List 5- My 101 Things  
This is my fifth round of 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days goals.This time, I really want to challenge myself, but I still want to try to beat the previous records (hard as that will be to do). I also decided to make a number of items on my list with the theme "five" in honor of my fifth list. I'm ready to have some fun and do some work for the next 3 years! Also, technically, 2 of my things are "do 5 things from a list" sorts, so really it's more like 108 Things in 1001 Days, but who's counting?

My successes in previous years: list 1- 50 done; list 2- 67 done; list 3- 86 done; list 4- 90 done. Think I can beat 90 this time around?

I will indicate the items on this list as I accomplish them. I shall keep this journal updated as I work towards these goals, with pictures/links whenever possible. Entries in bold are ones I have completed. Entries in italics are ones in progress, which are taking a while to complete. Entries that are struck out are ones I have failed. Entries with * were completed during the grace period before my next list began.

Start Date: Saturday, July 7, 2018
Finish Date: Saturday, April 3, 2021
