101 Things in 1001 Days

I found this 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge few years ago on Day Zero Project. I love writing lists and setting goals/challenges for myself. It motivates me to try something new and make positive changes to my life.

I started my first 101 in 1001 list in 2012 and I managed to complete 65 goals! I decided to start my second 101 in 1001 challenge right after I finished my A-levels examination. So here’s my second 101 Things in 1001 Days list!
