What keeps you on the straight and narrow?
I use Habitica (formerly HabitRPG) to keep track of my to-do list and to make sure that I stay on task and finish the things I need to do. It includes habits like “15 minutes of focused work” and “30 minutes of focused work” (yes, Pomodoro method!), and also task-based benchmarks like “one pass on a paper” or “finish a blog entry.”
What I need is a better method of keeping track of long-term projects. I have a Swedish translation project I want to get done; I want to finish revising a novel manuscript; I want to finish reading approximately half a dozen books.
And above photo is also relevant because it was my birthday on Wednesday and I have spent the last few days treating myself to a kladdkaka that my sambo baked for me from scratch. Once in a while you need to venture off the straight and narrow path and indulge, in food as in anything else.
Who in your life is a real straight shooter?
Noah (another friend I’ll be visiting en route to the wedding this August) is probably the most forthright friend I have. Exhibit A: After a 24-hour bus journey across three states to see him for the first time in over a year, his first words to me were: “Whoa, you need a shower.”
My dad could probably also take this prize. (This is probably why I get along with Noah so well.)
How straight are your teeth and hair?
My teeth are pretty well aligned. My hair is naturally a touch wavy, which can make having bangs/fringe a little tricky. If you dry them the wrong way, the end result can be a very goofy look.
What’s a good song with the word straight in its lyrics or title?
What’s something that needs straightening?
My apartment. 🙁 Speaking of long-term projects I have yet to get around to…!
