100 Things to do in 2017

line-4My 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 it 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. The second is because I need your help! I haven’t managed to think of all 100 cool things to do, so if you have a bright ideas, please tell me! I’ll pick some of the best ones and put them on my list 😀
