Daily Check-ins

This forum is for check-ins or "book-ending" - a very effective strategy where you post a message committing to doing something for a specified length of time, then at the end of that length of time, come back and post a message reporting on what you did.

Friday Night, June 7th

Maybe all there is to do tonight is eat dinner and relax a bit and get to bed at a reasonable hour. Nonetheless, it's almost nine and I basically just got home. There's a lot going through my mind about procrastination and the things I learned at this site. Particularly the habit of time-bingeing.

I haven't been here in a month because I've recently GOT A JOB!! A real, full-time job at the University. It's a huge lifestyle change, but one I am welcoming.

I will eat my microwaved leftover dinner and see if I can come back and check in afterward.

This is what I want to do today:
- get material for my next and last presentation this semester
- get script for linguistics lecture
- do my dishes from yesterday
- repeat linguistics

Saturday 1st July

Hi everybody!

Sorry, I didn't check in yesterday. Before I went to the football (we won again!!! :D ) I got a lot of things done but then had to hurry. I had decided to bake muffins to take along so that's what I did.
The game was quite long and I had my puppy with me. She was all excited after the game because of all the crazy humans shouting so I took her home along the river where she could swim.

When I got home it was already pretty late but I had put my Goretex jacket into the washing machine and needed to make it waterproof which took a while. Also folded my washing and put it away. And I cleaned my sink even though I was really tired.

- class (8.30-10.00)
- library: copy stuff for my presentation

A good day to all of us!!!

Pro, I hope you are back today and feeling better!

Tuesday, June 27

I thought we were suppose to each use our own thread for CI (book ending), but if it's ok, may we all use the same one for each day? Maybe I'm confused. I don't want to intrude on your thread - but I don't want to be left out:(

Monday, June 26 -TL

Today I got up and went kayaking w/some friends from running group.

Paid a bill - yeah.
Called bank - yeah!
Those two things were great enemies of mine - but plowed through it:) And feel so empowered!

Have class at 1 (45 min) and then water skiing and then studying and then running.

Monday 26th June 2006 Bookending

Borrowed your title from yesterday, Normy. Unfortunately without such nice graphics.

Ok, today is the test. It is a 6 pm, so there is still lots of time (but probably not enough). Normally, I have a class at 8.30 am which I won't go to. But I want to be at my desk at 8.30.

This is my list for today:
- brush teeth, get dressed
- have breakfast
- walk dog

- learning:
- repeat stuff from yesterday
- learn morphology
- allomorphs
- morphemes (tyes)
- sapir-whorf hyothesis
- def. root, stem, base
if time is left:
- phonetics and phonology (how to describe consonants)

Good morning/evening/afternoon Anti-Proc people! Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I know Anouk is working today, so hopefully I won't be alone in here today (I got kinda lonely yesterday). I'm inviting others to join me in bookending here.

learning for exam!!!

As I worked yesterday until four and then watched the football (we won!!) I was pretty tired. Went to bed early and didn't learn for my exam tomorrow.

That's why I want to get done a lot today!

I am going to get dressed now and have breakfast and then walk my puppy. If I plan two hours for this I should be able to sit at my desk at 9.30 am.

Went trail running this morning and wiped out. So had a change of plans. Going to pool.

Plan on study 2 hrs sometime later today in 30 min blocks.

Need to contact bank and call dr and get oil changed.

Got some discouraging family news that lowered my feelings, but I'm going to move my muscles and be productive anyway.

bookending - Fri, June 23rd

Good morning. Last night before I went to bed I did a lot of the things I usually do in the morning - showered, straightened the apartment, organized my work area, and washed all the dishes. So when I got up, I just had to make the bed, put on clothes, and make breakfast. I was sitting down to breakfast within an hour of getting up! Usually it takes me hours in the morning to clean up and get organized.

Morning is my most alert time of day - the time when I'm best able to do the hard stuff. Now I won't spend the morning cleaning. When I'm done with breakfast, I'll be ready to do my consulti
