Anybody wanna post a goals list?

Post by Zeturi » Wed Dec 24, 2008 3:28 am

My first post, but I've been reading the forums since about February this year. I found a portable gamecube a while back on the net and it led me here. Since then, I ripped apart two ps1 screens, fried one, stopped halfway with a NES portable, opened and "accidentally" destroyed about a dozen cheap electronics. Oh, and nearly blew up a battery with I unknowingly soldered the positive and negative lines together. :evil:
Anyways, I decided to finally come out of hiding and start posting. My first post is in Forum 42, 'cause where else is it appropriate? I hope I can be good help in the forums, I'm learning all about soldering and pinouts and batteries now.
Anyway's my first post is a goals list. I thought that it might let you guys in on what I'm like, so yeah. I'll probably frequent the forums just about every night unless my sandwich duty at the kafe really drains me. But enough of my crap. Here's my goal's list!

Goals

Important Goals


Either lose 30 lbs, or turn the weight into muscle.

Be able to run for 10 miles straight.

Become inspired enough to write stories again.

Overcoming my social anxiety.

Turn my Sony LCD into an RCA mnitor.

Get my stress under control.

Get enough money to stop pirating games and music.

Learn to play basic cello notes.

Get rid of my foot fungus and extra tooth.

Iffy, not as important goals

Get by burgundy-shirt-and-black-jeans uniform completed

Get paid a decent wage at a decent job.

Have more friends.

Make my backyard garden look better.

Becoming more fluent in Spanish.

Starting college before my midlife crisis hits.

Goals that aren't goals as much as random thoughts

Find a better way to mass-produce quality sandwiches. (Don't ask.)

Start walking more like a person and less like an angry penguin.

Wash my dog more often.

Post more on forums, rather than readreadread until dinner.

Stop giving people odd impressions of me the rare posts I put up.


Anyways, those are my goals. Hate'em? Deal with it.
