Resolutions…

It’s been just about forever since I last post something on this blog.  I think I have more fun logging in and updating WordPress than actually using WordPress.

Anyway, after the new year, I have my busiest semester of grad school.  I’ll be taking 11 credits.  That’s 3 classes at 3 credits each plus 2 credits of thesis hours.  (After 9 credits, credits are free, and there are 6 required hours of thesis credits for a master’s degree, so I figure that’ll save me $600.)  And to top it all off, I’m going to be trying to work around 30 hours a week.  Don’t ask how I’m going to do it.  I think there will be a lot of boring nights and weekends doing homework.

And then there’s a growing list of things I want to start doing or change.  And since I’ve already decided to kill myself in the name of furthering my education, I figured that I might as well just throw everything on at once.  Maybe I’m hoping that somehow enough goals will make everything happen, like a star going super nova (or am I thinking of a black hole?).  It’s either that or I’m hoping that if I throw enough goals at myself that something will stick.

So, without more ado, here’s a smattering of goals for the new year:

  1. Get homework assignments in early.
  2. Eat out less.
  3. Work 30 hours a week.
  4. Get rid of Facebook (forever).
  5. Blog more.
  6. Blog every day (about anything).
  7. Find a job for after college.
  8. Graduate.

In addition to all of this, before the new year, I want to move my web server to a different AWS region, which will require setting up a new sever just like this one.  Shouldn’t be hard though.  Oh, and I want to get in my fill of video games during the vacation before I start the next semester and don’t have a single moment for myself.

So there you have it.  My New Year’s resolutions.

In other news, I’m currently addicted to How I Met Your Mother.
