Well, today it was pointed out to me (buy a loudmouth on the radio) that the year is now half over. This seems stupid, but in all reality, I wouldn't think about it. For some reason it seems like... mid august should be the half-way point. I can't explain it. I really can't.
My unconscious ignorance aside, I'm taking this opportunity to re-visit my New Year's Resolutions
Get A Job.
Well, I got a few. The first was awful (lated 2 days), the second less awful (Lasted a month or so... mainly because I have a car payment. More on that later.) My current job is my old job I had and lost in October - November last year. I've been here near 3 months now and it goes great. So, this resolution has been well met.
Buy a new car
Back in February I got myself my 'ultimate dream car'. Many thanks to Jarom for co-signing my loan, and to Cloey for letting him. I've been treating my car rather nice. I've probably already washed it more times than Ruckus. I've also vacuumed it out quite a bit. Then I'm always tempted to get the "fragrance" that sprays out of the machine. But I'm just not a fan of fake watermelon smell...
Since I got it, I have added several things to my Jeep Liberty.
1-Cruise Control (quite an adventure)
2-EVIC (Electronic Vehicle Information Center... overhead computer. An adventure in soldering wires into my car's diagnostic port.)
3-Fog Lamps (an adventure in... annoyance.)
Currently, I have most of what I need to install the OEM roof rack side rails, and am in the process of getting an iPod hookup (more on that later). Needless to say, 2 resolutions down.
Do More Stuff.
Easier said than done when you work full time. I have summited a few peaks, and am actually going up to Sunset Peak with hew in about 2 hours. So, I've kinda done more, but it could use more work.
I finished the Hobbit, and Fellowship of the Ring (actually finished that one inside IKEA's kitchen dept). I need to do more. I did well for a while, but not any more. This is officially re-resolved.
I really doubt I'll be able to go to school this fall. I did attend institute sporadically in the first half of the year, so I'll resolve to do better with that.
Meet new People.
I have sucked this one up so far.
Thanks to many in the Larsen clan for helping me get this one out of the way early... and by helping, I mean doing all the work for me.
So, since 3 of them are scratched off, do I have any to replace them with?
I have too much junk. Like the crap that collects on the downhill end of a culvert
. I should probably do something about that.
I am bad with money. That's why I've added so many things to my Jeep.... Maybe I will start this one in a few months. I want a MythTv
. Oh, and a new computer for my own self. Oh, and... well. Lots of stuff. Good thing I make plenty of money for myself. I should probably be saving though. Or making double payments on my Jeep. Ah, well. All is far as long as I break even.
I'm done for now. I lost interest. Stay tuned for more uninspired blogs.
