Playing with progress bars

Okay, so I learned this nifty little trick of creating a progress bar in html. Since I'm big on goal setting, organizing, list making, and all that good stuff, I totally love this!!

I've been playing around with them all day and ended up creating a bunch of budget/savings related ones for my other blog. I also created one for this blog that tracks my progress in school. See it right over there in the sidebar? Isn't it super cool!? It's shows how many credit hours I have left to complete before I graduate with my BA in History.

It's a little disheartening to make myself accept the fact that changing my major has set me back one more year, but that's okay. It's more important that I'm doing what I enjoy. Besides, one more year is nothing compared to years of working in a job that you don't like just because you didn't want to change your major and get set back an extra year.

I've spent way too much time the last few years giving up on my goals and 'settling' for less than what I really want out of life. So no more to that!! It's time to get what I want no matter how hard it is or how long it takes. Whew! Smell that motivation/ambition/insane craziness or whatever it is!!

So in all reality, when Andy and I talked last week about our plans for the next few years we can see that the timing will be perfect. It's really his place to say what he has in mind for himself for the next few years so I won't say any more about that, but if all goes as planned, then things should fall into place quite nicely.

In the meantime I'll have my handy dandy little progress bar that I can keep chipping away at.

Dude your progress bar is the bomb! I totally love it. I love catching up on what you're doing through your blog. :)


Oh yeah! Loving another history major out there. I was told once by a historian that writing history is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on. I laughed and laughed because he was close to 70. Always remembered it though.
