A Brand New List – 101 goals in 1001 days, ready, set, go! {Personal Post}

I can’t believe I’m writing this list again for the second time.  Many of the 101 goals I set to complete in the first 1001 days were really random and out there, but to my surprise were completed nonetheless.  Click here to see the old list.  So once again, I’m putting some currently unrealistic goals on the new list.  I’m also bringing over a few of the goals from the old list that were never completed, and some that I enjoyed and want to do again.  I’m excited to see where the next 1001 days take us, but hopefully it will go by a little slower than the last 1001!
