update: 101 things in 1,001 days


it’s the home stretch for my 101 things in 1,001 days list, which I created and began attempting in March 2015. as it to be expected, a lot has changed in my life in the last 671 days and many of those events directly impact the probability of some of these items from happening — in that they can’t and won’t. but, I’m okay with that. there are quite a few items I can still check off by December 17 and I plan to do what I can to make it happen.
