101 things in 1001 days

Last Updated: 1/5/14

I've been compiling this list for a few weeks now and have finally mustered up the courage to finish and post.

I've seen various bloggers compile their lists, and felt like I should do the same. I have 1,001 days  to complete 101 (102 I can't find one to delete!) tasks or goals, basically a short term bucket list. One of the reasons why I had such a hard time posting this is because unlike my other posts, I feel like my dreams and goals are more intimate than my ramblings and experiences. I have broken this list down into categories to make my accomplishments much easier to track and frankly, to follow through!

So here we go...

  1. Great list, found you from Mackenzie's blog! I've never created a "101 in 1001" list before, but I have made an annual tradition of sharing resolution/goal lists every year since 2010. If you're serious about purchasing a DSLR camera, my Nikon D5000 is for sale! :)
