Time, never enough time. I know we talk about this a lot here on TAY, but there’s a reason for it! Time is pervasive, uncaring, and unstoppable. The ebb and flow of events both big and small are an ever careening river, never ceasing despite our protests.
And gosh-darnit I’ve got some protests.
As always, I’m struggling with basic time management. I get up early, but not early enough to do anything other shower and leave just before being late. I work until 7 PM, having just enough time to get the work that’s required of me finished in a timely manner. Then I get home, and despite having an entire evening open to me for the next 6 or 7 hours, I never seem to end the night on a note of “I finished everything I wanted to get done today”. You know those silly “pick two: work, sleep, or social life” graphs? I feel like it’s a goddamn hexagon for me these days.
Some days I’m lucky, I feel like I’ve got four of these completed before hitting the pillow. (Other days, I don’t get a healthy amount of sleep to compensate) Nailing five in one day is a miracle, and six is magical unicorn that farts rainbows and YouTube fan-bases.
Notice how TAY articles aren’t even on that list? Yea, I wish they were too!
For now, there’s not much I can do about this. I know this is an issue that every single person on the planet deals with constantly, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying sometimes. All I want is to finish Pillars of Eternity, while recording seven videos of League of Legends a week, while streaming at least twice, while having a day job, while getting 7 hours of sleep every night, while keeping LadyRer happy and loved. Simple, right?
I think what I need to do is set self-contained, small, reachable goals. Little progresses in each of these areas on the day to day. That, or I just need to map out my week with a schedule: one day is dedicated purely to recording for the whole week, few days are down days for relationship time and just relaxing, dedicated streaming days, and always scheduling chores/sleep in the mix. But that sounds so intimidating and I’m concerned I’d just never follow it. :I Anyways, that’s my rant. Life is good, and I am very thankful for the things I do I have in my life. I just wish I had more time to enjoy the wondrous opportunities I’m presented with!
