101 In 1001 Days

A while back,  while learning more or bullet journaling, I discovered a few people on Instagram (can’t remember who it was) made a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. I thought “oh,  that sounds cool. Why don’t I do that? ”

Is always something going on or a restaurant that I want to try or something. I tried things of free events I could go to or things I could do that didn’t require an admissions fee. I think I’ve created a nice list of those things in and around Milwaukee with a decent selection of restaurants in the mix. Here is what I’ve come up with…

As you can see, there are still some holes to be filled in to get to my 101. I started this on August 1, 2016 and I should be done on or around May 28, 2019 to be within my 1001 days target. Now while completing these things, I will continue working towards completing my 40 by 40 and 50 by 50 bucket list.
There are guidelines that some people go by when putting together their 101 in 1001. The only guideline I set for myself was to set task/events/activities that I can take photos of so that they can be shared on this medium. To see some of the guidelines check out Just One Girl Revolution.
