rec ci

This is my first check in for quite a while, which is probably one reason I have been less productive than I'd like. So here goes with a modest "To Do" list:

work on I file
work on K file
call S

Hope all here are well! A belated Happy New Year to all!

My first Check-in 2010.01.11 @ 2:19pm

Wanting to procrsitnate...imminent deadline.

 

Anxious, but I choose to open the V. chart and scan for what is still missing, make a list and get to it.  If completed before my meeting at 2:45, I will scan the D. chart for what needs to be done and get to it.

Granite

2010.01.11 @ 3:10pm

Made the deadline on the V. chart...feels good.

Now onto the D. chart... 

2010.01.11 @ 4:00pm

Searched for an entry into D. chart and in so doing...found all the unfiled pieces for 30 + charts going back to May!

 

Now have all organized by chart covering almost every inch of floor space in my office.  This white see looks a little daunting, yet they could all conceivably be put in their respective folders and sorted by date in 20 - 25 minutes if I stay focused

Here goes...

 Yikes... 

Welcome Granite!

Thank you Journey, it feels good to be here!

Yay for all those coming back!! So glad you are here with us again!!

Re: Welcome Back, prosick & Granite!!!

 

Thanks hope4meandu! I think it's the new year... trying to get things on the right track!

I didn't keep up w/ website & checking-in before cuz I felt like I was *wasting* time putting little lists on here, but I think it helps stay focused a bit so I'm trying again. At least it helps me see that I'm not a loser and am accomplishing things, just can't do all I need to do and am still letting others and myself down!!

*prosick*

*Prosick* - glad you are here with us

I so relate to you, and am also tired of feeling like a loser. Please keep coming back, we all need each other!!

kromer 9:25 CI

OK, today is relatively calm. I want to try time-logging this week to get a better sense of where my time is going.

Scheduled: Seminar 9:45-11, dancing 8-10

High priority:
1)Look at slides
2)Read/ask about different fixatives (have made some progress on this)
3)Call to wish brother happy bday, wrap his present
4)Install/update website blockers on lab/home computer
5)Work on outlining potential stories for thesis proposal(working on this now)

Medium:
1)Order RA
2)Call home
3)Condolence note

Low:
1)Organize WM folder
2)Fix javascript validation
3)Work 1 hr organizing computer files.

OK, right now I'm going to take a little time to pray and visualize getting these things done, then I'll find some resources about fixatives, then I'll head to seminar. 

kromer 2:15 CI

OK, I've done a decent amount of work so far, but I can feel myself lagging a bit.

Right now, I'm going to do my task for the day that requires the most thought (working on potential thesis proposal ideas). My goal is to have 5 ideas outlined, w/ a quarter page (single spaced) for each...nothing too huge, I have plenty of time this week to work on this, this is just  a start. Then I'm going to install website blocker on the lab computer, then I'm going to order RA and finish reading about fixatives/making plan for IHC, then I can start thinking about low-priority tasks if I have extra time. 

Update 2:45: I have a quarter page for my first idea, and a few lines for each other idea. 

kromer 3:30 CI

OK, I have my 5 ideas outlined, and have installed website blocker on the lab computer. Now I'm going to take a 5-min break, then I'm going to finish reading about fixatives/making a plan for IHC.

Update 5:30--OK, I've finished reading about fixatives and made a plan for IHC. Now, I'm going to order RA, call brother to wish him happy birthday, wrap present, and write condolence note. Then I'll clean up my workspace and have some dinner. After that I can work on low-priority tasks if I want. 

Update 6:20: Have ordered RA, called brother, and written condolence note.  Now I'm going to wrap present and clean up workspace.

time logging

Time logging is a good idea!  I do that now and then, it's quite the eye opener.

Journey 9 am & updates

Great day so far but of course it's still early :grin:

I feel energetic today, after having such a down week last week it feels good.  I went to bed early, got up early and made it to spinning class.   I like that class but it's soooo early.  Therefore, I was also early to work, and I've already read email, checked my calendar, and made my todolist.   Now I'm going for coffee and yogurt, then I'll plug in my tasks on my google calendar and get started on the first task. 

Have a productive and enjoyable day y'all.  Think of ways that you can work on your goals and enjoy the process!

UPDATE 9:21.  Have coffee, now making schedule for the rest of the day. 

UPDATE 3 pm:  Been productive so far today but I'm starting to drag a bit and look for distractions.   I'll work on Project V. for the next hour then take a break.

fudoshin : checkin : 11:36pm Sunday

Please do not leave feedback or advice.  Thank you.  Prayers welcome. 

                                                                                                                        

I just don't know what to do.  I feel like I am falling on my sword right now.  I am really not looking for direction from my mother, as she fortunately does not live here.  But I'm stressed for adequate reason.  On top of this, I feel lonely because of my sex and love addiction.  The only way I can retain my sense of independence I feel like is through working and through being financially comfortable. 

My only escape from obsession is when I go to watch a romantic comedy.  It's sad.  I feel so empty.  I rehearse choreography, but I don't want people to hug me at the Karaoke Dance Parlor.  I don't want that.  I only want to hug my sigOt, I don't want to get chummy with other random people who come up to me, just cuz they're impressed with my dancing.

I don't like the fact that I've been more or less stalking this Internet celebrity.
