My 101 in 1001 List

So several people on different blogs are doing the 101 things to do in 1001 days and it sounded really fun. I absolutely love lists and setting goals. I have right now 3 different bucket lists of different things already. I seem to think that I have too many specific things to go on my main bucket list so I create sub-bucket lists. I plan on using some of the things on those lists on this one so I kill 2 birds with one stone.

So the ones that I have completed will be in Green. Then the ones I'm actively working on will be in orange. I am starting this on Sunday December 2, 2012 and will complete everything by Sunday August 30, 2015.
