101 Things in 1001 days

The other day i joined up to the site Day Zero.
The 101 Things in 1001 Days project is a project in which you have 1001 days (about 3 years) to complete 101 tasks or missions of your choice. They have a have a definitive start and end/ accomplishment. They can be anything from cutting your hair to travelling around the world.

I really liked the idea as i sometimes wake up feeling a bit "meh" about life and my directions.

I don't actually have 101 things yet, i haven't chosen 101 things and i've run out of inspiration at around 70 things. i will most probably add to this list as i go though.
