101 in 1001


I stumbled upon this awesome idea for a blog post through Her Campus, and absolutely loved it. What does 101 in 1001 actually mean? Basically, you write down 101 goals that are to be completed in 1001 days (2.75 years). It seems like a really long time when you're counting the days, but by years, it's not that much. I used to be the type of person who wrote down their goals and tried to achieve, them, but as I became more busy and flustered with life, it was hard to keep track of what I achieved and what I've forgotten.

I thought this was a great way to have a complied list of goals all in one place, where I can constantly update once I achieve something. Did I ever mention how obsessed with lists I am? If anyone were to ever go through my journals, you would literally see hundreds of pages of lists. So this is literally up my alley. I also think this is a wonderful opportunity for me to start a new blog series as well! While completing my 101 goals, I will also be blogging about the ones worth talking about. Anyways, enough jabbering, time to calculate my finish date!

Start Date: Saturday July 11, 2015
End Date: Saturday April 7, 2018

Wow! 2018 seems so far away, but 101 goals also seems impossible, but I'm sure it's doable if I put goals that are possible for me at least.

If the goal is striked out it means I've completed it, if it's bolded, it means I'm in the process of trying to complete it, and if the font is in a different colour, it means there's a link to a blog post. Hope you enjoy, and are inspired to create your own list!
