101 in 1001

Take two. I attempted my first 101 list between 2011 and 2014. Here’s what I learned. Time for a new list. Some things that I never finished on my first list got carried over. Other things reappear.

    Hey – I might be able to help with #32. I’ve been thinking a lot about reading the Bible in 90 days. Yep! The entire bible! It takes a time commitment but I have a reading plan. Are you interested in doing it together? We could see if anyone else out in Facebook-land would want to join us

    • maybe i could join you for part of it? i have a 6 month reading plan that i’m on, but i’d be willing to speed up once you’re at the part i’m at as long as there’s accountability‚Ķ if anything, it would probably get me a little more on track for where i should be in my reading plan haha. i’m in 1 kings + the middle of john.

  • Okay. Instead of my 30×30 list, I’m going to do this, as it’s closer (2ish years instead of six) so I’m more inspired to do it. YEAH. I’m excited!!!

    I’m not as excited about the Oscar movies this year. I’ve only seen Brooklyn, The Danish Girl and Spotlight. All were very good in very different ways, but Brooklyn is by far my favorite. I don’t really have any interest in the others aside from Room, and I’ve heard it’s a particularly hard watch so I’ll probably wait for DVD.

  • I’m thinking about making one of these again, but the thought of how old I’ll be in 1001 days is a deterrent haha
