      My List of 100 Things to Achieve in 2017

      A couple of my friends and I decided to do a list of things we want to do in 2017. It’s kind of like a bucket list but it can include things you’ve done before and want to do again. The purpose is to motivate us to get off the couch (or in my case away from the computer) and actually get shit done! Everything on the list has to be crossed off by the end of the year.

      I decided to post this (somewhat personal) list on my blog for a couple of reasons… The first is so that I’ll be accountable to all you guys and will actually have to do it.

      NOTE: I’m doing this again in 2019 🙂
