Coffee With a List: 101 in 1,001 Days–August 2015 Edition

With the last Friday of the month already here comes my monthly update of my list of 101 activities to do in 1,001 days. Within my original post I explained that this list is not created to stress me out by giving me a deadline, but to ensure that I am living my life with happiness in mind. So often do we focus on bettering our lives for the future that we forget to live our lives while preparing for that future.

In thirty-nine days I have traveled across the country and back, moved into my apartment in my university town, and started classes, successfully completing six activities from my list without even really trying. Completed activities are in bold and crossed out, with a minute amount of details to the side of them. Those with asterisks will be shared sometime within the month as a post.

Happy reading! Feel free to share some of your experiences as well!

Start Date: Monday, July 20th, 2015
Finish Line: Monday, April 16th, 2018

  1. Nice. I’ve seen this 101 list a few times, and it sounds like a fun idea. I’m thinking of doing one, but a little shorter in a shorter time span. I’ll keep you posted. Great job crossing off so many on your already!


  2. Great list! This also reminded me that my husband and I don’t have too much time left on our 101 in 1001 list. We need to get on completing some of these things. Good luck!


  3. Looks like you’re making progress on your list pretty quickly! I’ve never been to California…which is a little crazy considering that my husband lived there for his first 21 years…


  4. It’s such a great idea about this list. I’ve seen it on the other web-site as well. You have great tasks to accomplish. I was thinking about making such list too.


  5. Wow! I don’t know if I will make one yet, but I definitely will give it more thought! It seems like a great idea. You have a lot of really neat goals on your list!
