Between December and the start of March, I was able to mark just a few things off my list. I was able to check off a couple other things (even though the exact dates fell outside of my 1001, which officially ended on February 27).

Adventure, Fun, & New Things

1. Travel to five new places (at least two new states). Traveled to Las Vegas for a vacation with the hubby. Finished up the fifth place with Mobile, Alabama. 

9. Ride in a plane with Andre. We took our first flight together on the above-mentioned trip to Vegas! 

18. Go to a grown-up formal event. Was originally thinking of galas, but I think hubby's holidays parties would could for this - the most recent one was a prom!

Health, Beauty & Fitness

37. Get my A1C under 7.0 and maintain it. I haven't talked much about this on the blog, but I switched from insulin injections (which I've been taking for 20 years) to an insulin pump, and it's totally changed things for me. I'll talk more about it at some point in a collective post.

Books & TV

78. Complete a reading challenge each year. Finished up that remaining year with the 2018 Popsugar reading challenge

Create & Learn

84. Create a one second a day video for one full year. It didn't totally turn out how I'd planned, but I did it - 2018!

Career & Development

99. Complete my Master's degree in Student Affairs/Counseling with a 3.5 or higher GPA. I'm all set to graduate in May 2019. It's coming up, but working full-time and going to school part-time had some unexpected twists. But I'm doing it!

101. Present at a conference. I DID IT! I presented at a regional advising conference, and it went really well

To wrap up, I think my first round of 101 in 1001 was fairly successful. I completed about 40% of the goals on the list. Realistically goals evolve and priorities shift. I'm excited for what I accomplished and I'm pumped to start another round.
