    Well, the time for New Year resolutions is coming upon us, but this is more of a thread for general goals that you have for the future.

    Its always nice to see where people are at in life and to learn and benefit from other's goals and experiences.

    My immediate goals for the upcoming month include;

    Re-focusing my life and becoming the health conscious person I once was, this includes becoming an all around well rounded person in terms of health. Getting reacquainted with the cardiovascular portion of health and stretching, instead of focusing solely on my lifting.

    Developing a social network at my "new" college. I'll be in my second semester here, this upcoming spring and socially I am not at where I hoped. I expected to make social connections much easier, but in lieu of recent events here and the nature of the college I haven't developed those relationships. No excuses, next semester is the time.

    Joining clubs to aide in the social networking, experience and as a resume booster.

    Performing social service to help others as well as further my future in terms of networking, references, and experience.

    Investigate an internship. The internship that I had hoped for that would lead me into a 6-figure job within three years, is not running this spring. The manager told me if I were graduating this spring, to keep in touch and they would consider me for full time employment, but I still have another year to finish up here.

    Manage my temper and stress levels.

    And finally to re-evaluate my life and set further future goals. Decide where I want to be relationship wise - I have an ex-girlfriend thats waiting for me and a few other girls that are trying to rope me into relationships. I need to decide whether I still want to be single or if I want someone to be there for me intimately as a support system, not just as a friendship and support system.

    Personal goals for me. Are to get back to my prime. Get cut, and get the 6 pack I had, but keep my bulk. And also meet and keep social relationships with girls. I'm horrible at it.

    Business. I want to be licensed and bonded.

    Academic. In UW by Fall. CM program. :)

    All your personal goals will be easy to obtain.

    So long as you know the girls, social relationships are easy to make and maintain.

    If you can get along with the guys on these message boards, you can get along with anyone.

    <I'm not standing in a glass house here, my social problems at this school revolve around the fact that there's a huge amount of commuters, people already have their social groups established by junior year, I'm not in a frat or clubs, and people are downright non-social at this school - its all academics all the time.>

    THat's seriously lame. I well just never get invited to do shit. I have like me and my 4 roomates. We have like a small connection of friends. Probably 4-5 people each that we are really god friends with, but besides that. I'm just acquaintances with everyone.

    I'll take classes with the same dude/girl 4x in a row, yet its like awkard as hell outside of studying, etc. Maybe its just me being awkard.


    But I'm starting cutting tomorrow when I have a free minute. Going to start HIIT. 7 Cycle to start out easy. Go from there.

    I've been bulking for a long time now. My eating habits are going to be tough to alter. At work I tend to eat atleast 2-3 sandwiches and a bag of chips/lots of fruit, just to maintain energy. And that was part time. Kicking it in Full time(50-60hours), I think I'm going to be eating more, so its going to be tough to keep my intake 300-500 calories below my suggested for maintenace. I also need to pick up some glutamine. I really can't afford to lose all the bulk that I have been putting on.

    anyone offering you 100k straight out of college is straight up pulling your chain. that job does not exist in ANY field, save for MAYBE medical areas.


    my goal for 07: pay off the M3.

    Wrong! I know multiple people who will be making 100k+ right out of college next year. These are 21 year olds with no experience other than internships.

    Who are you talking to?

    If I graduate with the degree I want. I'll make 100k tomorrow out of college, but I have tons of experience in Construction. Mind you if I drop out of college and work full time, I'd still make 65k year.But then again my experience is similar to yours. No degrees in my field, just expertise, but soon once I get my degree in CM I'm going to be set. But I'll let you look it up. Know any construction managers for big firms? See how they live? They're pretty wealthy.

    within three years***


    And see, jobs in sales, easily exist with those sort of wages, since you can't cap out on commission. Sales are also going to be the only division of a business directly generating revenue so there will always be money there and always a need there. ;)

    Bloated in California?

    ...I live 45minutes from NYC when I'm in my hometown, and I live 30minutes from Philly when I'm at school. My immediate area is the largest in the nation.

    If I take the job, in three years I will prove it. Base salary and commission puts a first year canidate at between $50,000-$60,000. Second year is ~$80,000 and third year is easily six figures. You keep almost all your accounts year after year, gain new accounts, and see a small raise in base salary.

    Its really not unreasonable or hard to believe. The company is paired with DHL. When you're selling a product thats #1 in the world and #3 in the United States, its not hard to stand behind your product and make a clean sale.

    as soon as my son starts school ( hopefully we can get him in preK at the end of 07 ) im gonna go back to school.
    ideally id like to run my own business, but theres no money in what im interested in.

    currently im thinking automotive or audio engineering.

    about the discussion going on. my buddy got his civil engineering degree, started at 52k right out of college and now 3 years later makes 6 figures + company vehicle + vehicle allowance + company paid medical/dental/life, etc.
