x listen to Beethoven's Sonatas Pathetique and Apassionata (if I can find the latter)
x drawing
spend some time reading

Edit: OK I have also gotten random other stuff done today but I don't think everybody needs to know exactly all the things I have done today...

Edit 2: I feel silly updating this. But whatever.

current mood: happy

Fucking pwned my goals yesterday. How did you do?

x how to feel fine: record basic guitar tracks
x fix wool sweater
x spend 20 minutes on helen's skirt
call rhodeside grill again
x call 0water again
x download/backup diotrans.us, or spend 30 mins on this
x various work-preparation-related tasks.
x if time: more drawing

I was thinking of switching to a community format so that we could all make posts and edit them, and then we could all cross out our stuff as we got them done. I feel bad that I'm the only one that can do that. And also, if I don't make a post on a particular day, nobody else can really post their goals. But then Vinnie pointed out that if we had a comm, we'd have n posts every day, where n could be anywhere from 0 to 5, or more since I'd probably invite more ppl to join the comm once we got it started. I'm personally fine with that, but maybe others are not. Thoughts?

current mood: good

10:11 am - Goals goals goals! (There's always too many goals!)
It's been a while! But with the new year and resolution-making and all this, I have heard people making noises about having a renewed interest in their goals. So shall we give this another go? I've been making my own daily goals lists, but perhaps you have some, too. So let's see it!

GUITAR and learning some new songs
x call the Black Cat
- contact 3 venues that I've already contacted and have the right contact person for (i've decided i'm not doing this)
x write to cousin Sherry
practice singing
if time: draw something, clean my room

In fact, maybe we can all post about what our goals in general are right now in life.

my goalsCollapse )

current mood: happy

I wrote this post a few days ago:

My goal this month is to have my demo completely recorded and finished by the end of the month.
That's really it.


Sorry I haven't been posting lately. I've been doing my usual boring goals of contract work, music practice, and exercise, I just haven't been posting it to this journal.

Feel free to post your goals and your progress as always. I have been thinking about the whole concept of getting things done, and the various blocks to productivity that we all encounter. I was thinking about writing some of my thoughts on the matter, because over the years, it's something that I've given a lot of thought to. Over the past few years, and especially the last year, I think I have really changed from having an overwhelming list of vague things I want to do, to having tangible goals that I really achieve. So I just thought if I wrote from my experience, that other people might find something useful in it, possibly more useful than our current system of posting intermittent goals and progress (though the two are not mutually exclusive). Would anybody be interested in reading such a series of posts?

I'm going to post the things I do after I do them, instead of making the list beforehand and crossing stuff off. (No real reason, just feel like it today.)

TODAY - Gerbil machine! (yay) Finished up loose ends in contract work. Almost done!!!

Sorry I haven't been keeping up better with your goals.

Paul - Looks like you've been pondering the survey, and you eventually wrote the LJ entry, so good for you ^_^ I'm going to assume that the dishes from 3 days ago have been done ^_^;
Ross - Forever ago, you said your goals were working out, going to sleep earlier, and develop more film? Uh, still doing that stuff? .)
Pie - Don't not practice today ^_^ I know you haven't posted goals in a while, but there, I am giving you one. Yes your first name is Pie.

11:34 am - April accomplishments
I've been feeling really bummed out and kind of down on myself that I'm not getting anywhere with things. So I thought it might make me feel better if I made a list of things that I accomplished last month. This may seem like bragging, but... well fine. It's bragging. I don't care .)

things I've done in AprilCollapse )

All right I'm bored of this, I'm not sure it's making me feel any better.

I've got an audition practice for and go to, so no other goals for today, really.

current mood: kinda bummed
