The Accountability Thread

Looking around some personal posts here, there seems to be a recurring theme of needing to simply own up and go through with a certain action or idea. I figured this might be a potential way to help out with that situation.

Basically, my idea is you post something that needs to be done in this thread, then people posting here will actively check up on you and make sure you go through with it. If need be, you can talk it out here, and even enlist someone to PM you and personally remind you to get it done. Maybe even put a timetable on your posts, so others know just how much pressure to put on you. It can also just simply be a place to come if you need encouragement with a difficult task :) make of it what you want, in all honesty.

Sorry if it's an abstract idea for a thread. I'll delete it if it sucks butt. It's also kinda lame because personal responsibility is lame but whatevs0rz.

To get the ball rolling, I need to be held accountable to move out in two months' time. If I'm not out by October, please patronize me ITT so by November, I'll be on my way out.


Person - Thing - Deadline

Blake (that's me!!!) - move out - End of November
Harvey Swick - break up with GF - 2013
eGraham - job - Week of October 8th
ESPLTDV401DX - don't hold back - 5ever

AdamGur96 - Start working out, get a six pack again - Feb 2013
WCPhils - lose weight - forever
ErikLensherr - straight As - end of semester
fender696 - writing his book - ongoing
Skynrd890 - get a job - January 1, 2013
necrosis1193 - write EP, more creative writing - end of year
yoman297 - Album - October 12th
GazzaCee - Get a job/Abstain from masturbation/Write more music - December 2012/1st November 2012/infinity

That color scheme is a blight on the eyes.

I'll ready my patronizing pen.

Hmm... I really need to get a job within the next two weeks. Tuition isn't going to pay itself

Talk about a bad feeling..

This sounds like a great idea actually but at the moment I can't really think of much else other than I need to quit holding back and being timid when I'm reading a script.
