posted May 7, 2022 11:04 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Tue May 10 at 11:00 AM
Have you been procrastinating on some paperwork? Would mild peer pressure from other MeFites help you get started? Join a 25-minute coworking session!
This will be a 25-minute call where everybody gets started on tedious/terrible stuff like tax returns, finding a new doctor, expense reports, making maintenance appointments, etc. Videocall -- camera on or off. Feel free to share your screen for increased accountability!

A few minutes of "Here's what I'm working on" settling-in
20 minutes of quiet work, and then a few minutes of "here's what I got done"
If anyone wants to stick around to chitchat after they can.

I will host this meeting on, a videoconference platform you can visit in a web browser on mobile or desktop. You don't have to make an account to participate in the call. If you RSVP by like 10 minutes before the meeting then I will MeMail you the URL.

11am Eastern Time (I am in New York City). I think MetaFilter adjusts the display to your time zone? Odd, looks like it doesn't...

Oh lovely! I have some setup stuff for my shiny new freelance LLC and this will be a good push. Thanks, brainwane!
