... Subtly passing one of those lines through that slow and painful process of attempting to make myself better.

By slow, I meant years worth of doing it painfully.

And also by slow, I meant the changes happens years after planning, contemplating before doing it.

THEN actually doing it and then having to do so consistently, AND THEN find out the causes why it fails, knowing what I did right at a time and what I did wrong the whole time that could've been perpetuated my whole life


I'm barely half way there.
But at least I've passed by certain marks.

the day before the 10kilometer, after work, took the bus to the expo. the expo was in a park. they did not have paper registration or accept cash. had to use phone and credit card. wasted $106 on a ten kilometer race (i earn $21 hour). picked up a race bib and shirt.

on saturday, brought two days' of lunches and put them in the refrigerator in the lockerroom at work.

went to bed 9pm. slept fine til 10pm. tried and failed to sleep until 2am. wanted to eat or binge on bread (which i sometimes do in the middle of the night). successfully refrained from eating. 2-4am slept fine.
____________________________________________________________________________

woke up a couple minutes before the alarm at 4am. ate the usual breakfast. bowel movement. took the first bus of the day @ 5am. some lil dipshit was loitering @ the bus stop and on the bus and was on the phone flapping his stupidass trap on the phone (something about "tacos" and "female"). (rolls eyes). pouring down rain. wore rain jacket, rain pants, three jackets under the rain jacket, sweatpants under the rainpants, and shorts under that. shoes, socks, baseball cap, umbrella. took the bus to the 10kilometer race. arrived 6:15am for the 7am race. (could've taken the second bus, but did not, b/c sometimes the bus is late or does not arrive altogether). 48 degrees fahrenheit not that cold. with other racers, loitered under a roof overhang until the races started.

the marathon and the 10 kilometer races started at the same time, in the same location. it was not that crowded, and there were not that many spectators. sprinkled briefly. uneventful. tripped and almost fell 2x over potholes. it was good. picked up a finishers medal. they had goodie packets but i didn't take one.
___________________________________________________________________________

after the 10kilometer, took the train to work. arrived @ work 1hour 45 minutes early. lied down in the lockerroom. shoes wet from the rain. the training room had free nachos and donuts, but, as usual, i did not eat any, b/c i was afraid of gaining weight.

Well, yesterday now, but I wrote about 20 pages into my newest book, Murder Upon Mercury; today I wrote my editor friend and another friend who might make cover art for it.

Solved the problem of why the upstairs hallway light keeps turning red, also the master bedroom lightswitch became unpaired from wifi so I tried putting a zigbee switch in but that wouldn't pair either so I managed to get the old switch to pair by turning the breaker off and on again and then running up the stairs indiana jones style and then pairing it before it switched to AP mode, researched different instant cameras and selected the best one and ordered a pink one for my mother's birthday because her nickname is Pinky and fixed my mechanical keyboard.

I'm going to use this thread to motivate me to do stuff.

My ADHD is so bad I don't get anything done.


I'm pre-writing these numbers

1.

2.

3.


and I won't come back until I've done three things.

I hope they'll be constructive.

I don't even have a to-do list because making one would have to be on my list.

I struggle to use things like to-do lists because they become additional tasks to get distracted by, rather than effective means of organizing. :oops:

To-do lists usually work well for me.

I'm too anxious and disorganised to even find a pen or make a to-do list, and when I do I lose them anyway.
Then if I find them I can't follow them because I don't work in linear order.

I still haven't done "anything" today.
Maybe about three very partial things.

Oh well. :twisted:

1. Paid one bill instead of doing a bunch of financial stuff which would have taken an hour.

2. Wiped the kitchen counter instead of cleaning the kitchen.

3. Tried to make notifications make sounds on my Macbook but gave up.
