101 things in 1001 days. #1


I was inspired a while back by the lovely Helen over at Beautifully Superfluous to do a post like this. I’m the kind of person who has a lot of aspirations and believe you should make the best out of your life, and one way of doing this is setting goals. The 101 things on this list I will hoped to have achieved by 17th April 2015. (Which incidentally will be my first wedding anniversary!) These may be big life changing things, or little things that may seem insignificant to most. They are not in any particular order. I’ll be sure to update maybe monthly or quarterly to let anyone who is interested know of my progress.

  1. Buy a house.
  2. Watch all the Star Wars films (This is so Mr K will stop nagging me!)
  3. Learn to make something (that’s not food related) from scratch, like a piece of silver jewellery.
  4. Visit as many American cities and/or States as I can. (Back to NY, Washington, Florida, Chicago…suggestions?)
  5. Go to Rome.
  6. Learn to not worry what others think.
  7. Read 101 books I’ve never read before. (This is probably quite a cop-out goal, ha!)
  8. Take an evening class doing something I enjoy.
