101 Things to do in 1001 Days: Take 2

101 Things to do in 1001 Days is a unique spin on a bucket list.

Less than a year ago, I wrote out my first list of 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days and while I accomplished some of what was on the list I realized I needed to rework it some and try again. So I decided to reboot my list and this time, start on a date that made sense, the beginning of the year.

I like this list because I feel it’s more ambitious and definitely has its fair share of adventures. I’m taking steps to make visual cues of this list too so I constantly have a visual of these bucket list items and that way I’ll be more accountable for achieving them.

So here we go!
