It won't be my first paycheck, but in the next coupe months, one full paycheck is going into savings!
I have a job. I can do this. :)
I can hardly believe it, but I'm getting there!

I went on a 20-mile bike ride, but that doesn't take very long.

Jessica

Jessica

I've got a dozen resumes from which I might choose, now. I've resolved myself to the fact that it's going to change with every job application.
Jessica
Note added to goal Improve my posture
Not leaning so close to computer screen.
That is, 5 people with children by way of introducing them to "Montessori Madness!" by Trevor Eissler. I've already annoyed my childless friends to no end.

Note added to goal Get a massage
Got a massage last Wednesday and will be getting another one next week.
Jessica
Note added to goal Stop shaving my legs
I quit shaving my legs in October of 2009, and a razor has not touched my legs since. It's so nice not worrying whether or not I missed a spot, because I know it's all there, and if it wasn't supposed to be there, it wouldn't be.

Visited Appleton Public Montessori. I wish I could have attended one of these schools when I was a child.
I don't mean to brag, but he is pretty awesome.

It's difficult to measure on your own, but you might notice decreased neck tension as a result.

Jessica

Mo Willems. Creator of "Sheep in the Big City".
If I'm only going to average six hours per night anyway, I'd like it to be from midnight to six rather than six to noon.
Jessica
Note added to goal Copy VHS to DVD
There are certain movies that can't be found on DVD.
Jessica
Note added to goal Run a 5K race
I won't be "racing". Just participating. Taking in the sights, the sun, the dust as people rush past me...
This is my natural state when I'm traveling alone.
It's rather rewarding.
I have a couple friends who enjoy doing this. :)

A requirement for life itself.
I'm sure I've seen more than 10 in my lifetime.
Jessica

Seattle Sonics vs whichever team Kobe Bryant was on.

Mind you, this wasn't planned.
It's called COLLEGE.
Baumholder, Germany. 3.5 years.
Type O. If you can donate doubles, they appreciate it. This is the most common blood type!
Jessica
Note added to goal Visit London
Visited twice. Once with my band/choir classes, then again with my family. Not bad for a young, penniless American, neh?
All of them. Abridged!
Jessica
Note added to goal Go to Six Flags
Great America (x3), Over Georgia (x2), Over Texas, Discovery Kingdom
They were actually very good.
It's just more efficient to have it done at a professional garage. In addition, they also rotate my tires and check the brakes in half the time it would take me to change the oil.
Jessica
Note added to goal Audition for a play
The director (teacher) had favorites, so I didn't have a fighting chance.
Jessica
Note added to goal Quit shaving my legs
Quit the silly social habit in October 2009.

Jessica
Note added to goal adopt a child
This is our ideal way to "start a family". We feel we need to finish growing up first, though. "But it isn't the same as having your own!" many have told me. I'm sorry that they're so bound by archaic beliefs that you're only bound by blood.

I still don't have a dog...
Jessica
Note added to goal Donate blood
I was 17 years old for my first donation.

Jessica
Note added to goal Go to a Packers Game
I saw this:
