Seeking Accountability Partner for brief check-ins

Hello all,

I'm a 25-year-old woman living in California, and I'm looking for an accountability partner, someone to touch base with briefly a couple times a day.  I have a regular office job and can't check in during work hours, but mornings and/or evenings would be great.  I think a "live" check-in via some instant messaging system would be more effective for me than just responding to an email.  I'm open to using any messaging system, as long as it's a free one like AIM.

I procrastinate on basically everything I do, but the main things I want to address are getting to bed on time, getting to work on time, and practicing the keyboard.  (It's an electric piano type keyboard...not practicing typing.) :-)  I have many other things I'd like to procrastinate less on, but those are the things that cause me the most distress, so I'm starting there.  My main methods of procrastination are goofing off on the Internet and reading.

If anyone's interested, let me know and we can set up a chat meeting.  Looking forward to meeting you!

why not use the chatbox?

That's exactly what the chatbox is for. Why not use that?

I've gone into the chatbox a

I've gone into the chatbox a few times, and from what I've seen it seems to be a place where people say what they're going to do and then go do it.  I'd like to have more of a brief daily conversation.  Less "what are we doing right now" and more "how did we do today and why".  I'd like to drop in to a Sunday chatbox meeting too, but I think a daily one-on-one would be great.  Still interested in this if anyone else would like to try it.
