Holy productivity Batman!

August 26, 2005

Things I did before 9am this morning:

1.) Woke
This is an accomplishment considering I stayed out last night, but more on that later.
2.) Went for a run
See reason above.
3.) Baked a coffee cake
Meg is moving away, far away (to Prague people!), and nothing says “I’ll miss you” like coffee cake. Besides, I didn’t want to mess up my streak of 8 straight days of ingesting some form of cake (today makes 9). Commenter, Travis, is right…I may need to change the tag line of this blog to reflect baked goods.
4.) Showered
Not necessarily an accomplishment, but it DID happen before 9am.
5.) Put together my large sack of food for the day (ie. lunch)
Again, something that I do most mornings, but significant because of all these other things I have done…in one day and BEFORE 9am!
6.) Drove to work
Normally I am a Metro girl and am allowed to zone and generally not pay attention to my surroundings. Today was special because I had a parking pass, meaning I get to work faster, BUT I have to pay attention to things like stop lights, really fast cars, cyclists and pedestrians. It was hard, ok?

Seriously, this is amazing to me! I feel I am a fairly lazy sort and have fallen into a semi-apathetic attitude as of late. So I am feeling all productive and shit (and evidently, completely grammar-free). Plus there is like an entire day left. And a baseball game tonight! I am on fire. Woo!

Oh and had dinner in Old Town with the greatest crew evah last night. So much fun, hilarity, pretty people, laughter, photos, political-incorrectness, bad accents, eyeball reprimands, homemade brew, craziness, boobaliciousness, V.C. and cheer. Bekkah and Busted, you two are awesome…so glad you picked VA as your road trip destination! These are funny girls people!

Others in attendance: Buggie, Claudette, Harms, MG and me! I love us!

    Wow, I woke up (very reluctantly after Lexi decided to play tic tac toe on my nose w/her claw) at 8:43 and made it into office by 9:40. You’re my hero today. Next week (famous last words) I’ll be starting to wake up earlier w/Lu (at 6:30ish ouch) and hopefully be inspired to do as you do, minus the coffee cake. 😛

    HVC’s are the best.

    I was at work at 7:45. I don’t know why.

  5. August 26, 2005 1:41 pm

    Yay, yummy cake! I can’t beleive it was still so hot when I got here…

    Yay Rachel! Hiya darling, I am glad my productivity inspired you to de-lurk!

    Haha, HVCs! I forgot about the “HUGE”! Damn. Wow, I am clussy’s hero and I was also declared employee of the day. Can someone get me a cape?

  6. August 26, 2005 2:24 pm

    Yeah, I think I will get Yvonne a card to really express my awe of her discipline, motivation and just ‘super hero like’ instincts.

    what’s up w/the word verifications getting longer??? antboxtpo Po botox ant!

    Woo Hoo! I’m so glad that everyone likes my term, HVC. What can I say….they love me….they really really love me. *sniff*

    I am up every day at 06:30 (and usually several times a night as well – insomnia and all.) I just can’t bring myself to leave the house till like 08:00. And it gets worse as the week progresses. I don’t think I made it into the office till 10:00 or 10:30 today.

    But I can vouch for Buggie being a total early bird today. 07:45? WTF is with that? NO ONE LIKES THEIR JOB THAT MUCH!

    We’re so glad we picked VA as our final destination too! After Thursday night, we pretty much concluded that it was an awesome vacation…and it hadn’t really started yet?!!?

    Such an awesome time!! Waddaya’ think, next HH…Nor’leans for Mardi Gras?!?! w00t!

  9. August 29, 2005 10:26 am

    I must cause I was here at 0700 on Friday morning only to have my candidate not show up!!! I was pissed, called and left him a message and I am sure I didn’t sound to happy in it, since I had to get up a hour earlier than normal.

    I NEED coffee cake! Mushie, you know I am the biggest fan of it!

  10. August 29, 2005 5:27 pm

    Oh damn, plan the Blogger’Gras in French Quarters next time. I’ll show. I just want to walk around in public w/an open alcohol container and feel ‘slick’. Ohhh, and the shows! i wanna see the n’rleans shows too that I’ve heard so much about!

  11. August 29, 2005 5:51 pm

    The nasty cootchie shows? THOSE shows?

  12. August 29, 2005 6:32 pm

    [gasp] shame on you! What do you think it is, Thursday night HH at the Chart House or something?

    But, yes, the shows. You know, the um, ‘adult entertainment’ shows! I’m so deprived, I know but I’m also “just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to…”. Oh wait, that was Notting Hill line, damn, I’m trying to sound ‘decent’ about being curious. Give a sista a break here.

