A good way to free the soul

So I’ve linked to this guy’s 2008 remix before, but his 2009 remix is pretty awesome too, so I’ll just link to all three he’s done, so you can get a good dose of awesome remix happiness before the new year.

Blog #976: 2009 Resolutions

Well, 2008 has come to a close. Thank god. So here I am with another set of New Year’s resolutions (and the results from the last set):

Last year’s:
-Keep the 4.0.
Status: check, thank GOD.

-Go to the rec center three times a week.
Status: hahahaha.

-Keep a journal of my weird, weird dreams.
Status: nope, didn’t happen.

-Actually start studying for the GRE sometime before I have to take it.
Status: technically I did this…but only by like two days.

-Make at least one decent Flash animation.
Status: does The Wrath of Xbar count?

 

This year’s:
-For once, I’m going to try and NOT worry about keeping a 4.0. Sure, I’ll try, but I’m also taking Linear Algebra.
-Get into grad school.
-Get better at R.
-Get better at Flash.
-Keep blogging, regardless of MySpace’s stupidity! (2-years-later edit: hahahahaha)

And…that’s about it.

End of year survey (a good excuse to throw another survey on here)

3) NEWCOMER AWARD – COOLEST NEWEST FRIEND?
Aaron!

3) HIGH POINT OF THE YEAR?
Getting my degree with a 4.0. I worked freaking HARD for that, man.

Christmas was great.

Spring semester: Breathe (LMC Extended Club Remix) by Erasure

Haha, probably The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars. I love my roommates.

No one. Of course.

11) BEST RELATIONSHIP?
The one I’m in now, which started in October.

Nothing, though I SHOULD have dressed up as Leibniz. I suck.

20) BIGGEST CHANGE OF THE YEAR?
Graduating!

21) BIGGEST douche bag AWARD?
I think they know who they are. Actually, they probably don’t. That’s why they get the biggest douche bag award.

22) NEW YEAR RESOLUTION?
Get my future planned out, figure out what school I’m going to (if any)

Goodbye, 2007 (or, as I’m calling it, Year of the WTF JUST HAPPENED!?”)

(why “Year of the WTF JUST HAPPENED?!”? Because it was a freaking rollercoaster, that’s why.)

Wee! Last day of 2007. Overall, I’d give it a 6.1 out of 10. Some parts rocked. Some parts downright sucked. So here we go with another obligatory end of the year ritual: the status of goals set last New Year’s, plus new goals for next year!

Last Year’s Goals
~Keep a 4.0: check
~Go to the rec center three times a week: fail
~Get a date: check!
~Get a life: fail. Fail, fail, fail.

Bonus Goals Tacked On at the Last Minute
~Watched Futurama incessantly until all episodes were committed to memory: check
~Acquired dozens of pieces of crap from eBay: check
~Realized that I don’t need a “life” to be awesome: check
~Developed many emotional attachments to many dead or fictional people: check

New Year’s Resolutions
~Keep the 4.0
~Go to the rec center three times a week
~Keep a journal (on my blogs, of course) of my weird, weird dreams
~Actually start studying for the GRE sometime before I have to take it
~Make at least one decent Flash animation.

 

Is it sad that that’s all I can think of right now? I think it’s sad.

 

I’ll add more later.
