Weekly review: November 28 - December 4, 2011

This week’s been full of early days, which gave me the time to pummel through on educational tasks. I didn’t get as much done during the week as I hoped, however, so the weekend was spend finishing up assignments and taking tests. Now all that’s left is the final exam next weekend. Mid-January should see me start another course, but I’ll be free in December to figure things out again.

While this work project cleaning stores continues, I’ve gotten past the point of muscle pain and soreness. While my joints and wrists are still problematic, the work itself is no longer driving me crazy.

There’s still a lot for me to do, and at some point I’ll triage my tasks and kill off anything that doesn’t have much hope of completion in the short term.

Weekly review: November 7 - November 13, 2011

Maybe I should just set Mondays as the day to do the reviews, although I really think Sunday is the more appropriate day for it. I just need to get my head into a working state on Sundays. Once again I have things on the list here completed, but that I didn’t do during the week; as usual, it’s unchecked for this review but will be checked for the next one.

This week’s been fractally up and down. Every day of it had its peaks and troughs, and felt like a mental and emotional roller coaster ride. It didn’t help that Dad got a cast for a broken thumb, and I’ve got to keep him out of trouble more so than usual. Obviously, I didn’t get as much accomplished as I hoped.

Weekly review: October 24 - October 30, 2011

I actually got a lot done in terms of education this week, but it’s been very stressful and painful otherwise. Job-related anxiety is at an all-time high, and at points I was concerned that I would be a danger to myself and others. I’ve since recovered over the weekend, but I’m still quite wary about this travelling work project I’ve been stuck on. I didn’t ask for this.

I’ll be ridiculously busy to the end of November because of this project, which looks like will involve quite a bit of overtime when I was expecting to move to part-time hours by now. I’m going to try to barrel through with my weekly goals all the same, but it’ll be difficult.

Weekly Review: October 17 - October 23, 2011

Another week, another late review.

Time wasn’t on my side this week after all, and a number of events conspired to really drag me down by the end of the work week. Fortunately the weekend allowed for some recharging of the emotional batteries, but the coming week will be just as bad (or possibly worse).

As with the last couple of weeks, some things here have already been accomplished, just not checked off because they weren’t done by Sunday. C’est la vie.

Weekly Review: October 3 - October 9, 2011

Wow, two days late. Some of the things I missed on last week, I’ve already completed, and likewise for “next week” items. For the sake of physics, I’ll leave those unchecked until the next review.

Despite not getting much done outside of work, I had a good week. There were a couple rough spots, but I was able to maintain a positive attitude for the most part. Despite the heavy work schedule for the coming week, I think I can probably clear out some more of my task backlog and be more productive in life.

Weekly Review: September 26 - October 2, 2011

The number of things I’ve left undone continues to grow. It’s really getting to me! Hopefully, now that we’re going to start working at the new store, the switch to part-time hours will happen soon and I’ll once again have time to do things.

The coming week is packed with nine hour days, so I don’t see much hope for clearing out much of this. This is quite unfortunate, because a number of these tasks are quite time-bound and I am out of time.

Weekly Review: September 19 - September 25, 2011

This week’s report demonstrates the importance of sorting tasks and accomplishments by project, or at least some level of category. I have a few things to consider regarding the organization of these reviews. I’m also second-guessing the use of Tumblr for them, because its support for formatting is somewhat lacking, unless I hack straight HTML.

This has been another busy week of work, with not much time really given over to managing my life. While I was able to accomplish quite a bit on my three days off, I feel I probably could have done more.
