Name:Grim
Partly nomadic, living in a converted school bus. Currently living and working in Oregon. Striving, in my interactions with others and myself, to be True, Kind, and Necessary.
======================================================================================

To Know Is To Act. --Samurai Maxim

======================================================================================
"101 Things in 1001 Days is the brainchild of Michael Green, a blogger and developer from NZ. He created a list of tasks to achieve within a defined period, and the idea quickly spread around the web as a tool for helping people accomplish their goals...1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities." I have finished three lists, and I've continued to start a fourth list. The second list started on my birthday in October, 2011, and went through June 30, 2014, and the third list started July 1, 2014 and went to December 15th, 2016 (it was supposed to go until go to March 28, 2017, but I restarted my goals after a lot of changes in relationships, location, and priority shifts made some of my goals irrelevant). Both the second and third lists are posted at the bottom of my profile.

The fourth list is posted just below, and I'll be reading and editing/updating roughly weekly. References to it will likely be regular occurrences in this journal. I do not have expectations of accomplishing everything on the list - but this gives me some inspiration, motivation, and manifestation. Every time I complete three goals in a section, I'll add another goal in that section. Bold means a goal is in progress, and a strike-through means, of course, that it's completed. I'm not planning on having more than 30 goals in progress at any one time, or actively working on more then 15 (some of my goals require multiple years or the entire 1001 days to complete).

The fourth list started December 15th, 2016 and will go until September 12, 2019.
