one year update: 101 in 1001 goals


Back in September for my six month update, I had achieved 35 out of the 101 goals and today, I’m at 40. I haven’t made a ton of progress on checking things off it may seem, but that’s because a lot of these are longer term goals (like reading 150 books) or have a set date in the future. A lot of new things will be crossed off this May, so I think by my 18 month update in September, I’ll have a lot more finished.

One thing to note is that I have changed a few items on this list that were New York specific because I no longer live there, so it’s not really as feasible to get done. Okay! Here are the things I’ve checked off since last September:

  • Learn and wear an elaborate braided hairstyle

  • Take three different fitness classes

  • Fill out the monthly reflection pages in my Passion Planner for a year

  • Meet or connect with three bloggers I admire

  • Redesign some elements of the blog
