101 Things in 1001 Days

This list was inspired by Mackenzie Horan's list on Design Darling! I started writing this quite a long time ago but decided not to publish it until it was completely written out because my slight OCD-ness wouldn't let me post an un-finished post.

I know it should have been posted a while ago considering I officially finished writing it a month ago, but things have been busy and it sort of slipped my mind that "Hey, you need to publish your 101 in 1001 list!"
