I win! Updates...

  • I've finished my "summer" class and ended up with an A. That ought to help boost my poor beleaguered GPA ;-)
  • I had a job interview this morning. I think it went well? But then I'm also a pretty horrid judge of these things, so we'll see. They said they'd let me know either way by Wednesday. Fingers crossed!
  • I am still not done my essays. This makes me want to punt myself in the head. What I need it to make me want to do, is DO THE ESSAYS. Argh. I have ten more days on my self-imposed deadline. Dangit, I can do this!
  • Have been walking with Dear Karey a few times but we both want to go more so we feel a little less like slugs :P
  • Had a healthy lunch today- happy with myself.
  • Going to take a little rest before work.
  • Looking forward to tonight but I can't tell you why just yet, just in case!
  • More later.
  • Ciao

Well, I can't sleep (surprise) but it's too late to take a sleeping pill, since I have to get up in 6 hours and a pill has the potential to knock me out for about 12 - if it works. So instead I'm going to assign myself the fascinating task of filling out my student loan application. Isn't that special. I also want to outline a few goals for myself for the month of June - and add some accountability by posting them here!

June Goals

  • Walk at least three times a week
  • Don't eat out so much!
  • Invite someone to dinner at least twice
  • Finish outstanding essays
  • Attend all remaining computing classes (barring extreme circumstances)
  • Recycle, recycle, recycle (We have curbside recycling now, so I have absolutely no excuse.)
  • Extend to myself the same grace I would to others
  • Kick my own butt when necessary
