101 in 1001

Happy Wednesday, Lovelies! For the most of us Spring Break is upon us and with that comes many things. Going on vacation and relaxing at home originally come to mind, but I also love to get work done and feel accomplished over Spring Break. As I mentioned here Spring Break is usually the time where people abandon their New Year resolution goals. I, however, have made it a point to consult my New Year resolutions list throughout the past couple of months to make sure I am on task to accomplish everything by the end of 2014. For the most part, I have been keeping up with everything on my list (though I can't say it's that big of a feat since there are only three things on it) and have found the feeling of accomplishment to be vastly rewarding.

So, as inspired by Brass Honey and other blogs, I have decided to do the 101 in 1001 challenge. "101 in 1001" is a list of 101 things you plan to do in 1001 days; a bucket list of sorts. Below I have listed my 101 things and my start and end dates of the 1001 days. I have been in the process of making this list for about six weeks now so some of the things have already been completed, therefore the start date is March 1 and not today. I will be keeping track of my progress on A Glamorous Revelation on the page marked "101 in 1001"which you can find in the tabs at the top of the page. The 1001st day will be just shy of my 20th birthday so it will be a combined celebration of accomplishment and success. I hope this inspires you to live in the moment, do things now, and experience life because sometimes we all take life too seriously when at times it's really meant to just be fun.
