Step Twelve in PA:

Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to compulsive procrastinators, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Have a great proactive day!

wrong day

movingalong's Friday night check-in

I worked on Financial Planning today.
Thank you higherpower for helping me face this.


Show up , done calender

Thx l for starter

So grateful for pa .today several items resolved before pa , just one would have shut me down. Legal issue, Hp had my back.

Aa bb:


 He had a desperate desire to stop, but saw no way out, for he had earnestly tried many avenues of escape. Painfully aware of being somehow abnormal, the man did not fully realize what it meant to be ------.



  But life was not easy for the two friends. Plenty of difficulties presented themselves. Both saw that they must keep spiritually active.



Though they knew they must help other ------ if they would remain sober, that motive became secondary. It was transcended by the happiness they found in giving themselves for others.



Aside from fellowship and sociability, the prime object was to provide a time and place where new people might bring their problems.


The very practical approach to his problems, the absence of intolerance of any kind, the informality, the genuine democracy, the uncanny understanding which these people had were irresistible.


They had seen miracles, and one was to come to them. They had visioned the Great Reality—their loving and All Powerful Creator.


To duplicate, with such backing, what we have accomplished is only a matter of willingness, patience .


Still you may say: “But I will not have the benefit of contact with you who wrote this book.” We cannot be sure. God will determine that, so you must remember that your real reliance is always upon Him. He will show you how to create the fellowship you crave.*

fudoshin: checkin : 10:23am

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



I'm so angry at myself for waking up late.  I am sick and tired of this, yet have not had the strenght to get up early because I've been "on my own" and not accountable to anyone.  So I am making a pledge here for  a few days.  In the very least I'd like to start waking up at 7am, but in order to work out in the morning I need to wake up at like 5:45am (start getting ready for bed at 9:45pm), which is my ultimate goal.  But now today I slept in until nearly 10:30am.  So tomorrow, Saturday, I want to wake up by 10:00am.

Sunday 9:30am (1:30am)

Monday 9am (1 am)

Tuesday 8:30am  (12:30am)

Wednesday by 8am (12 am)

Thursday by 7:30am (11:30pm)

Friday by 7:00am (11pm)

Saturday by 6:30am (10:30pm)

Sunday by 6:00am (10:00pm)

Monday by 5:45am. (9:45pm)


I must also start getting to sleep at the accompanying times.  I must brush my teeth at night as it is the first inducer to go to sleep.  I know that I only stay up because I get horribly bored and lonely, so I end up watching streaming television until I cannot keep my eyes open.  Mostly out of loneliness, depression, obsession or a pure feeling of not having any fun, but waking up earlier will permit me to have fun at the gym before I leave.  Moreover, waking up on time will allow me to attend social engagements that I'm now kicking myself for not being able to attend due to my waking up at this time (namely a company department party).   I am really angry at myself and embarrassed at all the stares, but this isn't about other people, this is a life problem that I have, and it has nothing to do with the particular job.  This could be any job and I'd still have this problem and that stagnancy horrifies me.  Perhaps not enough, which is why I'm posting this here.  Once I reach my commitment as specified above, I do not need to keep on holding to it, I will decide whether to recommit to a new thing after that,but I just want to give myself a chance to make that decision, and to make decisions about my own personal timing.

- "A procrastinator's work is never done."

Yay Friday. I can sleep in tomorrow.

Got an energy drink

I want to find network data. I have a list of things of machines under column name network data. Going to do a search on what each machine does through the community wiki since none of the columns have comments. I think I can figure out a faster way to get distinct column values. Nah doesn't work. So I'm thinking I can get network data on the machines in my column. I just tried the machine I work with the most and only got 4 values. There are still tons of column_labels that I can't find. This is a stupid waste of time. I can't find anything in giant databases. I'm going to work on something else.
 Someone's sending me something about how to determine what machine does what. I'll start here. Gah data is everywhere! Orca has some of the things and I do have a nice list of files that contain orca data. I have no idea where to start.
