101 in 1001

So, turns out I am terrible at actually getting things done if it's just for me. I know, what a realization. Years of doing things for other people has led to this moment of self-deprivation of things that should be important to me and no amount of lists have yet changed it but what would I be without another try? Life's an often revolving door and I can't help but keep pushing hoping it would lead me into a different destination. Here's a new list, new hopes, new dreams, but a little bit of old goals, things unfinished, stories untold lying beneath the numbers for myself to find and celebrate.

Start: Saturday, May 17, 2014
End: Friday, February 10, 2017

Completed tasks are crossed off, and links whenever I've posted about them in blog.

I got the inspiration from Day Zero.
