If you look at my twitter feed lately, you may have noticed that I’ve developed a bit of obsession.
(my Pinterest board will tell a similar story, but we’ve already discussed how many of you don’t like Pinterest…)
I’m not all that good at remembering to do things; I’m not all that good at maintaining habits once I start them. That whole, “do a thing for xx days and then you’ll keep doing it? Doesn’t happen for me; I stop on the xx+1 day and just… stay stopped.
It’s a little too soon to tell for sure, and there’s always, of course, the question of how much I’m going to get wrapped up in the pretty bits – banners! Color coding! Icons!
//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsBut at the moment, it seems to be helping me hold to things I want to remember to do everyday, so I’ll count it as at least a short-term win. Dishes every night! Walkies every night! Edally is almost back on schedule!
Bonus? I made a “weight loss” page in my bullet journal (It’s up there in the September Set-up, with the bubbles) … and then I started doing Weight Watchers again. Maybe this’ll be the thing that actually makes me stick to it this time!
Current mood: optimistic, with pretty banners. 🙂

Okay, so this is what came to me in the shower this morning:
A technomancer Addergoole grad in school for/just graduated from college for rocket science is faced with the apoc.
Using her college roommate’s concept drawings for an FTL ship and substituting magic where human tech isn’t there yet, and pulling in the skills of a diverse team of misfits, she puts together an escape ship to bring a smallish population (1000 or so) away from the mess that is Earth.
