I woke up at 6 am today. Last night i slept at past midnight. I had a class for an hour and then after that i went on mylotting. After a few hours i went for breakfast cleaned my room and cleaned my bathroom. Then i noticed that time has passed by so fast it was already in the afternoon and i wondered, where did the time go. What have i been doing during those hours that i was free? I didn't take a nap, didn't read a book but yeah i cleaned the room and my bathroom. But i just thought that i wasted precious time for no reason. How's your Monday?

It's only midday here on my Monday so there's still plenty of time, but I haven't been particularly fruitful today I'm on holiday from university at the minute, so there's no uni work or lectures to do today, and I haven't had any luck finding a job, so there's no work either Instead, today I plan to: a) Earn some money in mylot (fingers crossed). I'm aiming to make at least 25 responses today, but we'll see how it goes. b) Tidy my room a bit - trust me when I say it's far too messy to tidy it all today. My goal for today is to deal with all the clothes - the dirty ones, the clean ones, the ones that need putting away etc. c) Look up postgraduate courses. I have the option of doing an undergraduate masters with my university, which is less prestigious but significantly cheaper than a true masters degree. I haven't really looked to see what other options are out there though, and maybe I'll get some inspiration for what I want to do with my degree based on other available courses. So far today though, all I've got done is 2 responses on mylot, feeding the dogs, and emptying the dishwasher! Looks like I need a very productive afternoon!

Just reading your "to do" list is already making me tired! I have a bunch of things to do today as well, but fortunately for me it is still early morning here, so I have plenty of time ... that does not mean that I will actually get all that I need to do accomplished, especially if I don't get off of here quickly this morning, but at least I still have the illusion of being able to accomplish a great deal today at this point.

@drasnian, you're gonna have your hands full today! Good luck and hope you'll be able to do it all.

Hey purplealabaster, what do you have to get done today? If it makes you feel any better, my to-do list isn't going fabulously. a) I've made 13 responses today, which sounds really good except when you think it's now 3pm...so I've made 13 responses in 3 hours. Definitely not so good. I just get distracted reading discussions, looking for things I'm really passionate about to reply to etc etc. b) I haven't even started tidying my room, just thinking about how messy it is makes me too depressed to start c) I looked up postgrad courses...for about an hour....and got virtually nowhere. I found a course in Primate Conservation, which looks decidedly cool, but it's not at a great uni, so I still don't know whether I'd be better staying with my undergraduate masters (less prestigious) at a "better" university (according to the rankings etc). Hmm...not going so well, but it's only 3pm right? Still lots of time...I hope. Thanks for the luck toniganzon, definitely think I'm going to need it!

I always get up at about 5:30 AM to get a few simple tasks done around the Internet, checking out various websites, just getting a lot of things done. I tend to be rather productive a lot of the time, even though there are some times where I wish I was more productive. In the end, I think that I am only human and I can only do so much at the time, even if I always think that I should be able to do more. Never am a nap taker, no way whatsoever. I tend to be more productive when I work straight though. Any attempts to rest until the job is done, that just cuts my momentum down towards the end result. When I start to work on the job, I try and get the job done to the best of my abilities. Still I have had some rather productive days and I am much better for that for sure. Hopefully I continue to do so.

I need to nap even just for a few minutes each day because if i don't, i tend to get sleeping during my 11pm classes. That won't be fair to my student.

I woke up at 4am getting myself ready for work. I worked for three hours in the morning for my part time job. After working for three hours, I slept til noon. I ate my lunch and took a shower again, got myself ready to work for my full time job. I work at 3pm till 11pm so I sleep late on weekdays. Tired. Exhausted. I wanted to read and do something productive but my energy is not enough. I feel like sleeping at 9am-12noon is a waste of time but i need to have some rest for my full time job.

Yeah, time flies by so fast. My whole Monday is so,so. I started out travelling through bus for work. Of course, work is a typical busy day with some sneaking in on myLot during those working hours. After that, being tired as I am, I went to eat merienda and started lying into bed. And seeesh! I fell asleep at that totally making up for my lack of sleep the previous days. Oh well, at least I get to rest on a Monday. Not so productive but still a good day was it.

Good for you. As long as you think it was ok then i think yours was better than mine. I think i'm just not used to having done so many things before the day ends.

