101 in 1001


Mackenzie Horan’s blog was one of the first blogs I “lurked” came across when I first started looking at blogs. As I viewed her blog I saw her 101 in 1001 days. I Loved it!  As I’ve stated before I am a huge fan of list. Being the list lover that I am, I thought why not take my bucket list and create a 101 in 1001. I started writing my list a while back and just never finished it. Initially I wasn’t going to post my list, but then isn’t that what blogging is for. I graduate December 18th and I think this is another great way to remind myself of the goals (and wants) I have set for myself. Now some of the things on my list may be really simple while some are pretty big for me. I would love to accomplish everything on my list; however, if I don’t it’s not the end of the world. Besides there is always round 2.
