Updated Goals for Self

29 Dec

I think I have been making pretty good progress on my 101 goals. I’ve even added a couple more goals AND ended up completing some already that I figured would take some time to do – like get a dog.

It is hard to quantify how many I have completed, just because some of them are longterm goals, or goals that I have done part of.  But I would say it is good progress and that making a list of goals has been helpful. My weakest  part is the exercising with consistancy part- need major work on that.

    Good goals! But what’s wrong with deodarant? Did i miss a memo?

  2. anarchymo January 3, 2008 at 3:43 am #

    Deoderant typically is either part anti-persperant, meaning it clogs up your pores, forcing all of your sweat and other gunk to stay in your armpit and not get out like it should. Most deoderant also contains aluminum which is really bad for you as well (if I recall correctly it has been linked to cancer? and also lots of people get cysts in their armpits from deoderant clogging ness. a lot of the perfumes and chemicals
    Aside from the health issues with deoderant is the fact that we do not NEED it. Stinking is ok. Generally, people have been convinced that the way they naturally smell is bad, but I think that is a load of hooey being fed to us by capitalist producers in order to get us to buy some more crap we do not need and that is bad for us and the environment. I like the way indivduals smell, I’d rather that than be wiffing some fake ass teen spirit smell. that smell is false. We also wouldn’t think that natural smells were ‘bad’ if we were used to them.
