101 in 1001

I was casually surfing the internet, as you do, when I became inspired by the 101 in 1001. It is a list of 101 things that you’d like to accomplish in 1001 days or less. So basically, it’s a bucket list with a deadline.

I used my calculator to work out how long 1001 days actually is: 1001 / 365 = 2.742465753424658. Therefore, after my superb calculation skills, I found out that 1001 days is equivalent to 2.75 years. So by the time my 101 in 1001 list expires, I’ll be 18 years old. Crazy how time flies.

I’ve been drafting this post since the 27th September and I’ve realised that I’m really struggling to find things I want to achieve before I’m 18 and a half. Let alone, half the things I’d like to achieve, I can’t even attempt to do in 1001 days like attend university. I CAN’T BELIEVE I’VE ACTUALLY MANAGED TO COME UP WITH 101 THINGS!
