Slow progress is better than no progress, right? Welp, that’s just what I’m gonna keep telling myself since I have been moving at a literal snail’s pace with finishing my 101 things in 1001 days list. There are actually quite a few things that I am in the middle of completing… but for now, here are the things I have definitely finished.
31. Star in my own show! I would be chill with cohosting a show as well.
My roommate Slaine and I had been wanting to launch our own show at our university, a weekly update show about all things Sacred Heart University Pioneer Athletics. Then Slaine came up with an amazing idea: a sports talk show with a dash of humor and sass! And, of course, two kick ass hosts. Therefore, I am cohosting the new Pioneer Sports Report alongside my classmate Luke Hetrick, with Slaine directing / producing, and many of our other classmates as cameramen and stage manager.

42. Figure out how to style my hair, so I’ll actually want to do it every day!
If you didn’t notice in the photo above, look now – I chopped 6 inches off my hair! GAD! I’ve been wanting to cut a bit off for a while now, but was terrified, as the last time I cut my hair it was my sophomore year of high school and I was still fairly hideous. But I figured, since I know how to use a blow dryer now, it couldn’t be half that bad. And voila! I chopped it, and am trying out a new middle part (yikes!).
64. Get a dog. And a cat. And maybe something else too. Don’t act like you’re surprised by this.
So… still working on that dog part. But I think two kittens will suffice for now! I’m basically obsessed with Russell and Wilson – they keep me young. Uh, god luv ya.
94. Get a photo I’ve taken blown up and framed for my bedroom.
Can’t help but to say I feel as fancy as Iggy Azalea seeing my own photo nicely hung on our wall! I feel for realz like a real photog. The photo I had blown up was one of my favorite shots of Merlo Field, the stadium at University of Portland where the soccer teams play. Slaine and I wanted a shot of UP that could help us feel close to our alma mater, and also one of the sports there – we are, after all, in a Sports Media and Communications program.
