become debt free
Untitled

I’ve got around $3100 in small debts. I won’t even discuss student loans right now (ow…). In addition to that, I’ve had a lot of help from friends and family over the years and I feel some obligatory compensation is due. I haven’t been able to pay my debts since I’ve been in school, but now that I’ve graduated I have the time to focus my efforts. Finding a suitable job isn’t easy, but a temporary part-time job is my next goal to take care of the small debts.



Get an A on a flight dynamics test (read all 2 entries…)
Aced the Final

Got an A on the final, can’t get much better than that.



Average 4 mph (read all 2 entries…)
Harder than I expected

So it seems that an increase of 3/4 mph is actually pretty hard to do. I started out doing a full hour on the treadmill at 3.25 mph, and the plan was to continue going a full hour with a gradually increasing speed. The problem is that just a small increase in speed (even just 0.1 or 0.2 mph) can make it much harder to go the full hour. So far I’ve managed to go a full hour averaging around 3.72 mph and I’m having trouble going past that. I’ve decided to take another approach instead. I’ve found that I can average 4 mph with ease for a while if I alternate between 3 mph and 5 mph, but I start to tire out around half an hour. So I’ve decided to try going for half an hour and work up to a full hour. This way I get my nice 4.0 from the start and slowly build up my endurance to keep it up longer.
