101 in 1001

In early 2011, I started my first 101 things in 1001 days managing it with the help of Day Zero Project. Looking back, it was a way for me to start living live again after my father-in-law’s death.  To get us all living again really.  I did some very cool things by myself, conquered a few fears, and had some adventures with Joe and Taelin.  I didn’t get all 101 things done but I had a great time getting done what I did!

I have decided to create a new list that I am excited about starting.  With a start date of May 12, 2016, I have until February 7, 2019. I don’t know if I will get it all completed but I will have fun trying.  If it is a goal in progress, I will italicize it. When I complete something, I will bold it!
