MISSION 101

Mission 101 (a.k.a 101 things to do in 1001 days) is my mini-bucket-list-project. It consists of a random assortment of things I want to do in the next few years. Some things are big and life changing. Some things are small, everyday stuff. All of it has to do with living a happier, more fulfilled life and to take the time to do the things I enjoy. And some of it is just because I like crossing things off of lists.
