101 in 1001

17. check!
A few months ago the 101 in 1001 list was a big hit in the blogging world...well, I am a bit slow at catching on, so I am just now posting my list. I made it about a month ago and was having a hard time finishing it, so I figured I would post what I have and I will add more when it comes to my mind.

The 101 in 1001 is pretty simple, it is a list of 101 (77 for me) things that you want to accomplish in the next 1001 days. Now, of course there are many other things I would like to do in a course of 1001 days, this is just a basic list of particular things I thought of that I would like to accomplish. And of course it will probably take much longer than 1001 days, but it is just a list, to this point I've only crossed off one :) For me, it isn't really about how many I can cross off and how fast. I think it is so important to make goals for yourself and when you write them down it usually helps you to remember them better. So I know I will come up with many more, but for now this is my list of 76 items I came up with while I was bored.

*Oh, for those who aren't interested in reading them all, as you can see at the top I've crossed off: 17. buy a shootsac!, and for the photographers that know what that is, I love it!
(I totally understand those of you saying, why do you think we care what your list is, to be honest, my life is not that interesting, but I know I loved reading other people's list and I needed something to blog about, so there you have it :)

I must be a techno-tard because I thought I left a comment. But we need leaders on our GREECE TEAM at TMI this summer---it would allow you to cross several items off your list!!!!! Call me for details...I think the trip would be VERY AFFORDABLE (like free)!!!
