I started making a list of things I needed to do while on the flight home yesterday. I always have Grand Visions of using flight time as "reflection time" and "goal-setting time" and "I'm gonna make my life better" time and "I want to start drawing again time"... or, sometimes, just "read a book" time. Instead, I usually (always) end up just sitting, either looking out the window or closing my eyes and pretending to sleep.
This list doesn't make much sense or have much direction, even by my generally loose standards. I definitely need to work on my list-making skills. Maybe I should add that to my list! Mwah hah hah!
I really need to work on my handwriting. I used to have kind of cool handwriting, as in, sometimes people would actually say, "you have really cool handwriting." It's, like, totally gone away. I should write more. By hand.
And also write more, as in, type stuff, on LJ or as photo captions (like this one -- if anyone's actually reading this, raise your hand) or maybe even put together some entries for my own totally ignored blog.
Someone (whom I've mentioned too frequently lately, so lest you think I'm obsessing or something, I'll refrain from naming) I know managed to post a couple of blog entries from a recent educational workshop, lengthy ones, with place names and people names and photos and photo credits and all that groovy jazz, while at the workshop. All I managed to do was stumble groggily off to bed at night, and barely manage to wake up the next day. I used to write stuff. It's been kind of a long time ago now since I wrote anything interesting, intelligent, or well-organized. Organized writing has become a serious challenge for me. I am not able to express myself anymore. Not like I ever could, but at least I could muster some sort of order out of my rambling. Now I'm like... guh!
There, ya see? Anymore, I end up at ...guh. Trying to organize my thoughts makes my brain shut down.
Anyway, list. Yeah. I already did one of the things on the list. I backed up my computer to an external drive. I don't wanna lose my trip photos.
First time I've ever been so concerned about losing trip photos. See "obsession" reference above.
'Kay den, got stuffs to do, 'stead of waste time on da intawebz.
