101 in 1001

So I am pretty sure most of you know what 101 in 1001 is all about, but if you don’t it is where you complete 101 items–whether they be goals, task, attitudes, or adventures–in 1001 days.

Why am I doing this??? Well I got the idea from katie — my boyfriends sister– and thought it would be a good challenge and way to allow me to have fun, as well as try things I have wanting to be getting around to anyway. I like list, I like plans, and I like structure so a 101 in 1001 challenge will help me get around to them. I am going to blog about my completion of each task and would love to read your comments and thoughts.

My 101 in 1001 adventure begins here.
