Just because I haven't been blogging it, doesn't mean I haven't been working.
I didn't check the posts but I remember I set out for a couple goals this term:
1. Go to the gym
2. Do well in school
3. Write an EP
4. Quit Video Games.
I'll keep it simple and straight:
1. Go to the gym
Strangely, and faithfully, I have been going to the gym to lift and run 5 days a week for the last 16 weeks. Today, I celebrate 4 months of pure consistency of going to the gym! Woop Woop! I just ended my Beginner's lifting, ending with these totals at the end of the period:
To make this juicier, I am prepared to put up before/after pictures of me either at the beginning of summer, end of summer and at the end of the year. And to make it even sexier, I will be wearing my pink-stripped boxers for all of them for the ladies ;)
2. Do good in School
After my Winter term, I came out of the 2nd trimester with a 2.1 GPA. Figuring that I struggled with physics and was carrying 19 credits, I feel like I had slipped behind rather substantially. Luckily, I'm holding strong with what I believe is a 3.5 GPA this current term. I just need to hold it strong for another 6 weeks!
3. Write a Post-Rock EP
Currently, All my songs will be much like Frankenstein: I have several pieces, chord progressions, melodies, ideas that are just fragments that will end up becoming songs. I'm hoping to get it together and recorded soon (soon being before the end of the year).
4. Quit Video Games
Due to the sheer stress at school, there is no way I can avoid them. All my friends are gamers and I grew up on it. I have cut down on the amount of playing time substantially and I'm happy about that, but nothing makes me happier than playing a good game of Starcraft 2 with a friend from back home on a Saturday afternoon before I head out for the night.
In a strange act, a fellow floor member who is very good at a game called Bloodline Champions is trying to make a professional team and has asked if I wanted to join. It might be a good chance for me to make some cash while I'm at school. We'll see how that goes.
Welp, thats all I have to say. I'm prepared to buy a gym membership for the summer when I head home and I hope to continue on these goals I have set out for this year!
