101 in 1001

I’ve been following Becky from Becky Bedbug for a while now and I have always been interested in her 101 in 1001 posts without fully understanding what they were. I recently googled it to see and found out it was quite an interesting challenge! You have to make a list of 101 goals to complete in a timescale of 1001 years (roughly 2.75 years). The idea behind this is that the timescale isn’t too rushed that it is impossible but also isn’t too long for it to be forgotten about.

After three or more days of trying to work out my list, I have finally finished and categorized it as best I can! So here goes!
Start date: 6/5/2014

  1. brilliant idea! I love Becky's 101 in 1001 posts too - looking forward to how you get on with yours.
    It's so silly you have to use a plaster to cover your nose piercing, but I guess it's more of a hassle having to take it out every time? Also I love the idea of Post Pals - thank you for introducing me to them! *off to search for a penpal*

    1. Thank you! I'm so excited to get started, I just don't know where to begin! I can't take my piercing out thats why it's so annoying. The plaster is to 'stop it falling out' but it can't fall out because I cant take it out without going to a piercers! Ah no worries! I love the idea! It's so cute!

  2. I had wanted to know what this challenge was for ages, so great to see what it is :) I want to do it, but I never stick to things especially for that long lol. Loving all yours though, can I literally go on all those travel/day trips with you?! Sounds amazing :) & omg I want a penpal too! xx Gemma xx Sunshine On A Cloudy Day Blog :)

    1. It's such a good challenge! I think it's something everyone should take part in, especially if you set small goals you can actually accomplish! You should give it a go definitely! Haha! Yes you can :P Thanks for commenting! xx


I love reading your comments and I will try my best to reply to every one! Don't leave irrelevant links though. Comments containing irrelevant links will be deleted.
