Life As I Know It

This is what my life looks like right now.

We are still waiting on some furniture from IKEA to arrive. My life is still in boxes.


Direct Communication

The thing that is wrong with people these days is not using direct communication. It makes life so much easier, for most of my blog readers, we are all adults, I thinkĀ  we can handle the truth.

You looking for a new job? Oh wait, you have a job and you lied to me about who you are working for. That’s fine, my job is better than yours.

You’re too busy to talk to me? Oh wait, you’re too busy pick up the phone? You know what? That’s fine, I have other friends that actually want to spend time with me.

It’s funny because the people that can’t tell the truth are usually negative nancies. I’m happy to hear criticisms if they are true, I try to be open minded. This post is obviously a rant, but a couple people sucking at communication get their own post.

On this serious note, life is a lot easier when people directly answer questions. Cut the crap.

Goals Update: 10.7.09

Just wanted to do a quick post on my goals.

With my new job and the type of schedule I have, I won’t be able to even try to attempt a few of my goals. Here is an updated list. New goals are bolded.

  • read one classic lit book every month for one year (starting october 2009)
  • cook one meal from a recipe book a week for the next year
  • join a gym and workout 4-5 days a week
  • live within a pre-set budget
  • pay off my credit cards and student loans
  • save money in savings account and don’t touch it.
  • cook one meal from scratch a week
  • be early to things. (I used to always be late, now I am “just on time” and I’d like to be early.)
  • take at least 1 picture everyday. (You guys can see more of me then too! Or more of things around me…)

I took out cooking from a recipe, because I just don’t have the luxury of time to pour through a recipe book, pick a recipe, go to the store, get the required ingredients for a recipe and make it. I’ll stick to what I know.

I also took out going to a gym 4-5 times a week because so far this week I have been sleep an average of 5 hours a night. Taking out an hour of sleep to go work out will probably make me crack out, and it’s only the beginning of my new job!

I’m going to try to stick to this list, keep reading my blog and help me stay accountable!
