Goal Setting

For the past  month I have spent a lot of time thinking about New Year resolutions.  A large amount of people make fitness oriented goals, or they create a list that just is not realistic.  I decided that this year I wanted to take New Year resolutions to a new level.  I'll be twenty next month, and I feel like there is still so much that I haven't done in life.  What better time to start exploring everything out there than now.  I've read some blogs where bloggers have done 101 things in 1001 days.  After thinking about it, I decided that this would be a perfect thing to do to begin a New Year.  I'm not going with the whole "new year new me" motto, but instead it's a new year more adventurous me. 

What is it?
So if you have no idea what 101 things in 1001 days is, I'm sure you are very curious.  The idea is to make goal setting more realistic, but to add some dream things into it too.  You create a list of 101 things to do across 1001 days.  It is pretty self explanatory, but I really think the concept of this is awesome. I hope to inspire at least one other person to do this challenge, if you decide to do this too let me know!
Believe it or not, it is by no means easy to think of 101 things to do.  I am still creating my list but for now here is what I have. Check out my 101 in 1001 tab for updates as I add more things to my list, and I begin to complete things.
