101 in 1001

Hey guys!!

Welcome to my new page “101 in 1001“. A lot of you may have seen other bloggers participating in this goal list challenge, and I thought why not? It’s an easy way to set some goals, make some new posts, and in some way be held accountable for completing them.

I originally got this idea from blogger Jhaneel Lockhart and you can see her list hereIt’s basically a list of 101 things you’d like to complete in 1001 days (2.75 years). I followed her idea of breaking it into groups: Long overdue, Personal, Travel, Antigua (where I currently live), Food, Family/Friends, Passion projects, Just for fun, Blog goals, and other So without delaying any further, here is my list!
