My {Filofax} Week 8

Paper Lovestory's My Week

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful week

Here’s my week {I apologize for posting this picture again…}:

Filofax Week 8

And for a quick recap of what happened {in case you aren’t at all interested in reading about my life}:

  • Another boring/empty week.
  • My attempt at getting back on track with my room renovations didn’t happen.
  • I failed at the photo challenge once again.
  • I had a total of 2 meetings, one of which was cancelled.
  • Getting my assignments done for grad school is getting worse and worse.
  • I got a snazzy new remote that I love.
  • and I’m almost caught back up on YouTube videos.

And for the longer version {for those of you who like to read or are just nosy :)}:

  • I’ve really been trying to focus on myself lately. My past relationship really had me neglecting a lot of  things around the house and other areas of my life. I’m a fairly introverted person, so I really prefer to just do things on my own a lot. Don’t get me wrong, I love people and meeting new people, but after 8 hours of work, I just like to relax.
  • I planned on stopping at Home Depot to pick up paint supplies, but that didn’t happen. There’s something about a girl walking into Home Depot (and other “manly” stores that makes guys go “What is she doing? She must be so lost.” I’m not one of those girls, so I don’t exactly appreciate being treated like one, hence why I try to avoid Home Depot. I did manage to clean my shower though, so that is a start.
  • I’m going on Week 2 of not taking ONE picture. I’m seriously thinking about just calling it quits on this photo challenge and picking back up in March.
  • Last week was fairly quiet work-wise but I kicked it into high gear Friday. Friday morning, I met with my boss and our two senior students. It’s an interesting mix at my work because the students I manage are my age. My bosses all have kids my age. It doesn’t always help my reputation at work. Customers never see me as a supervisor because I look like a student. When I got back from the meeting, I went into brainstorming overload and created a web group so that our student staff could communicate with each other more easily. I also stumbled upon a collection of old documents, one of which was a lateness and attendance policy. Lateness has always bothered me given that we operate based on shifts. When someone doesn’t show up, their extra work falls on me. I modified the policies and they are now in effect as of today, February 25th.
  • I started college as a pre-pharmacy student. Two years in, I realized it wasn’t for me and switched to Psychology because I didn’t want to be in school for 8+ years. Fast forward to today, and I’m in graduate school looking at additional years anyway… go figure. I’ve always procrastinated, but something about graduate school (and an online program at that) makes it so easy to procrastinate. I have this idea in my mind that I’ve already graduated so I’m “done” with school, except I’m not. My program isn’t hard, but I just don’t want to do the work. Needless to say, my work was completed at 1pm on Sunday, only 10 hours before it was actually due. I don’t like cutting it that close so I need to get back on track.
  • My fancy new remote came in the mail. I ordered a Harmony One Advanced remote to replace my old Harmony 880 I’ve had for a few years ago. The color screen on my old one had faded which is typical of that model so I’ve wanted to upgrade for a while. The Harmony One Advanced is discontinued, but I didn’t like the newer model that replaced it. I managed to get it for a pretty good price and it came with an extra battery, so I’m fairly pleased.
  • Instead of reading during my lunch breaks, I tried to remember to bring my iPad and headphones and I caught up on a LOT of videos. A lot as in my “Watch Later” playlist on Youtube went from over 100 videos to 45. Of course, I was watching the shortest ones first so now the ones I have left are all 14 minutes or longer…

Oh and update on Zoey… all is well. Her x-rays looked much better. They did find that she has chips missing out of her spine though which probably causes her pain and explains why she’s clumsy and quite lazy. In any event, she’s happy again, and so are we.

See you all next week!
