Almost exactly two years ago I created a list of 101 things to try and complete over 1001 days. That 1001 days is approximately 2.75 years, and there's only 8 months left y'all. When I first wrote it it seemed like almost three years was an eternity.... but dang if it didn't fly by! 

With my recent post on goal setting, I thought that now would be a good time to check in on my 101 in 1001 and see how things were going... I know I've crossed a lot off, but I'll be hard pressed to finish some of them in the next 8 months alone. Like visiting five new states?! 

Here's my list and progress so far! Also linking to some of the original posts I made about this venture on my personal blog! Ummmm.... can we talk about a great example of how far my lettering has come in the last two years?! Just look at that "Free Your Mind" doodle. Oof.

Sooooo.... Good News & Bad News!

The good news is I've made a lot of progress! The bad news is that I'm only 50% done with the list and I only have 25% of the total time remaining. I'm going to go back through my list over the next two days and see if anything on there no longer aligns with my needs/wants or hopes/dreams. If so, I'll edit it one last time and then.... it's do or die time! 

 

Updated the list August 8, 2017. 
55 Completed, 46 Left.
