101 in 1001 Days | Finished

It is hard to believe that I have already finished my 1001 Days. I started on January 1, 2013, shortly after moving to Louisiana. My 1001 days ended on September 29, 2015. To be honest, I have not thought much about these 101 things in a few months because I basically finished the ones I knew I could accomplish and there were not many left I could do in the time I had left. I ended up finishing 72 of my 101 things. I am actually pretty proud that I was able to finish so many of them. There are certain things on here that I should have finished, but just never made the time to. There are other things that when I created this list I was feeling ambitious and thought they would be easy, but were not.

I haven't decided if I am going to make another list or not. I could make one, but I feel like our life could be drastically different in a year, so I don't want to commit to a three year project. I have also seen 30 before 30 lists, but they seem too broad for me so I don't know yet. I liked having this list as a way to challenge myself and get things done, but I don't know how to replicate that just yet. Maybe I should have a year long project or something? We shall see. 

Here is the progress I made on my 101 things in 1001 days!
