101 in 1001 days

101 in 1001 photo

I’m a list maker, simply put, I write list for everything. Goals, travel, if you can name it, I make lists for it. The concept of completing 101 goals in 1001 days is nothing new, but it’s something I’ve never done. Since my blog is a place where I not only share my work but also personal posts, I figure what better way to start than to share my goals with you! Much like my blog, my goals are a mix of professional and personal aspirations that I hope to accomplish in the next 1001 days…or more. I hope you have fun reading through, I’d love to hear if we share a couple!

In case you’re wondering, the beach pictured in the photo above is my favorite beach! It’s a secluded beach located on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai that can only be reached via a long and extremely pothole filled road. The water is amazingly turquoise and extremely transparent making it amazing for swimming, snorkelling and of course, staring in wonderment.
