101 Things in 1001 Days

I first saw the "101 Things in 1001 Days" idea on Mackenzie Horan's blog. After reading through her list of 101 things, I was inspired to create a list of my own! By the time 1001 days have come and gone, I will have graduated from college and I'll be out on my own in the real world. I feel that the following 101 things will help me grow as a person and prepare me for life after college. I am confident that I can complete them, and I'm excited to see where this adventure takes me!
