Dear Diary, Trip to Whidbey Institute

my 3 favorite things that I liked doing at Whidbey Institute were hiking, being over all more educated about wildlife, and having a picnic.

3 things I want to do in the future at Whidbey Institute are getting a tour of the garden, go berry picking, and any volunteering we can do.

Letter to Kelly

Deary Kelly,

It has come to my attention today that I need a coach. I recall you offered to be a coach at the last parents meeting. I’d like to know if you’d be interested in being my coach. Being a coach consists of a one on one meeting with you and me discussing my goals for about one hour each week.

Thank you for considering,

– Tommie

Dear Diary December 16th 2014 Intentions and Reflections

But first the question of the day:

Q: what are 5 ways you wasted time this semester and how you can improve that.

A:

browsing Facebook/Imgur. I can start a daily ban for Facebook/Imgur on my computer from 10:00 to 5:30 everyday.

I’ve wasted a lot of time not knowing what to do. I Whenever I’m not doing something I could pick something to do in my backlog.

being tired. I could try waking up later or going to bed earlier.

cuddling with my dogs. Resist their cuteness during school.

not knowing what to do when doing an intention. Breaking down the intention into multiple pieces.

Intention: go to the web dev scrum.

Dear Diary December 12th 2014 Intentions and Reflections

But first the questions of the day:

Q: looking back at the week what things are you most proud of?

A: I’m proud that we just did our first power free day last Wednesday, in a way it kind of prepared us for a 2 hour blackout that happened last night. I’m proud that we made the RNGesus statue on no cheats, it looks really good. I’m proud that I made the time sheet for our web dev project on Google spread sheet. I know this doesn’t exactly count but I’m honored to be Brice’s little brother. I just watched him play in the semi’s of  a professional video game tourney. I walked the dogs in the first time in a loooong time today. And last but not least I’m proud that I finished the first 2 chapters of a people’s history of the united states for the book group.

————————————————————————————-

Q: what 5 productive things have you done this week?

A: I read 2 chapters of a people’s history of the united states for the book group, I made the time sheet for our web dev project in Google spread sheet, we had our first power free day, I walked the dogs in the first time in forever today, and lastly I have still been managing our web dev project.

————————————————————————————-

Intention: watch my big brother play in the NA LCS expansion.

Reflection: his team name is final five. He lost 2-3 best of five, but they still have a chance to come back in the loser’s bracket. Not to mention they didn’t think they were even going to make it into this and they were shooting to make it next year. Getting into the semi’s, and going 2-3 against a really good team is really awesome. The casters seemed like they were a bit biased towards Brice, but that’s fine. They seemed like pretty amateur casters anyways with their terrible commentary. This was the only intention that I got done since it took up all of my day.
