101 in 1,001

If you’ve been around for a while, you may have seen my 101 in 1,001 list from the very first days of For the Sake of Good Taste. A few months before its time came to a close, I took to Twitter with a dilemma: since I’d begun the list, a lot of the items were no longer applicable to the person I’d become. By the power vested in my Twitter followers, it was decided: new me, new list.

The time period for that first list has since passed and it’s definitely time for me to create a new 101 in 1,001 list. So, here goes nothing!  Italics indicate an item that’s in progress while strike-throughs indicate a finished item.
