101 goals in 1378 days...

Or... what I want to do before graduating from medical school.

That's right. My list is finally complete, only a month and a half into the school year. That's okay, I'll manage somehow.

A few notes: Nothing on this list has to do with academic goals. I still have academic goals, but saw no reason to put them on my list. There are a few things related to med school, but nothing academic. I left room for three goals to be added every year, as priorities change and whatnot. Some goals that I've actually done prior to today will not be marked complete unless I can provide photographic proof, as per goal 100. The categories are kind of arbitrary, so the goals don't always fit perfectly in the categories. Sorry. The number in brackets indicates how many subgoals there are in that goal. For instance, I can call 'donate hair' complete after one donation, but it will take 4 donations to mark 'donate blood' complete. Some goals are marked 'Private Goal'. These are goals I do not want to list on my public list (this one), but may talk about under the filter. Depends on how I feel about it.

And finally, this list will only be updated as goals change or are added.
