Ambitious Am I

Well, this is just a little post updating all my ambitions and everything and talking about some recent discoveries about things I can do to be even more ambitious in my life.

Update on Grades:
I didn't get a 4.4 weighted GPA, sadly. I only got a 4.2. So I threw a party anyways. For myself. I think I got some pizzas too.

Update on Job:
I don't remember if this was an original goal I talked about, but it is now. I HAVE ONE! It's at Albertson's and I really really like it. I actually have work today and I'm just whiling away the time until I have to get ready and go.

Update/Discovery 1:
It's becoming a bigger and bigger thing for me to continue to regain flexibility. Also, besides the fact that I just find it awesome to be super flexible, there are many health benifits I didn't consider before. Like less strain on things and healthier joints. Which is a big thing for me because I already have bad knees and hips that sound like popcorn. So that's good. I think I want to have my splits by the end of the school year. And I think it's possible if I continue to stretch as often as I have been.

Discovery 2:
I can go to college now! Not graduate high school early, but go to college now. PCC (Portland Community College) has a program for finishing high school there and getting your diploma as well as taking other classes you can get credits for and work towards an Associate's Degree in whatever. I can basically start college while still in high school. I'm really really excited.

Discover 3:
NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month). It's really fun to say, firstly. But secondly, it goes on every month of the year and it's a challenge to post on your blog every day of a month. So you can do just some months of the year. Like if I'm on vacation, I just don't do it that month. There's themes of the posts sometimes. But it looks really cool and I might do that.

Well, I guess I'm going to go get ready for work and head out.
Until next time!

New Years Resolutions 2011

Well, this is... sad. I haven't posted for, what? Two whole months? Longer?
I'm ashamed of myself. Not that anyone actually reads this thing, so whatever.

I got a job. By the way. It's awesome. I have income now. And for the record: Taxes. Suck.

Well, Christmas and the New Year have come and gone and it's time I've gotten my New Years Resolutions written. (Actually they're already written.... now I'm just putting them in uber cyberspace print so I can't leave them laying there and do nothing about them... I expect whoever it is out there to annoy me and poke and prod me if I stop doing any of these)

As always I have ten resolutions, so here they are:

1) Buy a car.
2) Learn to drive stick.
3) Win JulNoWriMo '11 (Fourth year running? Maybe fifth? Geez...)
4) Get a weighted 4.0 Junior Year
5) Hold a job.
6) Stretch at least twice a week. Gain more flexibility and strength.
7) Stay more organized.
8) Help Mom with house makeover.
9) Finish 1 journal.
10) Finish Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead.

Yeah. That's about it.

I have no idea what I'm going to be doing with JulNoWriMo, but it's going to be something. 50,000 words of something! It's going to happen.

Hopefully I'll start posting more again. Because that was kind of unacceptable.
