Schoolness

A few minutes ago I emailed my first homework assignment since I was put on academic suspension years ago. First real homework in such a long time. I'm not used to it. It was so hard to get it done on time. I would be dead if I had tried to go from no school to full time. I think I spent like 10 hours getting the work done for a less than 3 credit class. Next time will be easier. I will be better organized. It made me rethink how I study some stuff on my own. I'm a college boy again... YAY!!

I also hit a milestone with my getting in shape plan this week. I passed the 1/3rd mark for my weight loss goal. I did it on my own. That means I know one more place I can succeed without someone telling me what to do every day. Yesterday I turned in the 3 month pass coupon my mom gave me months ago at 24 hour fitness. The guy promised me that I would get in the best shape of my life, I don't think I really need their gym to do it, but I wouldn't mind if they speeded up the process significantly. I will probably be pushing myself a lot harder than I have. Plus now the hour of the day won't matter so much. A really good thing considering how short the days are getting. Tomorrow I get my one free session with a personal trainer I will try to remember everything. Actually I guess it is technically today, but 6PM feels like tomorrow since I have been up for a very long time.

I'm thinking more, and more about starting a business. Although the skills I have built up this year are nearly to the point where I could start a new career path I would really rather go with my own ideas than somebody else's. I really don't know how that will be financially possible with simply having gas money a regular major concern. I have several ideas that I really think could make me a lot of money, but I don't quite have the skills yet to get them off the ground. My current estimate is I will be able to start working on actual implementation rather than core learning in two to three months. Maybe I should look for investors.

Then there is that big warm feeling in my heart. I realized how I really felt, and now the doubt has been washed away. A few hard water spots left, but I think things will become crystal clear. This all means that I think I will be going on a trip as soon as I can manage it. Hopefully in the time off between school terms. I think I want to move in the direction of full time school by adding a little more work each term, but then again I might start a full time business, and I might follow my heart to a far off land. Such huge uncertainties for the not too distant future. At this moment I find my whole situation pretty exciting. I can see what looks like a fork in the road ahead. I don't know which fork I will take or where they will lead. Perhaps all to the same place.

I apologise for taking forever, and a day to reply. I was busy long enough to forget except when I happend to see your message again, by which point I was usually busy again.

The friend seperation think was actually the creation of sachmet. He happens to be on my friends list, but his tool is even listed on the Live Journal links page.
