I thought it seemed like time for a new plans thread, since I was formulating a new list of plans which have been kind of changed around and reworked from my previous ones and it seemed like a lot of peoples' plans in that thread were either being accomplished or dying.

anyway...

my tentative big plan right now is:

- get another job this summer (in addition to my current job) unless my current job can give me more hours.
- live with my mom this fall so as to not be tied down to a lease when I...
- graduate undergrad Winter '08.
- ride my bike all over the place.
- go to grad school somewhere for education Fall '09. (I have no idea where.)

I'm planning on doing something related to education. not sure what I want to focus on yet. maybe urban education.

I talked to a professor of mine tonight and she says she thinks the graduate program at Boston College would be great for me. she's awesome, so I trust her on that. I need to start looking into this grad school shit for real.

I'm also gonna talk to her again on Thursday. talking about stuff I'm interested in with someone who knows a lot about it is so unbelievably gratifying.

awesomeness!
Updated plans. Brilliant Idea.

Completed:
Went to Ashland Oregon
Moved to Vancouver BC
Got a job as a bicycle Mechanic.

Second Stage:
Pay off debt.
Hang out with people, develop new connections.
Find a hobby/interest.
Hook up with some sweet girl.
Volunteer with some gay/lesbian community stuff.
quit smoking.
cook more complete balanced meals.

There should probably be like one more stage or something but I really would like to get all of the above things in order before I go crazy bat shit insane on the others. I kinda like how my previous short term goals came together.

i don't want to get too ahead of myself so i'll keep it to 2008

- get up to speed with my new job (there's a lot related to this, a bit much to discuss here)
- get a gym membership and lose at least 20lbs
- start playing hockey again
- finish up my classes this semester (hopefully within a week or two)
- register for summer classes and finish degree

it's all question marks after that. i know what i'd like to do but like i said before, i don't want to get ahead of myself.

spring break, march 7-16
surgery at mayo clinic, march 26

i'm pretty excited--i won't be on vicodin constantly, so my school work will improve. although i'll probably miss three weeks of school, so i'll probably file for incomplete marks and finish my semester in late may. :/

I've abandoned my current film projects and attempted to purge the demons that lurk in my head. By demons I mean this horror film I've been working on for nearly two years.

complete:
-move to a new house
-visited SFMOMA*
-explored some of the bay area*
-took some photos @ blackalicious concert and around the bay, and LA*
-renewed sierra club membership*

in progress:
-keep on top of classwork
-be frugal until Europe
-active in clubs: sierra, school, hiking.
-take photos
-explore the bay area
-visit museums

unlikely:
-commute the lightrail to school

Google tells me that it is cheaper to drive my car than to take the train. In that cost as well is of course a time cost. The difference is 14-18 min in the car versus 40min -1.3 hours on the different bus + train combos.

* designates new or revised plans from my first post in this thread.

Lastly I haven't spent much the last few weeks, and I'm going to try to keep it that way. I've been watching movies at home, eating in, and not driving! I need to find a better way to make cash at home :) (I am becoming an mturk worker).

I was gonna suggest a plans v, but I'm still working on most of my plans from here.

I'm working a couple of jobs right now. still not making as much as I should be, but the second job sucks and I'll get by.

I'm not sure where I'm going to live in the Fall right now so I've gotta figure that out.

okay, list:

- figure out where I'm living in the Fall
- take the GRE
- take the MTEL (Mass. teacher licensing test)
- apply to grad schools
- figure out what I'm doing in Spring '09 (x-country bike tour, shorter weekend bike tours around New England + work, ?)

you think? I've tweaked my goals a bit. alright, I guess we can squeeze a little more out of this one. update on previous plans:

- figure out where I'm living in the Fall done (staying in current apt.)
- take the GRE pending
- take the MTEL (Mass. teacher licensing test) pending
- apply to grad schools pending for a while
- figure out what I'm doing in Spring '09 (x-country bike tour, shorter weekend bike tours around New England + work, ?) pending but close to decision
- read more pretty much done

new goals!:

- go camping at least twice before the summer is over
- go to the beach at least once more before the summer is over
- switch the bars and pedals on my fixed gear bike to make it more commuter-friendly (maybe switch to single speed?)
- get a full-time position I applied for at the library I currently work at (I really want this job)
- work full-time and take one night class in the Fall
- take final undergrad class in the Spring and graduate

Well, I have a poor quality short on YouTube. It didn't translate as well to screen as I had hoped, but I like to think of it as a sign of things to come.

I'm still trying to get my DP to post the zombie short. He's being stubborn.

As for my banjo skills... I've only begun playing as of a week ago. I can rock a few songs, but I'm still learning how to construct chords and so on.
