I Don’t Know Much, But I Know I Love That 1 Thing

Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing.

My 1 thing for the week is to do all that moving stuff that has to get done when you move. Including: Send proof of income and tax return  (how convenient that I did them!) and old landlord info to new landlord. Talk with old landlord about moving day and key drop-off. Decide if it’s  better to sell my mattress to the new person moving in to my room or try to bring it with me (I decided to sell). Negotiate with new person. Figure out how to get money from new person. Settle up on bills with my current roommates. Get any new bills in my name that I need to. AND SO ON. And then put all of my crap in bags and walk those bag downstairs and then drive those bags across town and then walk those bags upstairs and then take a nap.

I’m still looking for apartments. I’ve only managed to get a viewing for one! One! And also it was the fucking worst.

moving ahhhh so difficult. my roommate is moving out and a new one is moving in and i kinda want to switch bedrooms in between but even moving all my shit across the hall is giving me agita.

ALSO logan STILL dying to know why you are moving…

Oy, that sounds like a lot, but yay to new place?

I did my one thing yesterday – dropping off the leased modem at the Time Warner offices. Took two hours (most of it travel, maybe a quarter of the time was spent waiting)!

The thing I always forget about moving is that it is the literal worst. I’m moving at the end of the month and so is one of my housemates. The complications behind getting back my part of the deposit and paying him his part the deposit is stressing me out. We have an informal month to month lease so I’ve been acting as te banker making sure the bills are paid. Now that two of us are leaving I need to hand that off while settling up with the other departing roomie and making sure i get what I need. Also I need to by some pots.. This post just triggered major anxiety.

@EvanDeSimone to help with the anxiety: remove the “s” from the second to last sentence of your comment. you’re welcome.

My Thursday list is usually a manageable 3-4 things, but somehow it is currently at 14. How did this happen? I am genuinely bewildered.

after a week of my left eye randomly tearing up every morning when i get to work, i finally made an eye appointment today! and i made a dentist appointment last week!

there are probably other things that i need to do, but i have blocked them from my memory. oops. i guess they’ll have to wait until next week.

all “just 1 thing” posts should include references to lyrics.

– doing that 1 thing you do
– just 1 thing and i fell so hard
– 1 thing you make my heart sing, 1 thing i think i love you.

@readyornot my first, my last, my just 1 thing

@readyornot 1 thing leads to another :(

I gotta call my bank and figure out if I got the cash back rewards I was supposed to get from my credit card. The statement is so confusing I can’t figure it out.

I guess that’s my “1 thing” for this evening.

Sallie Mae f-ed up my student loan payments again. So I’ll call them and they will promise to sort things out and put everything on deferment for another month, at which point the cycle will repeat itself.

One Thing Thursday! Ugh, my one thing is figuring out how to upgrade the OS for my Macbook. I was zipping along merrily on 10.5.8 til Chrome and Flash stopped being supported. Does anyone know what to do when your system is too old to upgrade directly from the current version and the intermediate upgrade is a zillion bucks on Amazon?

muggles (#1,525)

@littleoaks AHH this happened to me too, and I can’t decide if it’s worth the OS upgrade $$$ to not have to click “Run this time” on every. single. page. or if I should just go back to Firefox in the mean time, which at least seems to be semi-functional.

My biggest issue with any upgrade is that you can’t take screenshots from DVD player any more, and my shoops will surely suffer as a result.

I’m trying to apply to a job as a communications coordinator and of course I have no idea what to write in my cover letter.

Ha ha!


sintaxis (#2,363)

@beatricks@twitter My thing today was write a cover letter as well! I used it for two different applications, so it’s like I got a bonus thing done without trying!

honey cowl (#1,510)

I did my 1 thing! It did not make me cry this week!!! Weeeeeeeeeeee

Ahhh I don’t have a 1 thing! I did one on Monday(?), set up my mortgage payments to come out every two weeks after payday, so it’s a little easier on my wallet AND I will be making an extra payment every year.

joyballz (#2,000)

I made a eye doctor AND dentist appointment. Took me all year to do it, but I did it.

My one thing was I guess to start exercising? Which I did yesterday, but now I’m exhausted today (I stayed up late to watch Nashville, totally worth it but totally never doing it again, ondemand all the way) sooo my days-in-a-row exercise streak will stand at 1 for now.

aetataureate (#1,310)

@polka dots vs stripes Man just do some easy stuff in your home if you want. But also, great job for starting!

frenz.lo (#455)

My one thing today was supposed to be to ask my boss about a work situation, but then my boss had a family emergency and left early. Now my one thing has to be to do some laundry so that I can keep dressing within the theme that I myself set for the month (Gothtober) and made some of my work buddies agree to. They have been utterly smoking me in Gothtober this week, and it’s embarrassing.

I have to write a self-assessment thing as part of my annual assessment process. I don’t know why, but for some reason it’s one of the most hellacious things I ever have to do for my job. Something about it drives me nuts.

selenana (#673)

Mine for this week will be to finish and send in an article I’ve been sitting on FOREVER. Worst freelancer ever. Will do it tonight after work.

my one thing for this week is to get my third hpv shot! IT MUST BE DONE.
