1. Index cards for today: Boredom prevention device, Contingency plans, Hipster PDA, Taxi
IndexCards written today:
|Boredom prevention device||My boredom prevention device is a pack of index cards. Whenever I find myself with unexpected free time, I scribble down a thought or two. This leaves me with no excuse for not writing. I like it more than a notebook because I can easily rearrange topics. Besides, the size of an index card encourages me to write, while a notebook intimidates me with all that blank space. Small notebooks are hard to write on, but index cards can be separated from the pack for easy scribbling. I like them a lot.|
|Contingency plans||If I don't go to UToronto this year, I can: continue my MA Education in Ateneo, join infoweapons for two years, learn theater and assorted things, and/or explore other scholarships.|
|Hipster PDA||That's a fancy name for what I'm using now. 2" fold-back clips are a bit too big. The handles extend past the card if I anchor it at the bottom, so I anchor it near the right side instead. Still have to find a way to attach a pen to this thing. Found 3"x5" organizer refills, and the month template looks like it will be very handy. The day template could help me with time logging. I've added 20 2"x3" sticky notes to the card before my reflections and a bunch of blank cards to the end, just in case. Brilliant idea: I should add song lyrics to my pad...|
|Taxi||I always feel nervous when taxis take "shortcuts" through unfamiliar streets. Long routes make me wonder how far off we go. Small, crowded streets make me feel especially anxious. I guess it's because I don't trust cab drivers not to try to take advantage of me.|

On Technorati: reflections
Not me, guy. I read the Bash man page each day like a Jehovah's Witness reads the Bible. No wait, the Bash man page IS the bible. Excuse me... (More on confusing aliases, taken from comp.os.linux.misc)
