Written by Jennifer Nickert

My plan for the next 1001 days is to complete 101 Tasks of my choosing.  I found hundreds of bloggers and WebPages who are following the movement and I decided to try it myself.  Some lists were fun, some funny, some thoughtful and inspirational.

Below is my list.  It is what it is.  I tried to pick things that would improve and enrich my life.  I encourage you to try this challenge.  I’m starting today Friday the 13th (yikes), 2009 and will end on Friday, August 10, 2012.  Wish me Luck!
