living the dream (boring activity logs) Blog by babyjesus
Over 10,739,349 people are on fubar. What are you waiting for?
I recently read a book (thanks Bill) that gave me the idea of simply noting everything I do during the day for 7 days, and I started yesterday Monday May 4th, 2010. Since I was using the time to try and log most of the stuff I was doing, I figured I may as well post it up here so you guys can get an idea what it's like to be me (for good or bad). It'll be pretty boring, so unless you like watching paint dry you might want to find something else to do. I'll post the previous day every morning for the next 6 days.
