undone things

Originally titled 100 things to do in 2013 … 2014 … 20….ahhh screw it, this page originally had a list of 100 things to do in 2013 that I posted in January to do over that year. As you can see from the title, the things didn’t all get done and carried over into 2014, 2015 and now 2016. And probably 2017 as well.
