Fall goals

1 Name: Anonymous : 2013-09-23 23:27
Autumn equinox just passed, so it's that time of year again, I suppose. For me, it won't really feel that way until the leaves change. But we should start thinking of what we want out of this season. I know for those of you who are students it's not as easy as summer, but let's do our best!

I'm going to get back some languages I let atrophy at the beginning of this year, and I'm going to finish a programming project I haven't touched in a long time.

I will be happy if I can just pass math class. I would be very content with that.

10 pushups and 10 crunches a day. Every day. Write letters to friends.

I'd like to be able to climb a 5.11c grade route at the climbing gym before fall ends. At the moment I can almost finish a 5.10a without stopping or slipping but the difficulty curve only gets steeper from here.

Read four books and return them to the library in a timely manner.

Month through. Update us on where you are!

I'm >>1; I've got one out of four languages back to a comfortable position and I'm starting on another. Haven't really done much with the programming thing besides some cursory inspection. I also started Couch to 5K, so seeing that through is a new goal.

If you hadn't planned anything, it's not too late to start now!

>>4 here. Unfortunately my climbing partner was in an accident and broke some bones a couple of weeks ago. This means I'll have to stick to the auto-belay routes for a while unless I find a stranger willing to partner up for a day.

I also severely underestimated how steep the difficulty curve really is from this point on, so I think I'll revise my goal to just a 5.10d. At the moment I can almost make it through a 5.10b so I think with a lot of work I can make the new goal before the month is out.

I'm going to try and start working out again. I have nothing better to do.

Also, winter means I do my yearly ritual of marathoning Ergo Proxy in a drunken stupor on a cold night exactly the way I did it when I was in high school.

Once I get back home I'll cath up with the anime that I've missed in the time I was gone. Then I'll really start learning Japanese. It's really emberassing, I've started in late April/early March and I'm still at such a low level, I can't even read manga. Good thing is that I'm in my final year of middle school and I have much more time than others but I should't be this negletic. Learning stuff without a teacher is kinda hard.

My plan is:
Once I come back home I catch up wiht the Kanji and Vocabulary of 2 weeks. Shouldn't take more than 2 to 3 hours including breaks.
Once I'm done with that I learn 25 new Kanji every day and repeat the old ones. Same with vocabulary.
I'll continue to learn writing with Obenkyou. If you have an android and you're learning Japanese I recommend this highly. It's really good for writing practice and it has the grammar from Tae Kim.
As for grammar, I'll read 2 old chapters and a new chapter every day. It'll be a little slower like this but better.

I hope I can keep this up

Um. Question.

It's just something I do.

Because of how I watched it I became so immersed into the setting. I was drunk and exhausted making the nonsense they kept shouting about raison d-etre sound even more bizarre all the while I was freezing because we didn't have central heating.

I can't believe it's been 5 years since I left high school. God, how the time flies.

I would really like to meet more people. I don't really have a lot of close friends, and all and my close ones are dating someone, so I'm always a third, fifth, or even seventh wheel. I think I can do it, I just gotta build up the nerve to talk to people. Who knows, maybe I'll even meet my future boyfriend.

To stop playing any sort of videogame after spending a ridiculous amount of time on them ever since I was like 8 and focus on more important things. It's a waste of time and never ceases to ruin my mood. Today I've taken the first step by deleting all of them from my PC.

Wow, that sounds pretty difficult. Good luck!

( `・ω・´) My goal is to make the dean's list again!

>>12 Same situation here,fight,burn all your energy in something you love, and be interested in others,don't let people forget you cuz you are the third wheel, you are your MAIN heros of your life, no shit.
And if you are a girl, i think it will be more easy to build up a little network of good people, choose them and have fun with them.

>>13 ye good luck for ya,what's your important things anyway?

meine priority objective is to find a first job, and its not a easssy road.

Right now, I really really REALLY want to get above a C+ in all my classes.

I want to start sleeping at night. I usually go to bed in the wee hours and wake up at around 7am, getting about 3 or 4 hours a night, and about once a week I don't sleep at all. On the weekend I sleep 2 or 3 times as much as usual. But I want to discipline myself to consistently get 8 hours a night, or at least 6. I also want to get up earlier, which mean I'll need to go to bed a lot earlier.

This is a really good goal to have. I had one whole summer where I went to bed in the morning hours and woke up around 4:00PM. I felt like crap all the time and the days passed like a blink.

I think autumn's over by most people's reckoning (excepting those who go by solstices and equinoxes, y'all are weird). Can you feel it? Has it snowed yet?

So how'd you make out this season?

I'm >>1 and I didn't make much progress with my initial goals beyond the update at >>6. I'm thinking about whether to cut my losses on some of those goals or extend them to winter.

C25K went great though, today was the second to last day of the routine.

I guess I didn't have any goals and I certainly did not reach any.
I did literally nothing in Fall.

As for the sleeping thing, I did marginally better for about a week, then regressed hard. When I eat, I'm good at saying, 'I could eat more but I really don't need more, so I'll stop now.' But it takes a lot more self control to do the same thing with sleep and wakefulness. I'm so used to sleeping only when I'm exhausted and getting up only when I have to. I need to practice more.

Have you looked into the effects of lighting on sleep? Especially if you're using a computer for most of the evening, check out f.lux.
