101 in 1001 -- Complete!

I saw this on Jen's Go Green blog and it caught my attention. The idea is to pick 101 things you want to accomplish in 1001 days (2.75 years... aka June of 2011). They have to be attainable and easy to track.

Well, to be honest, I tried making that list and I had trouble getting 101 things! So, I'm going to start off with 81 things, and if I can come up with more things, then I'll add them along the way. (I'm going to keep calling this 101 in 1001 though, since that's the original game.) Anyway, I'm not saying that I'll actually keep this up for 2 years, but I think its a neat idea, so I'll definitely try!

Things in green are the items that are in progress.
Things in blue are completed items.
Things in purple are going to be completed, but after the June 2011 time frame.
Things in orange are just not going to happen anytime soon!!
