A video popped up on our Facebook about a Berkeley woman who was dedicating herself to 100 days of fitness and loving herself. During the clip she shares snippets of her progress -- at the gym, standing in front of the Bay Bridge with a smile on her face -- and tells others to give their goal a 100 days too.

Why a 100? Some research points to the fact it takes 90 days of doing something to make it a habit. So a 100 days means you're in the clear. 2400 hours. 144,000 minutes. That's all.

We get that when the (little over) three months are filled with 6 a.m. jogs through your cold, sleepy neighborhood, it can look like forever, but looking back -- it seems like October was just yesterday.

The Verge reports the project site was conceived by Karen X. Cheng, after a video of her learning to dance over the course of a year went viral.

On the Give It 100 site, there's countless videos of people in the midst of their 100 days of learning to unicycle, play the ukulele, get fit, be creative, skateboard, and more. The hashtag #Giveit100 on Instagram and Twitter bring up even more people in the throngs of their 100 days. Even if you're not inspired to finally learn how to juggle, the video progress of those on the site is great to watch.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
