I have to say that I'm kind of excited about how well I'm doing with my monthly "To-Do" Lists. It seems that "publicly" making lists and then "publicly" announcing my success seems to be a good motivator for not ignoring (or forgetting) to do the things I said I want to do. 

So now that the I've changed the calendar from Auggie to Will and Declan (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] shanachie_quill for my awesome calendar full of my favorite hotties), I believe it is time to make April's list of shit to get done. 

1) Plan the Wilmington Avengers Adventure (aka going to Wilmington, NC to hang out with my friend Jason and going to see the Avengers). 

This is going to involve getting a couple of days off or my schedule changed, my schedule coordinated with Jason's, and buying tickets ahead of time. 

2) Get new sheets.

3) Catalog what comics I have in which series in a way that is mobile so that I don't pick up duplicates. 

4) Start Cataloging my books. 

I was going through and cleaning and tidying up my books and I found three titles that I had 2 copies of apiece. That means there were 3 books I totally wasted money on - yeah I was a little peeved. Especially since two of them I have yet to read and one of them I started and couldn't finish because it was so badly written. You can imagine my annoyance. Now, I don't have a lot of comics (yet) but I have a TON of books. Most of the books I read, if I don't absolutely love them beyond love, I take them to the used bookstore which means that the vast majority of the books I have, I haven't read which makes it a lot harder to remember that I have it. I want to catalog my books in much the same way and for much the same reason as I do my comics. However, this is a massive undertaking and with every thing else I've got going on, I don't wanna push to complete this in a month. I do, though, want to make sure I get a good start on this. 

5) Take the printers and the old cameras to Best Buy to be recycled. 

6) Write 15,000 words. 

7) Finish at least one story from my [livejournal.com profile] avengers_tables and if possible two as that will complete the table. 

8) Write a story for [livejournal.com profile] love_bingo 

9) Get and read my book club book.

I wanna work on the book thing to. Especially with having two houses (and all of my books at the other house going into storage). So if you have an idea...let me know?

I'm gonna work on it also. I just forgot to put it on the list. Not sure I'm gonna do it this month or next.

I bought an app I'm going to try out where you add the ISBN and it downloads much of the information. You can then mark each book as owned, wanted, etc. You can also keep track of you albums/cds and movies. You're supposed to be able to scan the barcodes somehow, but I've yet to figure that out.

The other cool thing is that it lets you link the app up with your dropbox account as like a back up. There's some other back up options as well, but they may be a little more techy than I'm able to use easily.

Oooo I NEED that for my movies. Cuz seriously I have toooo many movies. No I really don't. But I need something to keep track of them. But yes, lemme know if it works out.

Oooo sounds awesome! Yes, lemme know if it works and I'll get it too. Barcodes might not work for me since I don't always have them, but I can look up ISBNs.

Heh, remind me that I wanted to get "something" done this "weekend"? That'd be good.

*Giggles* Well, I did get through about 1/3 of my comics, so I guess that's something.

We're already on our way bebe, but the trip is gonna be epic!

Sometimes I am right. And when I am right? I'm REALLY right.
