Empty Pockets

At least everyday at school, I get hit in the hallway. Not by a person, but a purse. A huge, bulky, ridiculously large purse. I am used to it. It happens all the time. But recently, it got me thinking...

Why do we carry so much stuff?

We want instant gratification, and I think that having everything with you satisfies the need to get that instant gratification. Usually, it's only girls that have a million things with them, but now a lot of guys do too. Why do you need all that stuff?

Use the Rush to Your Advantage

The scramble at the end of the day. Traffic. Road rage. Crowded parking lots. Wouldn't it be great to leave school with no driving stress, whenever you decide to leave?

I arrive at school at 6:45 in the morning. I get a good parking spot, and can easily take my time to get to class. I am there when my friends arrive. If I am running late one day, I know that I still have plenty of time to get there.

But the afternoon is another story. School ends for me at 2:10.

Zen Computer Setup

When I get on my computer, I see my desktop background. That's it. I used to have a bunch of icons, gadgets, and the toolbar taking up space. I thought that since it was right there, it was simpler.

I was wrong.

Having everything right there is very distracting. When I want to go online to check the weather, I see everything but what I want. I see games, programs, and, well, everything! I would get sidetracked and end up doing something completely unrelated.

My Goals: Morning Routine

sunrise yoga

I started off right away with my 2011 goals. First on the list is my morning routine. I woke up today at 5 am, and drank some water. Then I proceeded to a nice half hour of yoga. If that didn't wake me up, I don't know what could!

Since I can do yoga in the morning, I just knocked out another goal without even realizing it. That is a simple and easy way to get my goals accomplished. If I only had gotten up at 5:00, and had done nothing, I probably would've fallen back asleep. If I do that every day, I will be a happy camper.
