101 in 1001: Revised

Hi Kara,

I’ve felt discouraged lately to continue to do this list. So I’m copying and pasting my old list on to here, updating the tasks that I have done, deleting some that no longer apply to my life, and then I’m going to leave some spaces blank. And that’s okay. Because I don’t know how much I will change in the next year and a half.

I never thought in a million years that I would be headed to Japan for my honeymoon – but here I am and I’ve never been so excited for a trip before in my life.

I never thought that I could honestly say that I have no interest in going to Disneyland for a whole year. (No more Aladdin, no more train, NO MORE HOPE JOY LOVE ANYTHING HAPPY LIKE SNAILS AND BUTTERFLIES AND CATS AND I’M REALLY MAD AT YOU DISNEYLAND OKAY)

So here is my revised and holey 101 in 1001 list.
