Sometimes I have to admit – I kick ass. No, I really do. For the last few years I’ve been trying to concentrate on getting my shit done. I’ve gone as far as investing in stacks of steno pads from the local office supply store, and made genres for lists of things I have to get done. Because I’m a compulsive workaholic, I have about 15-20 steno pads, each with different genres like, “Medical” that list things like, “Dermotologist: Make checkup appointment…” The stenos are relatively small pads that fit in my commuter bag, have typical ruled lines, plus one additional vertical line that cuts through the center of each page. I stick my theme on the left (ie: “Dermotologist”) and put my details on the right (ie: “Call and make checkup appointment before she comes over and smacks you upside the head.”)
So far this system has been kicking ass. I’ve gotten so much done that I’ve moved on to one of my back-burner tasks: Empty my old PC hard drive and migrate the data – manually – to my external Mac hard drive via my iMac. I was briefly contemplating networking the two, but decided against it– in the time it would take to figure-out networking, I could manually migrate my data. And so here I am, 10:51pm on a Throwback Thursday, using 2GB flash drives to suck data off an old Windows XP to move to my external hard drive via Mac. Yes, there could definitely be an easier way to do it, but I’m satisfied. And so here I am.
During this tedious migration process, one of the files that I randomly opened was actually a post for this blog. I barely remembered writing it, and so Googled to see if I posted. Shockingly enough, the words didn’t show on my blog, they showed on someone else’s site: Alcohol Abuse Advice. Impressive. My listing was at the bottom: My Art of Letting Go: How to Recover After A Breakup. I had no idea I had been picked up – I barely remember posting! Check me out, down at the bottom, and if you get a chance, read that post by hitting the word “Source” at the bottom of their listing.
And as always, thanks for staying with me!
