101 in 1001

I'm 27 years old. Which I know isn't old but... I feel like time has gotten away from me.  When I graduated college way back in 2008 I immediately joined Teach for America and promised myself that I would teach for two years tops and then go to medical school.  Well, 2 years turned into 3 years then 4 years and now I'm wrapping up my 5th year.

I am leaving at the end of this year.  Actually, I start nursing school a month before the school year ends.  Yes, you read that right; nursing school and not medical school. I'll save that for another post.  And thinking about balancing my teaching job with school for a month gives me extreme anxiety.  So instead of grabbing a case bottle of wine, I'm calming my nerves by making a bucket list.

I got the idea to do a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days from another blogger, Kristyn at Chits & Giggles.  Clearly I don't have 101 things down yet, but I'm working on it.  If you have any suggestions of what to add to my list, please comment!  My end date is January 16, 2016 :)

1. Get a tattoo.
2. Get married.
3. Graduate nursing school.
4. Get 100 blog followers.
5. Host a giveaway.
6. Save $10k. (Almost there now but nursing school will surely drain the account.)
7. Pay off my car.
8. Paint our downstairs bathroom.
9. Run a 5K in 30 minutes or under.
10. Run a 10K.
11. Run a half marathon.
12. Run a marathon.
13. Complete a sprint triathlon.
14. Complete Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred.
15. Complete P90X.
16. Teach my dogs a few tricks.
17. Participate in a 30 for 30 clothing challenge (scrubs don't count).
18. Reach 200 Instagram followers.
19. Reach my goal weight: 125 lbs.
20. Learn to sew a button back on.
21. Learn to make grandpa's candy.
22. Reach 250 Pure Barre classes.
23. Complete a Tough Mudder.
24. Stop texting and driving.
25. Own a pair of Christian Louboutin heels. (Anyone want to buy me a pair? Donate?)
26.  Take boudoir pics.
27. Organize our office/home gym/dog room.
28. Go one year without a speeding ticket.
29. Paint every any room in our all beige house.

PS - I realize that babies are not on this list.  The boo and I have chatted and that will come much later.  At least 5 years, God willing.  We'd like to accomplish a few other things before that happens, such as finishing nursing school, getting him a Corvette and moving into a nicer, bigger house.

  1. No to #1 !
    Yes #21, #24 and #28 !

    1. Mama3Chix, you sound just like my mom with those thoughts! Trust me, I'm working on those last three. It's been about 6 months since my last speeding ticket so I'm halfway there :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. i like this list! next 5K - LET'S DO IT. the tough mudder is more than a 10K I think. So maybe you can cross those both off in October :)

    1. Thanks! I'm thinking of changing it to "30 before 30" since clearly I'm a longs ways off from 101 things. I'm down for doing a 5K. I've got to sign up for one to motivate me to get moving. And the Tough Mudder is 10 MILES so I will probably die when we do it. It'll be awesome :)
