First off let me start by saying, WOOOHOOO! My lazy streak is finally over and I’ve finally took down another list item. I feel so accomplished.
Well anyways, after much procrastination I finally got around to doing #36 : Learn More American Sign Language. Alright, let me give you the background on this list item.
Back in 3rd grade, I decided to join sign language club (just like in the movie Napoleon Dynamite). There I learned my abc’s, how to count and basic terms. For example, school was when you clapped your hands twice (almost like applauding school but I beg to differ) and toilet was when you make the letter T sign and flick rotate your wrist back and forth. After participating in the club i considered myself a sign language expert for about a year. But then, tragically one day I realized how much of a beginner I was. So depressing for my little fourth grade self.
Alright, fast forward to about 2 weeks ago. While making my list, I tried to remember some childhood disappointments and then I remembered sign language. There by creating the idea for #36 on my list.
Now that you read about the background, it’s time for my oh so interesting adventure learning more sign language. At first, I googled “sign language for semi beginners”, which was indeed no help. All that came up was the abc’s, which I already know, and counting. So then I googled “Sign language for intermediates”, and that was far to complicated. So you know what I did? I downloaded an app on my iPad. Even though it cost me $1.99, this app taught me words like have, love, bitter and bisexual. So I may not be intermediate quite just yet but I’m slowly but surely getting there.
This may not have been the most interesting blog in the world but boy did I feel happy when it was accomplished.
#36 Learn More American Sign Language: Check!
Yes, I admit it. I have been slacking since I’ve made the list (which was about a 1 1/2 weeks ago) I should have gotten atleast 3 of them done by now. No, instead I’ve gotten one done and wasted a whole lot of time. But in other news my buddy cheyenne has just created a blog on wordpress! Woo hoo (check it out @ tadacheyy.wordpress.com)! I feel so proud. So check it out! Well now its time to double time all of my work and hopefully finish by my deadline! Like I said in my prior post “Learn to Manage My time”. Yea…so far that isn’t happening. Cheers to Laziness! Stay tuned for next update and hopefully by then I have finished another item on the list :) Wish me luck and don’t forget to subscribe!
Plus in the meantime: Can you tell whats wrong with this image?
Thanks for reading! Adios!
Alright, so I have “attempted” #3 hold my breath for two minutes and guess what! I couldn’t do it. After several tries and many dizzy feelings later I realized that maybe just maybe this will take a lot more effort then I originally thought. But not just that, the list in general was going to require lots and I mean LOTS of time and effort. Like this blog it’s all I’ve been mostly doing for the past two days and while I wasn’t doing it, it was consuming my every thought. Damn. I gotta pull it together before it gets to the point where I’m not able to finish this list until the start of Junior Year. I’m not saying I’m going to change the bucket list so that everything’s easier and less time consuming but instead like my business teacher always told me, learn to manage my time. It’s a scary thought but Its the only way. The only way to finish this list that I am oh so mad at myself for making and committing myself to. But I am determine to keep this commitment, complete this list and inform my fellow bloggers on what’s happening as each item is checked off. Well I’m going to go google ways to hold my breathe longer and in the meantime I want you to ask yourself this question: How do you manage your time?
So long until next update!
Okay, I started the blog and everything to me seems to be so confusing! I’ve been trying to get the word out about it and by trying to get the word out I mean repeatedly googling ways to advertise your blog and clicking on every single link. And since I’m a teenager I cant spend any money on it. Every time I read something it says stuff like submit your domain name to a web directory but then when I go to the web directory it sometimes requires money or the whole process is just plain confusing. Maybe I’ll just rely on the power of the people to spread the word! Oh well atleast I got 1 of the hundred things to do done.
