101 in 1001

I found this really cool idea on another photographers website.  Gail Werner is a photographer, like, a real photographer.  I ran across her blog a few months ago.  She was traveling all over Europe and all I could think was -Gah, I want to do that.  Travel Europe and take photos.  Perfect!

From there I looked at her past posts and I love what she does.  Her photos are crisp, young and colorful.  But what I really liked was this idea “101 in 1001.”  She apparently got the idea from another photographer.  Basically, it’s a list of 101 things you want to do in 1001 days…which roughly adds up to 3 years.  This seemed so cool to me.  I’m in my last year of college and there is so much I want to do!  The best part is, the next three years are probably going to be the best time to do it.

So here it is, my 101 in 1001 list:
