101 in 1001

life2 While surfing the web I stumbled upon a great idea some time ago. It is called 101 in 1001 and means that you write down a realistic list of 101 things that you can and want to accomplish within the period of 1001 days. Since I love lists and have several bucket lists I decided to give it a try. Writing this list was not easy at all! I never thought that it might be hard to think of 101 things to do, but since the list should be realistic it is a little harder – my budget as a student won’t be enough for lots of big and expensive trips, nor will I be able to afford expensive handbags. And I just didn’t want to list random stuff, but rather write down a meaningful list. It took me nearly a week, can you imagine?! Would anyone of you consider joining me? What would your lists look like?101in1001 So here is my very personal list - deadline March 15th, 2017 (I’ve already accomplished some points!):
