talkingmotorrad: role model for the ages- no seriously (by acidicpop @ lj) ({dis} it's not really cheating)

So a bunch of my friends were creating dreamwidth accounts and I was like "you know what, fuck it, let's do this thing" and thus [personal profile] talkingmotorrad was born. ~Tada~ Feel free to friend/add me there!

I've been meaning to update for the longest time but I just... never got around to it. I hope to post more this new year but ehh I always say that so who knows?

Anyway 2011 happened and what a fucking year. There were some high highs and some low lows, like lol really low lows. My depression hit it's peak, my relationship with my mom was torn to shreds, and I spent most of the year feeling like I wasn't able to do anything.

However, this year I also went to Feelingscon in NC to meet up IN REAL LIFE with nerd friends, I graduated from high school, and I not only survived but also enjoyed my first quarter of college?!!??! I stuck with water polo until the end, playing for over 4 years, and I joined UCSD's crew team!

So my resolutions (aka goals that I hope to achieve at least a few of) for 2012 are:

1. Finish at least a year with crew. If it becomes too much for my mental health or grades I'll quit but I want to do this since apparently I'm one of those people who aren't happy unless they are doing strenuous physical activities that have them waking up every morning going "why the fuck am I still doing this". The life of the athlete who wants to lay in bed all day.

2. Get a job this summer. It doesn't even have to be a paying jog, and if it has something to do with marine life or swimming that would be awesome, but just DO SOMETHING this summer.

3. Finish the fics you've been working on for the past few months. And also draw more.

4. Start swimming again. Get back in the water because self I'm afraid water polo has made you take for granted how much you love the agility and grace you have in the water.

5. Tied to #4 but also different: bodysurf more. Either walk down or take the bus down and get in that ocean and ride some waves. Maybe one of your teammates would like to join you after saturday morning crew practice and would be willing to drive you back to school after! FIND OUT AND ASK AROUND. Also start surfing again during the summer.

6. Spend more time with your sisters. I know it's hard with college and the fact that you live at a different house when you do come home but you can do it. You've been doing good this winter break so keep it up!

7. You've got time to figure out what exactly it is you want to do and how you're gonna do it so don't rush yourself. Work hard(ish), have fun, and learn shit. You're gonna be fine kid.
