Update: 101 in 1001

Thursday, July 23, 2015

It's hard to believe I'm already more than halfway through my 1001 days, but also surprising that I hadn't already been there! With 449 days left to go in my endeavor, I wanted to share a quick update on what I have yet to complete - mostly so I'll start working on crossing off some items...
  1. Go to a Cubs game.
  2. Purchase my first piece of original art. 
  3. Take up pottery again, if only for a day.
  4. See a large ballet production.

  9. Make macarons. 
  10. Teach someone basic French.
  11. Go skinny dipping. 
  12. Throw an elegant dinner party.
  13. Take an art history tour of Italy. 
  14. Exercise at least twice a week for three consecutive months. 
  15. Read the Harry Potter series in French. (0/7)

  23. Go scuba diving. 
  24. See the châteaux of the Loire valley. 
  25. Take a self-defense class. 
  26. Rent a beach house with friends. 
  27. Go ziplining. 
  28. Floss everyday for a month. 
  29. Take a ballet class for the first time since high school. 
  30. Watch Sweet Home Alabama. 
  31. Eat a cronut. 
  32. Adopt or foster a pet. 
  33. Add a lock to the Love Lock bridge in Paris. 
  34. Apply for the Peace Corps. 
  35. Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
  36. Drink a butter beer. 
  37. Float in the Dead Sea.
  38. Pay for a stranger's dinner. 
  39. See the Stonehenge.
  40. Find the perfect LBD. 
  41. Watch 5 TED Talks. (3/5)
  42. See a politician speak live. 
  43. Join a new club. 
  44. Learn how to play golf. 
  45. Go on a kayaking trip.

  49. Have a job lined up for after graduation. 
  50. Unplug for a day (no internet, phone, etc).
  51. Donate to a political group I believe in. 
  52. Begin writing my first book. 
  53. Watch the entire Titanic movie. 
  54. Write a new 101 in 1,001 list when this one is finished!

I still have quite a few to go - and, while I hate to admit it, I'm sure some of these will have to hop on over to my next 101 in 1,001 list (oops). But it's also kind of crazy to think of the amount I have completed in just a little over 500 days. I am nowhere near the person I was when I began this list and I am so excited to see who I'll be at the end of it!
