Ok, while using my favorite browsing tool, stumbleupon, and I found this concept called 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days.

So, in lieu of an official New Years resolution for 2008 (because I find them kindof cheesy and no one ever sticks to them), I give you my own list of 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days. That means my things can be big or small, and I have almost 3 years to complete my mission.
