101 in 1001

Towards the end of 2015 I felt like I was not really living. I don't know exactly why this realization came to me, but I'm glad it did. I felt like the last two to three months of the year I was just waiting for the weekend, waiting for a break or waiting for something to happen, but nothing happened. I've been eager to try 101 in 1001, but was simply waiting for the right time. Now that I'm headed off to college next year I don't think there could be a better time to create a bucket list of 101 things I want to accomplish in 1001 days.
