Review Days 6-7

What’s the deal?
I’m sure you noticed I didn’t review yesterday and I didn’t post about this morning either.  And this review is also coming much earlier than the other ones, time-wise.  Well, you’re right.  Yep, that’s about all I have to say about that.

OK…so…?
Yesterday, however, went fine.  I got things done, I worked very hard for about 7 hours on my PC cleanup project and got it almost completed, though I hit a snag when I couldn’t just reformat the hard drive like I had thought I would be able to.  I’m going to see if I can boot it up from a boot disk and if that doesn’t work, then I guess I’m stuck reinstalling Windows on the machine for a second time.  That would really suck, but if it’s the only option, then I guess that settles the argument.

Alright… today?
Today I woke up on time, but kept lounging around in bed for a while, and had to jump up and get ready for work, rushing in for the morning shift on a Wednesday morning.  Oh yea, we were busy.  No, we really weren’t.  Oh well, it was with a friend and a slow, quiet morning, so we had a decently good time.  I got a tad bit of Christmas shopping done (as in one gift) and did some errands for my mom, so in that mode I was productive.

Come on!  Productivity…?
In my own pursuit, though, I got home and didn’t work on my own projects.  I even was prodded politely by the man I’m working for (not officially, but I’m helping him out on a project he’s working on for a friend of his) asking how my progress was going on the project.  Not so good.  I guess I haven’t been home for a long time, and I can still schedule some work time around food and my nightly entertainment/wind-down session in the basement with some good movie-watchin’.  Tomorrow though I’m going to have to study for my final exam in Sociology – and then it’s finally over!

The whole she-bang!
The productivity project was fun.  It was a great chance to figure out how I work, how I might want to work, and really how I should work and approach my daily life in terms of task-, time- and goal-management.  I still have a lot to learn and a lot of work to do in the area, and I think I’ll keep up the posting on here about each day with a regular, if shorter, installment of the day’s progress.  I’m going to eat dinner, followed by a roto session, followed by my nightly wind-down and fun time.  If anybody’s interested in productivity, definitely keep checking back here, or subscribe to the RSS feed, and check out David Seah’s blog I mentioned a few times throughout this series.  Right now though, I’m off to eat some tasty food.  Yummy!

Christmas Spirit

My mom and my sister are making waffles right now, and we’re going to decorate our Christmas tree after breakfast, so it should be a fun day.  I got a MacBook laptop recently for the college move and I’m sitting right now in the living room in front of a fire with my dog resting his oversized head on my lap, and typing this blog post to you.  It’s a nice morning, heh.  He twitches every time I brush past his ear with my hand.  Oh, and here comes the plow I think, now I’ll get ot drive to work later.  Heh, and the dog’s off to investigate the growling noise of the engine.  I’ll talk to you later.  Have a wonderful holiday, and thanks for wishing the same.  I hope things are very happy and warm.
