What have you accomplished lately that makes you proud?

Asked by Haleth (19518points) April 7th, 2011

I taught myself how to parallel park. That sounds pretty insignificant, but a year ago I couldn’t even freaking drive, and now I’m road tripping all over the place. Parallel parking was the only thing I couldn’t get, because I drive a really shitty car with no power steering. It takes some real finesse to get that P.O.S. into a tight parking space. I was driving around downtown Richmond last weekend and had no choice but to parallel park, so I just did it. On the other hand, I was parking so I could go to a party where I got really high and played foosball all night, then I ate cereal straight from the box. So accomplishment and un-complishment cancel each other out.

What awesome things have you done lately? Let’s all give ourselves a little pat on the back.

Learned 2 songs on the guitar I’ve wanted to play for years. Finally just sat down and did it.

I don’t like to extol my own achievements but I did do very well in terms of networking at a work forum this week. Not one of my favourite activities.

I wrote a lyrics website that isn’t shit a few week ago. It is database driven and isn’t shit. Still a lot of bugs and not much content. But in about twenty hours I banged out the CSS and SQL to get it working. It isn’t near being complete. But you can find lyrics without being subjected to ads and spyware.

Rode my bike 67 miles through the Sacramento Delta in two days; the second day through a wind and rain storm with gusts of wind up to 40 miles an hour or so.

@crisw That is impressive. Not fun, but surely satisfying when it was over.

I’ve been trying to seek help about my drinking problem lately. I probably won’t get anywhere but the fact that I’m trying is a huge difference from before lol.

I’m slowly learning how to take care of myself. My dental hygienist congratulated me on taking better care of my teeth.
