50 in 555 Update!

If you remember a while back, I did a post on 50 things I want to do in 555 days. Well believe it or not, it’s been 213 days since that post. So since I’m close to half way through I thought I’d update y’all on where I’m at. Using the handy dandy calculator (linked below) my completion date is Wednesday, January 20, 2017!

So here’s the deets laid out…
Start Date: July 20th, 2015
Today’s Date: February 18th, 2016
End Date: January 20th, 2017
Total Items: 50
Total Complete So Far: 18
Total Left To Do: 32

Yikes looks like I have some catching up to do in the next 342 days! haha So going through this list I realized that financially, some of these things probably won’t happen. BUT that doesn’t mean I won’t try!
