101 in 1001

Happy 2018! I decided to start the new year off with a 101 in 1001 list. If you aren't familiar with the concept it became popular by Mackenzie from Design Darling; you can read her current list here. Essentially it's a list of 101 things you want to accomplish in 1001 days.

I did a 50 in 500 list that finished with my 25th birthday, but this time I decided to bite the bullet and do a full list. So my list starts today and will end on September 28, 2020. I'll make a new tab up top and mark items off as I go so you can follow my progress.
