101 things in 1001 days   8 comments

So I haven’t made a post in a while since I have been busy finishing up my senior year in high school but I’m going to try and get back into the swing of this (you know besides when I disappear for half a year to train). So I decided that this would be a good way to get me blogging again and also to complete things I have wanted to do and enjoy life just a little bit more. I am starting this one June 5th, my eighteenth birthday, because I feel the day that I technically start the whole ‘adult’ thing would be a great day. So my dead line for all of these is March 2nd 2017. Wish me luck and I will hopefully be writing blog posts along with ever task that I manage to complete.
