101 in 1001 Update

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you might have seen a post that I wrote at the beginning of 2016 - my 101 in 1001 list. I refer back to it in a lot of my blog posts, but if you haven't checked it out yet, I highly encourage you to do so before you read this post so everything makes sense! :)


If you don't know what 101 in 1001 is, it's basically a list (started by Mackenzie Horan) of 101 things you want to accomplish in 1001 days. I started mine in 2016, and here I am, exactly 500 days later, with 501 days to go. 1001 days seemed like a long time, but the first 500 days have flown by extremely quickly. I've accomplished a lot in this time period, but it's honestly not as much as I hoped to accomplish.

Nevertheless, I'm excited to share my progress on this list with y'all!

Travel & Adventure // I've completed 4 out of 25 things on this list, and have a couple in progress! I'm not really sure what my summer vacation plans are yet, but I'm hoping to go on a road trip, go to the beach, and go to a new state so I can cross off a couple more items on my list. Last summer, I got a couple things crossed off my list, so hopefully I'll be able to go on more adventures such as camping and ziplining this summer.

Health & Fitness // I'm hoping to cross off more in this category this summer as well! I have so many recipes that I want to make, and hopefully that will allow me to try some new foods. I've really gotten into cooking lately, and have cooked a couple recipes by myself so hopefully I can improve my cooking skills even more. I haven't timed my mile in a while, either, but this summer I am determined to work on it and get it under 7 minutes. I started doing a lot of running after doing my first 5k back in November, and I definitely want to do a color run soon. My dad and I actually did a spin class a couple days ago, and it was extremely challenging but I enjoyed it and plan on doing more classes in the future.

Blog // I've made pretty good progress on this one! I really devoted the beginning of 2017 to working on my blog, which is when I reached 100,000 page views, got a DSLR, started a YouTube channel, and bought my domain name. I do feel like I've been slacking recently when it comes to writing and publishing blog posts, but I'm planning to work on it a lot as soon as everything dies down with school and it would be amazing if I could reach my goals of 5k Instagram & Pinterest followers soon! I'm also so close to reaching my blog post goals, and since I have a ton of fun content coming up, those goals shouldn't be hard to accomplish.

Faith // This section was short to begin with, but I'm proud to say I'm over halfway done! I stopped teaching Sunday School at the beginning of the year, but I taught 20 times last year so I feel pretty proud of myself. I haven't quite memorized 50 Bible verses, but I have started studying the Bible on a nightly basis and I have a lot of verses that I want to memorize. I haven't really given much thought to going on a mission trip, but that's still something that I am very interested in.

Beauty & Fashion // Being the shopaholic that I am, I've purchased most of the things I wanted to. The main part of this section left is hair, which I've got a long way to go on. I really want to learn how to do some simple hairstyles, since I'm really bad with hair and hate doing my hair.

Learn & Create // This section is almost completed, too! I have a couple DIY's I want to try and things I want to paint, so I'm excited to do those soon. I was planning on learning guitar last summer, but then I broke my wrist, so I'm thinking that might be a project to do this summer as long as I manage not to break anything.

Just For Fun // A couple of these goals aren't realistic to do any time soon, such as experiencing a white Christmas, but hopefully can complete some more of these items soon. Since becoming a soccer referee, I've made a good amount of money, which has allowed me to buy some of the things that I talked about in the fashion section. I've also put a lot of money towards savings, so I'm right on track with my goals financially!

Although I've only completed 34 out of 101 items, I have quite a few of these items in progress and I hope to cross some off my list in the near future. I definitely plan on being halfway finished with this list by the time 2018 rolls around. It seems so far away, but it'll be here before I know it!

If you haven't made one of these lists, I highly encourage you to do so! It's a great way to make goals and stay motivated to complete them.

Do you have a 101 in 1001 list? If so, how is your progress?
