What are you currently wanting, nonnie?

>"Vividly describing your goals in written form is strongly associated with goal success, and people who very vividly describe or picture their goals are anywhere from 1.2 to 1.4 times more likely to successfully accomplish their goals than people who don’t. That’s a pretty big difference in goal achievement just from writing your goals on a piece of paper.

>Writing things down happens on two levels: external storage and encoding. External storage is easy to explain: you’re storing the information contained in your goal in a location (e.g. a piece of paper) that is very easy to access and review at any time. You could post that paper in your office, on your refrigerator, etc. It doesn’t take a neuroscientist to know you will remember something much better if you’re staring at a visual cue (aka reminder) every single day."

Post here things that you want: Be it material, a goal, something that you've been wanting for your whole life or just an impulsive need.
Keep track of the stuff you want to have or do, or rationalize it with your self if you really want said thing after writing it down. Report back if you get it!

My bucket list is pretty mundane tbh I just want a chill happy life. I'm 29 and I want my 30s to be as fun as possible, my 20s were good for me financially but socially a flop.

>Ultimate life goal: save and invest to the point of being able to retire early (likely to be in my 50s at best or whenever my parents die but I can dream). At the very least only work jobs with a great work/life balance and low stress

>Own a cute, clean apartment furnished and decorated to my liking - I have the apartment, currently saving for the renovations
>Become skinny and happy with my body, sadly I know I'm not going to genuinely enjoy my life until then no matter where I go or what I do
>Be consistent with exercise and eventually start lifting for the sake of my bones, develop a healthier relationship with food and stop binging forever
>Travel regularly to Japan for as long as I can, as well as occasional trips to other places
>Stick with my hobbies - figure skating, ballet, Japanese - and actually get good at them by practicing more often
>Somehow find a bf who I'm actually attracted to and smitten with, who feels the same about me and treats me well
>Spend more time going places and doing fun things like concerts and day trips and the beach, I'll never be a social butterfly but even if it's alone or just with my sister I need to get out more

I posted this just the other day, but I suddenly had the impulse to start rollerblading again. I spent the last two days reading through the rollerblading subreddit and compiling potential skates to buy and I've narrowed it down to a handful. I'm scared of wasting $300+ on equipment only to end up hating it, but I'm keeping my rollerblading goals small right now. I just want to be able to skate around leisurely around my neighborhood and the parks in my city. Maybe if I ever feel confident enough, I want to learn how to do cool tricks and possibly skate long distances to get places (but I'm also okay with not doing this). I'm excited at the idea of decorating my helmet and painting my skates (good and cute skates do not seem to belong together in this world kek) and having a new fun hobby. Here's to hoping my $300+ doesn't go to waste!

Picrel are my dream skates but reading around, they're really not the best so I'm hoping to paint my skates in a similar pastel blue/yellow colorscheme!

Hey pal. I’m skating too! Please please please find your local skate or derby store. I made the mistake of ordering online before trying them, and it resulted in me wearing painful I’ll fitting skates. Went to the derby shop, tried on Reidells, and it was SO MUCH BETTER.
Also, please look up YouTube videos and practice falling correctly to avoid breaking your wrist… like I did lol.
Here’s the Reidells I bought- totally worth the money ($250 I believe)

Sweet skates anon!! Quad skates generally look so much cuter, I'm so jealous ahhh. I considered doing quad skates but I kind of like inline skates more since I'm a bit more familiar with them.

Yeah it looks like sizing is fucking hell when it comes to skates hahah. I was planning on buying a bunch online and then returning whatever didn't fit. But thankfully, most of the models I'm thinking of buying are available at the only two inline skate shops in my city, talk about lucky! I did scour for used ones but I have such small feet that it's like finding a needle in the haystack (and skimming yesterday on facebook market place it looked like people were mostly selling soft boots and not hard boots that I want).

