Dead Blog

If you want to kill your blog, annihilate it. May I recommend going back to school.

Don't get me wrong. I'm glad I went back to school. Just between that and everything else, it doesn't leave much time for blogging.

Well its been an interesting few months... I'd just thought I review my resolutions for the year.

1. Eating Healthier.
  • Eating Breakfast(Check, Usually this is two or three slices of whole grain toast with butter)
  • Bring a lunch (I'm doing very well here as well. Of course losing my job and being on a tighter budget helped this one along)
  • Cut back on soda (I haven't done this one very well at all, I'm up to 3 or 4 cokes a day)

Two of three in this category. Not bad... not great.

2. Exercising More
  • Walk a lot (I walk less now than I used to)
  • Exercise More (my new job is about a 100 yards from a gym, I just got a membership now I just need to go)

I'm not sure how to count this. I walk less because I don't ride the bus, I don't ride the bus because it wouldn't work out with my new job. So its a failure but there isn't much I can do about it. As for the gym membership, I just need to go (got the membership yesterday). Zero for two. For now.

3. Get Enough Sleep
  • overall I'm doing ok
  • but finals week I only got 29 hours over a 7 day period, 56 hours would be ideal (8*7)

I still could do better on this, though I am doing better than I was.

4. Earn Straight A's
  • So far so good

It was a close one this time. The layoff really affected my motivation early in the semester. Although I earned A's, it was just barely. Toward the end of the semester I really got my mojo back. My friend was named valedictorian (Congrats Matt) and that really reminded me of my goal. I feel pretty motivated going into the summer semester. I should graduate next April. (Under one year left)

5. Look Presentable
  • I feel like I'm doing pretty well on this

Job hunting and a new job have really helped me adopt a new habit here.


Well, the resolutions are doing pretty well on the whole, but there is still work to be done.

In other news. The new job is nice. I bought a new-to-me car (the subject of another post) and a new attachment to my grill (a side fire box, brisket anyone?).

So how is life for you?

You know the funny thing? I was thinking you were dressing nicer, but totally forgot it was one of your resolutions. Bravo!

It sounds to me like you're doing awesome, all things considered.

Another blogger buddy of mine, *pixie*, wants to make her own sushi. I'll be sending her your way.

Matt- Thanks!

HG - Thanks!

Nobody- Thanks I feel like I've actually made some progress on my resolutions this year.

I've seen *pixie* around, she seems pretty cool. I'm happy to give her any pointers.