  13. August 29, 2005 6:53 pm

    Ooop – too crass to say cootchie? What about cooter?

    Haha, cooter makes me laugh.

    I am sure you have heard the song “Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club but have you ever given much thought to its meaning? While on Earth, you are living in a world of reincarnation which is governed by the law of karma. Karma begins to propel you as Soul on a personal journey through the universe. Karma ends when you have reached enlightenment and fully realise that this physical reality and the Universe itself is just an illusion. When you reach a state of knowingness that there is but One all pervading essence and that essence or consciousness is You!
    So what is Karma and how does it work? While in the illusion you have a soul. This soul lives past, present, and future lives. To grow in love, joy, and awareness, you reincarnate into a series of physical bodies to experience different existences. This road leads to the experiences of being both sexes, all races, religions, and ethnic types throughout many lifetimes.
    Karma in its simplicist terms can be described by the biblical statement “as you sow, so also shall you reap”. Karma is the principle of cause and effect, action and reaction, total cosmic justice and personal responsibility. It brings ‘good’ experiences as well as ‘bad’ – a debt must be repaid and a blessing rewarded.

    A more indepth esoteric look at karma gives us the following distinctions: Sanchita Karma: the accumulated result of all your actions from all your past lifetimes. This is your total cosmic debt. Every moment of every day either you are adding to it or you are reducing this cosmic debt. Prarabdha Karma: the portion of your “sanchita” karma being worked on in the present life. If you work down your agreed upon debt in this lifetime, then more past debts surface to be worked on. Agami Karma: the portion of actions in the present life that add to your “sanchita” karma. If you fail to work off your debt, then more debts are added to “sanchita” karma and are sent to future lives. Kriyamana Karma: daily, instant karma created in this life that is worked off immediately. These are debts that are created and worked off – ie. you do wrong, you get caught and you spend time in jail.
    As a soul, you experience a constant cycle of births and deaths with a series of bodies for the purpose of experiencing this illusionary world gaining spiritual insights into your own true nature until the totality of all experiences show you Who you really are – the I AM! Until you have learned, you will find that pretending that the rules of karma do not exist or trying to escape the consequences of your actions is futile.
    Although it may often “feel” like punishment, the purpose of karma is to teach not to punish. Often the way we learn is to endure the same type of suffering that we have inflicted on others and also rexperience circumstances until we learn to change our thinking and attitudes.

    We are all here to learn lessons as spiritual beings in human form. These lessons are designed to help us grow into greater levels of love, joy, and awareness. They teach us our true nature of love. Where we do not choose love, show forgiveness, teach tolerance, or display compassion, karma intervenes to put us back on the path of these lessons. Quite simply, the only way to achieve a state of karmic balance is to be love.
    Before you incarnated into your present personality, you agreed to put yourself in the path of all that is you need to learn. Once you got here, you agreed to forget this. Karma is impersonal and has the same effect for everyone. It is completely fair in its workings and it is predictable – “do onto others as you would have them do unto you” is a way to ensure peace and tranquillity in your own life as well as the lives of those you come into contact with. The law of karma is predictable – “as you sow, so shall you reap” what is done to you is the net result of what you have done to others!
    Karma gives you the opportunity at every moment to become a better person than you are and to open up to the realization that you are the master of your own fate.

    The goal of karma is to give you all the experiences that you need to evolve into greater levels of love, joy, awareness, and responsibility. Karma teaches that you are totally responsible for the circumstances of your life. They keep you on the straight and narrow until you have mastered your vehicle and can ride freely on your own. Once you understand that you are the master of your own circumstances and that everything you experience is a direct result of your past actions due to your thinking and emotional responses you can overcome its seeming negative effects by creating only ‘good’ karma.
    Karma forces us to look beyond ourselves (oneness) so that we can see ourselves as we truly are Whole, Complete, at One with everything. Once we truly understand ourselves, we can see our divinity and our unity with all life.
    Karma drives us to service. Love means service. Once you accept total responsibility for your life, you see yourself as a soul in service to God. Once you do, you become a fully realized being, allowing God to experience the illusion through you.
    Belief in karma and an understanding of its workings will lead you to a life of bliss. Only your own deeds can hinder you. Until the time comes when we release ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles of limitation and fully understand who and what we are we will live under the mantle of karma. So until that day why not create some wonderful experiences for ourselves by “doing onto others, as we would have them do unto us”. personal development
