This week has been (well, it has been short seeing as it’s only Tuesday) full of frantic last minute- writing for my panel work. This Thursday I have to turn everything in, and then I just have to wait a week to have my actual panel. So this is why you’re getting a Tuesday Lieblings- I’m behind.
1) Third and Delaware
Third and Delaware is a tumblr blog dedicated to sharing delightful fashion selections from the popular tv sitcom “Roseanne” with the world. It is truly one of the better (and lets admit it, one of the only good ones at all) theme-tumblrs I’ve seen. The concept is funny, and the snappy writing makes it worth reading all the way through. Check it out- http://thirdanddelaware.tumblr.com/
2) This Sunken Kitchen House:
So I realize this post is making fun of this apartment (and hey, who doesn’t enjoy a good curling reference, am I right?) But I really really like this place! I mean, it’s very Le Corbusier-esque in its efficient yet somewhat stylish compactness. And you get a little fort for a bed!
Maybe I’m getting a little too used to spending all of my time in a single, small room…….. Anyway, the blog this is from is pretty amusing- Lovely Listings – I like to look at it and cheer myself up about my current living situation. It could always be worse.
3) The Tomato Method of Efficiency!
So my friend Tammi introduced me to this thing called the Pomodoro method- basically you time yourself- and get work done! You work for 25 minutes, then take a 5 minute break and start working again. I have no idea why, but this really, really works for me. I figure out how many tomatoes I think I need to do, then do them. (two tomatoes would be an hours worth of work, etc). To make it easy, you can go to mytomatoes.com – the website is free to register for, and then it actually keeps track of all the stuff you accomplish, so eventually you amass quite the productivity journal. It makes me feel a lot better to look back at a week and concretely see what I’ve accomplished. For example (and this was an off day, thus the cheating) here is one of my days, as logged at the website:
thursday 18. feb 4 finished tomatoes
- 15:47 – 16:13 did some more proposal work, got sick of that, went back to virgule paper, got sick of that, cheated and went on cocoperez.com
