101 Things in 1001 Days: 368 Days In

Just about a year ago, I started my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. Some of them are serious, some are silly, but all are items I want to accomplish. I was inspired by Mackenzie Horan to create it, and it will finish on October 4, 2016. That makes 2.75 years, which puts me at 25 years old. I wrote some notes about them underneath!

    I don't think my comment posted, so I'll write it again (sorry if there are duplicates!). I also have a 101 list and I started it last July- with one of the same goals- going to a Pats game! They're my absolute favorite team. I ended up going with my dad late October when they beat the bears- it was AMAZING. We had nosebleed seats (there was no one behind us!) but it was so much fun. Good luck with your list! 😀

    Great list! I definitely want to do a list like this. I am glad I am not the only one who wants to join a book club. Funny how things change, I used to think they were just for nerds but now I want to start my own. Haha! I also want to Vlog but feel like I wanna lose some weight first, at least I can sit here blogging looking like a complete wreck. 😉