I'm scared of falling and looking like a fool but I plan on practicing at my local park in the mornings where the basketball courts are empty and there are only old people practicing tai chi and the homeless to judge me kek. Will definitely look up tutorials! I saw some of those "I learned to rollerblade in a week" videos and it's so much fun to watch people's self learning progress, it makes me so excited aaaa!!!! Also am definitely splurging on safety equipment kek. I got health insurance now but damn I don't wanna deal with explaining that I got fucked up falling on my ass like an idiot hahahaha

Yikes! Yeah I read that tiles are rough. I live in the city so clear areas to skate are very far and few between but I'm planning on going to my local parks. Do you live near a park or even a parking lot that gets relatively empty during the day? Plain, even asphalt is the best if you don't have access to a rink or skate park I think. I hope you find somewhere to learn and practice! What skates do you have?

Picrel. Apologies if they are actually called something else than skates lol.
I have a park near me, but I think the roads are paved with the same type of brick. There is another one, but it's 20 minutes away from me (by bus) - I'm not sure if roads are asphalt there. There is an asphalt road near my house for bikers, but it's between car road and sidewalk.

I highly recommend s1 knee pads. I have dodgy knees and they have been a lifer saver doing roller derby .

Those talking about sizing in skates don't start me! I'm a half size which makes things fun. Also you should try different lacing techniques as well. As sometimes it's the lacing that causes issue/pressure points.

I want so many stuff, I don't know how to focus!
Anons, how do you focus on getting the stuff you want? I don't mean like clothes vs a computer, for example, I mean like you want to travel to 2 different places a lot or you really want 2 different jobs but you can't focus on only one of those things and your energy ends up all over the place, meaning you end up not even getting one thing.
How do you do it? Do you do a list of pros and cons of each thing? I get so lost at this stuff
I feel like it's good to give a lot of things a shot, but when it gets too diffuse it can be a problem, I think.

I want to do so many things in life but I already have important things to do like studying. But I want to in my life one day:
- learn Icelandic
- compose a song, it can be just a shitty edm song or crap computer black metal I just want to make one to see how it's made
- learn how to sew, sew a pretty bag and patchwork pillow covers and everything patchwork and have a patchwork house
- make a doll (I want to make Terra Branford and Kefka dolls, with their lots of fancy fabrics and decorations I think they would make fantastic dolls)
- make a costume of Yoshimitsu in Tekken 7. I will be alien squid skeleton cyber ninja man and I swear to you it will be amazing. I already planned every detail in my head I just need lots of time and some money
I downloaded a bunch of books about sewing and crafting and two about making dolls on libgen.is and they make me so excited. Look at these dolls, I wanted to make just a Terra doll because I always loved her so much for no reason, but after I saw the left upper doll I want to make a Kefka too. The book is called Designing the Doll: From Concept to Construction by Susanna Oroyan and you can get it on libgen.is for free as I said.

>- make a doll (I want to make Terra Branford and Kefka dolls, with their lots of fancy fabrics and decorations I think they would make fantastic dolls)
I want to make a doll so bad too, but I feel like I'm hopeless when it comes to manual work. I also downloaded a bunch of books on the topic from libgen like half year ago, but I'm so intimidated… If you browsed the books, which one would you say is the most helpful?

I skimmed through only the book I mentioned and it contains a lot of text and pictures of all the different techniques to make dolls, but it doesn't show step by step how to do it; I think it would be best to see the steps to be taken in order to make a doll from that book, and then look online for each step if there is any more information. There are lots of videos and blogs with photos on the internet, it's easier to follow when you have pictures.

YOU CAN DO IT! Making dolls is intimidating at first but everything is based on really simple construction! It's worth learning. There is a stuffed animal and doll thread in /m/ and there are lots of resources linked in the thread description including the original blog posts that became the book that anon mentioned. It took me a long time to take doll making seriously but now I'm making them as a side job and I really love what I'm creating and how good it feels to express the ideas and give my dolls personalities. I even make little clothes for them, and I'm definitely no seamstress!

Thank you, I already found it when I was looking for how to make a plushie dog; I love these japanese blogs with their simple outdated themes and laconic posts
