Lately I've been procrastinating more than I should be, so I felt I should make a to-do list for ACU. This way everyone can see what I'm planning on doing and what I'm getting done, as well as see if their suggestions are being considered. Not everything on this list will get done anytime soon, since some of it is unrealistic for a short-term goal. I figure this will help me stay more focused on what I need to do, though.

My problem is that I just don't have the time and energy to do all of this. At times I have the energy, but not the time. At other times I have the time, but not the energy. My biggest problem is my job and trying to do too many things at once on ACU. I work a 50 hour work week, and while it's not a hard work week since I'm self-employed at my own store, it does make it hard to focus on any one thing. It also cuts into my time greatly. I think my problem with ACU is that I keep focusing on random things that pop up instead of prioritizing what needs to get done, though. This causes me a lot of confusion and wasted effort. In the end, it comes down to all work and no play, which makes Niji want to go away!

Hopefully this list will help me stay more organized and prioritized. If it does, it'll make my job a lot easier. If not, oh well!

Anyway, on to the list!
