NEW 101 Things

This was a 101 Things list I did years ago, and unfortunately did not finish it. I have plans to reevaluate and come up with a brand new list of things to try for 2020! I'm a little disappointed in myself, but I also want to use this as a lesson that if you don't end up doing everything, take joy in what you were able to do, reconsider your goals, and start again!


You I am adding some of the things from the previous list that I have not yet done, and I'm going to still do my best to accomplish them before March 1, 2014. Being that it's almost the new year though, I wanted to make a new 101 Things list that ran from Jan 1, 2014 to Jan 1, 2017 instead.
