i'm a list driven person. if i don't have a list to follow, the parts of a big project (or even a small one) will seem overwhelming ("gah. i need to do homework. um, where do i start? ugh.") and then i find myself playing games and wondering where the last hour went. :) today was one of those days that i was going to spin my wheels if i didn't make a list. instead, i've washed and dried and put away (the last bit is rare, usually all of my clothes get used directly from the basket) two loads of laundry and hung up all the clothes that were lurking in the bottom of the closets and read a chapter in anthro and taken an econ quiz and finished my econ postings for the week and gotten most of the dishes done. i've no fear that the rest of the list will get done. it makes things seem more manageable, and i feel accomplished as i get to mark things off, which makes me feel better, which means i get more done... at least if i have problems finding motivation, i can fake it.

you'd think it wouldn't have taken almost 10 years of adulthood to figure this out. :)

dinner tonight is soup, i.e. "what do i have in the freezer that i can throw in a pot?" the answer is brown rice and brocholi and a little veggie broth and coconut milk and red curry powder. it's not bad. i overspiced it, again; fortunately, rice milk seems to be effective at cutting spiciness. :) one of these days i'll learn how to make a good curry.

the people in both of my classes are annoying me, i had an old old friend stop by for a couple hours worth of conversation today, i got in a good long walk, and i'm reading a book about the end of the world. :)
