Sometimes I get myself going on too many projects at once. They aren’t even really projects, more like too many tasks in the day. I can make myself so busy with little things like laundry or updating my Tumblr queue that my day fills up before I know it.
It leaves very little time for the things I actually want to do, like sewing, knitting, playing music, etc. (Although Tumblr isn’t exactly a chore, but setting my queue after leaving it for months can be.) So sometimes I have to hijack my own to-do list and prioritize a fun thing for a week. Sure, I did start my laundry before I sat down on my bed to start demoing some songs, and I got back to it when my hour was up. But I had to set aside an hour to just sit down, write, and record a bit.
I’m always trying to get everything else done before letting myself do what I really want, and I usually run out of time. That, or my brain shuts down and refuses to do anything other than watch Parks and Rec or play video games. I’m trying to sneak more fun into my schedule. So far my brain is liking the idea.
