101 Things

If you know me, I'm quite the compulsive list maker. Between writing/losing my paper lists and the notes section in my iPhone, I have a list for everything. IKEA shopping list, potential Christmas gifts, movies to see, etc... Hence, when dear friend Hannah mentioned a blog with that featured 101 things to accomplish in 1001 days - interest peaked instantly. List + short term life goals + keeping track of fun-ness = what I'm all about! Kevin is reluctant to such things because he claims all lists are "in his head". Wellll... I'm all about keeping track of EVERYTHING! Partially because I have my mother's memory, which is nonexistent. So, the list:
