Accountability during quarantine

Hey y’all! Life has been absolutely crazy lately and I’ve really struggled with staying on track… I figured accountability would help not just me but a lot of people here! My idea is to post my goals/schedule, check in regularly ( hourly, daily, whatever ), and give updates. Anyone else who’s interested can do the same and we can all keep each other accountable :grin:

Some background: it’s Wednesday morning here, I’m doing school online, and I have piano lessons but don’t know if they’re online or not.

My goals at the start of the week: work out, practice piano, and go outside ( all daily ) Now I’m thinking that’s unreasonable :sweat_smile:

New goals: find my English book by Friday (when the reading is due), still go outside daily, practice piano today and tomorrow, and set up a work station/schedule for homework by lunchtime ( roughly 4 hours from now )

I’m also considering a thread where we can take a break and chat considering the whole can’t-see-anyone thing. Hope everyone’s having a wonderful day!

EDIT: other people said they were interested so here’s that

Update

It’s been 3 hours and I’ve gone outside, done an outline for my history paper, and finished 2 ( out of 3 ) paragraphs. My goal is to finish the paper and organize a working space right before lunch. After that, I’ll practice piano if possible ( since there’s other people working in the house )

I’m still working on the last paragraph, if I don’t finish in half an hour, I’m moving on. I’ve also decided to organize my work station later bc everything’s being moved around :yum:

Turns out my last paragraph may or may not go against the assignment requirements :grimacing: I’ve decided to ask my teacher about it later and move on to piano

Update: I found my book and finished the reading/questions. Something came up so I couldn’t practice piano in-depth, but I’m going to try and practice before lessons tomorrow morning. I also walked my dog for a pretty long time, it was hot!!
Thanks for the encouragement everyone and I’ll ( hopefully ) see y’all tomorrow :grin:

I wanted to join this along time ago and I started replying, but then I just forgot and never got to it. So anyways I think this is a great idea although I don’t know how well it will work for me. So yeah I’m just going to like try out telling y’all what I need to do as my other friends wouldn’t really get it. It should help me just knowing that other people out ther it should help me just knowing that what I expect of myself is in words and possibly seen by other people. And I’ll try to support you guys if you start using this again too!

Tonight I need to do a little bit of geometry vocabulary stuff which shouldn’t take very long, I just have to start it. I also have to do a tiny bit of history which is just a sentence long. Again about the starting it thing. And lastly I have a whole science assignment to complete which will take an hour tops. (Well, I guess, you never really know how long with ADHD)

I’m going to begin with math.

I really wanted this to do something, but I think it’s too hard for me to remember to say stuff on it.

I forgot about this thread :joy: whoops!

What’s everyone’s goals right now? How has everything been?

My plan for today is:

  • translate 2 passages for Latin
  • do the reading and quiz for English
  • review my math homework

My overarching goals for the week are to:

  • print ASL flash cards
  • practice piano 5x ( I’ve already practiced once )
  • write a short essay for the honors society
  • embroider daily

I’ll update in 3 hours. Hope y’all are well :grin:

EDIT: so far I’ve practiced piano and reviewed math. I’ve also watched a video that uses ASL which is a habit I’m thinking about getting into ( if I’m not already setting too many goals lol ).
I’m probably going to eat then try and finish English. If I have time, I’ll do Latin and embroidery after dinner ( which is in another 3-ish hours ). I’ll check in 2 hours from now

EDIT: i spent 2 hours working on a project for my sibling :joy: turns out, there wasn’t an English quiz so I did the reading and prepared for class. I did manage to embroider, but no Latin. Its due in 2 days, so I’ll try and finish it tomorrow. Overall, pretty good day!

@Bubbles17 how do you plan on relaxing? How did your plans go?

My goals for the day:

  • translation Latin homework ( 2 passages ) and practice the flash cards if I have time
  • math ( however many pages I can fit in an hour-ish )
  • practice piano
  • embroidery the leaves in my pineapple ( probably after school )

I’ll try and check in as I complete each thing ( instead of by hour )

EDIT: I set aside some time for Latin, but didn’t get to it, thanks to a nasty asthma attack. I’m trying not to be disappointed but it kinda sucks :neutral_face: oh well!

EDIT: finished Latin!! I only have half an hour for math, but I’m still going to try and get it all done

EDIT: I did some math, and “practiced” piano ( it was mainly just messing around but I’m going to count it lol ). I’ll embroider later when I’m waiting, but I’m pretty much done for the day!

Imma just do whatever I wanna do. That’s relaxing to me. That’s exactly what I did up until now.
