100 Goals For My Life [A Look Back at 5 Years Ago]

 Junior year in high school one of my favorite teachers offered an extra credit opportunity for anyone who would write out 100 genuine goals for my life. Being the type to never pass up an extra credit opp + one that loves lists I took the challenge. Luckily I kept the list once the class was over, and my mum sent it to me a few weeks ago
