101 in 1001 - part 2 - ended

Back on August 8, 2008 I started doing the DayZero project.
It has forever changed how I feel about "challenges" and New Year's resolutions. I love that I am given a real amount of time to DO things, accomplish things and learn things. 2.5 years to do 101 challenges...now not all of mine are challenges - some are just things I haven't done and have been putting off and others are challenges....so here we go...this starting in May thing will make for a new years one for January 1, 2014. So that's fun!

End Date: December 28, 2013
