last night was crazy – ani kept us up until 2 in the morning, and i had to be up at 530, of course, in order to “beat” traffic, if you can call it that, since it’s still bumper to bumper. with so little sleep, wasn’t sure i’d be able to stick to my newly minted schedule, but i think i did a pretty ok job…didn’t do a short monday as was in the schedule, and stayed back until 7. got some work done, and planned out AID work. off now…the desire for sleep seems to be permeating every pore…must. drink. coffee.

this is my schedule, and i’m sticking to it!

i can’t count the number of times i’ve sat on a weekend and berated myself for not managing my time better. typically, these sessions culminate in a brand new plan of action, which promptly get discarded come tuesday or wednesday. here we go once again. after the move last weekend, i’ve had a pretty chaotic week, what with the added commute time, the u-haul truck fiasco, and transforming the new apartment from a complete pig sty into something a little more habitable. the first casualty of all of this has been work, and with a looming deadline, it’s time to get things straightened out a little. so, without further ado, i present my new weekly schedule:

ok, so i also need a plan to keep to this plan. one thing that will help this time is that a lot of this stuff i have to stick to just because of the commute. the main challenge is always in sticking to the work hours, and not getting sucked into the various time-sinks that are out to get me on the web. maybe the reason i have so much difficulty staying focused on work is that i don’t really like what i’m doing all that much. or maybe i’m just lazy. ooooh, totally forgot to add vipassana to the schedule. want to get back to sitting down on a regular basis. will have to add that to the wake-up routine. man, it’s tough caring for a baby!
