101 in 1001

My life is boring. I don't have much of a story. I've been reading "A Million Miles in a Thousand Years" by Donald Miller, and it's changing my thinking. I'm hoping that it'll change the way I live too. Frequently in the book he describes situations as "inciting incentives". I need one of those, I need motivation. So I decided to write a list of 101 things to complete in 1001 days which happens to be 3 years. In the next three years I'll be between 21 and 24 and wow, those years have a lot of potential for change. So today I spent a good chunk of time writing a list. I only go the list to 78, so I'll need some help thinking of more things to do. And if anything on the list seems like something that you'd be interested in helping me with let me know.
