101 in 1001: Monthly Update

One of my goals in my 101 in 1001 list is to blog monthly for a check up of how my accomplishing the list is going! I'm off to a great start and have already started working on things for next month. Not everything will be able to be checked off each month as completed, but just knowing that I have things in order and are being worked on is awesome! I'm very happy with this list and love referring to it for ideas of things to do. It reminds me what is important in my life and encourages me to accomplish the things I care most about! Right now I have had a lot of focus on school and this is definitely helping to keep my priorities in order! And, oh how I love the accountability that the list provides...how wrong is it that I want to make a list happy?  Oh well, whatever gets the job done, right?
So, I put the things I've started and completed in bold and put them in maroon so that they're easy to see. Some of them have been linked to another blog post if I've gone into details on them. Otherwise, I think it's all pretty self explanatory!
