When my first list began, I was going into my last semester of high school. During that time I picked a college, moved to a new state, and chose my major! I am so excited to begin my second list, and I can't wait to see all that I accomplish during these next few years too. During this list I am going to get my bachelor's and be just a month short of getting my master's by the time it ends. Due to being is school (and grad school) during this whole list, I didn't include anything too crazy. I did include a few "reach" items to challenge me, but for the most part it is things I can do while being a busy student!

Wish me luck!

  1. This is so cool! I'd love to do something similar :)

  2. Love the 'For others section'- they're so thoughtful! I can't believe you thought of so many- I'd struggle with 10 as good as these to dos. Good luck with it all xx

  3. Very cool! A little intimidated to do one, myself!
