Playstation 3 gaming log : Intro

In an effort to accomplish new goals and challenges in life I have decided to pick up a gaming hobby to be more productive in life.

I used to play lots of computer games when i was little but as I grew older and transitioned to college I decided to quit playing games to bring my grades up. Apparently quiting what i love doing best actually made me more depressed and I ended up getting Cs and Ds instead of As.

So now I will return to the gamer life style from scratch. It’s been a long time since I’ve played any games so I am a bit rusty. I am planning on playing all the ps3 games first and then getting a ps4 in the future.

I am a fan of adventure/action/quest games but I recently discovered new skilling games such as The Voice, UFC personal trainer, Just Dance. These new games will teach me some skills in real life instead of completing random quests for virtual gold. I am planning on dedicating 8 hours a week to play ps3 and documenting my adventures.

Updates TBA, thanks for reading!

And yes, the ps3 is not that expensive compared to other hobbies such as golf, martial arts, traveling, eating and drinking. PS3 games are affordable and anyone can pick up this hobby if they have time.

My plan for academic success

sucesss22

To get into grad school or med school your (science) GPA must be 3.5 or above. If you don’t have that, consider changing your major or going back to school to start your quest over again. The last 60 units (your last two years) of undergrad/grad courses you take must be a 3.0 GPA or above.

Here is what i’ll be doing for the next two years

  1. Take fun technical courses at community college
  2. Take online extension courses
  3. Take open enrollment courses at my local university

Keep in mind that school doesn’t really guarantee you a job. It is up to you to network with professionals and make new friends along the way that can help you get your foot in the door. So the courses that you take will be just for fun to boast up your gpa. If the class is not fun, don’t take them.

In order to tackle this situation the key is to be organized.

Step 1: Get a notebook/journal

Step 2: Write down everything you need to do for that day/week

  • Read a book

  • Network with professionals

Step 3: Allot your time so that you can complete each thing accordingly to plan.

Step 4: Set a specific timeframe to complete your task. Ex : 30 minutes to one hour.

Step 5: Complete each task and mark them off one by one as you go

Step 6: Did you go over your time limit? Try to keep in mind what happened that made you go overtime.

Step 7: Reward yourself by the end of the day for your hardwork and keeping up with your organization skills.

  • Reward yourself with ice cream

Tips for buying a car

When your buying a new car here are some things to consider.

First do some research on what car you want to buy and make a decision. Would you like a used car or a new car? How long do you plan on keeping the car? Will you sell it back after a few years or keep it for longer then 5 years?

  1. Look up the price on the INTERNET.
    1. There is an app called truecar that may help you
    2. print that out and bring it with you to the dealer
  2. Make sure you test drive your car
  3. Make sure the car has all the specs you want
    1. A power-lift gate
    2. fog lights?
    3. Key-less entry
    4. Additional stepping stands for suv or truck
    5. A third row if you prefer more seats (for suvs)
    6. A top ramp for SUVs
    7. Additional fog lights?
    8. Back cameras
    9. Good air conditioning system
    10. Additional Tech installed

Lastly, before you sign anything

  1. Negotiate the price
  2. Do you have money for additional warranty? Avoid it if you don’t.
  3. They won’t stop talking and try to persuade you to pay more for useless stuff. If they keep doing that, just walk out and not purchase anything at all. Come back another day or shop elsewhere :).

 

For now, do research on the car that you really want. Keep in mind the price and special features that each car has. Every car is different and it’s important to have the one that has everything that meets your expectation.

Ichigo drinks vitamin water

 

ichigo drinks vitamin water marked

Ichigo doesn’t really drink vitamin water but I thought I used the tools and objects that I have near me to create this photo.

For background information, Ichigo is a character from an anime called Bleach. As a shinagami, his main job involves destroying disturbed souls that have been converted into hollows. These souls can then rest in peace after they have been cleansed.

*disclaimer : Vitamin water and bleach have nothing to do with each other. I just though I put them together for fun.

How to Study Effectively – Step one Get organized

Being organized is one way to make studying easier and get things done quicker in all aspects of life. Below I will show you how to be more organized in your life so that you can accomplish more things and have more time to go walk around town and practice your people manipulation skills.

How must one do this?

First create a to do list of things that need to be organized

  • Your desk
  • Your books
  • Your notes based on different chapters, different classes, different dates.
  • Your classes
  • A list of your friends that don’t really go anywhere you invite
  • A list of your friends that can help you become successful
  • A list of people that are evil and rude to you

Next just do it!

  • Stack your books in neat piles
  • Clear your desk of all junk and stuff your not studying
  • Organized your notes neatly in a binder

Lastly, get even more organized now that your already on an organization spree

  • Organize your papers into neat lines
  • Organize your books based on size
  • Organize your snacks into squares
  • Organize your grapefruit and oranges into triangles
  • Organize your pencils based on their size
  • And if all else fails you should get under a table and turn into a giraffe and then stare at your phone for 10 minutes.

 

Perhaps I am getting carried away, but hopefully this helps you become more motivated to be more organized when you are studying!

Once you are well organized, you can finally study in peace (after spending 3 hours cleaning up your desk).
