My NEW 100 In A Year List (2014-2015)

Every year for the past three years, I’ve participated in the 100 In a Year project. This project was brought to my attention by another blogger and since I found out what it was and what it was designed to do for your life, I’ve been hooked.

Most of my 100 In A Year list articles are published exclusively on my personal blog, The Jessica Diaries, but every now and then I’ll include one of them on too. I just wanted to share with you all what I’m hoping to accomplish by this time next year.
