I'm writing in an attempt to get something done. I've tried to start a project 5 times and just keep staring at a blank page. I know I don't want to do this, and I know I should do this, but I just can't get over that "activation energy" to get myself going. I've told myself just work on it 5 minutes, and I can't even do that. I can work on this for one minute, but it mostly involves me staring at the screen for an hour.

I've got an outline done for my christmas letter, which is something, but it's not the work they're paying me to do right now. And I'm not sure how the photos turned out, really. I think some serious photoshopping will be necessary, here. Or, as zen_raven said, I can do a collage sort of thing. Enh.

And now I'm going to get up and walk for a bit to clear my head and then try and write this draft of a silly email that is causing me so many problems.

hmm. sema doesn't detect winamp v3 music.

Sometimes it helps me to think about doing something in terms of how I'm going to feel about it tomorrow, or even right after I'm done. I'll think "gee, the person I am tomorrow is going to be grateful to the me right now for doing this."

That's just me, of course. Well, me at my best. Often I'll just distract myself or run away and go for long walks in places I haven't been for a long time. I'm not endorsing that, of course. But it does help me feel better at the time. ;) In any case, I hope you're having a great day. God bless. :)

thanks. :)

I did get that email written, it was just a matter of writing to tell myself to do it, mostly. And to get up and take a quick walk to clear the staring at the screen stuff.

What works for me is to have surprise deadlines slammed in my face.


It may be just me, but I think Winamp 3 sucks. I'm sticking with 2.8.

I think it sucks, too, but there was some reason i needed to upgrade.

My personal work favorite is supposedly being someone's peer and being on a call where your peer says "no, having Heather on the call is not good enough; you have to include me."
