Day Zero Project

In my quest to improve myself, I have decided to participate in the Day Zero Project.  I was toying with the idea of keeping a separate blog to record my progress, but my awesome co-pilot Steph thought trying to keep up with three different blogs might be a little much for me.  Is she a wise woman or what?  I decided to listen to her and not start a separate blog.  I may, however, refer to my list from time to time, so here is my complete list of 101 tasks to complete in 1001 days:
