{ Cate’s Diner }

Always, I brag with my boyfriend (who is very disorganized, more than me), about being organized and punctual (he is not very punctual at all, he is working in that area), but I started noticing that I lack those attributes today (well, since November 2008).

I was a very responsible, organized, punctual and studious person. Today I’m not those things any more, and I do not like it at all. I feel bad about it.

So, I had this idea a long time ago, to write a blog about my academic and professional rising, from a disorganized undergraduate student to a successful graduate girl student, and professional woman.

Now that I have said about what is this blog about, let me tell you something very important: if you want to work in the same things like me, you need to know that nobody can change from one night to another by snapping your fingers. There is no magic. We need to work hard to achieve the change.

And two important things will help me: 1) guidance and 2) practice. Without them it will very difficult for me to advance towards the goal.

The first thing I need to do is to find out how I use my time. This is to become aware of the things I’ve been doing; unimportant things that takes valuable time of  my day, and the important things I am not doing that need attention.

Two years ago I finished undergraduate school, but did not graduate because I was stressed out. First, my due day for paying my loan was near, so I needed to get a job to have money for the deposit. Also, I needed to pay for my room in a student home that I have been renting ever since. I am not from the same city where my University is, so I needed to rent a space to stay while studying.

At that time, I needed to decide what to do with my obligations. I had to pay the credit loan, the rent, my food, and the Internet. Also, I had to find time to finish my thesis.  As well,  I had to decide if I should continue my studies in the graduate school in the same University or not. It was tempting to sign up to the Master course because of the scholarship, I thought that maybe I could pay my debts and survive with $700 US per month for the whole the semester.

But my thesis tutor was pressuring me, and I was feeling scared to fail the first semester of the Master school and if I failed it, my scholarship would have been taken down, and if I try again to study a Master degree, in the future, it will be difficult to obtain again. So I told him ‘No’, and that I would not study my Master degree the next fall (Fall 2008).

Also, I need to mention, if you accept a scholarship from the CoNaCyT, and if you fail for any reason (maybe you fail a couple of subjects, get an illness of any kind that makes you to absent for  class or test, etc.) in the semester, they take down the scholarship, and cancel future scholarship loans until you pay what they loaned you and with interests. Behold my concern about to study or not.

The next months, I tried to concentrate in my thesis and get a job, and by luck I got a job in an elementary school, teaching English. The pay was degrading, but I thought every day “I got a job” . Then I started to have problems with the principal and her kid, who made my work days difficult. I talked with my boyfriend and parents about what to do; I took the decision to quit. And at that moment my problems started escalating.

In the next month I was more stressed, scared, with a lot of debts and I started to become the person I did not want: disorganized.

I remember myself crying everyday, because I wanted to study in the Master school, but it was impossible to do that without finishing yet my thesis first. I was very frustrated then and even now. The only day I cried because something positive had happened was with Obama’s victory.

When I was in junior high school my first priority was my education, then my family and then everything else. Later, in high school,  my family was my first priority sharing the same space with my education; and today, being 25-year-old, they are my first priority.

I miss my family, and I want to finish my thesis so I can travel again to my town to live a season with them until I have to travel again to study my Ph. D.

Back at present, I need to know ‘what’, ‘when’, and ‘how’ to:

  • Prioritize
  • Organize
  • Succeed

in every area, until I learn the process.

Now that I had narrated you about my life in a brief time, let pass to the hard work.

  1. The first task is to complete the next diagram, to see how I organize my schedule everyday, before the changes start to show.

As seen in the above diagram, I spend most weekdays doing nothing of value. And I put a day when I am depressed, as example. The reality is this:

I need to teach in a workshop and sometimes I do the class, sometimes not. I want to be committed to it everyday.

I must be studying to comprehended the problems of my thesis, later to write and finish it. I want to defend my thesis next month (October 2010), but I have not been doing anything lately.

My sleep cycle is a very big problem. I want to do things at night, maybe because in the day I feel fatigued due the hot weather; other times I feel insomniac, because I worry about my problems.

I love exercising, but I have not felt the enthusiasm lately. I prefer to stay seated and to continue working on my computer.

Since the last teaching job in the school, I have not hold another steady job that pays me in a regular period, so along with my boyfriend, I start searching a second job like internships, because I do not want to take a bus (I feel stressed just by thinking of doing it. Also I’m allergic to the sunrays.) I want to finishing paying my loan debt as soon as possible.

As I said before, I live very far from my family, I miss them a lot, I cry one or two days a week because of that. I had an aunt, but lately we are not that close, so technically I am alone, so zero family commitments.

Some days I feel very happy and without thinking, I take a bath. I love those days. But others I feel sad and it seems more of these that from the firsts.

I love to cook, but the last moth I ceased to cook completely. The things I had eaten are not healthy,  and the tableware have been dirty for days, until I must wash them because there is no one left clean.

I do not use any transportation to school, because I do not go anymore; neither to work, because I do not have one. I work from my department.

Uuuh, I can not deny I have been relaxing a lot. I have started this month watching Full House, since its first season. Now I’m in the last episodes of the fourth season. Since September 3rd, I have been watching Playful Kiss, korean version of Itazura na kiss. And when my boyfriend does not have another things to do, we watch Dawson’s Creek. And some other days I just watch some videos, just to know about the plot.

On my last days in undergraduate school, I had only two friends left. They are not so close friends, but I can at least talk to them. I can’t count the annoying neighbor, because I do not considerate her my friend. I want to avoid any relation with this woman, who by the way, is very selfish and only talks about herself all the time. I do not trust her.

About the other things, well, sometimes I do something without schedule.

As you read this post, maybe you can have the idea that I am not very organised. It might seem as if I do not care enough for my academic goals and future. But I do, only is that I’m afraid of failure, and I do not know why.

And some other days I just watch some videos, just to know about the plot.

At the final moth of my undergraduate school, I’m just have 2 friends, maybe not so close, but I can talk to them. I can’t count the annoying neighbor, because I do not considerate her my friend. I want to avoid any relation with this woman, who by the way, is very selfish and only talks about herself all the time. I do not trust in her.

About the other things, well, sometimes I do something without schedule.

As you read this post, maybe you can have the idea that I am not very organised. It might seem as if I do not care enough for my academic goals and future. But I do, only is that I’m afraid of failure, and I do not know why.

——————————————    First draft next ——————————-

I always brags about being organized and punctual, but I lack that attributes today. I was this person: responsible, organized and punctual. Today I’m a lazy girl and I do not like it at all.

And as you can guess, this blog will be my tracker or goals made realized one at a time, because I know now that I can’t change from the night to dawn like THIS. So I need:

– Guidance.

– Practice.

My first goal is: TO BECAME AWARE OF HOW I USE MY TIME.

And I got it. I’m honest, since about 2 years ago I haven’t been organized because I was suffering stress since I left undergraduate school because I need to concentrate to find a job to pay my loans:

– Money.

– Family.

– Job.

– Health.

– School.

And I tired of that order. In my first academic years, my education was sometimes in the first level as my family, who by the way today are my first level of importance.

So, now, to became aware when turn levels in a moment I need to learn:

– Organizing.

– Prioritizing.

– Succeeding.

So, my first homework is to complete the next diagram to see how I organize my schedule everyday.

(figure)

In the above “hour cake” I tried to give reasonable time to an activity, but I noticed that I have difficulty organizing it. The reality is like this.

– 1 Classes (I give a class in a workshop) .

– 0 Studying (I need to study for my last exam and thesis but I haven’t doing it).

– 4 Sleep (Is a mean time, because I have insomnia related to stress) .

– 0 Exercise/sports (I want to do some exercise but I don’t feel the enthusiasm.)

– 7 Work/internship (I have been obsess with it and consumes my hours when I feel energized) .

– 0 Family commitments (I live 4 hours apart from my family, and I want to get back to my parents house the next month).

– 1 Personal care/grooming (I have days when I bath and make me feel and look prettier, but that is SOME days).

– 3 Meal preparation/eating/clean-up (I have around a month that I do not want to cook, I just eat some food very fast and I wait to reunite a bulk of dirty plates to wash them) .

– 0 Transportation [school, work, etc.] (I do not use any of this, I work from my department.)

– 5 Relaxing/ TV/ video games, etc [alone] (yeah, I have started this month watching Full House since the first season, now I am in the middle of the fourth, two days a week I watch Playful Kiss Korean version, in the nights, with my bf Dawson’s Creek and some days just any thing that just watch to know what it is.)

