Update: 101 Things in 1001 Days

Well April marks my halfway point for my 101 Things in 1001 Days. It is so crazy to me that I am already halfway through my time. I need to start checking more things off my list. My end date is September 29, 2015. I have completed 40 items so far and I am super pumped about that. There are a few items on my list that I am not sure that I will finish anymore because my plans have changed a bit. A lot of these things are hard to do in my area because they simply are not offered. But I am going to do my best to finish as many as possible! I have written my most current updates in blue to keep things clear and the orange is links to my posts about finishing the items.

Goals in progress are italicized, goals completed are bolded
