101 in 1001

If you aren’t familiar with 101 in 1001, it’s basically a bucket list of 101 things you want to do within 1001 days from your starting date.  I believe 101 in 1001 was started by Mackenzie Horan from Design Darling, and I love the idea!  I have seen this on a few other blogs that I love (such as Navy Striped Peonies, Yep, It’s Prep, and XOXO Allison Nicole) and thought it looked so fun so I really wanted to do it myself!  It’s so crazy to think that 1001 days from now I will be a freshman in college, I can’t wait to see what happens between now and then.  Once I complete each item, it will be crossed off the list.  I have divided the 101 items into seven categories; academics/school, bucket list items, blog/social media, health/fitness/sports, for others, Christianity, and random.
