I can't believe I'm 24! I'm so close to the middle of my twenties, I may as well just start having a quarter-life crisis now. (But I won't. Because my life is just too good right now. Crisis averted. For now.)

To celebrate my 24th birthday, I'm going to start a brand new 101 in 1001 list!

I'm not giving up on my old list just yet, I'll keep on with it until the end. It's just hard to know what you'll be doing three years from now. What you like/dislike now might be totally different. What you want to achieve now, might be a silly idea 3 years from now. And you'll discover things about yourself that you didn't know before. But I gave this list a lot of thought, and edited it many times. I'm hoping that this list will be a little more successful (read: applicable to my life) than the first, so without further delay, my 101 - 2nd edition.

Hey. Great post you've got here! I love the blog and I submitted it to reddit,digg and propeller. I'm not sure if you did or not already,
but I'm just trying to do my part to make sure people come and read this. I have a blog too! It's a really enjoyable experience for me. It eases
the stress out of my life as I'm sure it does for you as well. What hosting company do you use by the way? I use Hostgator.
I read a really interesting article about how Hostgator is the best company to sign up with if you want to start a blog or website. If you're looking to transfer hosts
or if anybody you know wants to start a blog i would recommend reading this article

Hostgator Web Hosting

Again, thanks for the awesome blog! =)
