The Daily Post

How do you stay focused on a task or activity? What do you do when you need to concentrate or get things done? (Say, writing a blog post)

Blog posts are no problem to focus on, most of the time.  Usually I start them and then leave them in the drafts for a bit before I actually go back and edit them.  They are almost always started after midnight too, it seems.

Focusing on everything else is what is difficult! I usually just write out a to-do list and hope that one by one I tackle the items on it.  Then once there aren’t too many items left on it, I write out a new list to condense an add stuff to it.

However, if the task has ANYTHING to do with cleaning – especially my room – it will get put off for as long as humanly possible.  Every now and then I get motivated to clean my room, but that never lasts for long. (Which is why I have been working on the major overhaul of my bedroom for the past 3 or so weeks!)

Piggy Bank Goal

You may remember one of my goals for 2010 was to put all my change into a bank and then at the end of the year see how much I had saved.

I pulled out all the quarters, because I figured it would be silly to bring it to the bank when I’d end up taking it back out later before I go on a penny trip.  I had $14 in quarters.

Then my mom said she would give me dollars for dollar coins, so I pulled those out – there were 27.  (I get 3 of these every time I buy a round trip train ticket to NYC – so I must have bought 9 through the course of the year to end up with $27, because I don’t think I get these in change anywhere else)

And finally – we brought the pennies, nickels and dimes to the bank.  I was pretty sure I only had like $5 or $7.  My mom looked at the bag and guessed that it was $17.  The bank counter said it was $19.32.  I guess I need to spend more time around change LOL  I thought it was mostly pennies, but I guess not!

So all total, I had saved $60.32 over the course of a year in my pocket change!

My first day of High School.

How was your first day of High School? Get locked in a locker? Sit by the cute and popular guy at lunch? Were you nervous? Did you get lost trying to find your classes?

I was incredibly nervous my first day of high school and ended up missing 4 of my first 8 days of school because I was having adjustment problems.  Or maybe I was just having really, really bad post concert depression as I had seen (and met) Hanson for the first time the night before. It was around this time I was diagnosed with TMJ (which, 8 years later, may finally be on its way to going away thanks to my braces…)
