Updated 101 in 1001 Goals

Remember when all the bloggers were doing those 101 goals in 1001 days lists? Well I made one as well, and those 1001 days just ended on the 16th! It was so fun making that list a few years ago, and I wanted to circle back to that post to see what I accomplished and what things I didn't. I'll also be writing a new set of goals for the next 1001 days. This past year has been all sorts of challenging, and it's given me a much different perspective on life so I want to create some goals that aren't as superficial as before (although let's be honest there will still be plenty of those. I have 101 goals to come up with!)

In my last 101 in 1001 list I crossed off 67 goals. Not bad, but definitely not great. I did make it through some big ones like graduating college, adopting a cat, and buying a domain name (as well as preliminarily crossing off "move to a new city" since it's currently in the works!), and a lot of the ones I didn't end up finishing were small goals like putting all my nail polish on some app. I don't think I even touched that app after creating the list, oops! You can go ahead and look through my old goals, but here are my new set of goals! Of course there will be some silly, materialistic, trivial, etc goals, but there are also some deeper and more personal ones on this list as well.
