and I’m not sure I can pull off all this stuff in just 1001 days. I might revise some of the lame or vague items. I’ll definately go through and reorganize the list sometime in the near future.
