At last I see the light… and that is an enormous lie right there but I would like to see the light at some point, and by “light” I mean the proverbial floor of my to-do list slash brain, so I’m inspiring myself with a picture I took at a B&B in Brighton in 2008. I wanted some color and some sunshine and it was right there. It’s certainly nowhere to be seen around here, and yes, I do realize I’m babbling and I probably don’t make any sense. Bear with me, I’ve been up all night for no reason other than my sleep schedule is a mess and it’s 7:50 AM. I’m writing this in an attempt to avoid what happened yesterday morning and the morning before that and quite possibly, I don’t remember, the morning before that: I lay down to rest up at 6-7 AM with the intention of getting back up when the sun rose, and then I got lazy and lay down further and slept through the daylight hours.
So I want to see the light in more ways than one, I guess. Here comes the sun, na na na na.[Cont’d at 8:30 PM:] Well, the sun came and went. Fuck.
Last Week Recap
Do you guys ever feel like the more you get done, the more you have left to do? Last week, I designed a four-page media kit (for Jessiker Bakes), a resume (my resume), a set of shop graphics (for Atomic Stitch), and I figured out PDF conversion for print design; I added resume design to my Etsy shop offerings; I got back to a ridiculous amount of people — and I mean ridiculous, and ridiculously delayed in some cases. I also did some journaling.
But I utterly failed at my weekly goals. It was kind of catastrophic, honestly. See above re: my sleep schedule, I didn’t write a word even though I have things to write (I think it would help if I got paid before writing them instead of after, but maybe not), I barely touched my closet and drawers or even brainstormed much at all for organizing my room, and my brain is an absolute mess.
Declutter. I’m approaching this from two perspectives:
» Get it out of my head. It’s time to make some lists and lay everything out so it doesn’t seem quite so overwhelming. It really isn’t that bad. My work is not going to kill me. Not unless I let it.
» Lay it all out. Figure out what I have to store and how to store it. Blog about it, even.
That’s it. That’s my goal.
As always, I appreciate any tips you have to share with me! And I’d love to hear what you’re planning to accomplish this week.
