To Do List

I am an extremist. 

Not like the guy who walks across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope extremist...

but the kind of it's either all or nothing extremist.

Today, I made a to do list.

It may or may not have been the first to do list that I have made since waaayyy before midterm. As in the first to do list that I have made since classes started in August.

Those of you who know me well are saying, "WHAT???"

(And yes, I meant to scream at you... because if you truly know me well, you are using that tone of voice.)

And it may or may not be true that I have only opened my planner twice since September.

I blame it on the fact that I lost my original planner, and it was just too much of an effort to fill out the new one completely.

And also because I was reading The Best Yes by Lysa Terkeurst , and it really made me think about white space and leaving things open.

And also because I have been teaching 116 with Jenna, who has kept me on my game.

But today I realized I had lots of little things that needed to be done as the end of the semester approached, so I jotted down the to do list.

That's about as far as I got before it was time to go home.

Because we had taught on personality disorders today, and the students did a pretty good job of acting them out as assigned, and basically, just discussing manipulation had worn me out.

I told you... all or nothing type girl.

But at least I have a plan for tomorrow.

This may or may not be the most random post I've done in a long, long time... but I've been feeling kind of discombobulated today...

Hopefully the to do list will get me back on track. And it will be time to order a new, beautiful Erin Condren planner again...

except I'm afraid that I'll lose it again.

To buy a new one or not... that is the question. I'd better write that decision on my to do list =)


  1. I love this completely random post! I sat here going, "No way...that's me!" I do have an app on my phone that includes a calendar, to-do list and grocery list. If my crazy doesn't get into that app in the right place, it doesn't get done. No how! So yes, I'm there with you! I think we all need a post like this sometimes...or maybe its just me? Thanks for the smile friend!

  2. :) I think we all have days like this, Lauren! I stopped using a planner and started using the calendar feather on my phone--I just couldn't teach my planner to buzz when I needed to do something...
