101 in 1001

Disclaimer: this is not my first 101 in 1001 rodeo.  I recently “completed” my first 101 in 1001 list on December 31, 2010.  When I wrote that first list, it seemed like 1001 days would always be far off into the future, that I would always have plenty of time to do everything my heart desired.  In reality, TIME FREAKING FLIES DUDE.  December 31, 2010 rolled around and I had a mere 16 things scratched off my list.

But instead of feeling all sad and shameful, I just made doing a little bit better the first thing on my next list.  How AWESOME and self-accepting is THAT!
