Getting Things Done: The Modern To Do List

Everyone has to do lists. The trick is getting stuff on that list done. I’ve found a way to motivate myself that works for me. I use a website called Remember the Milk which is an online site that allows you to create to do lists and manage them for free. I have created customized lists for my everyday chores.

Feeling Insecure and Fat Pants

Fat pants. Ugh. Lately, I just feel yucky. I wish that I was slimmer, but it will take time. I’m still recovering from an injury to my ankle. My solution to feeling “yucky” is to try and look my best when I leave the house. I have some flattering pants and tops. Nothing too exciting, but it’s better than nothing. I would like to dress cuter, but nothing fits right now. My hope is that with more exercise and better eating habits I can fit into more clothes this fall.

Finding Work: New Avenues

I am unemployed, like many other people, and I am trying to be creative about career paths. One of the directions I am thinking about is to work in a non-profit helping people to get back into the work force. I like volunteering to help people gain literacy and I’d like to educate people as to how to write resumes, seek work and pass the GED. It isn’t a cake walk to get into the non-profit arena. It’s important to make contacts and volunteer at first. In Chicago, knowing how to speak Spanish is also very important.

Lemons to Llamas is happily written by Jessica, an artist, writer and graphic designer. My favorite colors are lime green and orange and I like thin crust pizza. My favorite movie is "It Happened One Night" with Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable.
