Not gonna live that long.

What about you?
To all the people fighting a hard battle out there - life's giving you a pretty hard beating. There's no sugarcoating that, but there's no shadow that's free of light. When life sneers at you and asks, "Ready to go again?" - Raise your hand. Reach out to victory. Don't give in.

Very long story short I have an aggressive skin cancer that had remained untreated for quite sometime. Doctors gave me at most 5 years to live, worst case scenario being I die in a year or two.

What are your goals for the next seven seconds?

Dude, really? I am just trying to type here...

the next seven minutes?

Um, finish this stupid post without you bothering me, for one. Get off my case!

the next seven days?

Get a new drummer and guitarist for the band. Go on a date. Re-learn Air on a g String on my classical guitar. Get my car fixed, get back into my gym routine now that I have a working vehicle.

the next seven weeks?

Become better at my trade. Get my 2012 property taxes finally paid-off. Hopefully start a relationship with a girl, I'm sick of being single. Start volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused kids.

The next seven months?

Make some home-improvements (i.e., replace carpeting with some hard-wood flooring). Get a good chunk of my 2013 property taxes paid off.

The next seven years?

Become a journey-man in my trade. Get married, move a woman into my house and have a steady family-life.

The next seven-hundred years?

By then I'd like to have started an intergalactic DDO empire capable of debating alien species as far away as the Andromeda Galaxy. The trick will be to overcome that 72-hour round-limit, since it could take millions of years for the signals to get back and forth. I think indefinite voting periods would be a standard as well...
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Don't panic. I start a new job on Monday and I tend to panic, so my goal is to not do that.

What are your goals for the next seven weeks?

I want to understand my new job fairly well by then, and also to buy a car.

The next seven months?

I intend to move out of my grandparents' house and into my own apartment by the beginning of the summer.

The next seven years?

I'd like to live with my boyfriend, buy a house, or both. Hopefully I'll be doing fairly well in my career by then. Maybe I'll even go back to school. I definitely intend to have a cat by then.

I'm going to try to finish Harry's knife.

What are your goals for the next seven weeks?

I'm going to work on some other projects on my list, but I don't know which ones. I'll probably make some arrows and finish some bows I've been working on.

The next seven months?

I'm going to try to find a job that doesn't require me to stay in hotels four nights a week and that doesn't result in me being unemployed every other year.

The next seven years?

I'm going to try to buy a house, write my book, win the lottery, and live happily ever after.
