Completed on May 14, 2013! I wrote an e-mail to myself to be delivered to my university e-mail on February 9, 2016.
I've achieved my first goal -yay- and started with my second one: keeping a journal of my Day Zero Project. I'll be taking pictures of most of my goals by the way, because I love doing that.
sent 16 Apr 2013 for 2 Jan 2016 delivery via futureme.
idk what i wrote in this tbh
First item completed. Until we meet again.
1/22/13: Wrote a letter for me to open on September 29, 2015. So much will change in the next year but excited to work on my list! :)
I think I may write multiple letters like this throughout the challenge. It would be fun to read my own 'progress reports' as I work on the various goals after the challenge is complete!
12/01/12: Well, I intended for the letter to be detailed, but by the time i got around to writing it, I forgot what I wanted to say, so I just kind of expressed gratitude and pride about whatever we did and outlined a rough plan of how to create the next 1001 days challenge.
Completed 11/26/2012: Printed out my letter, put it in my fire safe, and set a reminder on my calendar to open it!
You were never good at long, lengthy letters (unless they were of the lovesick variety). So instead, here's something short, sweet, and to-the-point:
- You're no stranger to 1001 in 101. You've tried, unsuccessfully, three times before. What happened is that as the months rolled by, your list would drastically change. Things that were once important to you became unimportant very quickly.
- Why did this happen? Because you were a young, naive teenager who thought things like "making music videos" and "being active on Internet forums" were defining things in life. But they ended up being only passing whims.
- This time, you started this 1001 in 101 list to prove others wrong... but most importantly, to prove yourself wrong. To prove that you have finally found direction in life, that you have goals and dreams and are willing to take ACTIONS towards them, not just daydreaming idly about them.
As you finish up your list, I hope that you still feel as strongly about your passions in 2015 as I do now in 2012. I hope that you still have direction, that you feel proud after accomplishing 101 goals (some major, some frivolous). I hope you're set to enter a good BFA program and have things planned for your next several years.
But most of all, I wish you happiness.
I have written my future self a congratulatory letter for completing the 101 challenge. It is in my top bedside drawer.
Passcode for letter file is 1011001
Drafted a letter - surprisingly difficult. Want to try again.
Completed Sept. 13/12
I'm excited for the future me to open this.
This was actually easy - I used FutureMe.org to send myself an e-mail when my 1001 days is done.

I lost it. -_-
My first goal! I made it!
Lotta and my letter to myself
Did this last night quite excited about doing this
Finished the same day the list was started =)
This is the letter.
You began this challenge to make a change in yourself for the better. To show that you can do things, and can live without others. When you began, you knew some would certainly happen, but that does not mean you were not going to try. I know that you can complete this because I am you, simple as that. For the little amount of confidence we have in ourselves,at least we are persistent. We will do this. There are 876 (what a nice number) days left. Nearly two and a half years. That is plenty of time. So when you open this in that time, you will know this. Good luck, or at the time of opening, good job, even if they aren't all reached, you tried.
I'm keeping it in my "special stories" box, for when I need to find it again!
Wrote it today, on 29th January 2010, Friday
3/8/10 - Done! Will arrive at my email on the last day.
