Coffee with a List: 101 in 1,001 Days-September 2015 Edition

I know, I know; it’s been a while. I can honestly say I’m more than sorry. College has just been throwing one thing after the other. The route of an aspiring journalist, as well as any other occupation my friends are pursuing, is not an easy route. Again I ask that you please accept my sincerest apologies and maybe even work with me through e-mail, commenting below, or messaging. I would love to hear what you all want to read and see.

With the last Friday of September being long gone, I give to you a delayed update on my 101 activities to do in 1,001 days. As I have said in both my last posts relating to this topic this list is not created to stress me out by giving me a deadline, but to ensure that I am living my life in happiness. So often do we focus on bettering our lives for the future (as in pursuing our college degrees or just graduating school in general) that we forget to live our lives while preparing for that future.

Since the last time I updated this I have managed to only accomplish three more activities on my list, but I feel no anxiety on my lack of accomplishments. I still have about two-and-a-half years.

Anyways, enough about me.

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