My 101 in 1001

 For the first time I've made a 101 in 1001 list to keep up with! 
In case you haven't heard of 101 in 1001, it's a combination to-do list and bucket list. The time spans 1001 days- approximately 2.75 years and contains 101 tasks that must be completed before this date. It might seem easy to come up with 101 things you want to do- but I've been working on mine for weeks and I haven't finished the list!
I'll try to update this list as I go. 
Here are my 101 tasks in 1001 days I'd like to accomplish:
  1. Get engaged
  2. Graduate college

 I'll come back through and insert links where necessary but this is a small snapshot of what I want to achieve over the next 1001 days. My time runs out May 19, 2016. 
I think the 101 in 1001 is an amazing idea. I had to really think about what I wanted to do over the next 3 years (approx). I asked myself who I wanted to be at the end of the these 3 years. And this is the list I came up with. It's not finished yet and I don't know if I can complete everything on my list but I'm happy to have made it this far. 
What do you think of the 101 in 1001 idea? Do you have a list yourself? Are you tempted to make one? Leave me a comment and let me know!
