I AM Motivated!  
Back from MW. Feeling motivated to change my life. To set timeline altering goals.

To clean out my closet. To organize that pile o' fic and post it on Delicious. To conquer and relabel the universe that is my iTunes mass of podfics. To say "no more" to the massive growing piles on my desk that are towers between me and fic reading. Yes, I shall post on my LJ. Yes, I shall get up early and do the zombie shuffle and (gasp) exercise. Yes, I shall actually write down the mass of fic in my head. Yes, my voice will be heard and I will freakin' learn to podcast. Yes, I shall actually HAVE A LIFE. One that does not involve only the words "university" and "work".

Quail before my awesome motivationalness and be afraid.

But first, I think I need stickers. Stickers to help me enact my plan.

Like these!

Yay for motivation!
Yay for posting on LJ more!
Yay for more creativity!

I heard rumors that there were CA Crew bids at MWC this year! True? Anyplace online to see the vids????

My motivational stickers tend to look more like this:

Stickers of awesome power are clearly necessary when becoming motivated. I acknowledge your stickers of zippy cheerfulness which will no doubt add to your motivationalness!

PS Yep, we actually made a small CA Crew contribution this year. Behold everyone, including us, surprised. They're not posted online, but I can make a hard copy for you and send them later this weekend.

Please, mentally send your motivation to me (and possibly some stickers)!

I woke this morning and faltered briefly in my motivational momentum. Monday tried to retcon me back to my ambivalent defeated state, but I am rising above it.

Stickers have shielded my mojo! (Yes, I actually bought them and they are totally cute and I feel the ZPM of their energy combating the Monday blahs.) I highly recommend them and will pick you up a pack next time I drive by Container Store if you like.

Additionally, I ordered me some more awesome pens of power that write wee perfect little lines of dark inky intent. Because you know you need smeer proof intent in order to hash out the details of the life altering ambitions, right?

So my battlefield is set. Next I lay the groundwork for attack!

This has set the stage, not only will I be able to journal with sticker tabs in my David Allen-esque core dump of everything I need to do to change my life and declutter, but I also plan to be able to delicately check off little boxes giving myself happy positive reinforcement as I use my moleskin journal for all wee thoughts and lists rather than leaving about a trail of mournful post-it notes yearning to be read and acted upon.

PS How do you make links into color links? All I know how to do is bold.

I started off all motivated and "whee" when I got back from Lansing, went onto LJ, replying to friends' pages, filled prompts, plot Big Bang, woke up early.

Then it hit a hundred here yesterday.

Get-up-and-Go pre-empted due to weather. It got-up-and-left.
