101 in 1001

While browsing the other day, I learned about the 1001 Day Project. 1001 days sounds like a long time, but using this online tool, that date from today is actually 11/28/2010. It still sounds far, but will surely be here in a flash.

By November 28, 2010:
I will be 32 years, 2 months, 13 days old
Luke and I will have been married for 3 years, 2 months, 19 days
Pargo will be 5 years, 25 days old

I thought it would be fun to take on this project. I have many things I want to do, and I think writing them down would help me accomplish them. I’ll post updates from time to time as tasks on the list become completed. Some of the things are just for fun, some are fairly necessary (#23) but all will keep me busy over the course of the next 2.75 years.

On another note, if you are interested in starting your own 101 in 1001, google "101 in 1001" and you will see there are so many personal blogs that will get you inspired. See here for some examples.

  1. Goood Gawd baby, you have lots of stuff in that pretty head of yours. Well, at least now it makes it easier for us to think of things to do. We can just pick stuff from this list of yours. =] One thing tho, I'm not too sure about #81. I'm no good with commitment, so damn this MBA crap. But for all the other stuff, we can get started on them this weekend. yup!
