findingaway check in

Wednesday 10.30 am

Thanks for the starter Rexroth.

Must leave the house in 40 minutes or less, confused as to MIT things for today.

Am making the effort to go to a work related presentation and have lunch with a friend.

Vic 6/21

Show up (done)
Things did not go as I planned. Once again I must surrender to the fact that I am nit running the show. After expressing my Annoyance, I could let is go and say "thy will be done" what a miracle !!! Now plan b.


Today I managed to "cheat the system" by not checking in until now, after hours of indulging in my internet addiction. If I do that before checking in, it's ok, right???? Ha.

I've decided to be more specific today in order to break this large project down into more manageable pieces. I literally only need to finish part three of four. I'd like to do a total of 2 hours out of the next three, and since I wasted so much time today, I'd like to do another 2 this evening.

hope4meandu day 1 here

Thanks Rexroth for starting us!!!

Nice to see you storminateacup!!! Wow, name says everything!!

Glad to be here. Thankfully, I'm doing better. Today is getting stuff from old job and meeting with friend, thankfully. also, been helping a friend (who is paying me until I find work) who needs organizational/buddy help & it feels so good to work with someone who isn't taking things out on me and likes me (know that's hard to find in the "real" world) but it feels good for now.

To do:
-go to old job and clean stuff out
-food shop
-kitchen floor
-work out
-call Zena
-call Robin
-clean frig
-fill out job application form 4 tomorrow
-find a ride to Petworks
-DA meeting?

hope4meandu day 1 checkout

Now that the desk & computer at my old job ar cleared & done, I'm feeling strangely that this ended when it was supposed to - not usual for me.

Tomorrow needs to be considered a work day. I have an interview at 3:00PM, but must get things accomplished, as there's lots to do. For my sanity, will list the things floating in my head.

Feel so lucky that I get to spend so much time with my friend & help her before she leaves the country. This is such a gift.

-spending chart
-food chart
-DA meeting & service
-get a spending plan formulated
-wash floors
-have W's over before the end of June
-work out
-work on amends with sponsor

Sorry for the length, wishing you a good night, day, morning, etc.!!

thank you for this great

thank you for this great board and all the support given by others for others who are in similar circumstances. I will be starting a late night check in as I have not had the chance to fill in a check in this morning as I was busy and distracted by numerous unimportant things (frustration on high)

1.  Law Assignment

  • Read both overview texts and start on the main discussion (think upside down pyramid).
  • Read through all the notes and points made an look for overlapping ideas an interconnecting content
  • Think laterally through the content and then present it with solid grounds and previous statute or common examples.
  • Start typing

10pm finishing time

10:15 start to type assignment 

11:15 Have a break for 15 minutes

11:30 - 12:30 work until you can't work no more. Then when you cry out, push it push it some more.

F*** - 9:50pm, nothing. I

F*** - 9:50pm, nothing. I seem to be trawling over stuff I have already done and am practically chasing my tail thus leading to my mind drifting off to as a wondering what  an old work colleague was up to. Absolutely hate that I did that.


I give more time to the most unimportant things than I ever do to the things that are most important. I am broken, find me some glue.
