You know, I’ve been doing lists like this since 2012 and I love it. Love it.  I’m all about goals, I’m all about broadening my horizons. This is my third 101 list and you know what? It was fucking HARD to make. I’ve done SO much. I’m not even trying to sound like an ass, but seriously, so much. I did roll over some things from my last into this one, since I didn’t get some of them done last time. The funny thing is sometimes these things take time to manifest. For instance, I had actually put “ride a horse in Montana” on my 2012 list. It took THIS LONG to get it done! Or “photograph a wedding in Mexico” is from the last list. I rolled it over to this list and I’ll be happy to cross it off this month!

So here we go. Here’s to some productive goal hitting! Have you ever created a 101 list? I highly recommend it!
