ANYWAY. Back to this super-cool calendar of mine. It's a page-a-day calendar, but it's a notepad. And it has brain puzzles, quotes, a list of famous people whose birthday it is, and a LOT of space to write my daily to-do list. (Or at least, one of them. There are usually at least three. I have lists and sub-lists and categories of lists ... you know me, so you surely expected this, right?)
Matter of fact, here's a photo from today's page. It's messy because we don't have much to do today, and I wrote the Michael's thing in Sharpie across the page so I couldn't possibly forget to get to Michael's today.
Every night when I tear off the page to get ready for the next day, if there's a quote I really like, I clip it out and set it on my desk. (The calendar is in the kitchen. Ironically, it's on the counter, underneath a hanging monthly calendar. See? Multiple to-do lists, multiple calendars. Different purposes.)
Yikes: I'm a little all-over-the-place on this post, sorry.
So, I've accumulated a handful of these quotes now, and I decided I'm going to start posting them here. Nothing fancy; nothing preachy. Just stuff I liked for whatever reason.
Here's the first one, which I think is particularly apropos both in terms of my life in general right now, and the fact that I just finished the Hunger Games trilogy so this kind of "survivalist" theme's been on my mind:
We will either find a way, or make one.
