Task 65: Finish writing the next 100 in a year list

Y’all, I’m so disappointed in myself. I didn’t complete half of the tasks I set out to complete last year. It isn’t that they were hard or unreasonable, I just felt like I had so much more time than I really did. I’m going to add most of the ones I didn’t get to complete to my list for year two and really work hard to get them done.

Today, I’m going to print off my old list and upload this new one in it’s place. This year’s list is a little more adventurous and will definitely pull me out of my comfort zone for some tasks. I’m looking forward to completing them and doing a much better job than I did last year.
