I see a lot of these journal threads, and most of the people who initiate them fail to update. I've decided to make my own journal in an effort to keep myself motivated and working toward my ultimate goal, which is to fund my college education. Hopefully a few of you guys will be interested in following it, perhaps to learn something or even to give me a few tips along the way! A basic summary: Next semester I aim to follow up on a double major in both philosophy and social work at a large university in my state; since paying for such a thing is quite expensive (and seemingly pretty difficult while actually in school), I'll be busting my butt for the next six months. I need to bank (not just make, but save, after all expenses) about 8,300 USD over the next six months. Follow me at http://brentmihalov.com/ if you're interested; I'll bump this thread every so often with minor updates, but the majority will be posted on my site. Thanks.
