101 in 1001

I don't know if any of you have ever seen Mackenzie's Blog, but she just completed a challenge she calls 101 in 1001. It's where you make a list 101 goals to be completed in 1001 days (roughly 2.75 years). A New Year's resolution list of sorts. I love making lists so i thought i'd try it. This list will hopefully be completed in September of 2016, aka my freshman year of college (absolutely crazy for me to conceptualize). My goals will probably change a bit and will constantly be edited, but for now, these are 101 goals for a sophomore junior senior in high school
