100 Things To Do In 2021

Making a New Years resolution sucks. They’re either too vague or too difficult and 80% of people give up on them by February or March. Although the typical execution is flawed, the idea of aspiring to be better by one way or another in the new year is beautiful.

I’m working to become my best self this year, but that’s not my new years resolution. This year instead of making one statement or goal, I resolved to do 100 new things in the new year. Some of the things are challenging physically, some are challenging mentally, and others are just to say that I did it! Will this make me a better person? Who knows, but I’m going to share my thoughts, opinions, and the many funny stories that I believe will accompany these experiences. Check out my list, and let me know what you think will be the most challenging or what will be the most fun!
