100 Things

Although I was raised by Virgos, the list-makers of the Zodiac, I myself am not typically a lover of lists. Grocery lists get forgotten, to-do lists disappear under the cat, wish lists get eaten by one of the dogs. And now with a toddler rampaging about the house, well, who has time for lists?

That said, there is definitely a certain value in listing goals, desires, wishes. And so, to help focus and stay focused, here is my very own 100 Things for 1000 Days.
