Well, I know one sign that my cold/allergies/upper respiratory infection is more or less gone.Â More productivity!
Last week and the week before were pretty much marked by a general unwillingness to do stuff.Â Sure, I got stuff done – a rough draft of a PSA I’m working on for a competition, among other things – but the two weeks just felt like a real lull.Â I was tired, fatigued, and felt burnt out every night.
Compare to this week.Â I shot a package yesterday, got the VOs done today, got halfway done with a video resume last night, more or less completed major work on the PSA today, handed in my writing portfolio today.Â Heck, I even sat through two hours of a class that I took last semester, just because I wanted to hear critiques of the PSA (a member of the team is working on it for the class).
Then I came back here, wrote readers, a VO, and an intro and tag and emailed them, changed my sheets, and folded my clothes.Â I’d claim reading 98 blog posts in my productivity list, but I actually just skimmed through a lot of them, and only read ones that got my attention.Â Can’t win them all, I guess.
I don’t know what it is.Â Some of it is that I know I needed to get some stuff done.Â Like the Writing Portfolio.Â It’s a school requirement that everybody has to do, major independent.Â With my trip to Vegas coming up, that’d be a whole week gone without doing it.Â Then I’d come back and be caught up with planning for the next Eastern Expedition.Â Under the circumstances, I guess this is the best week to do it.
Stuff to get done:
- Finish editing the package, including capturing the VOs (tomorrow)
- Finish editing the video resume, and get some opinions on it.
- Do a one-over of my resume for next week, and make a generalized cover letter.
- Prepare for phone interview.
- Get letter from gastro doctor (tomorrow I hope).
- Pack for Vegas (Friday & the weekend)
Quite a bit to before Monday, but I know it’ll get done.
