Sorry I’ve been such a lazy writer! I swear I’m alive, happy and all that stuff.
I’m actually really, really happy. It’s been a real adjustment to be so busy at work, but I love it. Music is back in my life, and I finally feel like myself again.
Unfortunately, part of feeling like myself again has meant falling prey to my old standby: “But I’m busy!” I do have a lot of things to do. I do stay later at work than I ever have before. Tough shit, Anne. Do it. This is why you worked so hard over the past few years.
Since starting my new job, I’ve been too easy on myself, and I’m averaging 30 minutes, twice a week, of moderate exercise. Much better than anything I ever used to do years ago, but still… pretty sad, considering what I had worked up to.
So, these are the things I need to do for 30-60 minutes (almost) every day after work:
- cook a decent dinner
- German Rosetta Stone (then eventually French, Russian…it never ends!)
And since I must have structure to get anything done when I feel busy, I need to make myself a checklist and/or schedule. Pathetic, but at least I know myself well enough to know it’s necessary.
By the way, the irony is not lost on me that I now make schedules for a living, and I’ve been so bad at sticking to one…
