101 things in 1001 days

101in1001

So, after seeing this idea on several blogs, I’ve decided to also make a bucket list of sorts.  101 in 1001 is a list of 101 things I would like to accomplish in the next 1001 days (or 2.75 years).  For my complete list, click this link.

Just to give you an idea, some of the things I have included are things that should happen naturally, assuming  I continue on the path I’m on.  For example, getting my Specialist’s degree, getting a job, getting married, etc.  Others include things that I have always wanted to do but keep putting off, like taking a calligraphy class or finishing my family tree book.

Some things are things that I can do once and I’m done, while others address more long-term goals that I have (such as exercising).

The most appealing aspect of this list is that it gives me plenty of time to work on short- and long-term goals without the pressure of having to finish in a year. (I rarely enjoy making new year’s resolutions!)  I am excited about adding new things to the list and starting on this adventure!  I will do my best to update you as I start completing tasks.  Once a month, at the very least!

Any suggestions for my list?  Add them in a comment below!

kickstart your summer with a summer bucket list

The summer is my favorite time of the year, and what better to do than to make a bucket list to get the most out of my summer?!?  This summer’s list seems longer than ones from past years.  I packed this summer full of activities, hoping that it would make my last summer at home the most memorable one yet.  I’m also hoping that keeping busy will make the summer fly because I am eager to get to the grand finale–the big move to Texas!

Without further ado, here’s the tentative bucket list for the summer of 2013:

Summer Bucket List 2013

It’s been proven that people who keep a list of their goals are much more likely to achieve the goals they have than those who do not write them.  So, I always like to include goals for organizing my life and forming more healthy habits.  In the past it has been easier for me to develop certain habits over the summer and work towards maintaining them in the fall.  I actually prefer summer goals over new year’s resolutions, as I have had much more success with summer goals in the past.  So if you haven’t tried a summer bucket/goals list before, I encourage you to try it and let me know how it goes!

I’d love to hear what you have planned for the summer.  Feel free to post your summer events in the comments box below!  Happy Summer!
