101 in 1001

This is the second 101 in 1001 list I've made, and to be honest I did a terrible job of tracking my progress the first time around back in 2013. I'm giving myself another shot, with a brand new list of 101 things to accomplish within the next 1001 days (about 2.75 years). If you feel inspired to create a list of your own, let me know so I can link your list here (and check off #101!)
