My 101 in 1001

Some common goal setting tips:
1. Be decisive. Know exactly what you want, why you want it, and how you plan to achieve it.
2. Stay Focused. Any goal requires sustained focus from beginning to end. Constantly evaluate your progress.
3. Welcome Failure. Frequently, very little is learned from a venture that did not experience failure in some form. Failure presents the opportunity to learn and makes the success more worthy.
4. Write down your goals. It clarifies your thinking and reinforces your commitment.
5. Keep your goals in sight. Review them frequently, and ensure that they are always at the forefront of your thinking.

Writer's Block: Parlez-vous francais?

What other foreign languages do you know? Which one(s) do you want to learn?


русский - haha, Russian. i know a lot of Russian and can hold a limited conversation with a native speaker.
English - fluently what with being American and all.
Spanish - SPAIN Spanish, as in the type spoken in Spain - bordering on fluency. i'm good at holding a conversation w a native Spaniard. Hispanic Spanish...no go.
French - still pretty decent at it
Korean - bleh, i sucked at it and all i remember is how to count 1-10 and say "to the cafeteria"
Japanese - i remember a bit. my kanji is horrible. but i can still read hiragana and katakana. i still know SOME kanji tho
Arabic - bwahaha. never take a language based on how pretty the writing is. i worked hard for my B in that class. all i retained was how to write my name.
Brazilian Portuguese - not my strong suit.
Italian - i can understand pretty fluently when written. spoken, however, uh-uh.
Serbo-Croatian - it came easily to me. i can still read semi fluently, spoken i can understand some.

ones i wanna learn - Finnish and German

transferring // Tristan

transferring
so i decided to go with the movers to move us. i have a LOT of shit to go thru. a LOT. in a month. i have to give a 30 day notice to my landlord, and see if i can retract it in case they change his date. i have to go thru tons of shit in our bedroom, aka, storage room. pack things to keep at my parents' house - theyre keeping things for storage. call the housing office and see about getting on the astronomical waiting list, or if the leprechauns smile on us - get into housing bwahahahaahaaaaaaa, yah, at E3 that's not gonna happen most likely. but dont hurt to try. go thru papers and books and clothes and my god, why am i on lj and facebook when i really should be doing this lol. i'm sure it's gonna be Mayflower as theyre the only ones in town, unless the Navy brings some up from Louisville.

thank you, military one source. i love you now.

i wish i could have some sort of yard sale or whatever before we go. i'd hate to donate this stuff to the Salvation Army or Good Will here, because the workers take whatever they want for free and whatever they dont want, put on the shelves. but who knows. i may do that, cuz some of the stuff i dont wanna throw away, i'd rather SOMEONE use it.

how the hell did i do this for 16 years of my life? well, i started packing my own stuff when i was 5, but still. guess cuz it felt normal.

it'd be sooo nice to get into housing. it would. i read somewhere they were making E4 and below housing in Norfolk. i'm hoping it's true. but i'm still looking online for apartments in Norfolk. i'm calling the housing office tomorrow.

i also have to go to my high school to get a transcript, and try to make it up to Bloomington to get my IU transcript too.


Tristan
Tristan's therapist, Miss Kara, comes again tomorrow. my god he really likes her. and he's using the sign for "hungry" and saying "unnn," and the sign for "eat" and saying "eat" only it sounds like when you say it without the "T" on the end. i think teaching him to talk more this way is easier, mainly because otherwise he's all over the place whereas if my hands or fingers are moving too, along with saying the word, he's got something to focus on while i'm saying the word, rather than me following him around trying to get him to say it.

i cant wait to take him to the ocean. he LOVES water. he LOVES dipping his toes into the Ohio River here, so i cant imagine him with the ocean. gonna make sure he knows how to swim. i dont. i hate water. i hate deep water that's dark and you cant see the bottom of. gives me shivers just thinking about it.

Writer's Block: Comfort food.

What's your favorite comfort food, game, movie or thing to do?


food - mashed potatoes, chicken & dumplins (no i didnt forget the "g" lol) & breaded okra - i'm Southern....it's what we eat

thing to do - baking cookies

movie - The Sandlot

i dont really have a comfort game.

porn for women

15. Make 101 new recipes

1/14/11

i made up my own, Spicy Chicken Salsa Burrito

1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 tsp - 1 tsp chili powder
1/2 can (10oz can) of Rotel tomatoes and chilies, undrained
4 small spoonfuls of chunky salsa
1 burrito shell
various burrito / taco toppings

cut chicken into bitesize pieces and put in skillet with a bit of water on medium-hi heat til chicken's cooked thru. drain most of the water out. add Rotel, chili powder, and salsa to the chicken. simmer on low about 5 minutes or so. put on burrito shell and enjoy.

of course, you can make tacos if you want. i made this for myself because my husband is at boot camp. to make more, of course you can add more ingredients. if you dont want it too spicy you can add sour cream to the burrito.
