GOOOOOAAAAAALLLLL!!! (Life goals that is)

You might think this is a thread for soccer didn't ya? Well it isn't! This is a thread à la the "Enter my world" thread and /r/challengeaccepted. You write down a list of what you want to do this day/week/multiple weeks/month/half year etc. and then when the time has gone/is progressing you post pictures of proof. I thought this might be a fun little "get your shit done" thread meanwhile being able to see who are really doing something other than being on c-t/reddit.

I'll start out:

This weeks goals:
1. Go pick up "At the mountain of madness" by H.P. Lovecraft at the library
2. Go pick up a few note sheets for piano
3. Go pick up a few books about tree sorts and woodworking
4. Go pick up a few books on tattoos
5. Read it all and practice piano

Goals of August:
1. Gain a kilo or two in muscle mass
2. Practice guitar atleast an hour a day
3. Practice piano atleast an hour a day
4. Practice gymnastics half and hour
5. Meditate
6. Practice dotwork and woodcut tattoo art

I would say that my goals were met this month. There was a few days where I either didn't manage to meditate or do gymnastics.

1. Gain a kilo or two in muscle mass [✓] - Currently at 65kg, started 63 early August.
2. Practice guitar atleast an hour a day [✓] - Great decision I made forcing me to play more.
3. Practice piano atleast an hour a day [✓] - Used way more than an hour a day due to finding tutorials and practicing.
4. Practice gymnastics half and hour [✓] - It wasn't always easy finding places to do it but I managed.
5. Meditate [✓] - Still haven't gotten the hang of it. The first two weeks I kept falling asleep.
6. Practice dotwork and woodcut tattoo art [X] - I read a lot of books about the styles but only got ot practice it a handful of times.

My goals for September:

1. Be the best tutor I can be for the freshmen. Show them the city life and great things in my city.
2. Score the usual five girls (It's a tradition that you got to give a flask of some alcohol whenever you score a freshmen)
3. Start working out again (I worked out 3-4 times in August :/)
4. Read your text material for class a few days beforehand so you don't get behind.
5. Don't waste all your money at nightclubs.

Accomplishments are a direct result of goals. So are disappointments, sure, but most time you get something done it's a result you setting out to do it.
I dream a lot but never set any goals: let me use this public space to attempt to do so. Before the end of 2014:

1. Cop-semi responsibly. Leave some room in my bank account for paying student loans and accruing some wealth. I'll put this number around $3000 as my spending limit.
2. Start going back to the gym. Really, I need to. Lose 10 pounds. Look good.
3. Create *something*. I've been saying this for the past 5 years and haven't made much progress. Work on a personal coding portfolio. Record some songs. I can't continue spending all my free time just refreshing pointless internet pages. Also inspires my bad spending habits.
4. Find new friends to go drink, have fun, chill with - this is the hardest one, and it's not easy to just 'go out and find friends' when you're no longer in college :(

2. Finish a freelance web project (hoping to this weekend!)
3. Pick up more PHP skills using codecademy - this is my biggest set-back at work.
4. start apartment shopping - starting saving for a bed?!
5. get out hiking more - (been meaning to hike mt monadnock for a while)
6. get out more/establish a core group of friends
7. finally make an appointment for an eye exam - don't know why I'm so incapable of doing this

  1. Success, was 178lbs on Saturday. Time to start bulking.
  2. Failed :(
  3. Failed :\. Ran into a major issue where the html being returned was wrong. And so it's non-parsable. On the bright side I started a personal project in Django I'm having a lot of fun with.

Sept. Goals:
  1. Let's keep the guitar one up here (Learn a guitar song throughout)
  2. Finish reading 1Q84.
  3. Hit under 28 minutes for my first 5k on September 27th.

End of August:

August goals definitely met.

Re-read Infinite Jest and my flaxy teacher also happens to be a huge DFW fan so I've already got a huge up in the class discussions. I actually met my teachers daughter at a concert and just today she was like "my daughter says hello!" and I was like "... Rachel?" and yeah her daughter's name is Katy... So that made me feel bad.

Other than that, things are great. No stress whatsoever, I have an awesome group of friends. A majority of the top 20 or so at our school are all taking very similar AP classes this year so the study groups that have formed are absolutely awesome and being in them is very interesting. Concert companion 'thing' (not a friendship, not a relationship?) is going well and keeps me feeling like I'm on a cloud 24/7.

Things are good.

Working towards all my year goals, too. Though I kind of ditched book club and am focusing on Art Club/Green Club/NHS right now, just got board approval today for a mural to be built so I am SUPER STOKED for that to be honest.

short term
- finish organizing my gmail (seriously i cleared out SO many emails the other day, my labels are all organized and color coded and there are only 21 emails in my promotions tab and 1 email in my social tab--but now i need to work on my inbox)
- ebay all the old shit i have lying around for extra spending $$$
- it's diet time
- learn to give up acrylic nails and start playing guitar again
- get a haircut
- save up for the new ipad mini
- oh and also complete my itunes--got a new hard drive and am starting from scratch. feels amazing, i'm making sure all the genres are properly organized and everything has album art and is 320 and all the artists and songs are labeled correctly and there isn't shit like "www.mAdHiPHoPbEatZ.com" in the notes sections. but it's fucking slow going.

long term/life
- i've honestly realized my biggest goal in life is to find a job that i am excited to go to every day
+ my dream, dream dream is to work a job where i set my own hours and don't really ever have to go into an office
