101 in 1001

I've always loved the idea of making a list and then focusing on actualizing it, which is why I have a list for everything: places I want to go, things I want to do, etc. But the 101 in 1001 really puts your goals into perspective with a strict time frame. This is ideal because my list date will end right around my 30th birthday. So completing this list will correlate with a major life milestone.

Some of these goals are easily quantifiable and others are more associated with me feeling like I've accomplished my goal. Either way, I tired to make my list ambitious....something I have to strive for. So here goes, 101 things that I want to do in the next 1001 days.
