My alarm goes off at 6:00 in the morning.
By 6:02, I am already 45 minutes behind schedule. And, seriously, it's not like my life is all that packed. I mean, I go to school, I chill with some high school kids, I sit around at Robotics. It's not like I am running a Fortune 500 company or anything. Seriously.
And yet, at the end of the day, I have failed to complete any of the tasks that I should be getting done. I especially seem to have a huge problem with small, simple tasks--tasks that should take, literally, 5 minutes to complete.
Big Task: Prepare non-profit year-end audit (did it)
Small task: Buy a pair of safety goggles (did not do it)
Big Task: Write 25 Thank You notes (did it)
Small Task: Put the notes in the mailbox (did not do it)
(This is a real pain in the ass, because I wrote some of the original thank you notes on fabulous Valentine notecards but now that Valentine's Day is two weeks past and the cards are still sitting, unstamped, in my book bag, I will have to rewrite them.)
Big Task: Prepare a calendar of dates for my AP class (did it)
Small Task: Make ten photocopies of the calendar (did not do it)
I'm going to blame this all on February, what with it being two days short of a real month and all, and make March a month of progress. If only I can catch up with myself.
