Looming Deadline

From Joanie:

I have a deadline tomorrow for an article, and after gathering my notes this morning, I:

1. Spent an hour and a half playing on the internet
2. Did a full vinyasa flow yoga workout
3. Made lunch, and made dinner ahead
4. Ate lunch while double screening: playing a movie and playing on the internet some more
5. Played with the cat
6. Took a nap (I blame the cat, she was sleepy and said it was a good idea)
I can haz nap?
7. Practiced for upcoming auditions
8. Printed some music for a gig
9. Repaired a ripped shirt
10. Baked two kinds of cookies (and before starting, I realized I was out of brown sugar, so I made a grocery run to pick some up)
11. Practiced for a few upcoming gigs
12. Organized paperwork into one neat binder that I’ve been meaning to do for a few months
13. Called a customer service rep for something I’ve been avoiding
14. Filled out three applications for singing gigs
15. Paced around the living room muttering to myself
AND:
16. Wrote this blog post.
Word doc is still empty for the article due tomorrow. 
Off to hang some hooks and organize my scarves, alphabetize the spice cabinet, and read a Ken Follett book. THEN I am totally going to work on that article.

  1. Oh Joanie!! I am so happy to read this and know that I am not the only one who approaches deadlines this way!! I could have written this myself, only without the cat to blame for my nap. I think naps are always a good idea.
