I recently stumbled across Mackenzie Horan from Design Darlings list to do 101 things in 1001 days. I love this idea of making a sort of bucket list, then putting a 1001 Day time-limit on it. So I figured, why not? By publishing it, I can be accountable for actually completing this list! So here goes:
