101 Things in 1001 Days

Start Date: January 1, 2016
End Date: September 28th, 2018

I first saw the "101 Things in 1001 Days" on Isabella Darden's blog, Yep, It's Prep, and was inspired to create my own! I definitely got a couple of these from her list as well as Mackenzie Horan's, but they were things I would have never thought about doing!

Friday, September 28, 2018 seems like a random day, but it will be exactly 1001 days from January 1, 2016. A lot can happen in 1001 days or 2.75 years. By September 28, 2018, I will have graduated from college and be out in the real world. Yikes! Some goals are easier to complete, but this is somewhere between a to-do list and a bucket list. It's a way to challenge myself and grow as a person, all while keeping my goals and wishes in sight. I am putting this on my blog to keep me accountable, have it easily accessible to update when I complete something, and hopefully inspire some of you guys to create your own 101 Things in 1001 Days as well.
