I’m currently in the middle of a lot of things, and I’ve had to be very patient with waiting for a couple of business related things to work out. As it stands right now, my professional schedule is very flexible, although my bank account isn’t. I’ve had an unusually large amount of time to spend with loved ones, although I know things are about to get a lot busier around here. At this point, I would have no need to make use of a calendar to keep track of what I should be doing, but in preparation for my eventual explosion of work responsibilities (which I desperately need), it’s not a bad idea to prepare for being a lot more scheduled. A pen and paper calendar is definitely not an option, but an online solution called 30 Boxes will prove to be helpful to anyone who needs scheduled reminders.

The appearance of the calendar is obviously no big surprise because we’re all used to what they are and how they work. However, the online interaction with 30 Boxes is efficient and satisfying, and it helps to update this classic to the Web 2.0 style of things. Plan events, take notes, tag your appointments, and invite your buddies to contribute to your daily planner. I like what I see, and I’m currently torn between the OS X Gray and Gmail Blue themes. Decisions, decisions.
