So it's been a while since I last tried this and a lot has changed in the interim. Seeing [personal profile] glinda's post last weekend prompted me to thinking that perhaps I'd like to try again and so last Saturday I started making a list and trying to figure out what things I'd want on my list this time around. Some were on previous lists, some are pie in the sky, some are re-takes of old ones amended and revised. Let's be honest even over the life of this list my priorities will change no doubt and so the reappearance of some old goals along with the trashing of some that never got done isn't that much of a surprise in making my new list.

I've been counting this week as I have begun working on things - nothing's finished yet (not even the list) but I've started a bunch and so I'm happy with that. I've still got 5 or 6 spaces to fill for things that haven't occurred to me yet. Looking back to my last list which the last record here shows in December 2014, I had finished 65 things and had 132 days left, I might have finished 1 or 2 more than that, but most of the rest would not have been finished. It's quite a target to aim to equal that this time, particularly as quite a few of my goals are going to involve multiple actions to achieve, they're not just one time deals. But I'm hopeful (ish).

Under the cut, I present you with my new 101 in 1001 list...
