Fitting in Time
Friday, December 04, 2015
So, I stink at time management. This has become even more apparent as I am jobless and have no set schedule for the day. I sleep too late most days, making getting anything done near impossible.
I keep trying to get up at a reasonable hour (7? 8?) so that I can actually fit in exercise, but it's proving to be very hard. Part of the reason it's gotten so much harder is that it's the holidays and I have all these extra things to do. The other reason is that I started an online class that last for 6 weeks this week. Looking back on it, I probably should have started in January after the holidays were over, but, like usual, I didn't really think ahead.
So here I am at 6:30 pm on a Friday night. Today I went to a monastery for their patronal feast day, which was wonderful and amazing, but I was gone by 6:20 am and didn't get home until 5:30. My day is now gone. I still have 3 hours of classwork to do, other things to be read, dinner to eat (PB&J, anyone?), and a cake to bake for my church's own patronal feast, which is tomorrow night. I just can't do all that in the next 3 hours before it's time to go to bed. I'm hoping to read and eat and sleep tonight. I know that baking that cake, which I've now put off for 2 days, will get me out of bed tomorrow morning. That and the thought of all the homework I have to do. And the packing I have to do for the patronal feast as I won't be home Saturday night. Somehow, someway, I have to fit in some exercise tomorrow. I'm struggling so much right now balancing my priorities. It's insane.
