I found ‘The Day Zero Project’ on another blog and have since been finding it everywhere. The idea is make a list of 101 things that you intend to do in the next 1001 days.  

I decided to do this because I am very close to ending a massive part of my life –the school years- and (dundundun) moving out on my own to start the rest of my life. 1001 days should take me somewhere up to half way through my second year at university, at which point I’m sure I’ll be a totally different person. I’m very curious what I’ll think of this in 2 and a half years’ time and whether I’ll actually stick to it

Also, on a slightly shallower note, lots of lists have ‘go ice skating’ on them and I wanted to feel mildly smug about working in an ice rink and being able to go any time.

So here goes:

  1. It is quite hard to find 101 challenges – but you have plenty of time. I started almost a year ago and I still have a few to find.
    I think it’s good not to start with a completed list as things change and opportunities arise that you don’t always see in advance.

    Congratulations on joining us!! I wish you every success with your list. Feel free to use our badge, it’s on my ‘Take part’ page.

    You have a fantastic list. I love it!!
