101 in 1001

In my month off of school and working, I have a lot of time on my hands.  So I've began to read feverishly, everything.  I have read 2 of the 3 Lauren Conrad books (as many of you know I'm obsessed with her), and the 3rd should arrive in Monday's mail.  I have re-read the Princess Diaries series for the millionth time.  I have even read Blink by Malcolm Gladwell and A Separate Peace by John Knowles, so it's not just easy beach reads.  I have also taken up blog reading.  I used to read only 2 blogs everyday, and now I'm up to 11, plus 2 YouTube channels.  And that list is growing quickly, for every blog I add to my daily repertoire, I read at least 10 others to see if they make the cut.  In one of the blogs I have recently added, I came across an entry about The Day Zero Project.  You make a list of 101 things you want to do, and you have 1,001 days to do them.  I thought this was fantastic.  So I'd like to share with you my list of 101 (although I only have 88 things, so comment any suggestions you have!!)

What do you think about this challenge?  Would you ever want to do something like this?
