101 Things List Completed

Over the weekend I completed my 101 Things To Do in 1001 Days list. It was actually kind of hard. I did end up going to the day zero website and clicked on other peoples blogs to get inspired. Items in bold I have completed (with the completed date). Items in italic I have started (with dates if appropriate).

There were quite a few things on my list that I realistically didn't think I could accomplish within the next 1001 days. Some of them were travel related. Because I really want to get to Europe at some point in the next 1001 days. Some of my other out of country travels are on a second 101 things list to be started after this first one.

In all reality, I think the reason for this list and the time deadline is to ensure you actually do some of the things you always think you will do. It will also bring to the forefront things you thought you wanted to accomplish but maybe are not as important to you as you once thought.

In any event, I will be happy if I accomplish a good majority of the items on this list by the end date. If I don't get to all 101 things that is OK with me. The point is to stop thinking and "just do it".

If you're interested, the web design class I took was online and you should be able to take it, too. Let me know if you want the information about it. :)
