101 things in 1001 days

As promised, I worked on my list of 101 things in 1001 days. It's a combination of a to do list and bucket list with more of a finite time frame (hey, you can't live forever, and I want to make sure I'm getting the things I most want to do accomplished).

I'm interested to see how it goes; if I like it, I'd consider keeping it up and just updating the specifics. As per #1 (you'll see in a second), let me know if it inspires you to make a list too. And, I encourage you to keep me accountable. I keep a printed list in my Erin Condren planner to make sure I can keep track.

Here goes nothin':
