101 Goals in 1001 Days

I thought I was never going to finish this list. I got inspired to do it a while ago [couple of weeks now] and have been trying to get to the 101 ever since. However, while doing some research looking for more inspiration [I was stuck at #54, seriously!] I found out that this is actually a project. It is called Day Zero and you can read all about it here.

Just to let you know, italics or bold don't mean anything they're just there for dramatical purposes [meaning it doesn't mean that I've finished the goal or anything]. As I finish my goals, I will however, strike them out like this, and blog about them, post pictures etc.

    @Susan, do you know any HTML??? the code is strike. I don't know which version of blogger you are using, but it's right on the top bar thingy where you write your posts, it's the icon with the letters striked out. If not, use the code, and you know open and closing tags.

  18. Amazing list, currently make one of my own, best of luck to you!
