six month update: 101 in 1001 goals


Back in March, I started working on my ‘101 in 1001’ list. Since then, a few of the items have changed a little bit, but it’s been really fun working on them! Having this list makes it easier to achieve little goals throughout the months. It serves as a roadmap and definitely prevents boredom. If I ever can’t think of something fun to do, I check the list and try to knock an item off of it. So, it’s been six months since I began the list which means it’s time for a check-in!

So, far I’ve crossed off 35 of the 101 items, which I think is pretty good! That’s a little over a quarter of the way through the list in only six months. Yay!
