101 in 1001

This bad boy has been on my to-do list for a solid 6 months and I finally got around to finishing it. Honestly, thinking of 101 things I want to do is really difficult. I had a few things that I knew were going on the list, around 50 things that came easily, but the other 51....not so easy.

I looked at other 101 lists because if you didn't know, this is a huge deal in the blogger world. Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling started this idea a few years ago and it has taken over the internet. 

When I graduated college, I knew I wanted to make one of these lists to keep a set of goals for the first few post graduate years. With the new year just a few days in, I knew I wanted to post it ASAP. 

Having a list of tangible goals makes me feel calmer somehow. It's something to work toward, something to aim for...it makes me feel a lot better.

You all know I've had a real difficult time these past months, leaving college and entering the real world so I feel like this list is really going to help me get out of my comfort zone and do some things I've always wanted to do.

I finished it over the weekend but started it in October so some of these have already happened but I'm SO excited to post it and share it with all of you!

I hope this list inspires you to make your own list, something to set your sights on and go get! In 2015, get out of your comfort zone and do something you've always wanted to do...no matter how small or big it is!

End date: October 4th, 2017
