Current total = 28+9+24+10+10+18=99 (2 left)

I’ve left myself two empty goals because frankly I just couldn’t think of anymore right now and later inspiration might strike.

Making this list was really fun and I think I even learned a few things about myself and how my priorities have changed as I’ve gone from college student to “young professional” and soon-to-be wife. If you want to do your own list, check out Day Zero Project for goal ideas. Once I get a little more organized I’ll try to link up with other bloggers who have taken on the 101 in 1,001 challenge. If you have a list, link to it below in the comments!
