learn to let go of bad feelings sooner (read all 2 entries…)
I think that I can do this now

It’s been a while since I’ve really hung on to bad feelings and let things stew. I guess I forgot about it but seeing this made me remember, it’s not really a problem anymore

Learn Portuguese (read all 2 entries…)
I'm counting this as learning

I’m not fluent in any way but I took some actual classes and now I understand some basic grammar and vocabulary. That’s enough to get me started, if I ever go somewhere that speaks Portuguese it’ll be enough to be able to brush up on it and try talking with people!

ride my bike year round (read all 2 entries…)

I love my bike, I love biking! But it’s getting cold and I just don’t have the money or motivation to actually buy all the gear I need to stay warm but not sweaty on my way to school. I’ve just gotten busy and I’ve been doing things after school at night too so I’ve just started driving. The problem is that I live like 2-4 miles from campus and the road I have to ride on is a car-packed highway. I don’t want to A) get hit by a car as I’m riding home at night or B) slip on ice and get run over in the winter.
If I get a bike to keep on campus and ride it around then I’ll call this year a success and maybe try again next year.
