life through a viewfinder

The 101

Inspired by a few friends of mine who have assembled similar lists, I have devised a list of 101 things I plan to accomplish in the next 1,001 days. I will post updates when I accomplish each of the goals, and update this page to show my progress. If you’d like to compile your own list to add to your blog, I’d suggest visiting Day Zero Project to help generate ideas.
