101 in 1001

This list has been inspired by the blogs of many others and life goals they have set for themselves.  Being the list maker that I am, as well as someone who wants to try and/or accomplish various things, I have decided to create such a list for myself.  Here it goes, in no particular order!

Start Date: August 13, 2011
End Date: May 10, 2014

Items to Complete: 74/101
Items Completed: 27/101

Items that have been crossed out have been completed, and any applicable blog posts will be linked.

Note: I lost my original page that contained all actual dates of completion during a glitch with Blogger in May 2012 and have had to re-create this list.  Thankfully I had the beginning list with my 101 tasks saved in a Word document and simply had to go back through to check off again the items that have been completed, inserting just the month & year of completion for those items where I do not remember the exact date.
