I’ve got a lot going on. And I know people say that all the time as a way to get out of keeping some sort of other commitment, but I truly do. I was really hoping my spring break (from Bowen School of Law) would have been more productive than it has. My plans included:
- Get caught up on Contract II and Crim Law outlines
- Complete remaining Legal Research assignments
- Read and thoroughly research for appellate brief
- Read upcoming assignments for all classes
- Clean house from top to bottom
- Give the car a thorough washing
- Take a short vacation somewhere
- Get taxes filed
- File all paperwork at office
- Attend at least 3 gym classes
- Get ThanksBud presentation to a solid point
- Spend some time w/ friends
- Grill out w/ Mom
- Find better t.v. plan
- List old books on Amazon and Half
- New design for blog
There’s probably more I can’t think of right now, and it’s a long list, but you’d think I’d be able to complete them all in 10 days. Needless to say, I didn’t even complete half of these. I’m not sure why, but it seems like the earlier I wake up and start my day, the faster the day goes by. You try to prioritize, you try to sacrifice sleep and free time to get to the things you want to get to, and in the end, what was a break ends up being more exhausting than any other regular time of the year.
So, a couple of other things. I am going on a short little trip. Wes and I are going to Branson this weekend to do some outlet shopping. We’ll be staying at the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing. We haven’t gone anywhere in a long time, so it’ll be really nice to get away, even if only for a very short weekend.
I wish someone would make some software that would ask and store my username and password every time I made a new account to anything. Sort of like the popup works on Mozilla to “remember.” What I want to happen is when I create a new account, a box will come up and make me enter the account info, and store it, and if I need to view it I can, and if I want the info filled in on my next visit, it’ll enter it for me. I know there are programs that will store your usernames and passwords for you (I use Keepass) but I want a smarter system. One that will store info at every site I log in to. Someone should get on that and get back to me, thanks.
One final note. Why do I feel guilty about not logging in every day to all the web apps I register for? My life is slowly being taken over by the Internet. I did a pretty good job of not allowing this to happen in case I ever ended up in some third-world country where Internet was not available (very likely to happen seeing as how Branson is the farthest I’ve been able to travel in over a year) but they make life so much easier, so I’m giving in. “Easier” might be the wrong word. It’s hard to call something easier when every time I turn my computer on, I feel a sort of panic when I look at my RSS reader and find 500+ postings I haven’t read. Or the vast amount of tweets I missed. Or even the new photos people post on Facebook. What’s more is I have to somehow remember to correctly categorize my transactions on Mint, make sure there are no new discussions on Westlaw and double check my Google calendar and shared docs to find out what I’ve got going on with co-workers. Add TMZ, People Mag’s pics, CNN, Eonline, and ESPN and you’re looking at a couple of hours that can be lost just attempting to make life easier. So, yeah…easier was the wrong word. What I guess I meant to say was “they make life more informed.”
