101 things to do in 1001 days.

A couple of years ago, I saw on a blog- where they did this list-- 101 things to do in 1001 days.
thought it was a neat idea...
and really is, nice to see some of the things that you have accomplished.
So I decided to go ahead and start one... so...
November 17th 2009 I sat down and wrote out 101 things that I would like to do within the next 1001 days (almost 3 years)-- amazing how much can change ... I have had to make a couple of revisions to the list, (because I knew that I would NOT be able to accomplish some of the things... like i said, 'life changes...-you can see that link here, of that first post.
So this is all suppsosed to be 'done' in 17 days. on August 16th.
Some of it I think can be attainable.
some of it, not so much. and I know the photography stuff I will not be doing.I'll be busy trying to complete them, we'll see how much i get done :)
