Another look at the TO DO list

Oh joy. Just so I don’t forget what I’m supposed to be doing every minute of every day. ::sigh:: I seem to have this ongoing To Do list of things I should be doing at any given moment. In fact, the list gets longer and longer, no matter how much I knock off of it (not like I’m knocking much off, but that’s beside the point).

DONE (since last time)
—figure out which poems to show professor
—figure out cosplay for Anime Expo
—finish review of Return of the Joker: here!

Notes: Figuring out which poems to show my professor is, at this point, kind of moot because I’ll be starting a creative writing class with him on Monday in which he’ll see all forms of my writing, poetry and non. I’ve given up (sadly) on having a decent cosplay for Anime Expo, so I’m not going to do anything since I think that having a half-assed cosplay is often worse than having none at all. I’ll talk more about Anime Expo in future post. I actually really did do one of the things on the DONE list: I wrote my review of Return of the Joker finally!

(still) NOT DONE
—clean/declutter desk top
—finish (and finish reviewing) CANAAN (dammit!)
—watch/review Pocahontas, Precious, and The Sky Crawlers
—figure out what to do with the music I don’t listen to (delete? save for later? eh?)
—watch/review Cowboy Bebop, Princess Tutu, Trapeze, and Mnemosyne
—write review of Captive Queen
—wash/dry/fold laundry

Notes: Cleaning and decluttering my desktop requires me to be up in my room, awake, and willing to move stuff around. Ugh. Don’t wanna. As for CANAAN, I actually have a Plan. The Plan is that I bust through the rest of it this week and kick out those reviews and BE DONE with it before I have any serious homework in my creative writing class. The three movies are going to have to wait until I’m bored enough and don’t have anything else that I’ve already begun that needs finishing. Ditching the music I don’t listen to can probably be done in three or four hours (or less, if I don’t actually listen to the songs before I delete them so as to avoid deleting something I may actually want). I’ll have to schedule some time this weekend or next weekend to do that so I can free up some space on my hard drive.

The anime will also have to wait, though I’ve already decided not to blog it episodically like I am with CANAAN because I’ll be stuck on Cowboy Bebop (or whatever) forever if I do that. I haven’t watched any decent anime in so long because I feel like I’m not doing CANAAN justice by not doing what I said I was going to do, which is blog each episode. Ugh; not doing that again if I can help it. And yes, I added Mnemosyne because I read a good review of it and it looks interesting. We shall see. I also finished reading Captive Queen for the Feminist Review and now have to write 300-500 words. Shouldn’t be too hard, as long as I sit down and do it. As for washing/drying/folding the laundry, well… that’s something that just keeps coming up no matter what else I do. I guess I could just not wear clothes to avoid having to wash dirty clothes, but I don’t think even my family would be okay with that.

PRIORITY: (1) write review of Captive Queen, (2) finish (and finish reviewing) CANAAN, (3) figure out what to do with the music I don’t listen to, and (4) wash/dry/fold laundry.
