101 in 1001...

Everyone seems to be doing this, and I think it's a great idea to set some goals for the future. It's also a great idea to make some of them small, so you don't feel like a loser when you can't cross something off  of your list for a while. I decided to do the 101 in 1001 challenge, and I started it back in April. That means I have until December 28th, 2014 to complete and check off everything on this list.
