Yea, I know I have a lot of goals. To me, however, it all sort of feels like a domino effect.Walrusfella wrote:Awesome! Going for the team will be great motivation to keep training. You really don't need special clothes to run, though I'd buy running shoes (on sale if possible, pay no heed to how they look) if you can. Decent shoes help prevent injury.CaptPonyholder wrote:Well, it has been about... 3? 4? hours since I beat Emi's story 100% and I can't stop thinking about it. While it hasn't depressed me as much as "To The Moon" has yet, it is still depressing. Not for the characters or the message. Just that it is over. I loved that character and her story is now just... over. Will they all be like this? I hope not T~T I don't think I could take it!
Anyways, I am going to start:
Emi's Couch to 5k Challenge
Emi's 100 Pushups Challenge
On Monday, hopefully I can stick with it. I plan to do it every Mon, Wednesday, Friday. I might do weekends, unsure about it so far though. I want to enjoy running and I want to try out for my College's Cross Country team, maybe next year. Who knows, I might be in the Cross-Country Team when I am in Japan XD I would most likely get my butt kicked their though!
Your drive to improve yourself shines through. Your goals are all admirable, but there might be too many of them to keep to all at once. I've found that willpower/motivation is a limited resource that can be spread too thin. I certainly don't mean to tell you your business, but I worry that there might be something of a "hangover" once you take in how difficult all of that is. Perhaps it might help to narrow the list down a bit and add goals back on once you've accomplished one or two.
I've been studying Japanese for 4 months now; another of my KS sparked self-improvement things. I've found it a beautiful and fascinating language, though utterly alien. I have been taking lessons in a small class with a proper teacher. I was lucky enough to have a good one locally with fair rates. I think that is probably the best way to learn it. I would find it almost impossible on my own. Since it's a means of communication you'd be learning, having other people around to practice it on would be invaluable. Your motivation would be much easier to come by.Espionage724 wrote:I want to also study Japanese too, really need to get some kind of motivation for this though... I have all the material needed to basically just start studying it, but never actually get to it. I'll either play Dota 2 for some hours, surf the internet, or find some other random task to keep me occupied for a good while, it's kind of annoying :/ If anything though, I do have Japanese TV set-up to just stream to a dedicated HTPC nearby (usually on TBS), so at least I'm getting some exposure to it
I do realize this might not be an option for you; not every town has a Japanese teacher, apart from other considerations, but that is the way I've been learning and I recommend it.
CaptPonyholder, studying that would also tie in nicely to your "meet new people" goal.
Yep! I've lapsed with my entries while I was sick a couple of weeks ago, but I'll be starting again. Ook and some of the others are on there too. Mine's here if you like. I've taken the liberty of following you.Completesky wrote:Does anyone still use fitocracy?
I need to practice Japanese and its lettering to go to Japan.
To go to Japan, I want to be 180/170 lbs.
To lose that weight, I need to start exercising.
To start Exercising, I need to cut back on fatty foods and soda.
Once I start Exercising I will feel better.
Once I feel better, my grades and knowledge (mentality) will improve.
Once my Mentality improves, I will learn better, learning Japanese faster.
Then again, I feel like Rin/Kenji at points with my thinking (at least Rin from Emi's point of view, still haven't played her route).
