So a friend of mine posted a 101 things in 1,001 days list of things he would like to do in 1,001 days and I loved the idea, and decided it would be a great way to help me cope with my Thyroid Cancer diagnosis, so I made my own. I’m loving this experience and I’ve already faced one of my biggest fears (a ferris wheel). Here are my 101 things. **** denotes that they are completed. ORANGE denotes in progress.
