Everything Happens For a Reason: Seriously?! It's Been 1001 Days!

14 January 2013

Seriously?! It's Been 1001 Days!

The time has come after 2.75 years, where my Day Zero Project (101 in 1001) has come to an end. I'll be honest, when I first started this project in 2010, I had a hard time coming up with 101 goals. For a few months, I didn't even have 101 goals. Also, I didn't really do too well with my goals, but I'm not going to fret! Tomorrow, I'll be sharing my list with even loftier goals that will start on January 15, 2013 and will end on October 13, 2015.

If you haven't did a project like this... you should!
