101 in 1001 Update!

Last year I published a ‘bucket list’ of sorts, with 101 things I wanted to do in 1001 days. The original post can be found here.  Today is the day I will finally post an update of my progress so far 243 days down the line. I am approximately 25% of the way through this challenge and in my mind I would have loved to have crossed off 25% of the things but in reality, that just hasn’t happened. However I have managed to cross some things off so lets see how I got on.

11) Get my blog professionally redesignedAleelily Designs made me a custom blog design which, I have to admit, has made me feel much more positive about blogging. Having a good layout makes me blog feel more professional and together which makes me want to blog more!

27) Start a Wreck This Journal – For my 21st birthday my sister bought me a Wreck This Journal. She printed out my 101 in 1001 list and crossed this item off for me. I have started it and it was a struggle. Writing in books just goes against what comes natural to me. Books are for reading, not destroying but I am enjoying the creative process more than I thought I would. Thanks Gracie you star!

28) Buy a disposable camera and take photo’s the old fashioned way! – Another one my sister helped me out with. She bought me a disposable camera alongside the Wreck This Journal and I managed to fill the camera with photos from my holiday to Thassos.

83) Do 50 squats a day for 30 days – This was one I found easy to complete. Once you get into the hang of having to do the squats it’s a doddle. I did mine before the shower every morning in an attempt to wake myself up and get some form of exercise into the day.

Those are the things I have managed to cross of completely as finished. As you can see I have not exactly done amazingly but I am trying and that’s all that counts. However this year I am going to make more of an effort with this list as I do not want to come to the end of the 1001 days having only crossed off a small amount of things. So, without further ado my list related goals for this year are:

1) Graduate with a 2.1 or higher
2) Get a First in my dissertation
5) Reach 300 followers on Bloglovin’
6) Enter the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2015
13) Post 10 more wishlist posts on the blog
14) Get 200 twitter followers
16) Get together savings of £500+
19) Be clear of my overdraft by the time I graduate (July 2015)
36) Visit two new countries
41) Go to a zoo I’ve never been to before
47) Visit a water park
59) Go parasailing
60) Conquer my fear of Oblivion at Alton Towers
65) Go out to eat, just for dessert
84) Do 50 star jumps a day for 30 days
85) Lose a stone and maintain this weight
86) Start driving lessons
95) Watch all of Breaking Bad (I am currently watching this so hopefully this can be ticked off soon!)
96) Finish watching The Walking Dead

So there you have it, the huge list of things I definitely want crossed off by the end of this year! Some should be much easier than others such as watching Breaking Bad and doing 50 star jumps but I am very motivated to keep going and cross off as many things as possible!

  2. Good luck chick. I'm currently compiling a 35 at 35 list because I'm old! Lol

    1. Thank you :) haha well I hope you manage to tick them all off! x

  3. You have such a good mixture of different things you'd like to achieve! I'm sure you can do it :) I would be terrible at something like this so I applaud you for your efforts, especially the squats! I can't even walk up stairs without dying hahaha.
