101 in 1001

Basically completely stolen from Lee’s blog, the idea is that 101 tasks should be completed in 1001 days, or ~2.75 years. The goals don’t have to be impossible (they have to be doable), but they do need to be completed. Lee had a great idea, which I will also jip, and for every task undone, I will donate $5 to charity. Tasks I have yet to do are in bold. The list begins henceforth.

Once again, kudos to Lee for the idea. My 101 in 1001 begins on the 10th of December, 2007, and will conclude on the 28th of September, 2010. Wish me luck.
