101 Things. 1001 Days. Ready, go…

Months and months ago, I came across a list of 101 things that someone planned to do in the next 1001 days. I got really excited about the idea, made my own list, then promptly forgot all about it.

I came across the list yesterday when wading through the massive piles of paper engulfing my living room. Interestingly enough, I realized that I had, without realizing it, already completed nine or ten things on the list.

It seems that there’s about a six month lag time on many of my ideas. I’ll get really excited, buy all the necessary materials, and then nothing will happen. One day, I’ll wake up at 3 am, and for no reason at all, that will be the day when I do . Sometimes I get frustrated, because it feels like I never complete what I start. But that’s actually not true–it just takes me a while.

So I’ve decided to resurrect the project. Even if I don’t consciously concentrate on it every day, I have a feeling that I’ll make headway. I’m mildly fudging the start date, since some of these things are done. Oh well.

Deadline for completion: January 26, 2013.
