Success, and to-do list.

I haven't eaten any meat for 13 days straight.  I'm feeling confident about continuing it.

Goals:
1.  Don't eat meat.
2.  Don't eat animal products at all.
3.  Walk 3 hours every day.
4.  Do weight-training every other day.
5.  Get a job.
6.  Read computer science books.
7.  Eat less crap.  Actually, eat no crap; eat only good food.

I've read 26 pages today.

12 hours at 12 pages per hour would be 144 pages.  I normally watch tv pretty much continuously all day, but today I only watched 3 shows and in between that I turned the tv off.  But I went places with my mom for a couple of hours and then there was eating time, but actually that coincided with watching tv, so really it was only 5 hours of doing other crap, but there's also just little times of wandering around doing nothing, or going to the bathroom, or whatever.  Also, I woke up at 1:30.  So I've been awak for almost twelve hours, and 5 hours were devoted to other things, and I got 2:10 worth of reading done, so about 5 hours are unaccounted for.  Um seriously what did I do during that time?
So I supposedly have another 4 hours of waking time.  So that would be 48 pages, out of the 118 I wish I could complete.  Well, as long as I'm wishing for things....  Or maybe I can read faster than that.  IDK.  I'm a go try but I have been reading a lot, or so it feels, so I'm going to take a break till 2:00.

3 news items

I've been slowing reading a computer science book, with the plan to read all my other CS books too, and then my physics books, and then maybe some other books too.  Anyway, I spend a lot of time watching stupid things on tv, and I could be doing something a lot more useful with that time.  I had timed myself before, reading a political science schoolbook, and it consistently took me 5 minutes to read one page.  So I'm assuming that rate.  So I added up the time it would take to read all my CS books, and it came out to 473:50, and if I read 12 hours a day then that's 40 days.  So when I'm reading, I'm going to be doing nothing else, no tv, no music.  And we'll see if I can do it.

I have a diet plan that's pretty cheap, and I looked stuff up online and it seems reasonably healthy.
beans x 3
oatmeal x 3
nuts
seeds
fruit
vegetables x 3
water 60 oz, from a bottle with a filter
Total (cereal)
brazilnut
flaxseed
B12 pill
It's about $3.13/day, 1500 calories, 56 grams of protein.

The apartment we live in is 955$ and it's going up to 1054$.  Which is stupid.  Because my mom is the only one with a job and it's not affordable, it was barely affordable at $955.  So anyway, I said this is now definitely the time to seek a new apartment.  So I made a list of apartments (found on the interbutts) that are close to my mom's work and are cheaper than this one, and supposedly we're going to go drive and look at the apartments tomorrow to see if they look live-in-able and find out the real costs, since the interbutts are probably wrong, and if they have apartments available.

Adoption?

I was on lovejoyfeminism, and someone started telling me that I should not adopt an infant.  I invited them to my blog to leave me more information.  So I'm making this post in case that person comes here.
