days off

Finished my lit review which ended up a whopping 38 pages of blood, sweat and tired eyes. So I'm now officially on "vacation" til August 25th when classes start again, except that I have to tutor 1-2 kids per day but that's no biggee. Being the type A personality that I am, I have a list of things to do on my time off: help with G's wedding stuff, hem all unhemmed pants, sew a top I've been meaning to work on, file away all last semester's notes into binders, start doing some editing of the hours of video I've taken of various events like James' going away, and re-organizing our storage closet so I can get the golf clubs tucked away instead of hanging out in the living room. I don't think I can live a week without working from a to-do list. It's sad how scripted my day-to-day life is but it keeps me sane. As much as I'd sometimes like to be, I'm just not a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda person.

I'm a work from a to do list person with everything scheduled down to the last second...
Bao, I have no idea how he gets stuff done but he just does whatever, whenever...
we drive each other nuts when we share duties... it's just better for us to split our responsibilities up and worry about our own jobs...
i still don't get how he can sit and relax, knowing there's work to be done... i'd like to know his secret, i would probably live a lot longer.