Like as every Monday. I woke at six too, took a shower, then ate breakfast and I went to work. I've done all my tasks, although they were not many and I was ready few minutes ago. Now, by writing this comment, it's three o'clock. Still a few more minutes and I'll go back home. I think Monday was not bad. :)

Hi Toni! Sometimes house hold chores eat up lots of your time that you do not realise that how soon the time elapsed. My Monday has been busy. Getting up very early in the morning, finishing errands and then went to my office and returned late in the evening.

It is the village area. Here everyone is so much familiar with each other. I can go to anywhere, i can just ask them once and eat as much as possible. So much freedom we have here. Our villagers doesn't want money, just they want a good relation.

My Monday is just fine. I slept the whole day to get myself ready for my workshift. I'm at work right now myLotting. There are a few calls but it's still a bit boring here that's why I'm hanging out here on myLot.

For a graveyard shift, time is totally so different. Well can't imagine sleeping during the day and working at night.

I also couldn't imagine myself doing it either but here I am. It was pretty hard at first, it only takes some getting-used-to.

Hi toni! Time flies by so fast when you're busy. I think my Monday was a little fruitful. ^^ I went to school this morning to have myself registered to our college's website. And after that, I went back to work before lunch time. And after lunch time, I wasted two hours before I realized I had two reports to submit by 5PM. So I spend two hours writing that reports and thank God I was able to finish them and submit them before the deadline. Now I'm at home, myLotting. I hope I can earn more than 50 cents today. lol
@toniganzon (53187)

NOw you've got a goal for yourself which won't be hard at all. Surely you can earn .50 or more. Just stay awake and let your fingers do the talking.

My fingers can do the talking but I can't stay awake later than 10. I automatically get sleepy by that time. I'm lucky I was able to upload some pictures this morning.

Well, that was indeed a full day, for me, it was a relatively free day because i have a three-day break, so i could sleep a litter longer, and after i got out of bed(about 8am), i cleaned my room, then i prepared the lunch, actually, i am not good at cooking, and i slept in the noon, a few hours later, i was online when my friend called me and let me go out to play, so i stayed with my friends till around 10 pm, taken a bath and went to bed, then a relaxed day was over...

hi tonignzon not really fruitful as I wo uld have liked as because I slept less than two hours last night I went back to bed after the 7 am breakfast and slept til 11 am then went down to lunch. I have been mylotting steadily since noon and am still so behind on both commenting on my own discussions and responding on all my many friends discussions.but surely if you cleaned the room and bathroom you were fruitful. My mondays a lot the same here in this tiresome retirement center. a word of warning do not ever go to a retirement center to stay in older years,they are the pits. stay in your own home or apt instead if you possibly can.these places are boring, boring boring. If it were not for mylot and the internet and my computer I think I would go stark raving mad. lo

I work at home and stays at home most of the days. Though i know that at least i did something but still it's not my typical Monday chores. I have missed reading a book that i needed for discussion in class and i missed taking a nap which i needed to stay awake till midnight! And i agree, if it were not for mylot, i would have gone crazy being alone in the house all day.

As I'm reading this, I'm just beginning my day. I do plan a productive day, which I've somewhat mapped out in schedule form. I'm hoping to stick to it and not vary too much. However, you never know what might pop up! I'm going to do mostly myLotting today but have also planned a couple of articles. It sounds like you did get quite a bit accomplished really.

I know i did but i didn't get to do the things that i would on a MOnday. So i guess that's why i'm saying i haven't been that productive. Have a nice day!

A day gone waste is a day that you wasted one day in your life. Making a day fruitful is the way of living fruitfully, greater you live, greater you make fruitful your life. Making life fruitful does not mean only studying, getting job and earning sums of money but helping people in the needy and thinking of a good idea for a better society.

I haven't really been fruitful today, since it is still fairly early morning here, although I have already done a few things online and had a cup of coffee. Now I am getting ready to eat breakfast, which will include fruit in my cereal ... does that count as "being fruitful"?

Hi toni! Mine was a little fruitful today. I had 9 patients and but the highlight of the day was 2 patients that is for OR procedure tomorrow. Both of them is to undergo ORIF plating due to fracture of the femur the other one was tibia. Because they are above 40 years old, i facilitated their diagnostics to get a clearance from the Internist to know if they are okey for surgery. I was kinda tiring day, but the day ended so fast, and I have done a lot of things for the two of them.

Don't think being in mylot is a waste of my time at all. You're still earning here so it's still being productive.
