Hilarious time management strategy of the day.

I liberated some strips of paper from the scrap heap next to the paper cutter and sliced them into two-inch pieces. Then I wrote one item from my to-do list on each piece, folded it, and tossed it into my (clean) lunch bowl. Then I drew a piece of paper and got saddled with that task until I finished it. So far so good--though I should point out that there wasn't actually a piece of paper that said "stop what you're doing and blog about it." Also I cheated once because there was a related task I really needed to finish. Anyway. This is what I'm reduced to.

Uh, bye bye June, I hardly knew ye.

Apparently I didn't blog in June. I guess it's because I was doing other things! Such as things on my WIP list! And it's true, I did stick to the June project. It ended up being lots of sewing, which was just fine with me. The point of the project was to avoid sitting on the couch as my default post-work activity. Sometimes I legitimately want to chill on the couch, of course. But I followed it up with some WIP stuff every time, and then last week I went on vacation for almost a week. Even that qualified as WIP, if you ask me, because I was meeting some awesome people in the meat world for the first time, and that shit has been on my to-do list for actual years. It was brilliant and relaxing and just GOOD. And concurrently, I have kept up Move Yer Ass, again except for vacation.

So now it's the end of the month and I need another project for two days from now. If you have any ideas, let me know. I'm probably going to do Buy Nothing (except foodstuffs), but that kind of feels like a passive project. It's also one I've done before. So there could be a more active project on top of that, and then I would really feel like I'm doing something. Or I don't know, maybe I'll just stick to a daily skin routine for the entire month and see if I can keep the greaseball look to a minimum.

Also, I might go platinum, hair-wise. But that would only take a day.
