I don't quite have 101 goals, and I also didn't share all of them. But here is a good chunk. Basically, I'm bound and determined to see that 2008 is a year of changes for the better, and the more that I think about it, the more I see that it is. I want to make sure that this wave of good changes flows through the 1001 days.

that's so awesome! You have inspired me to finish my list :)

Way impressive. I know this is directly not about me but...

119 stars, baby. That's right, one to go. And it's a bitch. Frickin Luigi and his damn coins.

I love that idea! So it's 101 goals in 1001 days? I've got a couple I can help you with :)
15. explore major cities – Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC, Seattle, Denver (if you count Philly as a major city)
16. spend time in New York City (if you don't know anyone who lives here... :) )
47. visit the New England during the fall (Philly isn't technically New England and I think you have family in Boston, but if not...)
I think I'm going to steal your idea if you don't mind - crediting you of course!
