Today is Sat Aug 19.

That means I have seven days to pack and clean, three days to move, and half a day to clean before I have to hand back the keys to this here apartment. (Double-counting the day on which we get the keys to our new apartment. And WHY did I not ask for Mon 28 off too? My sorry ass is going to be cleaning that day from eight to three-thirty and working for that paycheck from four to midnight!)

This apartment does not look moving-ready. This apartment looks like the aftermath of Hurricane Alex—send in the Red Cross!

My todo list has seven sections. Each section has from four to fifteen bullet points. While most are once they're done they're done, some of them will need done more than once this week. (Six of the day's bullets are four instances of "eat" and two of "feed cat", and "rest 10min for every 20min working" will appear as often as it damn well needs to, but that's totally beside the point.)

My anxiety level is already RED ALERT. My spoon level has spent a lot of time recently at DANGER DANGER, and isn't terribly far above that now. (I got my psych doc to prescribe lorazepam for as-needed over the next couple weeks, in order to calm my shit because 100% focus on calming centering breaths means nothing else gets done and less than 100% focus on etc was for days meaning being on the verge of an anxiety attack, but. And no, having other warm bodies to help—except on Sat 26, which is furniture hauling day—is not apparently an option; I keep asking.)

I need all the cheerleading I can get!

It should be pretentious and snobbish to say: “Sure I eat hot dogs, I have homemade mustard and homemade lingonberry ketchup on it”. Then to take the DIY philosophy serious you have to make the hot dog yourself.

Context sounds delicious!

Mid-week Anti-procrastination Post

[personal profile] peaceful_sands posting in [community profile] bitesizedcleaning
Well, it's a little belated but we've not got to the weekend here yet, so I figure we're still good to call it a midweek anti procrastination post.

So what have you been tackling? How's that motivation going? What's your priority absolutely must not be procrastinated task?

If you're in need of a challenge or a little encouragement.... Hmmm, now let me think... How about 10 minutes (or whatever time suits) to tackle something clothing related - suggestions include : sorting washing into loads that can be done together, actually tackling a load of laundry, handwashing some items, folding some dry clothes, ironing, re-organising a drawer, shelf or wardrobe space to make it more user friendly. I'm sure there are other related tasks. Ooh, I've thought of another - repairing an item e.g. sewing a button on.

Set the timer for the amount of time you think you can spare or manage energy wise and go for it. Surprise yourself with just how awesome you are! And share with us.

Good luck, team! You're awesome!

Mickey Rowe at Teen Vogue:
"Netflix's "Atypical" Was a Major Disappointment for Autism Representation"

http://www.teenvogue.com/story/netflix-atypical-autism-representation

In watching the show, I noticed that it seems to play into stereotypes that I’ve experienced firsthand that could have easily been avoided and that may present damaging information about autistic people. There is so much misinformation about autism in part because we nearly always learn about autism from non-autistic people, instead of learning about autism from autistic adults.

Lynne Thomas of Uncanny Magazine writes about her daughter Caitlin, who doesn't speak and communicates a lot. Lynne reviews the overwhelming privilege of the spoken word in SF:

reading game PDFs

[personal profile] yhlee posting in [community profile] ebooks
I was wondering what folks would recommend as a solution for reading tabletop RPG and other PDFs? I used to do this on a Kindle DX, but sometimes the graphics-heavy ones would cause it go slow, and then my DX broke, and I don't think they make new ones anymore so I don't trust them? I have a Kindle Paperwhite, but the screen size is a no-go because they typically make some full-sized (8.5"x11" or thereabouts). And ideally I'd like to be able to just load them from my desktop using a USB cable. I have an older iPad, but it doesn't have the USB thing and it's no good to me because my husband and daughter steal it to play games. XD Help?

Anti-procrastination Tuesday

Aug. 8th, 2017 06:19 pm
peaceful_sands: butterfly (Default)
[personal profile] peaceful_sands posting in [community profile] bitesizedcleaning
Tuesday has rolled around and it's a bit of a disappointment (principally because I spent a good portion of the day believing it was Wednesday...). But all said, it's still time to stop procrastinating and get stuff done. So what'll it be? What are you tackling today? (or tomorrow, or both if you feel like it?)


Are you in need of a little challenge? A little outside motivation? So hmmm, what could it be? For a small challenge, can you repeat the one we used at the weekend - find five things and take them to their correct home. For something bigger - repeat the challenge as many times as you have energy for - 2, 3, 4 or 5 - just imagine the progress you'll have made. As an alternative, set a timer for 5 minutes and tackle a job for that amount of time - 5 minutes worth of washing up, five minutes worth of cleaning, five minutes worth of vacuuming, five minutes of sorting papers - it doesn't matter which but you'd be amazed how much difference a concerted five minutes of action can make - just to prove you're awesome - Wonder Woman and Superman have nothing on you!

I would say having a bird is like a very very very very minor version of having a small child except that it's more like having a tiny version of myself, age 32, viz:


8 am:

me: Good morning little sunshine! How are you? Wakey wakey!
Bird, glowering: enhhhhhh
Bird, half an hour later: enhhhhhhh
Bird, forty-five minutes later, still hiding under covered portion of cage: ENHHHHHH
Bird, minute 53: ::glumly meanders over to the seed tray::
Bird, minute 60: okay. okay. okay. Chirp.

Bird, hours 2 - 18: CHIRP. Chirp? Chirp! CHIRP.
Bird: WHAT IS THAT
Me: that's your swing, bird, it's been here forever.
Bird: IT IS MY ENEMY.
Bird: it is my friend?
Bird: I think I'm going to flirt with it.
Bird: I think I'm going to KICK IT. HWAH! HWAH!
Bird: IT ATTACKED ME RUN RUN RUN RUN
Bird: ... ... ... what is THAT?

Bird: the bell goes ding!
Bird: the bell goes ding!
Bird, four hours later: Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! THE BELL, IT GOES DING.

   Hello all. I have just arrived here, still figuring things out. Thought I'd say hi though. I am known as Emo-Snal back in the old country. I'm a professional beekeeper from California now living in an adorable little village on the southern edge of Australia on the verge of a temporate rainforest. I live alone with a pet basil plant named Theodora and there's an awesome cat that people misconstrue as my pet but really he isn't and I'm not just saying that. He just loves to hang out with me. We're BFFs.
