In August 2020 I made a 101 in 1001 list. I actually worked pretty hard on it and put a lot of thought into it. But life has been unpredictable for the past 18 months and my priorities have shifted. Many of the goals aren’t as important or achievable as they once were… So I’m going to press pause on the 101-in-1001 and shift to a 35×35 schedule.
I’m planning to reuse some of my unachieved goals because there are quite a few I’d like to see through… just not all 101. So here is my revised list for my 35×35. I have a few years to accomplish these; I’m currently 31. I think.
- Re-read HP 4, 5, 6, & 7 illustrated versions; as available
- Stop biting my nails FOR GOOD
- Stop scrolling in bed
- Create a home master list

- Visit Disney World with K&M
- 4 new NASCAR tracks

Some of these are big, some are not. Even with the ‘demic going on, I think I can achieve many of these. You can find this list under the tab at the top of the page (35 x 35).
Any big goals you’re working on this year (or in the next 4)?

Wish you can achieve all your goals.
These seem very achievable.
I stopped biting my nails when I had my wisdom teeth out and physically couldn’t bite them for a while.
My goal for this year is to keep the baby alive 😂. Joking aside I’m still working on my 40 before 40 list. And it’s just occurred to me I’ll be 40 NEXT YEAR!!
I’ve quit biting my nails off and on for years, but I can’t seem to kick it completely. I’d like to/I need to.
Ummmm. Take it from me, keeping baby alive is a great goal! Lol! Not for the faint of heart, ha.
These are all such great goals! I, too, am determined to stop scrolling before bed. (And also before I get out of bed in the morning — that just sets my day off on the wrong note.)
I moved my phone across the room to charge at night and bought a sunrise alarm clock for next to my bed. It’s helped curb a lot of scrolling so far!!

I love this idea! I should do a 55×55… give me 5 years to do some THINGS… meet some goals.
Of course, I’m gonna push you to do the Disney trip – SO FUN
We’ve been investigating Ft. Wilderness. K wants to take the camper down there. Lol. I want to stay in a hotel. Ha.
I like this list! I have been battling scrolling as one of my intentions the past two weeks. I was doing well then Mae had this eye thing that had me up all night and that ruined me. We are done with eyedrops every two hours overnight so back on the horse!
Do you have any blog friends close? If you blow through Philly let’s lunch! LOL
I moved my phone across the room to charge. It was helping… Now I just scroll until I get a burst of energy to walk it across the room and plug it in before falling asleep. LOL. Still working on it… Ha.
No one close by! If and when I make my way that direction, I will definitely hit you up!!
These are great! I did a 30×30 list and it was so fun to check off items. I turned 30 in june of 2020 so a few that I put off (like some trips) did not get achieved haha. Maybe I’ll make a new one for 35 as well!
Yeah, I went from a 30×30 to 101 in 1001 back to a 35×35. LOL. I think many of the trips/vacations have hopped from one list to the next. Hopefully they get checked off soon (before 35)!
