Day Zero Project: 101 Things in 1001 days

Recently I came across a blog post made my Sarah on the Go! she had discovered the Day Zero Project – Day Zero is a community for people who love creating lists, setting challenges, and making positive changes in their lives. I love this idea, I think it is a great way to get things you have always wanted to do DONE. It makes life a little more fun and interesting. If you have a task on the list and the opportunity arises to be able to complete that task then you HAVE to do it, rather than procrastinate, or not do it at all. I started to compile my list on March 29, 2012 and will need to complete all the tasks below by Dec. 25, 2014. This blog post is my first completed task and the first $10.00 deposit being made into my Buddha bank.

If this has inspired you to create your own list please let me know so I can knock #52 off my list.
