Have you looked at Free Rice.com? Every time you answer a question it donates 10 grains of rice, one of the categories of questions is Geography. A fun break from my other work and I feel like I'm learning.


I like your productivity ideas! For me, the challenge is just using my planner. For some reason, scribbled notes on sheets of paper work better than any planner I've tried. I just wish they were prettier :-( I love the idea of a weekly goal and a limited number of daily goals. However, if I limited myself to 5 goals a day, they'd all be school oriented. I think I'll have to mull this over and see how I can adapt the idea to my grad student lifestyle.


Glad you are being productive! I had similar goals for this year but ended up nursing an injury for the past 3 weeks and has left me off track. But you inspired my 24 before 24 blog and I am keeping with it!



Perhaps it is an Aquarian thing. I also checked in and found January to be a productive month! Here's the post on my blog: http://pearlinparis-pearl.blogspot.com/2011/01/january-31-check-in-with-2011-goals.html

And also to my tribute to Aquarius: http://pearlinparis-pearl.blogspot.com/2011/02/happy-birthday-aquarius.html


I need a planner like that! And, wowee, do I need to go through my 3 email accounts--yikes!

I've taken to creating an Excel spreadsheet for my address book and hosting it on GoogleDocs. I've shared with my mom, sister & husband to update when needed for family and friends. It has become our main address book for the past year and it works! I can even track cell numbers, birthdays & anniversarys.

And I just realized I'm a huge nerd.
