  2. “Sign up to be an organ donor”

    Depending on what state your drivers license is in, you might be able to do this by just checking off a box on the back of the license.

  3. Love it! A good mix of easy and hard stuff. It’s a lot though! I can barely keep up with my 30 B4 30 list. It’s so fun to mark things off though. You’re going to have a lot of fun with this!

  4. I love your list. So much is stuff I’d like to do. Maybe I should get in touch when I visit Austin and we can do something togheter!

  5. So many great things to accomplish!! I love these, maybe one of these days I’ll get around to doing one.

    • You should! Yesterday I was browsing blogs looking for 101 in 1001 lists for inspiration. Yours was one of the first I checked and I was surprised you didn’t have a list already. It’s so much fun. I think you would really enjoy it. πŸ™‚

  6. So fun! What a great list! It sounds like it’s going to be an awesome 1,001 days.

  7. Love your list!! I’m doing one too and it’s been great. I’ve already made a good bit of progress which is very rewarding. Plus it gives you an excuse to do some of the things you love!

  8. Very cool! I’ve been wanting to do one of these for awhile and I think you just inspired me to!

  10. What a great list! And, being a kidney transplant recipient, I’m all about the organ donor one πŸ™‚ it’s really so easy, either checking off a box on your license or going online to your state’s registry.

    What a great 1,001 days you’ve got planned!

  11. I love reading lists like this, I really need to work on one of my own! Good luck with your 101. πŸ™‚
