I have been thinking a lot lately. About my life, my direction, and everything else in between. In doing so, it has dawned on me that the last twenty years of my life have gone quick, and nothing is stopping the coming years from going by even quicker. Its time for me to soldier on through the routine parts of my life at the moment, try new things and arrive at a place of complete happiness.

I have decided to make a list of 101 things to complete in 1001 days. Some are serious personal and professional achievements I would love to meet. But most are weird and wonderful experiences I've done before, to be shared with people I love, or new experiences designed to "broaden my horizon". At the end of the 1001 days, which is roughly two years and nine months, I will look back and see what I have been able to check off my list along the way. Hopefully, I will know myself a bit better then.

Start: September 17th 2010
End: Coming soon...
