101 in 1001


101 things in 1001 days.


Why I hear you ask? Well this was something I came across a few years ago and I just completely loved it straight away – I’m a sucker for lists you see.

So what’s it all about? For those of you who know nothing about this, click here it’s called the day zero project. Basically, you compile a list of 101 different things – those things could be anything and everything your heart desires and the goal is to complete them within the 1001 days.

And just so you know 1001 days breaks down to 2 years, 8 months, 3 weeks, 6 days, 11 hours, 33 minutes and 20 seconds (to be precise).


I do absolutely love the idea and have restarted it many times over because I keep wanting to change things or I keep wanting to create completely new lists altogether.

I started a brand new list and now I have many new goals I hope to achieve within the next 1001 days.. So, lets get going!


To be completed between:

June 1st 2017 and February 26th 2020.
So, what does my list look like?
