Ohh We're Half Way There

So I'm at about 500 days into my 2nd 101 in 1001 Challenge.  Seriously, 1001 days is a LONG LONG time!  I always start out with the best intentions but as time goes on I forget about certain goals that I've set for myself.  When I started this 2nd challenge I was about a month into my 1st year of teaching.  Now, I'm 4 months away from finishing up my 2nd year of teaching and at the end of the challenge I will have just finished my 3rd!  Not that it's really an excuse as to why I am not doing so hot but a lot can change in 1001 days.  Hell I'm not where I thought I'd be 8 months in the world am I supposed to know what exactly I'll be able to do/want to do 1001 days in the future? (That's about 2 years & 9 months by the way)
