101 Things in 1001 Days

June 29, 2012 – Mach 27, 2015

The 1001 days are over, but I decided to leave this up as a reminder of the things I want to still accomplish. I might make another list at some point, but for now I’m focusing on other things. 

I’ve made a list of things that I would like to do in the next 1001 days – some of them are really big goals, others are just fun little things that I haven’t done since I was a kid, like coloring an entire coloring book.

Items that have been completed are in bold.

  1. I absolutely LOVE what you did here. I never thought of putting a time limit or anything like that on my bucket list. Making a bucket list like this is now on my bucket list! Great job crossing things off, keep doing it!

  2. Thanks 🙂 I got the idea from a few other bloggers before I actually started my blog. You can either just make up your own list, or you can go to dayzeroproject.com to get some ideas from other people’s lists. You should definitely make a bucket list, it’s a lot of fun 🙂 Plus it gives you an excuse to do things that you’ve always wanted to do but just haven’t gotten around to doing yet!
