The other day, M said there’s a ton of shit He does to maintain my mental health issues and/or keep me from getting upset with myself over them.  And it was a pretty solid wake-up call.  So I’m in the process of looking around for mind exercises that won’t bore me to death, or cost me anything to do.  If anyone has any suggestions, they would be much appreciated.

As much as I make fun of Cin for how much she organizes and re-organizes her days, and her computers, and everything else, I’ve been going crazy trying to keep this laptop organized.  However, unlike Cin, I started this Macbook out the way I want it, and I’m gonna keep it the way I want it, and I’m hoping that’ll do wonders for keeping me on task.  And also unlike Cin, I’m not gonna just suddenly decide I need to use different organization tactics, and reorganize the whole damn thing.  And finally, unlike Cin, I’m not gonna make redundant lists and spreadsheets all over the place.  (Don’t worry.  Cin knows I love her, and I’m mostly teasing.  Mostly.Read more…
