I already admitted earlier today I love things like this. And upon finding this I knew it was for me. My love of to-do lists was too strong. Anyway, the original link is here, it has all the explanations and such.

Here are my 101 things to do in 1001 days. I will keep an updated version here on my other non-used blog. But here is the list:

    holy cow, that is the most hardcore to-do list I have ever seen, and i have been known to create lists that include items such as “eat only vegatables” and “develop charity”, so i know about seriously idealistic list-making. yours is just really really amazing.

    and what’s this about a triathlon? i thought i was getting teased over my marathon plans?

  2. Kelsey says:

    you are aware that a marathon consists of 26 miles of RUNNING. I don’t do that well. Swimming and biking are good, and suffering through a bit of running. Trust me, I will be selective in my choice. If 13-year-old Kelsey could do several, can’t 25- 26- or 27-year-old Kelsey do one? (Maybe?)

  3. Brittany says:

    i think if i had to live up to that list – i would rather die. not because of the difficulty of each item. i just felt overwhelmed reading it…and it’s not even my list! though i would like to bake a cake in the microwave too. i never thought about it until today. thanks for opening my eyes to a whole new world.

    PS – when will you guys be returning to the states? aj and i are planning a super cool wii and “wine” and cheese party. i don’t think aj realizes she’s on the planning committee for this yet… but you and aaron are invited.
