  • text at least 500 voters before polls close (more a personal goal than a to-do, but including it anyways for the sake of being able to cross it off and feel productive)
  • apply to at least 3 more jobs
  • re-dye roots
  • edit videos
  • stay on top of nano word count trajectory
  • make tattoo appointment

 

 

a fully crossed off list is a 10/10 feeling 😋 slightly shorter list this week due to friends coming into town and other various social obligations:

  • edit this week's videos
  • start planning gift guide posts
  • 2 more job applications
  • send thank-you notes to interviewers
  • start making holiday shopping list
  • pack for thanksgiving trip
  • continue to stay on top of nano word count (with an emphasis on finishing this jily au)
  • edit complex chapter 4 and get it posted on saturday
  • make graphics/picspams/etc.

haha i like how i said this list was going to be shorter 🙃 guess i'm saying goodbye to a normal sleep schedule for the next few days!!

November has been slightly busy for me and I'm going to create a separate list in a journal or something like that but here's some of the things that I need to do:

  • Catch up on NanoWriMo so I can get to my next word count
  • Prepare for second and follow up job interview 
  • Do some chores including the dishes and laundry
  • Work on separate job applications (for back up if second interview doesn't go well)
  • Do something in the archive (read a story, work on a review, anything--just a personal task)

This thread is so tempting to me because I love making lists (and subsequently doing only half of the things on the list, then giving myself a break to watch Jeopardy!). I gotta power through my final weeks of the semester though, so here's my to-do list for the next three weeks!

  • Finish writing my appellate brief for Legal Writing II. Namely, the Argument and Statement of the Facts
  • Work on practice exams for Constitutional Law; add information about substantive and procedural Due Process to my outline
  • Outline for Evidence and work on practice multiple choice questions
  • Write the introduction and conclusion for my Sexuality and the Law seminar paper, and edit all 20 pages
  • Work in the law library

And now for some HPFT-related things!:

  • Interact on HPFT at least once every other day
  • Post two chapters of my novel to the archives
  • Leave three reviews
  • Post a writing challenge (to be done after December 7th)

...It's not a huge list, but cramming some of this knowledge in my head is going to be a real challenge. Let's hope I can sail beautifully through!

@UnluckyStar57 Why are you up in here giving me flashbacks? 😨 In all seriousness though, I hope law school is going well. If you need to rant about it to anyone, you know where to find me.

P.S.: Evidence is my jam and I may or may not have sample tests I've created for my mock trial students...
