Slacking Off [Feb. 10th, 2011|02:41 am]

I haven't done my 15 minutes since last Thursday.

I did figure out part of the reason why I'm so beat on Saturdays & Mondays - I tend to take some generic Ritalin to help me focus at the comic shop for my shifts on Fridays & Sundays. There seems to be some kind of downer effect if I don't take more the next day. But I've also discovered it has rather negative effects on my digestive system, so taking some every day is a mighty bad idea.

Some things I have managed in the past 5 days:
  • one load of laundry
  • finally cleared out the old worm bin in preparation for dumping the new worm bin's contents into it (I hate the new worm bin & so do the worms) - still needs to be reassembled
  • sifted some old worm poop to remove stuff that wasn't finished, leaving a nice pile of vermicast - there's still a LOT more to go, but whenever I go to the basement, I do a couple of scoops' worth
  • wrote a list of things I should do when I sit at the computer
  • set up a kjcedits Twitter account to work on my networking, education, and self-promotion
  • switched my emails around (which was much harder than it should have been) so that my kjcedits email is attached to the kjcedits Twitter account & the kjccreates email is attached to the kjccreates Twitter account)
  • wrote down two pages' worth of authors & books (or series of books) that I read from childhood until I left for college (I am suddenly consumed with unearthing the names of as many authors & titles that I read as a child as I possibly can before I've forgotten it all)
  • read three books (Flip This Zombie by Jesse Peterson; Alison Hewitt Is Trapped by Madeleine Roux; and Heaven's Spite by Lilith Saintcrow)
  • read large portions of two other books (Zombie CSU: The Forensics of the Living Dead by Jonathan Maberry and The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama & Howard C. Cutler, M.D.)
  • wrote down notes for & researched the names of several books I've been meaning to look up
  • followed up with two clients who still haven't paid me
  • attended the Somerville Garden Club's February meeting

...plus the usual getting out of bed, showering, eating, crapping, and watching TV.

geting things done

Look at the list - Hooo-Rah - it is a darn fine list - you will be totaly awsome when you manage to fit the 15 min in. How do you know the worms do not like the bin?

Re: geting things done

It doesn't feel like a very long list for five days. But OK, I'll take your word for it.

How do you know the worms do not like the bin?

Because I am THE WORM WHISPERER! I got magical powers & stuff!

No, really, because they're not eating food & they're dying.

Somehow crapping never winds up on my list. Maybe I should change that. It certainly can have lasting repercussions on whether or not I make it somewhere on time. :)

Given my digestive issues, I spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME in consideration of crapping.

I would love to have that brain space for something else.

Like math.
