101 in 1001

101 in 1001
I recently read about this idea of accomplishing 101 things in 1001 days. It's basically a combination of a to-do/bucket list for 1001 days. I usually don't make New Year Resolutions because I never keep them, so I thought that the idea of "101 in 1001" would be an interesting alternative to tackle as we head into 2017. I started on Christmas Day [weird, I know], but only because one of the things I wanted to do was attend a midnight mass. So I already get to cross an item off the list!
