How to dig up a full grown fruit tree without leaving your yard. An easy way to get in the best shape of your life while still at your job. An easy way to do something that takes 30 minutes. An easy way to avoid having an arm amputation.
I like fruit. I like nuts. I like cheese. I don't know how to have any of those three things without having a lot of them at once. Which is why I have decided to eat a lot of vegetables this year. I eat a lot of vegetables.
At first, I started just because they're good for you. It's the "if it tastes good, you're going to eat it" philosophy. But then my job began to have lunch breaks (which was good, because I could eat vegetables when I had a five minute break from my main job), then it turned into a regular thing. Now my lunch break is my regular thing. I'm in a regular routine.
Now I know what to expect when I'm working, and I've come to love vegetables. Now when I take a lunch break, I know what to eat. I know when I should eat dinner and I know when I should have a snack. I am the person who comes to work with a bag of carrots and a small bowl of hummus and knows I will be just fine.
This year, I'm going to eat a lot of vegetables and do a lot of other things. This is the list of things that I am going to do.
I am going to drink a lot of water. Even if I drink a lot of water, I'm not going to be as happy as I could be. I'm going to take daily naps. I'm going to read books that make me feel better about my life. I'm going to look for jobs that help other people and make money. I'm going to be more social.
That's it. That's the list of things that I am going to do to make myself feel better. If you have any ideas, please share them in the comments. If you have any goals, share them with me.
This morning I woke up thinking about things that I would be doing differently if I were in control of my life. I am only in control of a small part of my life. I'm only in control of this website and I have been for four years.
I don't think about this all the time, but I've been thinking about this for the past month. I've been thinking about the things that I like about my life, and how I can have more of those things in my life. I think a lot about this because I'm looking for a job.
After a week of searching for a job, I went to a couple of interviews. I think I was really prepared, but I didn't really do well. I don't know why I didn't do well, I guess my resume was really bad. Either that, or I have a bad interview personality.
That means that in two weeks I am going to have my last interview before I make my decision about the next job I am going to take.
I went through the list of things I should be doing to improve my life in the past few weeks. Then I realized that I still haven't written a list of my goals, which I know I should have started when I first thought about it.
Why don't I have goals?
Maybe because I think I can accomplish all my goals on my own. I think I can go to the gym to work out more and be healthier, even though I know that I need a job in order to get there. I think I can read more books that will help me feel better, because I know that I should be doing that anyway.
If I am going to have a new job, maybe I should write down goals. I might not need a job after all.
Or maybe I am just being a pessimist, and I should think positively and write down what I am going to do.
So I have decided to write goals for the next month. Why?
1. I will spend the summer reading 20 books
2. I will make a plan to go to the gym at least twice a week
3. I will learn how to tie knots to make homemade bows for clothes
4. I will paint my dorm room so that I can move in at the end of the month
5. I will make a friend in my dorm that I can call at 10pm on a Friday night
I hope to do all of these things, so that I can have something to look forward to during the long school year.
My parents are not that excited for me to go to college, but I am excited to go. I love being surrounded by a bunch of books, but I want to go and have fun too.

I wanted to know more about my cousin's cousin who lives in New York City, so I asked her to write a letter to me.
My name is Jessica, and I am your cousin, but we do not know each other very well. I guess you knew that when I invited you over for dinner with my parents on New Year's Eve. My brother and I were both very excited to meet you, but I was also nervous, because we had heard all sorts of stories about you.
One story was that your mom was the coolest person in the whole wide world. This was one of her stories, and she told it very often. Another story was that your mom and dad broke up, and it was a huge deal, because my mom and dad got married when they were young. Another story was that your mom is a famous artist. I am sorry to burst your bubble, Sarah, but you are not a famous artist. You don't know how to draw a perfect circle.
This is how I found out that you actually liked to draw. While I was telling you all these stories, you were laughing at all the good parts and shaking your head at the embarrassing parts. You told me that you thought I was very nice and cute.
At one point I thought about what I should say. I wanted to tell you that I am going to Princeton, but I was so nervous, I didn't want to say anything.
On New Year's Eve I asked you if you wanted to go to the movies with me. I was thinking I could take you to the movie, then to a club, then home, and you could tell me about how it felt to draw your first perfect circle.
You said, "Yes!" so fast, I almost missed it.
By the way, you said you were not into movies, but that's what you chose to watch.
Your mom says that the movies are not your thing. My mom says it's a stupid thing.
I was wondering if you might not like my parents. You know what? I like them a lot. I like them a lot a lot. I guess I like them as much as you do. So there.
Anyway, the movie was good. I will have to tell you about that part when we hang out next time.
We went to a club after the movie