– 0 Socializing/entertainment [with friends] (hmm, I do not have friend with me, yeah, I have a very annoying neighbor but that’s it, I want to cut relations with this woman who by the way is very self and self.)

– 1 Other.

So, as you can see, I’m not very organize and it feels like I do not care about my academics goals. But the reality is that I’m afraid of doing it and I do not know why.

    Trataste de decir mucho en una horación, y no siempre se te puede entender lo que quieres decir. Lo mejor es que separes una horación larga en varias pequeñas, con ideas precisas y concisas. Yo reescribiría lo anterior como:
    “And as you can guess, this blog will be my tracker for goals, realized one at a time. Since I know now that I can’t change from one night to another, I need:”

    En “My first goal is: TO BECAME AWARE OF HOW I USE MY TIME.” , es BECoME . Became es en pasado.

    “And I got it. I’m honest, since about 2 years ago I haven’t been organized because I was suffering stress since I left undergraduate school because I need to concentrate to find a job to pay my loans:”
    Yo lo escribiría como “And I know it. Being honest, since about 2 years ago, I haven’t been organized. That is because I was suffering with stress since I left school without graduating. The reason I left school was because I needed to find a job to pay for my student loans:”. Procura ser más clara con tus ideas. No trates de decir todo en una sola horación (salvo cuando sea una poesía o un cuento). Lo que escribas, leelo en voz alta para ver si tiene sentido. Trata de que tenga lógica, que suene bien, y que sea entendible para todas las personas, no solo para ti . =)

    En “And I tired of that order. In my first academic years, my education was sometimes in the first level as my family, who by the way today are my first level of importance.”, yo lo escribiría como
    “And I’m tired of that order of priorities. In my first academic years, my education was sometime in the first level, along with my family. Today, my family is in the frist level of importance.”

    “So, now, to became aware when turn levels in a moment I need to learn:” lo escribiría
    “Therefore, to become aware of when to switch levels in a given moment, I need to learn: ”

    En “(I need to study for my last exam and thesis but I haven’t doing it).” sería mejor si escribieras “(I need to study to defend my thesis, but I have not been doing it lately)”

    “(Is a mean time, because I have insomnia related to stress) .” lo escribiría como “It is a time average, since I have insomnia related to stress”

    Donde dices “I have been obsess” es “I have been obsessed”

    “(I have days when I bath and make me feel and look prettier, but that is SOME days).” lo escribiría como “(I havedays when I bath. I feel beter, and look prettier, but those are very few days.)”

    ” (I have around a month that I do not want to cook, I just eat some food very fast and I wait to reunite a bulk of dirty plates to wash them) ” lo escribiría como “(I have around a month that I have not cooked. I just eat any fast food, and wait until lots of dishes get dirty to wash them together)”

    En “(yeah, I have started this month watching Full House since the first season, now I am in the middle of the fourth, two days a week I watch Playful Kiss Korean version, in the nights, with my bf Dawson’s Creek and some days just any thing that just watch to know what it is.)” , por favor trata de no escribir tantas ideas en una sola horación. Trata de poner una, o dos ideas en una horación. Conecta las horaciones de una forma lógica. Yo escribiría eso como “(Yes, I have started this month watching Full House since it’s first season. Now I’m in the mittle of the fourth season. Two days a week I watch Playful Kiss Korean version, and on the night, with my bf Dawson’s Creek. Some other days I just watch anything just to get to know other things.)”

    En “(hmm, I do not have friend with me, yeah, I have a very annoying neighbor but that’s it, I want to cut relations with this woman who by the way is very self and self.)” sería mejor expresarlo como “hmmm, I don’t have a friend with me. Yes, I have a very annoying neighbor, but that’s it. I want to avoid any relation with this woman, who by the way, is very selfish and only talks about herself. ”

    Por último “So, as you can see, I’m not very organize and it feels like I do not care about my academics goals. But the reality is that I’m afraid of doing it and I do not know why” lo escribiría como “So, as you can see, I’m not very organized. It might seem as if I don’t care for my academic goals. But the truth is that I’m afraid of doing it and I don’t know why.”
