2003 A Good Or Bad? What Goals Do You Have For 04

Thu Dec 25, 2003 10:09 am

I am just wondering how many people had a good or bad year and did you acuplish your goals and how much you have grown as a person.

I would say I have had a great year in 2003. I have went from a school kid with nothing and little confidence. To someone with loads of confidence a good job, new car and meet so many people from many different places, backgrounds and attitudes that has helped me grow so much as a person.

how's tour year been and what do you want to achieve in the coming year?

In this public forum, I hereby renounce all junk food starting NOW. Now, a little junk food for most people wouldn't be so bad, but I can't stop with just a little.

Best wishes to ALL members (even the ones with whom I usually disagree!) for a very happy 2004.

I had a pretty good year in 2003--Did well in school, rushed a fraternity, met my present girlfriend (well, considering how much money I've spent on her, maybe it isn't a good thing  Big grin ), worked hard over the summer, and kept my relationship with my parents on stable ground.

2004? Who knows what I will accomplish, I'm not a huge fan of setting goals.

I'm not a huge fan of setting goals, but I would like to lose some more weight and be a f*cking sexy beast again.

That in mind, I wanted to get some photos accepted here, and it worked, the year was pretty good, school is really bothering me because I am trying and not getting the grades I deserve, but oh well...

Happy holidays.

I had a great 2003...Besides a friend who died, and a few issues here and there, I have no complaints.

For 2004, (since I already got into the college of my choice which was my number one goal) is to enjoy the rest of my highschool days and my youth.

Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten, Uptown, what now? Lets make it happen.

For 04, I would love to get out of my debt, but I will stick to a much simpler goal to get much bigger and bulk up. I want to weigh 215lbs by this time next year, and I am talking muscle.

2003 Will definately go down in the history books. Both accomplishments and failures

- Started dating my girlfriend of ten months.
- Had both best and worst college semesters (spring and fall respectively)
- Spend 5 Days in New York City (got to see more than just Manhattan)
While in New York
- Spent a day in Bay Ridge (Brooklyn)

- Rode the 6 line for the second time and the Broadway Local for the first time
- Ate a dirty water dog and roasted nuts ( both which i have never had)
- Saw Radio city for the first time
- Turn 21 on New Years Eve! what a day to do that!
- Saw Fallingwater, The Guggenheim Museum (Manhattan) and Darwin Martin House in person. (Three of Frank Lloyd Wright's greatest achievements)
- Flew by myself for the first time (purposely took three flights each way)
- BUF-PIT-CLT-SRQ on the way down SRQ-CLT-LGA-BUF on the way back
(first times in PIT and LGA airports as well)
-Saw the Phantom and Mama Mia!

Things I didnt do that were on my list

- Get a 4.0
- keep loving my girlfriend
- travel to Europe (possibly)
- leave the country - Canada doesn't count (no offense Canadian North, just that when you live 7 miles from the border its a routine thing to go there about 10-20 times a year.)

Well thats my list.

May you all have a splendid holiday and a joyous new year.

Peace be with you!

Well, the best way to put it is that I had one hell of a year. Here are the highlights and lowlights.

-Passed my CFI checkride on the first try.
-Moved to Boston.
-Took the ATP written (135)
-Met my girlfriend (now ex-)
-Almost got engaged to girlfriend (now ex-)
-Broke up with my girlfriend (now ex-)
-Busted my CFII checkride. (I am now 4 and 1)
-Drove from Salt Lake City to Boston, twice.

Goals for '04:
-Finish the retest for the CFII (lucky for me, I only blew one task area, so I only have to be retested in that task area.)
-Complete the multi-engine add-on for my commercial certificate.
-Complete the multi-engine add-on for my instructor certificate (MEI).
-Find a flight instructor job.
-Get a new girlfriend, one that I actually like spending time with.
-Learn to sail this summer via Boston's Community Boating program.
-Get back into shape. I'm not exactly the biggest guy, but I could still use some toning up.
-Draw more. I used to draw all the time, and I was pretty good at it, but I've gotten rusty.
-Some religious goals that I will not mention here.

And while we are on the topic of goals, here are some that may extend beyond '04:

-Finish the Business degree that I started. (That will give me with two BSs.)
-Fly as a profession.
-Get married, have a family.
-Own a house.
-Get a Masters Degree.
