I've been trying to work on fixing things that have been preventing me from getting as much done, as I would like to get done. First I figured out the stupid loop of guilt I had where I would feel guilty for not getting stuff done, and that would make me feel bad enough to not feel like starting on anything. It seems like not feeling bad wouldn't be as simple as making a choice to not feel bad, but it has almost felt that easy so far. I decided that the next thing I need to do is get much more organized. Since it is the center of my material universe I'm starting with my computer. I can't emphasize enough how much time I waste because my files, and email, and all kinds of stuff isn't organized, or I haven't bothered to set things up efficiently. Then I will try to organize my space, and finally the hardest of all my time.

If you want to see some of the somewhat boring details of this see the questions I posted about backing up my software. http://www.livejournal.com/community/debian/179904.html?nc=4

On a more, or probably less interesting note on Sunday I was trapped on a tour bus for around 4 hours with much of my extended family to celebrate my Great Uncle's 80ith birthday. I learned stuff like that one of my favorite restaurants is located where there used to be "shanties" behind a whorehouse, and that one of my second cousins spends significant amounts of time at work splicing footage of traffic accidents together for a highlights reel. We drove all over the place. For reasons I can't fathom we got out in front of some tavern in the middle of nowhere, and some guy tried to pick a fight with Audry's boyfriend. Now I understand my grandpa's stories about going to a one room schoolhouse. I had always thought he grew up in Aloha, when he had grown up way way way out there. There were lots of stories about how they passed an opportunity to buy the land a multibilliondollar intel complex is on for $200 an acer, or some other thing they regretted later. I didn't pay that much attention to what they were saying over the intercom. I picked up little bits here, and there like he saved someone from drowning, he stole watermelons, and sped off in his model T, he worked for $00.8/hour etc. I hadn't bonded with my cousins that much in too many years, and it was nice to feel like I was getting to know them better.

Maybe as I get more organized I will start doing more interesting things, and have something interesting to write about.

China moon. It is a Chinese buffet on TV highway where the road bends by Shute park. I wouldn't sat it is the best, I just pick it often because I can eat as many spring rolls as I want.
