Day Zero Project – Update.

December 15, 2010 in 101 in 1001,about me,lists

I’ve been meaning to update my Day Zero Project list for some time now. But I’ve been putting it off. Probably because I’m no where near where I should be with my list of accomplishments.

Sadly, my last posted update was January 5th, 2010 — almost an entire year ago! Well, I’ve scratched some things off my list since then, luckily!

About the project: On Monday, July 13th, 2009, I created a list of 101 things to accomplish in 1001 days. The idea came from I have until April 19th, 2012 to complete my list!

The full list can be found here, but to sum it up, here’s what I’ve been busy getting accomplished these last 11 months:

3. Go whitewater rafting. – Done. Our River Expeditions trip on 8/20-8/22 2010

13. Visit Denver. – Done. Thanksgiving week, 2010
16. Go to a Buffalo bills game. – Done. October 11, 2009
21. Go to Dinosaur BBQ with BF. – Done. Kind of. We went, but didn’t eat. Turns out I don’t like their food anymore. So I decided not to waste the trip with BF. However, I added number 21.5 to my list!

Are you sure number 100 isnt a typo? 30 days not 3?

oosh, congrats on that one!
