I'm new here, just thought it would be nice to introduce myself. I know that not everybody cares or even reads this, but I'm at work and I'm bored, so here it goes.
I'm Kizzy, 25, female. I live in Holland (Europe), together with my boyfriend. He's American, we met on LJ last year and now we've just started our plans to conquer the world. The world is mine!
What's up with you?

THIS comm just kinda died off. I am kinda sad, so I figured maybe I could attempt to ressucitate(sp?) it.
What goals do you hope to accomplish for 2005?

I haven't updated here in a while and today felt like a good day to do that.
Things are going pretty well. I've been trying to push myself do things that I've been afraid to do. Taking more risks. Meeting new people. It's been fun so far.( Read more...Collapse )

My class will be over in a week then I'm done with my bachelors. I'm going to go look into getting a better or second job soon.
Clark and I have another rank test on the 22nd.
I'm miserably out of practice so my plan is to spend the mornings working out and training (screw the pain in my messed up feet I need to overcome)
lunch with friends on campus if they are able and willing.
Afternoon hang out or train more if I'm still up for it.
Nights work followed by spending time with my cherished friends.
May I have the strength to achieve what I set out to do.
Current Mood: motivated

I remember the initial reason I started this community. Accountability. When I was heavily involved with the church, I used to watch my father. He's a minister (FYI for you new people). In the early days, when he was a deacon, he had a prayer partner. They pushed each other so hard. Every morning they would pray. And they were generally good friends. When one didn't feel like getting up in the morning, the other would step up and hold the other guy accountable. Then they started to bring me along, and I kind of joined the circle.
Perhaps this was the beginning of my faith, praying in the corner of a small church at 6 years old. I'm not nearly as strong in that respect anymore. I still believe in God, but my faith is so weak I feel ashamed about the subject. I don't represent like I want to, but I really don't know how I feel about it anymore. But I learned some great life lessons while I was involved in ministry. I've avoided many problems my friends back home had to struggle with. And all together, it's made me a positive and highly motivated person which I'm thankful for.
I always wanted an 'accountability partner' of my own. And moreso, a best friend. Someone I can count on to help me through situations, and in turn, I could do the same. Someone to push me when I'm feeling lazy. Someone to talk to about my problems when I can't deal anymore. Steel sharpening steel.
I have bigger plans for this community. It inspires me to read about people who are motivated, and who are doing the best they can with what they have. I hope to get to know each of you a little better. I plan on making some updates once school starts up again, and I'd love to hear what you have to say. In a way, we motivate each other and hold each other accountable by writing down our goals for others to see. And this community isn't all serious.. heh, you can talk about anything you think kicks ass. It's all good.
I've updated my own user info a bit to reflect my current mind state. I feel like I'm in a good spot right now, and I'm going to keep encouraging you people to do your best. Hahaha.. if you can keep getting back up from your beatdowns, then that's the first step to true badassness. Ok.. I have some kick ass movies to watch. I checked out Sugar Hill and Rounders last night. Rounders was awesome. Check that movie out if you haven't seen it. I need to find two more.
Hi there. My name's Caroline. I'm 19 and I'm going to be a junior in college this fall, and after about 18 years of being one of those "smart kids who doesn't work hard" I'm finally starting to apply myself in school and on my sports team, and I think this community is awesome.
If nobody here has ever heard the song "The World Is Mine," by Cracker, it's a pretty good song and, well, the title's fitting.

Tonight was pretty eventful. I spent the evening at Robert's house. Billiards, pinball, the best food I've had in forever (even better than Alicia's.. scary), and a new minor addiction.. *sigh*, DDR. This could have been an every night thing this semester, but I've always held back. Don't know why, but I'm trying to get into new things I normally wouldn't try. Another bad habit I picked up is cigars, but it's a nice way to zone out. I'm sure it'll pass once I leave Hoover.
I talked with Dave, Matt, and Robert tonight, and I think I'll be sticking around here for a while. Dave co-oped 6 rotations, and I have the go ahead from them to work as many semesters as I want, so I'll probably slow down on school, instead of speed up, and earn some money while I have a confirmed job. Hmm, I wonder how many more rotations will MSU allow.. this is already my third. I'll probably squeeze in 3 more if I can, so that leaves me 4 more semesters of school. Yeah, I should be able to do that. I should drop Spanish now, heh. No need to hurry.
Yeah. I think I have the next 2 or 3 years planned out, so that's a great feeling. Nice to see new people in the community by the way. I'll be sure to post more as I get time. In the meantime, good luck out there. Carpe diem, baby!

"You are only worth, what you ask for."
I heard that in my class today, and even though it was regarding real estate, it has such broad meanings, in regards to self-esteem, confidence, etc. If you don't hold high standards for yourself, and know just how valuable you are, then nobody else is gonna go out of their way to value you either.
Anyway it's late here...hope you all enjoy.

My name is Diego, and I would like you to add me to your communities friend list. I added you.
As an artist, I lost my spark years ago, 6 to be exact. I joined the army, and I lost the spark. The Army and my own complacency built up and destroyed my love for drawing. Well...
Now, I am back in the army getting ready to deploy to Iraq, and low and behold, I am drawing again! I find it odd I found this community today, since I only been drawing again for the past 3 days.
I was surfing the web, and did a google search on "how to draw faces". Well, in reading the website, it directed me to women, and I learned how to draw them in, what, 5 minutes easy! I went to an art school for 4 years, been drawing since I was in the 1st grade, and in 5 minutes, I learned to draw! Go figure on that one!
Well, today I bought 400 bucks worth of art crap, and while I am in Iraq, I am going to seize the day!
THE WORLD IS MINE!!
