101 In 1001


I have always been obsessed with lists and goals. Ask anyone who knows me, my notes section in my phone is filled with things I need to do and my desk is covered in post it notes with goals ranging from “pay off a credit card” to “get a new car” to everything in between. I was recently talking to a friend about how stressed out I’ve been lately because my life has been super hectic these last few months and she told me about this concept of making a list of 101 goals you want to accomplish in 1001 days. I find it extremely interesting because the things I want to accomplish at 21 are probably completely different than what I will want at 24 and I think it will be cool to look back and see what I used to want and who I used to be. Without further ado and in no particular order, here’s my list.
