How Do You…?


I’m having a really hard time getting in everything that I have to do each day in order to be successful:

1) Enough exercise

2) Work

3) Personal Endeavors

4) Sleep

At present I’m only hitting #1 and #2 on a consistent basis, and not really even getting in enough exercise to feel like I’m going to ever lose weight. I’m averaging around 5 to 6 hours of sleep a night, and that comes at the expense of doing ENOUGH work (still so much to get done, and I’m not making any money right now, so that’s a real fucking bummer). Where does all of this leave #3? I’m not doing much of anything to pursue personal interests like origami, reading, writing, and my personal business.

True, I could be working harder right now, instead of blogging, but blogging is the last bastion of personal time, and I refuse to give it up, even if I have to do it half-heartedly.

What am I going to do? I’m getting worn out from too much work and not enough of anything else, and my bank account is practically sobbing with hunger.

It’s time to reevaluate, and devote more time to me, I guess. Is that the right thing? What is the right thing? I’m actually swimming in exhaustion right now as I type, so “right thing” sounds vaguely ominous. Oh geez. I need help.

  1. sometimes I think about writing a post about how blogging is wrecking my life….BUT then I think no, I am out there taking photos which fills my creative needs, and learning the love of the written word and being inspired by all my bloggy friends. Thats great and all but, still I probably should be doing other things like trying to make some cash or bake freaking cookies for my kids. I guess the hard part is finding the balance. I feel you for sure. It will happen. For me sleep is # 1. even a 20 min nap helps!

    You’re so right about sleep. I realized today that lately I’m always either sick, tired, or both. Sometimes all you can do is take a nap and let the world take care of itself 🙂
