101 in 1001

While reading Mackenzie Horan's update post on her 101 in 1001 list yesterday I was completely inspired to create my own.  Since it's a new year and resolutions are everywhere, it seemed like the perfect idea to get me pumped for the days ahead.  If you don't know what a 101 in 1001 list is, it's a compilation of 101 things you want to accomplish in the next 1001 days.  

Let me just start off by saying that making this list was not easy.  Coming up with 101 things that I want to accomplish in the next 1001 days is a lot.  I am confident that I can get these things done, even though they will all prove challenging.  I'm excited to do this because it'll push me out of my comfort zone in many ways.  I mean, donating blood? Flash back to 2007, I was the girl who poured a whole bottle of numbing cream on my arm before getting blood taken and still cried like a baby.  I'm so excited to see what these next 1001 days have for me! It's also hard to believe that by the end of this I'll be a Senior in college! Yikes! 

Let me know if you create your own list and I'll link it down below!
