New Years Resolutions...Not for me.

So I've tried to do the whole "New Years Resolution" thing and it just doesn't work for me.  I give up about 5 days into the year, and it usually doesn't get accomplished.  Or I do, do it and never think twice about it.

I am VERY much a list person.  I love making lists and crossing things off.  I will even add stuff to a list after I've done it, just so I can cross it off!  Lame? Maybe. But I like to do it.

So this year, I've been seen a lot of stuff about this 101 things in 1001 days, and I decided to give it a try.  I've spent the past week or so working on my list.  I didn't think that it would be that difficult to come up with 101 things, but holy crap, it isn't an easy task.  So, here is my list.  If you can help in any way, shape or form, I would love the help!  I will blog about things that I will be crossing off the list.  There are some that will be done relatively quickly and some that are long term goals.
