101/1001 project

Welcome to my new blog! I have been wanting to start a blog for awhile now. But I never knew what I should write in my blog if I had one. But now I've finally found some inspiration. I found out about this from another person in the internet world who was also doing the 101/1001 project. The project is called Day Zero.

The idea is I had to come up with 101 things that I would like to accomplish in 1001 days which is by Feb 10, 2013. I think the hardest thing so far with this list was coming up with 101 things to do. It took me about 6 days to figure out all 101 things I want to do. I thought it would be easy, but then I started to run out of ideas. Looking at other people's lists really helped with my inspiration. So Now I can finally start this blog because as of today I have officially finished my 101 list!

I have a couple of people such as my husband and mother, who don't think I will complete this list, because they know me very well. I am one of those people that start something but never finishes it. But their pessimism is motivation for me to prove them wrong! I really would love to do everything on this list and I am going to, and if I do, I'm totally throwing a party for myself. So the two big reasons I am doing this list is to A) Prove some people wrong that I CAN in fact follow things through, and B) So I can have more meaning and purpose with my life. I only have one life, why sit around everyday work, make dinner and then waste time on Facebook. Because that is what my life consists of right now. Which is pretty BORING, and not only that wasting important time I have in my life to live and have meaning! So yes, I want to do this list, so you will get to hear my stories of how I will make completing this list possible.

I can cross off start a blog on my list now! Which is the first thing I can take off the list. If the item is has a line through it, that means I have completed.

  1. I figured I'd follow you in your journey. I don't know if you had as hard of a time coming up with these things as I did - it was so much more difficult to find things that were reasonable to do and weren't dependent upon large amounts of money. Good luck!!

  2. Yes I did have a hard time coming up with the list! And funny thing is now I'm thinking of all these things I could have added to the list after the fact. But I know what you mean it is hard coming up with things without spending a lot of money.
