1. Become awesome animator.

2. Land awesome animator job.

For such a short list, it sure is taking a while. :<

If I were rich, I'd pay you to make sweet music videos for me. I have freakin' ideas man! How much WOULD it cost to do a 5 minute synchronized music video anyway? And what does your animation look like.

-Buy a new computer that isn't complete crap

-Get together a proper portfolio for others to listen to

As a joke...

My to do list involves doing all the studying and thumbnailing I need to do for a interrupted landscape in watercolor before Sunday when I have to drive back to school.

I really don't want to...the weather has been awesome but I just don't want to go outside. This semester has been so rough I just want to stay locked up in my room playing games, talk to my guy, and watch Bones.

Man! Some of you guys have a shopping list for a to do list. Hahaha! That rocks. I wish that's what my list was like. I finished recording drums for my ZOLTAN Demo CD. Next is bass. It's not on the list but it's important. I also finished redoing my Xenogears rap for that guy whose name I can never remember and finished one of the hip hop songs I was working on. Strike those off the list! ^_^

This week

1. Finish senior thesis

2. Finish make-up work in Calculus

3. Think of a birthday present

4. Buy AP study guides

This Month

1. Figure out a way to release my EP that I've had finished for 2 weeks (I have a website but it can't take much bandwidth, plus my internet is really spotty so I can't do bittorrent).

2. Get 50% done with my next EP

3. Start on a live set so I can potentially play shows.

4. Finish EP my band made (got like, 3 or 4 songs our singer is recording tomorrow, need to track down some girl singers, and need to mix it all)

5. Finish my damn Super Metroid Remix (and potentially my Metroid Fusion one too)

Before Summer

1. Pass my AP tests (preferably with 4s or 5s)

2. Play a live show (even if opening)

3. Party

Before College

1. Clean out closet/buy new clothes/get new fitteds & kicks

2. Lose weight

3. Figure out how to shrink studio space

Things I got done are bolded, which isn't saying too much because my priorities keep changing as I've picked up playing Bass and guitar this month. I've also gotten remarkable amount of lyrics-writing done recently.
