November 1, 2009

things to do and people to see

I forgot today was daylight savings time, so really, I woke up at 7:30 this morning.

A pleasant surprise after a not-so-pleasant night. For future reference, Self, you do not like Halloween, and if you would like to enjoy the holiday at all, you should really try a little harder. Or take the train instead of drive.

I have accomplished a number of things today, and I have a number of things left to do. Which is a good feeling, I think, for a Sunday afternoon. I have written 2,000 words toward my NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000. I overshot my grocery budget, but have food and toilet paper. I have completed all of my “hard” reading for class tomorrow. I have eaten both breakfast and lunch.

I would like to finish the following before the 10 o’clock hour:

  • Rewrite my Narratological Analysis of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian at least once
  • Finish reading The Graveyard Book and Rabble Starkey (my “easy” reading)
  • Put away my laundry, a week after I’ve washed it
  • Do up some Daily and Weekly goals, a la Zen to Done. My life needs some more Next Actions and Goal Lists, I think.
  • Spend a little more time with the budding novel. Hopefully doing things that will give me something to write about tomorrow, since my preparation for this year’s book can be described as “Type and Pray”
  • Do my management assignment that I keep forgetting about.
  • Finish watching this week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy
  • Procure contact solution

About seven hours to accomplish these tasks.

I feel confident.

I also feel confident that I should quit procrastinating and go-do-it!

Anyone else having a Super-Productive Sunday?
