Healing CD/my show (if there's time)



I have somewhere very definite to be this afternoon, so in a sense that will dominate my entire day if I let it. I need to give some time and attention to the MIT (most important task) of essay-preparation/research/writing, yet I dodge this like a bull-fighter. I did some small (but signifigant) amount of work on it on Wednesday and gave myself permission to 'relax' the day after...and the day after and the day after... not good, not healthy, not helping my anxiety levels, not reinforcing the sense of achievement and building my confidence up, my belief that I could do it... so anyway, will I be able to turn it round today? And DO SOME WORK???

  • walk dogs/buy almond croissant
  • run bath, make coffee, feed dogs
  • read in bath (research)
  • create essay document, type up what I've done so far.
  • open up two other documents which are other assignments due in on Thursday. I think it helps me to flit from one to the other, but I could be completely wrong. 
  • get ready to go to this event I'm expected at.
  • do my best to be a good ambassador for my fellowship
  • come home, walk dogs, tidy up (in a fit of procrastinatory domesticity I started washing down the ceiling and walls in the kitchen. Obviously I didn't get it finished, and now I can barely even move in there)
  • More work on the assignment: target of 500 words
  • healthy dinner
  • read (research)
  • bed as early as possible (if before midnight that's good enough).

That was a nice starter today too btw :) thanks
