Shopkeep's 101 List

Kylie1403 did it and now I am doing it.

Day Zero started a site a la Bucket List. You list what you want to do, give yourself a deadline to complete the list and hopefully check them off as you complete each task. It doesn't have to be grand or selfless. Actually, it can be quite selfish, but you have to give in as to better yourself and hopefully the world around you. Try it out. You just might find out something about yourself you haven't thought of in a while.

Here's the countdown
