101 In 1001

Back in January, I started my list of 101 things I hope to accomplish in 1001 days. I got the idea from my "sis-in-law". Since at the time, I didn't have this blog, I've just been keep track of it on a personal level. But now the the blog is active (and a lot of items have to do with scrapbooking) I've decided to to post it on here. This will also encourage me to keep at it. I'll be posting some updates in the next couple of days for the items I've completed/am currently working on.
Here's how it works:

The Challenge:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on your part).

Start Date: 1/1/2010
End Date: 9/28/2012

Items that have been completed will be striked through and followed by the date completed.
