101 Things in 1001 Days

I’ve been looking for a new challenge for a while and 101 Things in 1001 Days really appeals to me. I thrive off goals and challenges. It’s why I have New Years Resolutions every year and blog goals.

This year, for example, I aim to read 80 books. So far I’ve read 60 so I’m doing pretty well with that goal. But I could do with some long-term goals that aren’t just Bucket List goals but things to actually do in a relatively short amount of time. Hence 101 Things in 1001 Days.
