Goals for 2011

2010 was kind of a crappy year. It was really good in terms of hobbies, but life totally beat me up.

SO, I'm gonna make a list of what I want to accomplish/work on over the coming year.

  • Get a job or internship or something that'll get me on the road to being independent

  • Really explore what I want to do in terms of a career

  • Keep drawing (for the love of pete, don't be a lazy ass and stop now)

  • Keep writing

  • Keep writing smut (I've always wanted to be good at it, and I think I'll get there if I keep practicing)

  • Clean and organize my stuff

  • Read more books (ilu Aziraphale)

  • Find some way to get back to England (I still regret not swimming across the channel when we were in Paris)

  • Make more friends and be social and all that hooey

  • Get used to driving on the highway

  • Go visit my Dad and family upstate

That's enough for now. Let's just see if I can make it work.

Movie time! First off, I saw Black Swan a few weeks ago and completely loved it. Especially after repeat viewings. It doesn't hurt that Natalie Portman is just hhnng and I am ridiculously hot for dance of any kind.

And earlier this week, I saw The King's Speech. It was adorable. I don't know if that's quite the right word given the context, but man, I could watch Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth hanging out and being bros forever. And WWII setting = very yes.

I approve of the this one and from what I've read I'd say that you are already more than good at it. Hee!

Goals are a good idea, I should really do something like this.

Thank you!
I know that when I read really good porn, I can see the things I'm missing. But I guess one good thing about last year is that I got to the point where I could post mine in public, so that's progress! At least it's something where the practice is fun. XD

I think it's good to set general goals that you can reasonably accomplish, as well as the crazy ones.

I used to be terrified of driving on the freeway, but that didnt last long OTL now I speed around all over the place and have trouble keeping at the limit...

My biggest problem is with merging. I think I don't trust my eyes enough, or something. I just have to stop being a pussy and do it. :/

The majority of it takes place in the years leading up to the war, but it culminates in England's entrance into war. But you should see it because it's pretty awesome! And especially if you like watching members of the royal family curse and roll around on the floor.

By the end that trip, I was willing to do anything to get out of France. I think I'll prooobably take a plane, though.

That's the spirit...make lemonade out of lemons. When you have a bad year, just become more determined to make this year BETTER. YOU CAN DO IT.

Your resolution about driving on the highway reminded me of that scene in Clueless when they get on the freeway by accident and they all start screaming. Don't remember the rest of the movie, but that scene cracks me up every time. I drove on the highway in CA, didn't think it was that big a deal really, but I also have a few more years experience driving ;)

Yeah, people always joke about driving in LA in general. I think the problems usually stem from the high population density, so if you're used to dealing with loads of drivers around you, it's probably not that bad.

    Thank you! If you ever get more mad money, come on down. I can cut a discount for friends. :)
    I can also do custom pieces if that ever interests you!

    Those are super cute. Wish Tery hadn't lost her job and I still had mad money :(
  • 8 Aug 2012, 12:15
    No no, I've just been having a rough year. I usually keep up with my friend's list, though! It's just the last couple of weeks that I've missed. I hope you and Tery are doing well!

    Thank Merlin, starting to think you died....!

    Yeah, most of the people I talked to had a pretty crappy year.
    I hope it's good too!
