haha nice!!!

How impulsive are you? You think you'll be able to maintain your score? Or are you in danger of opening up a line of credit and splurging or something?

I had a good credit score for a very short period of time once...lol, I'm not so good at controlling myself when it comes to money

Re: Big Successes

Started my next semester of college in August, and:
  • Made myself do at least 8 school assignments each week for the first couple of months. As a result, I now have 3 As and a B+, and I only need to do 5 or 6 here on out to keep that momentum. At this rate, I’ll have my A.S. by the end of next summer, and my B.A.S. a couple years later.
  • Started exercising heavily 4-5 days a week, and mildly on other days. I’m focusing better now, and everything feels less stressful. Everything. My greatest regret from high school is that I quit exercising regularly after I quit the track team. I felt like I didn’t have enough spare time, but you only need to set aside 30-60 minutes to see the benefits, and they’re more than large enough to compensate for the lost time.
  • The beauty of it is, amphetamines make exercise easier. They increase stamina, strength, and pain tolerance, which is why they’re banned in professional sports. In return, exercise makes stimulants work better. It’s so simple that I can’t believe I didn’t take advantage of it sooner.
  • Added meditation to my daily schedule. It’s not some mystical cure-all for psychological issues, but it makes it easier to experience emotions without getting carried away by them.
  • Started writing regularly again.
  • Have a girlfriend now. It’s an online relationship, but I’ve learned to accept the opportunities that arise for me.

Re: Big Successes

Couple of good things done today.

got some tubing for my oxygen machine...so I can start using that again.
(Not to be confused with my cpap machine...which I've used every single night since I've had it).

And I had a lady from my therapy center come over today who's going to start helping me with all sorts of things to try and get my life back in order a bit.
One thing she wants to do is to help me get my apartment clean. And I mean clean! Not just picked up.
She's willing to do things really slowly...like working on things for just 1 hour per week for now.
Today I picked up all the trash on my kitchen counters (there was quite a lot!) and she swept my kitchen floor...and then we moved some boxes full of stuff out of the way in my living room and gathered the small amount of trash in there as well.

It's really made a big difference!

She'll be back on Tuesday

Re: Big Successes

I am going to work freelance and this is really shaping up nicely.
I get assistance through the french unemployment agency for this.
So, this morning I got up at 7 am. Because I'm excited about my project and looking forward to my "workday".

Re: Big Successes

I decided that I am going to work hard to develop friendships via Meetup and a new church I am attending.


I decided that I am going to go back on eHarmony to find that special someone.


These are major successes since there was a time not too long ago where I was numb to these type of normal things.

Re: Big Successes

It took 38 years of work, 10+ years to get an appointment with a Federal Judge, losing both parents, barraging three presidents and all of the congressman, senators and who-has until some guy in MN sent me what was missing-unhappily at that- but I won. I won. And now the Government is shutdown good thing I am patient. But, my ship is coming into port. It really is. Never give up.
