101 Things in 1,001 days

I found several blogs today where they are doing a 101 things in 1,001 days challenge. Kind of like a bucket list but just for the next 1,001 days. I found a website where I could see what date 1,001 days from today is and guess what? It's Halloween 2014. I think that's a pretty cool end date for my list so I'm going to start today. I may not come up with 101 things today but I will keep adding to the list and marking off as I go along. Some will be easy tasks, some will be things that are long over, and some will actually take some serious time or investments.
