Mid-way assessment

Chuukan hyouka

So I made New Year's resolutions. Resolutions are made to be broken, right?

1. My desk is still messy.

2. I have not written anything on it. I did three new presentations this year so far, but that doesn't really count as writing as far as work is concerned. I did a lot of proofreading on a different "public space" desk, though.

3. I have not reassessed my career plan. I do know that I probably can't stay where I am for more than a few years, so this is definitely something I need to do.

4. I am still getting up at 5:30 every morning. The time between when I finish brushing my teeth and the Pumpkin Princess comes downstairs (something like half an hour) is the only time I have to myself at home. It has been put to good use. Things like sewing, decluttering, making the occasional boxed lunch, and prepping presentations (see #2) have been done during this time frame. I should probably post pictures of the lunches I made for the Pumpkin Princess earlier this month.

5. I think I am doing less late night junk food than last year, but not so much because I have made an effort to do so as much as it just kind of working out that way.

So I think I will clean my desk a little tomorrow. If I feel like it. If.

Yes, exactly... 5:30-6:00 = the only time to oneself.

And most days I use it to empty the dishwasher and make tea.

Maybe someday I'll do something more productive with it.

Emptying the dishwasher and making tea are extremely productive activities! To be more precise, NOT doing these activities results in lowering of productivity.
