LEVELING UP - 101 in 1001

START DATE: June 1, 2016
END DATE: February 27th, 2019

It is my birthday tomorrow. As I approach some milestones in my life, I started thinking about the things that I have not done yet. I also moved to California last year with the Rogue and when I moved from Montana I realized that I had lived in beautiful Montana for quite a few years and crossed very little off of my bucket list. I wondered why. I wondered how many things I could do in my new home and this new chapter in my life. Imagine how many adventures and new things to learn are out there. It is time for me to level up. I need a +20 in life right now.

Now I love lists. I do well with lists (probably because I enjoy crossing things off of them). So, I started thinking about those bucket lists. What haven’t I done? What is keeping me from doing it all? A friend sent me a link to dayzeroproject.com and this epic list of my life wishes began to form.

Here is the plan. I have 1001 days to complete all 101 goals and level up as a human being. 3 years. A lot can happen in 3 years. It consists of things across all points of my life. Some of them are easy. Some of them will be difficult. But all of them can be accomplished if I really wanted them to. I unofficially started this about a month ago, but now it’s official. I did a post and everything. :)

My goal is to post when I have completed something (including pictures when I can). Maybe I will be uber awesome and get all 101 things done. Maybe the point is that I will have tried and that I am conscious of the things *I* want in my life. Of course these are not the only things I want either. This list could keep going for quite some time. I suppose that means something. Like I said I am ready to level up as a human. I know these things usually happen at the beginning of the new year, but now feels the right time for me. Thank you for going on the journey with me. Support me, heckle me, or make sure I keep on track. I hope it will be fun. Allons-y!
