[MJ] schedule

Yes, I know; the only con icon I have is WriterCon.

Last night, the muskratjamboree panel schedule got posted. This list of what I'm going to is mostly for my own reference, but there are some slots where I'm undecided as to which panel to attend, so feel free to chime in trying to sway me (or just chime in to squee about panels we're both likely to attend, or whatever).

I added in links to the panel descriptions from the Panel Suggestions post. Mods are in brackets following the panel title.

office bitch

I r totes a rockstar!

I was really busy this morning, but in useful competent ways.  I'd been feeling a little bit like I didn't even particularly like my job nor was particularly suited to it, so it was nice to be back into feeling like, This is who I am, what I do (*sings*)

Prof.D. emailed me two lists of articles to find and print out for him by the end of the day, and I was doing so much other stuff that I actually wasn't feeling entirely certain that I would get it done by then (especially when some of the first few articles I didn't find in the first major database I searched), but I actually finished by lunchtime.

I feel like I keep remembering about, or being reminded of, things that I've let slip through the cracks, but thus far everything's worked out fine, so hopefully I can continue to be proactive and all and fight to keep myself out of another avoidant phase.

Rest & Bread Taize service wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it'll be okay.

"Making the Faith Our Own in this Generation" looks to be really good.  There were parts at the beginning where I felt like my having committed myself to going to this was going to turn out to have been a bad idea, but I think it's gonna be good.  We ran until about 9:00 and then I stayed to talk, so it was closer to 9:30 when I got out.

Ugh, writeups from today (including Dollhouse 1.03) plus I have to clean up the blog post for tomorrow.  I suspect I may just stay after work late doing personal stuff since I don't have any obligations until CAUMC small group.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Five good things about today:
1. ~8hrs of sleep!
2. I went outside to pick something up from the building next door a little after 9am, and I passed Ranjan and Kara who were all bundled up, and one of them said I was "brave" to be out without a coat, and I said, "I don't feel brave -- just comfortable," and it was true.  I thought it was really quite lovely out.  But people all morning were commenting on how cold it was outside.  Yeah, I really do process cold differently than most people.
3. I have exciting surprise bonus plans for Friday night (even though unfortunately that means I'm missing CAUMC game night).
4. Leftovers from seminars, etc. (lots of chocolate chip cookies, but I was actually particularly pleased by the half of a mozzarella sandwich, since I wasn't optimistic about getting a hearty supper at FCS)
5. My mommy called to check in on me :)

Three things I did well today:
1. I got up with my alarm, did morning routine, and went to the Collapse )
2. I tracked down full-text PDFs of all the articles Prof.D. wanted.
3. I gave feedback on the Rest and Bread Taize service and made some useful contributions to discussion at "Making the Faith Our Own."

Two things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
["anything that you're looking forward to, that means you're facing tomorrow with joy, not trepidation," as Ari says]
1. CAUMC small group
2. Um... being done with a whole bunch of the things I'd like to get done tomorrow.
