101 in 1001

      After reading an entry from The Levo League called, What’s On Your To-Do List for the Next Three Years? and 101 Things in 1001 Days from Scarlet Words from I decided to do the same:

I am keeping a list of 101 things I’d like to accomplish in the next 1001 days. Although this took four days to compile (I even had to eliminate some!), in my opinion, 1001 days (2.75 years) is a good compromise between making a to-do list and keeping a bucket list. It’s a way to dream big and make regular progress toward meeting those longer term goals compared to those New Year’s Resolutions that I make every year (and never completely fulfill) and keep track of the short-term goals that I want to fulfill by the time I graduate in May. I used a website called Convert Units to calculate the date, which will actually be the day before my 25th birthday. So, if everything goes according to plan, I should be feeling pretty accomplished by the time I turn a quarter of a century. Here goes nothing and let the journey begin!
