The Wrap Up – 101 in 1001

Spread the love

So a while back… you know, as in back in 2010, after reading that a lot of people jumped on the bandwagon to do the 101 in 1001 list, I decided to play along.  I’m pretty sure if I remember right, after seeing Jill sign up, I decided I needed to as well.  She was one of my newest followers at the time, and really there were lots of other people but I’m pretty sure she was the one who pushed me over the edge.

I printed my list off and carried it with me for over 2 years.  That paper saw better days, that’s for sure.  Parts of it I had to reprint a couple times for different reasons… but the paper stayed in my purse and was carried around with me for 2 years.

I would pull it out when I went to places to see if I could cross anything off.  Sadly there were things on here that caused me problems and there were things I was unable to finish for whatever reason, but it was a fun list to attempt and I was able to cross a lot of things off.

The list I finished with wasn’t the original, I wound up having to modify it a bit for one reason or another, but here is the list and what I was able to accomplish or the things toward the end I knew wouldn’t happen.

We’re finally closing that chapter of this list.  I haven’t worked on it in a while, I just finally found a time to recap it 🙂


Ok, I jumped on the bandwagon! Although this is difficult!!! So here are the things I would like to try and accomplish in 1001 days (2.75 years).
Starting day: September 29, 2010, ending day: June 26, 2013 (boy I hope I did my math right ;)).

Wish me Luck!!!

  1. Wow – you got a lot more completed than I did off my list! Mine ended in June too, but I'm still going to try and cross some of them off and work towards getting it completed. Maybe within the next year! 😉

  2. You got a ton crossed off! And hey, you might not have snorkeled but you learned and went scuba diving! That seems like it should count to me.
