Graduate from my ideal college and begin working as a psychiatric nurse practitioner. Take care of my dad and move us out of this apartment .

How can you lose when you're doing you ?

buy some waterproof boots (actual goal, could actually achieve any day) actually that's a sub-goal of the main goal of being immune to the weather, which is 80% complete already
do some exercise (postponed by procrastination)
find a new gf (postponed indefinitely)
new job (postponed from procrastination, also not really my goal but forced on me by external forces. TODO: add goal to overcome external forces)
kill flatmates (fantasy goal, sometimes achieved when i can work it into a fantasy)
move elsewhere (makes above goal obsolete, possibly easier option)
kill self (only metaphorically, also postponed due to procrastination, also fantasy)
be glorious (achieved in real life! kind of negates above goal when i remember its achieved )
transcend everyday life (semi-fantasy goal, achieved in pretty much every fantasy i have )
become homeless (semi-fantasy goal)
survive recurring panic/worrying episodes (ongoing)
more transcending things in general (ongoing)

i think i have more... but those are the main current ones. i know buying boots isn't a long term goal for most people but i tend to draw these things out. i've wanted them for like 2 years now. and yeah fantasy goals can be achieved instantly by fantasizing about the achievement. but then its gone after the fantasy is done, so it needs to be revisited a lot and of course it also ought to be worked into real life to some degree to make it more meaningful.

Mainly to keep waking up for as long as possible.

But also to make some serious money. If I can just hold my nerve I can probably do it soon. As Churchill said - never let a good crisis go to waste.

Plus of course a lot more travelling.

get more funds, hopefully from the internet
become self employed
become stealth homeless; (I was homeless for four months and was sleeping in a tent. I quite enjoyed it. So I would like to go back to the forest again. I was the most at peace there)
do wayyyy more snorkelling
get a better underwater camera, so I can make better videos of the things I see under the water.
move to Adelaide.
work more on my social skills. (not offend and scare people so much)

wow how do you become stealth homeless? I watched some YouTube of some stealth camping guy a long time ago. I'd love to live in my tent too, but not over winter.

Move all your essential things into a high security/ 24 hour access storage unit with electricity and wifi(fort knox self storage has this but it is quite expensive)
Sign up with a 24 hour gym (They have showering facilities)
Go to a coin launderette once a week and get all your clothes washed.
Put all your other stuff in a wheeled suitcase. And lock it in a travelers locker at a major railway/airport station
Use disabled toilets to shave, clip your toe nails(although I recommend you do this after having a shower as they are more pliable), or trim your hair.
Sleep in a tent with good sleeping bags rated to minus 3 degrees. Wrap the tent in two layers of tarp.
Go to libraries or starbucks and use their wifi.

The idea is you are homeless but nobody would know it unless you told them. Which is kind of what I did when I was homeless for four months. As for the winter, it depends on where you live. It gets quite cold where I am and even colder in the middle of the forrest. But i never had to deal with snow. So I cant give any advice on that.

Exactly one year later and my goal is still not be homeless somehow.

Not sure. I guess try to not end up broke and become fully independent.

Move in with partner
Finish my degree, get a decent paying job I enjoy
Increase my savings
Gain more fun/interesting experiences in life

Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.

Thanks for sharing, all of it is very interesting. There's a good movie about it called Leave No Trace.

Something I've learned: some gyms/leisure centres can charge you per shower if you ask. When I lived on a boat I used a local leisure centre and they charged me something like 1.50 per shower. Sometimes they'd look at me with sad eyes and let me go through for free. Not huge savings but might be worth it if you don't shower daily.

- Reach a healthy BMI. This will take 8 months minimum but it's doable and I've done it before. Even on days where it all falls apart I don't think I eat a surplus anymore, so it should only be a matter of time.

- Build muscle strength and endurance. Maybe something to show for it, too. This is a lot less certain since I have no idea what potential my body has so I have no idea what to expect, let alone plan for, especially before I get rid of the spare tire. I only know that I physically hate exercising and dread every morning because of it.

- Move out of this banana republic to somewhere civilized where I won't be legally discriminated against because of something I was born with. At least not to this egregious degree. Seems like a pipe dream right now. I struggle to go outside, let alone support myself financially and live on my own.

- Be dead by age 55. If suicide, respiratory issues or some easily-preventable thing don't get me before that, because i refuse to be examined. Ain't no way I'm sticking around long enough to watch my health and brain deteriorate.

Go up to Bali and Thailand again. (repeatedly)
Make as much money as is physically possible.
