Short Term (<6 months) goals
« on: 21 May 2013, 13:18 »

Life goals take a long time, here's a thread to discuss short term goals. The stuff you want to get done in less than 6 months or so.

1. Learn how to make sealing wax and signets and make wax seals.
1a. Learn how to cast pewter so I can make pewter signet rings.

Make 10 paintings. Hang said paintings in an exposition. Maybe make a book of said paintings and some stuff?

My short-term goal is just to get around to hanging all the old paintings I inherited a few months back.

Also, to finish painting this damn 160-yard fence outside my house. Almost completed one side...

move into new place only to have to see about renewing or finding another new place 5 months later, all while catching up on loans and not going broke.

Learn to cook a bit better, and to keep my apartment clean.  IT IS SO CLEAN RIGHT NOW.  It hasn't been this nice since I moved in.  I feel like an adult! 

Start drawing again.  I used to be pretty good at it, but haven't really practiced since high school.

Start my tattoo-getting process.  I'm still not really sure what I want, but an artist friend has agreed to work on it with me.

Wait, failing a test gives you more time in the army? Wouldn't they prefer people who can pass the test to make up their armed forces? :psyduck:

Fail test - obviously useless for real world that test relates to - place in military instead.

I suppose "obviously useless for real world" translates as "we cannot milk him for taxes" in this case  :roll:

Yeah, and I guess it'll be much worse, considering the mess RTE is making. Thanks.
