101 in 1001 Update

Remember when I made that giant list of 101 things I wanted to accomplish in the next 1001 days? It’s ok, I kind of forgot about it, too… Oops! I felt like it was time to do a little update, see what I had completed so far, see where I am falling a bit behind, see what I completely forgot about… so let’s see where I’m at!

So I’m not doing too terrible, right? I’ve knocked a few things off my list and I’m glad that I read it again as a reminder! It looks like I need to get baking and crafting and making some travel plans. Anybody want to join me on that vacation out of the country?!? (I’m totally being serious, I’ve watched way too many criminal shows to go on vacation by myself…)

Don’t forget, if you want to start your own Day Zero Project (a 101 in 1001 list), just hop over to their website (http://dayzeroproject.com) and get started! It’s fun and kinda addicting and I’ve already been making a mental list of what I would put on a second one!
