2 down

Have paid off bank debt from over drafting and also a $550 verizon debt. So proud!



Find myself a hairstyle as obnoxious as I am. (read all 7 entries…)
Shoulder length & RED.

Thought i would absolutely love being rid of my long hair. I really was mistaken, though. I miss having it there. I feel like less of a woman now that my hair is short. How terrible, right? Also, the color has faded to this orange shade and it gets terribly greasy. I don’t like it at all. And it is at the awkward stage where there is really no style I can do w/o looking like a 4th grader. :(

Growing it out…..

About 8 months

yup.



Get my father a tombstone he deserves.
Untitled

My father was such an excellent man who everyone loved. He was always in a good mood and always laughing. In the 10 years I knew him for, I never heard him say one mean or negative thing (and no, im not exaggerating!). He was so warm hearted and had no enemies.
When I was 10, he got a job as a cab driver to earn extra money for my sister & I. On his second night on the job, 4 men called for a cab with the intention of robbing the driver. The driver was my dad. The men got a whopping $15 from my father, a man who never had much money anyway. They then thought my father would go to the police and snitch on them so they decided the best way to avoid that would be to kill him and torch his cab. They stripped my dad down to his underwear and took turns stabbing, punching and beating him with a basketball backboard found in a nearby dumpster all while my father begged for his life and told them he had two daughters to take care of. One man even went out to lunch afterwards.

My father was a good, honest, hard working person. Much like the rest of us in this family. We had very little extra money to buy such an expensive item. This is why there is nothing but a measly wooden cross my uncle made for him marking his grave.

GOING VERY WELL!!

Rosco seemingly caught on to the point overnight. He will go right outside now and pee instantly and will poop shortly after (if he has to). We used to be outside for 10-15 minutes waiting for him to muster up the courage to poop outdoors. (He is a very modest little guy.) Now he LOVES to do his business outside because he always gets a good rub afterwards and some tasty treats.
The only thing still holding us back is my boyfriend has to be constantly reminded to take him out or else Rosco will forget to hold it. But we are working on a schedule that seems to be working and I am very proud of the both of them!

I did not meet my goal of finishing by may. Not even close! I am taking my time with this one, obviously. I cant devote time out of every day to get on this website and cheer people on but when I do get the time, I make sure I give out my cheers!



buy lemonade from a lemonade stand
DELICIOUS

On a recent trip to New Hampshire for a birthday party, we saw a lemonade stand next door and decided to stop. For 50 cents a cup it was delicious.



Return to Mexico and see my family
TRIP PLANNED.

The trip is planned for July 10-24. Cant wait!

3 months strong.

Tempting as it is, I have not yet called out. 90 day probation is over and calling out is now a very possible option. I think i am more motivated by money than this goal at this point though.

Still working on it!!

I have been bringing him out several times a day since my last entry. He has been doing very well and is starting to somewhat grasp what im asking of him. For some reason though we cant get him to hold in between trips outside and he will always relieve himself on the wee wee pads during the night at like 2 or 3 am.
He has considerably cut back his use of wee wee pads but still has not completely broken the habit.
VERY DIFFICULT TASK.

I’ve been at my job for one whole calendar month. I have two months left in my probation period of 90 days. I have been seeing a lot of my fellow NEW coworkers calling out even though they are on probation, too. I know they are not getting fired but that doesnt mean I am going to get awat with it too.

YESTERDAY

I was running sooo late due to buying my new car. I was contemplating calling out even though it was like 40 minutes or so to my shift. I told them I was going to be 20 minutes late instead. I ended up staying at the dealership so much longer than I wanted to and ended up being an hour and 10 minutes late for work. I felt so bad but I know I didnt want to call out because of this goal and I also didnt want to be fired.

Figured out it wasnt worth the repairs. Buying a new, nicer vehicle from a dealer so that they are responsible partly for the maintenance.

Be part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.
Its good to give.

Ive always wanted to do this. No one has ever mentioned it to me I just decided on my own that this is something I would enjoy doing. I would like to spoil a less fortunate child like I spoil my brother and sister.

Impossible at this point. I have no camera.

This is definitely tough considering I am working second shift and the dog isnt comfortable enough with my boyfriend (whom he has known his entire life) to crap in front of him so he just holds it as long as possible. Then whenever he gets a second alone, he uses the wee-wee pads. And we cant yell at him for going in the house because that is what I taught him in the first place. Definitely not an easy task.



ride a roller coaster
Untitled

This is always the first thing I think of when I ask myself “what if I die tomorrow? what would I do?” Its crazy how bad I have always wanted to ride a roller coaster and out of all the chances I have had, I cant bring myself to ride anything bigger than the baby coasters. I am hopeless.

at this point, I have given 318 cheers. I check daily and make sure I use all the available cheers but averaging around 6 cheers a day, this could take a long time. I am hoping to complete this goal by May at the absolute latest.



fix my car (read all 3 entries…)
ugh. what a disappointment.

i need a new head gasket and a valve something or other. It is going to be 1300 bucks to fix but it needs to be done due to the fact that my car is running like shit. I have no idea where I am going to get $1300.
