101 in 1001

A couple days ago, I ran across one of my sorority sister's list of goals. It was called 101 in 1001. The premise behind it is to create 101 measurable goals to complete in 1001 days.

Instead of creating a handful of new year's resolutions that I will probably break within a month or two, I thought this was the better way to go. According to one website, 1001 days is a more realistic time period to finish all these goals "because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks". Works for me!

So...I did some calculating. I will need to come up with my list of 101 things by the end of February. Day 1 will be March 1, 2007 and day 1001 will be the day before Thanksgiving - November 25, 2009. If all goes well, I'll have a lot to be thankful for on that turkey day.

To start it off, here's a list of 5 things...some of which I have blogged about in the past...

1. Visit all 50 of the United States
2. Complete a novel for NaNoWriMo
3. Be a spectator at the 2008 Olympics
4. Go to a USC away game each football season
5. Read through the entire Bible

This should be interesting... Anyone care to join me and create a list of their own?

Well, I've done one of those. Ironically (given that you're the church-going one and I'm the completely non-religious one), it's number five.

Trust me, you're probably not missing much. The back half of the Pentateuch is brutal. Though, I do know what to do with any dead bodies I find on road between towns now....
