101 in 1001

I am doing it. I am actually going to take part in 101 in 1001! This challenge TERRIFIES me, but I think it is also such a brilliant idea! For those who don't know, 101 in 1001 is a challenge where you write down 101 things/tasks that you would like to complete in 1001 days, which roughly works out to 2.75 years. You can then track it through your blog and see how you are getting on with your accomplishments! I'm hoping that this will help me become a little more happier in myself and with my life, because I have some goals to look forward to. So, lets get into my list!
