 oops- thamks again.

Vic 1/28

 Show up (done)  I believe I had approximately 1 degree (rounded) change in my PA progress on how I handled this report since the last. (I heard 1 degree makes a huge diffence when crossing the ocean, so I am grateful for that.

 I submitted what was needed in my report this morning and did not stay up all nite. The rest is in my work file and a full written report (with picturew, plans. maps, etc. will be  delivered on Monday). As an experiment, I am going to try to plan written time slots for this instead or "winging" everything in my head and write down how I feel because part of my problem, I can step back and see now, is that I overreact at what I do/do not do. I get upset because I think  family things don't count.

In OA I sort of got an idea of how much food I needed to be healthy instead of the binge/starve cycle.  Now I can choose how to eat healthy. I want that with PA, learn how to spend my time to be healthy instead of going into survival mode and all or nothing cycle of procrastination and prodection, anxiety,hypervenilation,immune breaksown and insanity. I guess they call it "balance- I know I will never be perfect, but I have hope now at least a little better. I just don't want to live like this anymore and I don't believe my HP wants it either.

Thanks for being here and letting me share all the "insanity" so I can crawl through the shame, confusion and paralysis of it all with others who understand and my HP.

Today I need to finish the paper I have been working on. Here is what I need to do: 

  • review section R and fill in some gaps of missing info
  • review section D and rewrite the bad parts
  • review section G-T and just write two more paragraphs
  • Chapter M needs quite a lot of work. I will leave it until last in the hopes that once the rest is done, I will have some momentum.

Enjoy the day.

Wow - where did the day go! - didn't even get gas for my car.   Like so many other weekends, it rolls over to Saturday or Sunday unless I want to be farther behind next week.   I must parse out my time better.   If planned properly, I could have completed most of everything, but I focused on one thing at the expense of everything else. See if I can get more done tonight (said that before....)  Snow in the mountains this weekend - I should be enjoying it instead of working.    Learn and change.

Hi All,

Just want to share a quote that I just heard that I thought really good:

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm....Winston Churchill." I think I will make this my new "tag."

I've been doing so much better because of our chatbox. If only I had used it a long while ago, it could have perhaps saved me at my job.

-order food before 3:00
-go food shopping
-print out checkbook stuff to balance checkbook
-get vegetables & cough medicine at lunch

Things I want to get off my head:
-set up new notebooks for 2010 & state registrations
-matching gifts (in progress)
-lots of deadlines approaching quickly
-transfer money between accounts
Regards and happy travels today!!

kromer 9 CI

OK, today I have more stuff that I want to get done that I can possibly get, I'll  just need to prioritized.

There's a bunch of scheduled stuff that I'd like to go to, but I'm going to need to skip some of up. I will attend: staff mtg 10-11 (this went really long), youth group 5:30-8:30.
If possible, I'd like to attend a party with my classmates 9-10:30ish (it would be fun to take a break, plus professionally it's important for me to know people in my program)

*Do transfections, check on expt
*Prep for staff mtg, and take notes afterwards
*finish bg, qc slides (actually, I'm not sure I want to include QC slides, so I'll hold off on these)
*final version of pset (working on this now)
*Email ID

Other tasks:
*GSEA slides
*Organize lab nb (made some progress on this)
*Download+pre-process new data
*Slide w/ comparison to cyp26b1 data

OK, prepping for staff mtg now. If I have extra time before the staff mtg, I'll use it to work on slides. After the staff mtg, I'll take notes and finish slides. I need to start transfections+other expt around 2:30.  

Update 12:10--working on finishing slides now.

Journey 8:30

Good morning!  Tired, confused, and muddled; me too Rexroth!  Yesterday was such a stressful day and I worked my a$$ off.   Now I feel like I should be able to just slack off today.   But, I can't, I have work to do.   So, I will acknowledge that I feel tired and be sure to get MITs (most important tasks) done and then think about the lower priority stuff if I have time.  When I feel this way I also tend to get antisocial and just sit at my desk and not talk to anyone, so I'll make an effort to go out to lunch with the Friday group too.  ugh.  I already feel that I don't want to go to lunch with people, although I KNOW I will enjoy it once I get there.   Maybe some coffee will improve my outlook, I'll go get some coffee, make a fairly easy todo list, and try to get out of here early enough to get to the library before they close tonight.  That will give me something to look forward to.  I really, really like going to the library lol.

Anyway, the good news is that I was up early and made it to spinning class at 5:15.  I have a hard time getting to that class on time but I made it this morning!  Therefore, I was early to work, so I should be able to leave early too, if I focus and get my work done.  There, I feeling better already.

Journey 11:30 &

busy morning with phone calls and trouble tickets again!  Not as bad as yesterday though and all the routine stuff is done, so it's all good.   The group lunch may not happen today so I'm off the hook about making that decision :grin:.  The other people in the group are also having a busy day. 

I'm having a hard time shifting gears from reacting to calls and questions and settling down to do some reports I need to do.   I'll work on the reports for at 30 minutes right now, then I will take a break.  (whether I deserve one or not!)

UPDATE 1 pm Reports are done!   now, should I go down and get a healthy lunch or sit here at my desk and eat cereal.  Well, that's a no-brainer isn't it.  Off to get healthy lunch.
