My 101/1001 List

The following is my second 101/1001 list. I completed aprox. half of my previous list. This list is not a list of must dos, but rather a list of things I'd like to do. The list serves as a way to keep me focused. I have until December 10, 2017 to complete my list.(How fitting that it ends on my birthday!) At that time I can reevaluate.

When we moved to Korea I extended the timeline on my list from 2015 to 2017.

The italized items are in progress, the completed items are italized and bold.
