Day Zero Project

So, I have been reading a lot of posts about people having lists of things to do.  Specifically, 101 things to do in 1001 days.  Thanks to Day Zero, I now have a list.

My list posted here is categorized (unlike on Day Zero), and I will mark off items as they are completed.  Each goal that has been completed has been hyper-linked with the blog post for that goal! :)
