OMG FINISHED: 101 Things in 1001 Days

It took me three days and lots of poring over other people's lists to finish my own list of 101 things I'd like to accomplish in 1001 days. I split them up into categories, but I'm not 100% happy with the splitting...I might go back and change the organization of it all.

I'm not starting my 1001 days until I'm moved into a new apartment, because part of the reason I want to do that is I don't feel like I'm cabaple of enough personal improvement at the house, much as I love the people there. I started 5/21/07, because there's stuff I can work on even without a fancy apartment! That makes the end date 2/15/10.

I was considering doing a massive post of listing all these things and explaining why each one is important to me, but I'll spare you that and just post the list.

Make your own count down at!

I like colors better than italics and bold and crap. Blue means "in progress", and red means "TOTALLY FINISHED WITH THAT SHIT".
