Happy New Year everyone!

I spend too much time on wasteof. But of all the places on the internet, this is the only one that is worth coming back to multiple times a day.

Now, I present my goals for 2024. The goals are all specific and quantifiable, so I can measure if I complete them. Here they are:

  1. Run a 5k in under 20 mins by March, under 18 mins by August, and under 16 mins by November

  2. Run over 1500 miles in total

  3. Run a race every month - except January because I can’t find a single convenient race that month.

  4. Finish school early - I’m on track to finish 1-2 weeks early, so I want to keep, if not improve, that lead

  5. Bring the wasteof iOS app to feature parity with wasteof2 by July, and to parity with wasteof4 by November

  6. Do some other big coding project

  7. Read the book of John, taking it slowly through the book - Goal is 3-4 verses per day, John has 879 verses so it should take up the majority of the year

  8. Become (at least) friends with my crush. “Becoming friends” is defined as getting her phone number. I won’t see her until August, though and I barely know her. And I’m the most awkward person ever. We’ll see.

  9. Buy an iPhone 16 Pro Max and Apple Watch Series 10 when they come out.

  10. Get a driver’s license by August - I need 60 hours of driving practice in total, I have about 10 so far. I haven’t been trying though.

  11. Get a job.

  12. Repost this weekly with progress updates on what I’ve done to keep myself accountable.

2023 was the greatest year of my life. 2024 will be even better. Let’s get it.

Week 12/52

Sorry I missed posting this the last couple of weeks. It was due to a change in how I use the computer, I always forget until it’s too late.

This week was really good, especially Monday, Tuesday, and Saturday. I basically worked continuously with no distractions on those days.

  • 1. I missed this goal a couple weeks ago. However, this was due to the course being crazy hard (my friend who usually gets ~17 minutes in the 5K got ~21 minutes!). I do think I have the physical capability to do a sub-20 5K though.

  • 2. I’m up to 284 miles in total. This is slightly below where I need to be, but I’m not super worried. When cross-country season starts I will really increase my mileage.

  • 4. There’s only 1 really “hard” thing in school left (other than finals) which is happening tomorrow. After that I can basically grind and finish.

Happy New Year everyone!

Going to an NC State women’s basketball game today!

Dear wasteof.money Community,

I must come forth with a confession that burdens my conscience. Recent events in our community, including what has been referred to as the "skibidi takeover," were orchestrated by me with a singular goal in mind: to prompt the moderation team to shut down the site, forcing us to step away from our screens and touch grass.

Through the creation of alt accounts and the fabrication of personas like "dertermenter" and "dood," I engineered a narrative designed to sow anger and escalate tensions. The character of "lily" was a pawn in this scheme, employed to worsen conflicts and drive the community towards chaos. I used supporting characters like “radi8”, “raery”, and “duolingo” to boost my plan.

However, despite my careful planning and manipulation, the desired outcome was not achieved. Instead of prompting a shutdown and a much-needed break from our digital realms, the result has been nothing short of a failure.

What's more, I regret to inform you that the repercussions of these events went beyond our virtual realm. Several users have confided in me that the heightened stress and anxiety caused by the turmoil within our community led to unfortunate accidents, including instances of individuals so consumed by the drama that they involuntarily soiled themselves during a math exam.

Going forward, I’m resolved to learn from this experience and seek alternative means to foster positive change within our community. Let us use this moment of reflection to reaffirm our commitment to empathy, understanding, and mutual respect

Sincerely,

Oren “The Skibidi Rizzler” Lindsey

Random cha-ching sounds play whenever I open wasteof and I can’t figure out where they come from 😭 (they’re not coming from the site itself)

Dang I actually have a life now

Hey they released new Apple products today

Week 9/52

  • 10: I finally did some driving, I got 3.5 hours this week which puts me at almost 15 hours in total (out of 60 hrs needed)

  • 2: Due to my trip I only got 10 miles of running. I’m at 223 miles in total.

  • 5: Coding on this thing comes in fits and spurts, but my dad got the developer account, I just need to get around to releasing a beta version.

Happy New Year everyone!
