Check it out; it’s an AMAZING game.
Having said that, there’s also the matter of feeling drained:
- My job, while not necessarily physically taxing, can be mentally exhausting
- I’ve been getting asthma attacks for almost 2 weeks now, WTH
- I had to basically rip apart and restructure an outline to finish my Project TIMES submission before our deadline
- My cats are…they’re being my cats
And frankly, it’s hard to take a break because:
- I actually love my job—working with keywords may not be your thing, but I find them interesting
- The existence of no-drowse/low-drowse antihistamines means I have to keep going unless the attack requires the use of a nebulizer
- Even though I’ve submitted my story, the work isn’t done—we need to promote the anthology*…and I volunteered to run a poetry workshop (more on that in another post)
- One of my cats is sick, another one might POTENTIALLY get sick, and yet another one probably needs to get her shots AND get spayed
So what does this mean? This means that I have to actually MAKE time to plan out every dang thing I need to be doing for the next month or so. I might even read this book to get ideas on how to do that on a larger scale.
I’m not a scheduling kind of gal, but I think I need to start doing that right now because:
- When I don’t have a schedule to follow, I tend to either derp around or overtax myself doing stuff for other people
- It will force me to really think about what goals I need to prioritize, and what steps need to be taken to achieve those goals
- I’ve developed the skill of telling the time based on TV shows crime channels, and I’m not sure that’s a good thing
I’ve tried this before, of course. But I FAILED. I need to know how to do this and STICK to it. You guys have any idea how we can get this done? Please let me know!
Help me, theoretical readers of this blog. You’re my only hope.
