mission failure... we broke up

My girlfriend Lindsey (valentina_marie) and I are going to do 101 things in 1001 days from mission101. We are doing 45 each, and the last 11 for things to do together.

Start Date: Monday 20th November 2006
Finish Date: Monday 17th August 2009

The Mission:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part).

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such as new year's resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

Some common goal setting tips:
1. Be decisive. Know exactly what you want, why you want it, and how you plan to achieve it.
2. Stay Focussed. Any goal requires sustained focus from beginning to end. Constantly evaluate your progress.
3. Welcome Failure. Frequently, very little is learned from a venture that did not experience failure in some form. Failure presents the opportunity to learn and makes the success more worthy.
4. Write down your goals. It clarifies your thinking and reinforces your commitment.
5. Keep your goals in sight. Review them frequently, and ensure that they are always at the forefront of your thinking.

Gee, it seems it takes me forever to get myself to updating :P

Well, first two shows of the musical went great! Haven't acted my part yet, but that'll happen this weekend, twice... I was getting nervous last saturday, but thankfully, the kind woman in charge gave me a good peptalk :P I'll try and post up some pictures after the musical's done with :P

Still very madly in love with my beautiful girlfriend Lindsey ^_^ valentina_marie. Can't imagine a life without her anymore :) She's just so wonderful! ^_^ Just thinking about her makes my heart leap for the sky :) *sigh* I really wish I could use magic or something, so I could just fly or teleport to her at will... :)

I'm currently in a very apathic mood concerning school... First, I'm only in one module this period, in stead of two, because for some crap reason, the module-coördinator didn't know I signed up for the module she's coördinating... -_- Granted, I had to get a different person to get me into the module, since I was too late signing in, but still! Meh, guess I'll have a few free days extra this week...

I'm playing a lot of games lately O.o Legions of Tercia, Kingdom of Loathing, Lords, Quest of Eagles, Realms of Mayhem, Travian... Oh, and then there's Golden Sun and Pokémon yellow on my gameboy emulator :P They're all fun games, even though I keep getting smashed on Realms of Mayhem... Luckily, someone I allied gave me a very nice tip on how to counter the offender :P

Not been to band practice much lately... Not going this wednesday because of an extra rehearsal for the musical, and not gone quite a few times in october because I was either tired or busy... :-/ I really don't like missing out this often, but I just can't help it... :(

There was something else I was going to write, but I forgot about it... Oh well, I'll edit it in when I think of it again

- my throat's been bothering me since friday -_- it's sore, and it hurts a little to swallow... at first it felt like I had a little lump in it, but now it just feels swollen... hope it passes soon :-/

- yesterday I started gettinmg a headache during class >_< was a massive one too... had a bit of trouble walking straight or fast, and it felt as if my skull was about to explode... :( it passed away later that day, though :)

- my friend's friends are weird O.o yesterday, they were playing a strange RPG called Munchkins, with weird-named monsters, such as the Runny Nose, the Internet Troll, Vampire groupies... the equipment cards were also weird, like the cute kneecaps, and holekicking boots (with large pointy things on the toes)... it looked way too weird O.o

- had a day off today ^_^ too bad I had to get up early, to watch the dog... mom went nagging at me too, just because I forgot to do one chore out of 3 -_-

Sorry for the boring title, but I couldn't think of anything better :P

Anyway, week two was a lot less stressing than week one... Monday was frustrating, though, cause one of my teachers was ill, which meant I got there two hours too early -_- After the other class, I thought I had some meeting, moved from this friday, only to find out it's next monday, so I could've been home an hour earlier -_- I had tuesday off, though, which was nice ^_^

Wednesday was pretty much uneventful. Same for thursday, on which I only had one class and a workmeeting with my project group, for which I was two hours late, cause I missed my bus, twice... :-\ I also was a few minutes late for class, cause I had to get my password changed for the school's network. My laptop couldn't connect to it anymore with the old pass.

Today, I had the day off... Except that one in my projectgroup found it funny to plant a small meeting with one of our teachers at 1 -_- unfortunately, my bus-train connection doesn't allow me to be present 10 minutes in advance, so I sat there for a total of one hour, for a 15 minute meeting -_-

Got musical rehearsal again tonight. Should be fun :) Will edit it into this post when I get home :)

I'm playing another round of Starkingdoms, and managed to get myself promoted in my alliance within the week O.o I kept doing officer stuff on my own initiative :P I'm also sector leader this time ^_^ Which is fun, but also comes with a few extra tasks, like keeping some sector enhancements rolling... Still fun though :)

- well, it's that time again: time for an update :P

- first week of school passed... somehow, I pulled through alive :P seeing my friends again was nice, but classes started almost immediately, and on day one, it was made known that a lot more is expected from us this year... oh, woe me :(

- on tuesday afternoon, I tagged along with a few friends who went to play poker :P group of 10 people, 50 cent entry fee, prizes for first, second and third :P to my own amazement, I ended second ^_^

- went into the school's café on thursday afternoon, first time of the year, and had four (pint?)glasses of beer :P when I got home, I heard that my sister can go on with her plans to run the bakery where my dad works! so when I had relaxed a little, and my brother was downstairs, my mom opened up a bottle of champaign, and we emptied it :P liquor day for me! ^_^

- went to musical rehearsal on friday evening. it went pretty well for me ^_^ the lady leading the whole thing took a moment to say "if everyone played as him (pointing at me), we'll be doing just fine". that -so- made me blush and want to hide... >_< me no like the spotlight :P

- school again tomorrow, starting early too, and I had a night with little sleep... >_< had to sleep on an inflatable bed, which has a small leak, cause my sis stayed over, and insisted on sleeping in my room -_- she always does that when she's sleeping over... anyway, besides having to listen to the dishwasher till 1:30 AM and cats making annoying sounds, my mom let the dog in at about 8:30, and the dog just about leaped onto me >_< so yeah, I'm still a bit groggy, and really need to get to bed before 11 PM tonight... >_

Right, first time I'm ever writing anything on the net outside of game-related forums, so bear with me... :P
So, I best start with a little about me... My name's Lambert, I'm a Dutch fellow with a knack for English, gaming, and I enjoy listening most sorts of music (just keep the trance and hardcore FAR away from me -_-)
So yeah, a friend got me into this, after having let me read hers a couple of times... Let's see how long I'll keep this up :)

There, enough of an introduction to those who'll read this for now... Will probably get to writing away stuff later on :)
