101 Goals in 1001 Days

Happy November, all!  Its time!  I've done this before and I was not successful.  In fact, I was far from successful.  I gave up and didn't push forward like I should have.  But, I'm at it again and this time, I'm going at it for the long haul!  This is the debut of my new 101 Goals in 1001 Days!  Why try again?  Many people have a Bucket List or a list of goals they want to accomplish before they die.  I've got one of those also, but so many of them are unreachable right now.  So I want a list of goals that attainable at the current phase in my life.  This is my list of 101 things I want to accomplish within the next 1001 days.  Attainable goals within a reachable number of days.  1001 days sounds like a lot, but I'm sure it will go by so fast in regards to my goals!

My Start Date: November 1, 2012
My Finish Date: July 30, 2015

Wow, 2015 really does seem so far off!  That means I've got plenty of time to reach my goals!  Also, a lot of these goals are ones that I cannot complete on my own.  If you are able to assist me in any way to complete a goal or two, please let me know!!

And with this posting, I've officially marked off my first goal!  One down, one hundred to go!!
