NYR: Update #2, new blog and more

Ah, yes adding one more things on to the load. A new blog! Dedicated just to finding out which Snapple “Real Facts” are true of false. Check it out here.

My NYR (New Year’s Resolutions) have been going well, the exception is here and my photoblog. I hate that! I have so much on my plate I haven’t had the time I thought I would to update both of these like I would enjoy doing.

For school I’m finishing basically 2 years of school into less than 4 months. So far I think I’m going to be able to do it. I’ve narrowed my teachers 36-week recommended schedule into 36 days, basically 1 week of work into 1 day. I happily report that my grades are excellent at the moment, and I hope to continually report this.

I’ve also been taking my free time that I have in researching places that I would like to live and finding out what the cost of living is and trying to find apartments. =] To move to the USVI I’m not going to be able to find one online because most of the apartments are listed in the towns newspaper or by word of mouth.

As for modeling, I will hopefully soon be out of the contract I am currently under and start other endeavors.

Good luck on your personal NYR. It’s very easy to lose track of what they were, but if you keep your mind on track you will be sure to accomplish what you wanted for yourself in 2008!

NYR: Weekly Update # 1

I’ve decided to have a weekly update on how I’m doing on accomplishing my New Years Resolutions. I will be closely watching my New Years Resolutions to see how far I can get to getting everything done that I would like to. I’m hoping that blogging will help me gain motivation. For the past week I have still been recovering from Christmas and New Years so I’m lacking just a little bit.

I have been blogging more, especially neat findings that I have found on the internet. This week I’m planning on writing more about starting an ecommerce store and games on the internet.

I now have a photoblog, which I have been blogging everyday since the 1st of the year except for 2 days! It’s so exciting actually being involved in photography again.

I still haven’t found a web hosting service that I like for my website, but I have been searching non-stop. If anyone has any ideas that would be very helpful!

Today I am having two people sign my forms to be able to change my name and start more of the process of the online business. I have found a host for the online business at Volusion.com, which is an all-in-one ecommerce solution. Continue reading

New Years Resolutions, In Depth

Instead of just naming the things off I would like to accomplish this year in a list I thought it’d go more in depth, by saying why I would like to accomplish these goal, how I am going to accomplish them, and by when I would like to accomplish them this year.

  • My high school diploma, with decent grades
  • Why I want to accomplish it: I would like to accomplish recieving my high school diploma so I may go to the college that I would like to attend, which is FIDM, and so I can have the job I would like to have, which is being a graphic designer.

    How I am going to accomplish it: I’m going to accomplish it by keeping up with my school work, and studying.

    When I would like to accomplish it by: I would like to have my diploma by May.

  • A job, that I enjoy doing
  • Why I want to accomplish it: First of all, the money would be a big plus. Second of all, I’m going to need the money to be able to pay for everything when I move out. Third of all, it has to be something like I like doing or else I’m not going to want to wake up and go do what I have to do.

    How I am going to accomplish it: I’m going to accomplish it by finding something I enjoy doing, then I’m going to find somewhere that’s hiring.

    When I would like to accomplish it by: I would like to have a job by February.

  • Moving out of the house, into an apartment somewhere near the beach
  • Why I want to accomplish it: I want to move out once I have my high school diploma because I won’t have to focus on high school anymore, and so I can move near the beach.

    How I am going to accomplish it: I’m first going to finish school, than I’m going to figure out where I would like to move. I’ve thought about the Caribbean, but I’m having second thoughts about it because it’s so far away from home. I have thought about different places yet, but I’m not sure.

    When I would like to accomplish it by: After I get my diploma, hopefully in July I will be moving into my own place.

    New Year’s Resolutions

    It’s that time of year again. Christmas lights glow at night, trees have been put up and decorated, and the next thing around the corner is the “big ball” dropping in NYC!  In years before I have made lists of what I would like to accomplish by the end of the upcoming year, but the all of the lists end up being thrown away of forgotten about. Apparently I’m not the only one who has this syndrome, and some people don’t even make them. This year I have decided to follow through with my resolutions. I will be blogging about them. Let’s see if I make it!

    My New Year’s Resolutions for 2008 are to achieve or receive:

    • My high school diploma, with decent grades
    • A job, that I enjoy doing
    • Moving out of the house, into an apartment somewhere near the beach
    • Blogging more, at least 5 days a week
    • Taking more photos, and start a daily photoblog
    • My own website, with my blog, forum, photos, etc.
    •  Modeling, and making it into at least 2 magazines of some kind
    • A well maintained online business

    For now, these are my ambitions and what I would like to accomplish and work towards in 2008. Keep checking in to see how I am doing accomplishing these things and to see what else is going on in my life or what else I have found.

    HAPPY NEW YEARS!
