The 5-Week Push
April 11, 2011 § Leave a comment
I’m so close to the end of the semester, and at the same time, there’s still enough time to make considerable improvement. I have all those times when I have given up so close to the end. I am tired of and ashamed of giving up. That means, no more failure to act or failure to think or speak because of being afraid. I need to toughen up or I will never make it anywhere.
That said, TeuxDeux, a simple and straightforward but oh-so-useful To-Do List Site create by the fantastic SwissMiss, is hopefully going to help me to work more efficiently. It is just so rewarding to create neat lists and cross off tasks that I feel more motivated to get those things done by the mere existence of the visualization of my bullet points. (And if you don’t finish a number of tasks by the end of the day they were supposed to be completely, they are automatically moved to the next day’s TeuxDeux list—like magic!)
Before I dive back in, I am really excited to only need to take two classes next semester. The prospect is delicious. That means that I can work or intern part-time. Which reminds me, I need to get my butt in gear about this summer. If I could have anything I wanted, though, I would be able to take a month off to decompress, clean the apartment so that it is finally spic and span, spend a week back home in San Francisco, and do what I please. Well, I suppose I would be happy with just two weeks 😉
