101 in 1001

Lists are cool.
Goals are even cooler.

So when I discovered 101 in 1001 I realized I had to join in the fun.  My friend Melissa shared her list here and that’s what initially sparked my interest.  I’m the queen of setting goals for myself, but when I write them in my notebooks, the only person holding me accountable is, well, me.  And sometimes I get distracted by shiny objects and forget things.  But my goal now is to change all of that.  See, there’s already a goal! There is so much I want to learn.  So much I’m dying to do.  Putting this list out there online is dangerous because now I may actually be forced to complete these tasks.

Unfortunately, I haven’t even completed the list.  I know, that should have been the bare minimum here, but yet, it’s not done.  Feel free to point fingers and laugh at me as I make a 3 year attempt to complete 101 tasks.  Now, if I can come up with the remaining goals I’ll be all set.

So here we go. My 101 in 1001.
