So it has been one month since I started my 101 in 1001 list! As part of creating this list, #100 is that I do a blog update once a month to show my progress. I love having a list of goals that I can turn to when I need a little inspiration or have an itch to try something new. Even though I have only had this list for a month I am proud of all the accomplishments that I have made so far!
#1: Inspire someone else to start their own 101 in 1001 list
My friends Sara and Allison started their own 101 in 1001 list! Sara and I worked together at Her Campus Bucknell and Sara was lucky enough to interview Mackenzie Horan as part of a Campus Celebrity piece. Since this interview and the creation of my own 101 in 1001 list, Sara decided to take the plunge and make her own list! My friend Allison also created her own 101 in 1001 list. Although she does not have her own blog (yet!) she decided to compile her own 101 in 1001 list after reading mine! I am so happy that my little blog has inspired two people to create their own list! You may not think two is a big deal, but it means the world to me!
#2: Help a friend start their own blog
Shortly after creating All Shook Up my friend Moira reached out to me about blogging. Moira and I met while I studied abroad in Sydney, and I was more than happy to extend my advice about what I have learned so far. Moira has created her own fashion blog that is in its very early stages and I couldn’t be more proud! Since she just finished a semester of university she has not had a ton of time to devote to blogging but I cannot wait to see where she takes it!
#19: Visit 5 museums
Okay so technically I have not completely checked this off, but I have made progress! I visited the Newseum this month so now I have four more museums to see. I think it is just as important to show what I have done to work towards a number on the list as it is officially completing it.
#37: Invest in a DSLR camera
If you haven’t noticed that my latest posts are filled with photos than let me just say…I have a new camera! My graduation gift was a beautiful camera that I take out any chance I get! I am completely new to photography and for now I am just having fun wandering around and snapping shots of anything that catches my eye. #44 on the list is to take a photography class and I hope to get on that soon so I have a better understanding of this new hobby!
#45: Organize my computer files
Okay so this is not the most exciting number on the list, but it is a pretty important one. I had not backed up my computer files in…well…a very long time. I finally bought a hard drive to save everything onto and am now consistently backing up all of my work. I have also reorganized my files and made sure that I know where everything is on my laptop. No longer do I have multiple “Random” folders filled with documents that I cannot even remember writing. Again not the most exciting, but I’m glad that I can check it off!
If you ask me, 5 out of 101 is not a bad way to start off my first month into my 101 in 1001 list! I hope to keep up this momentum and continue to cross off my different goals! If you haven’t already created your own 101 in 1001 list I cannot recommend it enough! Try it out and see what happens, it may come to inspire you as much as it inspires me!
