101 Things In 1001 Days

I am someone who enjoys pushing herself. I enjoy challenges. Probably a bit more than I should. It’s because of these that when I found out about the Day Zero Project, I decided I had to take part. In a nutshell, you come up with a list of 101 things you wish to do and give yourself 1001 days (that’s approximately 2.75 years) to complete the list. I have chosen to break my goals up into groups.
