#101- Write Another List of 101 Things

Life was too hectic to share this when my 101 Things in 1001 Days officially ended (October 28; can you believe it's over?!?) But, I did complete the final goal before the deadline: #101- Write another list of 101 things to do for the next 1001 days. Now that we've moved and things have settled down a bit, I thought I would take a minute to share my new 101 Things list.

As I sat down to begin this list, I had a terrifying realization. The deadline for List 2.0 is July 30, 2019. 


I will turn 30 in January 2019.

So basically, I was now making a list of all the things I want to do before I turn 30. It suddenly took on a whole new weight. 

Re-reading my list now, I see that it's much more serious. There are still a handful of "just for fun" things, but there are also several not-fun but necessary "adult" goals. Also, this time around, I stepped it up and created nice little categories to organize my list into chunks. It's much more visually appealing, it's easier to locate my goals, and the neatness of it makes my heart happy.

So. Without further ado, I present to you my new list of 101 Things in 1001 Days.
