[livejournal.com profile] fleshlycherry mentioned that she was going to let life suck until April, and since today is April 1st, she has pressed the reset button. I thought this was a good idea, and I am joining her.

My life has been a bit of a mess since last fall, with my medical mystery (AKA stomach problems of doom) and a diagnosis of clinical depression. I hit rock bottom in the beginning of March with a full blown panic attack, and things have slowly been getting better since then, but I'm still not on the ball when it comes to work or relationships.

So, today I hit the reset button. I'm going to be more organized, more motivated and happier. I'm going to start with getting Bizmark (the most adorable puppy ever) on a regular schedule. This means getting up at 6:00 am (something I've been trying to do since last summer), and getting him going to the bathroom every 2 hours when I'm home with him. It also means walking him more, which will in turn make me feel better.

Next, I'm going to finish the stupid grant thing that has been killing me since the end of February. I keep putting it off for no good reason, even though I know it's well written and there isn't much to fix. I'm going to reward myself with Season 5 of Bones, ice cream from Marble Slab, and the ability to fully concentrate on my Big Bangs.

Then, I'm going to plan out my experiments and be more consistant with getting into the lab on time. No more dawdling in my appartment until 10am. I will be in the lab by 8:30 every day, and I will be out by 4:30. And I will spend my lab time actually working (though there will be breaks where I snack and talk to [livejournal.com profile] fleshlycherry, because what else is science for.

Finally, I'm going to make more of an effort to hang with friends. I've been putting off having M come to visit since I last saw him in August, so I'll firm up plans. Then, I will make more of an effort to get out with the friends I have in London. It's easier, because we've started doing puppy play dates, but I want to get back to going out to trivia, or going to see movies. Finally, I'm going to start going to the dog park once Bizmark is old enough. I want to go the same time twice a week so that Bizmark and I can both make friends.

Reset button is now pushed! I invite you to do the same. It's like New Years resolutions, but with sunny weather and the advent of spring upon us ;)

That sounds like a great idea! :) If you can come in to the lab whenever you want and actually manage to be there at 8.30 I will be very impressed. I would never manage that ^^

Before I moved to London I used to go into the lab before 8am (and occassionally pulled 14 hour days) and loved it. I need to start doing it again.

Fuck yeah, RESET :)

To add to my reset list: Do errands in high heels because it makes me feel like The Sexiest.

(also trying to decide if it is too cold to go bare leg in my dress tonight)

Yeah, I saw that :( Oh well. I bought super sheer black hose to wear with dress :)

At VV I bought a maybe ugly/maybe super cute jacket. Just tried it on again. Yeah, maybe ugly :(

Still though, manicure is lovely and while I did managed to get non-water soluable wax all over the bathroom floor :( I'm now smooth in all the right places so yay for sexah me :)

Go you. These are all awesome plans. Good luck in sticking to them. I am starting to think through something similar after my big scare the other week. Although I think I will need thicker blood before I start on early mornings and bike riding.

Nice to see you on LJ :) Thanks for the well wishes. Not doing so well on certain aspects, but doing much better on others. I'm actually finding that walking is a good way to get in shape. I walk Bizmark a lot now (More than an hour each day). Send me a text or something when you get the chance. I'd love to organize another trip to visit.

Another visit would be awesome. The theatre is about to start up tomorrow with Candida going on stage. I am ticketing for it next week I hope so I can tell you what its like. Should be good- its Shaw doing a love triangle! NMy Fair Lady is on stage next week too, and I am very excited for the costumes, they are the same designer who did An Ideal Husband last yr, they look amazing from the sketches.

I have now posted my list of things I need to do. Time to start working my way through. How goes it with you?
