aquatic, the life

in the past year... (exit poll)

i did this last year but karyn asked me to do it this year too...Collapse )

35. Who did you miss? shelly aerostatic. it's been over a year now since i've seen her (august 2003). can that truly be right? :/

36. Who was the best new person you met? becky g., brandy l., dave p., cera, megan f., michael d., paul o., geoff & joy, etc.

37. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2004: Don't believe everything that new boys tell you (like, say for instance that they USED to do coke), especially right when you've only just met them.

38. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:

"Saturday is the best day of the weekend.
Saturday is the best day of the week.
Saturday is the best day of the weekend.
Saturday is the best day of the week.
You can stay up later than ever before.
You can watch some movies and or build a fort.
You can eat macaroni and cheese.
You could even eat a pizza.
Saturday is the best day of the weekend.
Saturday is the best day of the week.
Saturday is the best day of the weekend.
Saturday is the best day of the week.
You can stay up later than ever before.
You can watch some movies and or build a fort.
You can eat macaroni and cheese.
You could even eat a pizza.
God, I really want a pizza.
Saturday is the best day of the weekend.
Saturday is the best day of the week.
Saturday is the best day of the weekend.
Saturday is the best day of the week."

I RESOLVE TO... (aka new year's resolutions y2k5)

take care of myself:
+ continue to read 1-2 books a month
+ buy from from corporations less and independent shops more
+ be more crafty
+ get t-shirts made for m-op (or even make them myself)
+ make a flier for the feb 26th show
+ write more letters
+ get my car's oil changed on time
+ look into volunteering at an animal shelter a few hours a week
+ stop using so many swears (especially around mom - oops!)

be more fit and healthy:
+ exercise at the very least 3 times a week
+ get my 'against demons' or 'lost child' tattoo
+ no longer spread myself too thin between work, love, health, friends
+ make food more healthy and eat out less
+ only eat out once a week during the work week
+ write down what i eat daily in a lil' notebook
+ stop eating so many sweets
+ ONLY drink soda at the movies (seriously, it was getting out of hand a bit)
+ eat less canned/boxed food

manage my cash wisely:
+ be less compulsive with my spending
+ start a savings account that i put at least $50 a paycheck into
+ sell excess stuff on eBay and put the cash into savings
+ keep track of my expenses in a lil' notebook
+ know what's in the cupboards before i go grocery shopping

travel more:
+ re-visit one of the following: boston/amherst, l.a., portland.
+ visit at least two of the following: athens, atlanta, madison, north
carolina, san francisco.
+ get off this continent out of this country at least once: australia, japan, uk, winnipeg

accomplish things i've put off far too long:
+ start a band (finally)
+ write my novel
+ update the make-out party website
+ re-learn silk screening (photo emulsion)
+ start a new zine (reviews, interviews, etc.)

i feel pretty good about this list. i believe that this time round i set realistic goals that i can meet. however, i've decided that because i'm starting all of this goodness in less than a week's time that i am allowed to be a bad girl until then (aka: not going to the gym this entire week). that's my present to myself. wahey!
