Yesterday I accomplished much of what I set out to do.  But not all, at little fault of my own.  I couldn’t find The Secretary of State after church, so I didn’t get a chance to talk to her.  I’ll have to send an email to her today about meeting my predecessor.

The Boys were not available for brunch, so I went straight home.  I did buy a half kilo of Guatemalan coffee for my parents first.

I applied to the mentoring organization, doing it quickly to avoid the doubt that would have followed, then collected my references.  One had to be from an employer, so that’s the Saint.  His response to my asking his permission was “Sure, feel free…”  It was the ellipse that makes me wonder about that reaction.  The King also agreed to recommend me.  I was a little worried about him, but he seemed very open to the idea.  I don’t think he’s deceiving me.  Jess is my last reference.  My reluctance there is that she doesn’t live locally, and that may look bad.  But I think she would be able to convince them that that isn’t an issue.

Boy Scouts didn’t happen.  The local council’s website is horrible.  Impossible to find information on volunteering.  Maybe that’s on purpose, because they don’t want random people.  People like me, basically.

FAFSA’s done, though.

So for today.  Groceries, CCs, Laundry, Oil change is done, practice, more boy scouts, and finally, financial institutions.

Alrighty.  Not a bad showing for a chronic lazy bum.  I applied to college, went grocery shopping, got my oil and wiper blades changed and called my bank to get information about how to transfer my investments to their brokerage service.

I have not folded nor finished my laundry, practiced or volunteered as a boy scout leader.  If I can get my courage up, I’ll go to the scout meeting down the street at 7:30 tonight and get that last one done.  I’ll fold laundry before bed tonight.  I think I’ve lost on practicing though.  Now I’m going to do more stuff that I don’t need to do and make a youtube video.

Right back into things.  I got home around 6 last night, went to BBM’s house to watch a TV show, and now I’m on a one hour break, back at work, pulling a double.  Joy.

On the other hand, I don’t have work tomorrow or Monday, and not until noon on Tuesday.  A little worried about Tuesday, though, since I have my first rehearsal with the choir Sue recommended me for that night at 8.  I need to make sure that I’ll be out of work absolutely no later than 6.  Preferably 5.

But, in the interest of starting off on the right foot, I’m going to outline what needs to happen before Tuesday since I’m not resolved to manage my time well.  Maybe if I put in in writing here, I’ll keep myself to it.  I’ll feel like I’m letting  down more than myself, which I’ve proven I am more than willing to do.

On Monday AM (preferably before 10) I will get the oil changed and new wiper blades.  Long overdue.  Later in the day Monday I need to practice.  I’m not going to set an interval since I won’t stick to it anyway, but practicing needs to happen.  Right after the oil change.

Sunday PM I will do further research into the technology programs at various CCs.  It’s looking like a diploma program in networking from the community college in the next county over.  I need to start the application process as well.  This will need to carry over into Monday as well, since I want to call the colleges and talk to people there about options and financial aid.

Financial aid.  I can start filling out the FAFSA on Sunday.

And finally, the Boy Scouts.  I need to begin that process Sunday as well.  If I need recommendations then I can’t finish it, but I can get most of it done.  And start the application process for the mentoring program as well.

So.  Sunday:
10:00 The Citadel. I need to talk to the Secretary of State about sitting down with the old assistant before the end of the year.
1:00 Maybe brunch? Wouldn’t be bad to skip this week.
3:00 or as soon as I get home. Boy Scout and mentoring apps. Followed by FAFSA, then research into programs of study.
When finished: TV

Monday:
9:30 Oil change
11:00 Practice
1:00 Call CCs to talk about study.
2:30

Have to go back to work.  Will finish later.

There was something I needed to remember…

…but I forgot it.
