Short term goals

Since my last update, there have been several items on my agenda that have been achieved and others that haven’t. First off, I regret my decision to buy a car…the reason why I bought one was for two reasons primarily:

1. Help me find a part time job. I wanted faster transportation so that I could make myself more available to more jobs.
2. Get me to class on time. Provided I get into my commerce course, I needed faster transportation so as not to be late.

Turns out that it hasn’t really helped me with the first point (I’m still looking), but I am glad I got into my commerce course, so the second point has (or will be) fulfilled.
But there is a massive caveat to this: according to my calculations, the upkeep of the car is too expensive for me right now. If I were to pay off my debt and my car loan AND have leftover money for my tuition next year, I am still going to be in debt. So therefore, there’s really only two options for me: Keep the car and get a part-time job or sell the car and take some losses. The first one seems more likely; I don’t want to make losses or go through trouble of selling it, and even then how will I fulfill point #2?

Thus, I believe that this fall will become quite busy for me. I thinking to participate in many extra-curricular activities as well (such as public speaking and/or badminton, piano lessons, etc) in order to boost my character. But to work a full-time & part-time job AND get over an 80 in my commerce course is going to be hard work indeed. The last time I juggled so many activities, my marks dropped me down an entire grade point. So I have no idea how I am to handle this, but I hope things will come through; if I can do this then my vacation next year will be well deserved indeed.

There’s a minor style/image change on the site; now it’s more ‘blue’ I suppose. Also the reason why the media section never gets updated with new videos is because I am waiting for Cooliris to come out with a way to embed youtube RSS feeds into an wall. I just can’t be bothered to make an entire Media RSS feed for my videos just for this site =/.
I leave off this post with an acoustic guitar rendition of Moonlight Sonata. I’m off to study for my next interview -_-;
