Day Zero Project List

I ran across the Day Zero Project on my friend Stef’s Blog. The idea is to create a list of 101 things you want to do in 1001 days. That’s a little over two and a half years to do some pretty fun things! You can choose anything you’d like. I decided on a few simple things, a couple projects I keep putting off and things that will take some serious work on my part.

When I finished my list last night, I was surprised to find only 21 things had to do with food, but they are AWESOME! As a self-proclaimed “lover of lists” here is my 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days! I am starting today, Sunday November 20, 2011.

  1. I love that you created a 101 in 1001 list – fantastic! 🙂

  2. Very cool idea. I too like the camera one. And the trip across the USA. This year I ran my first half marathon, but ironically still need to get an exercise routine. I do recommend the roller derby- it is a lot of fun to watch, though not at all like they show in the movies.

  3. This is a great list! How long did it take you to write?
