Well, obviously I didn’t manage to blog about a revolutionary sparkly new timetable that instantly solved all of my lifelong time-management issues. I didn’t even get to make said timetable.
What I did manage to do, though, was write out a list of my priorities to be factored into that timetable when I actually get around to fashioning it into existence (the process has begun, by the way. A Photoshop document has been made). This not-tremendously extensive list includes:
- College classes (duh)
- College work (*groan*)
- Thesis (meh)
- Writing Blue
- Le blog: Confessions of a College Dropout
- Dungeons and Drag Queens blog
- Food shopping
- Food prep
- Cycling/commuting time and
- Time with Catherine (obvs)
In an ideal world, I would be able to fit all of the above into my week, and I’m hoping I do in fact live in that ideal world. If I plan in advance I have high hopes that I can get all of this done, even if just for short bursts of time, every week.
But you know what else I did this week, while I wasn’t blogging?
I also wrote a treatment for a radio documentary which has been approved by my lecturer and I’ve made a start on pre-production. I spent two days on film sets, both in crew and acting capacities. I submitted an assignment on time and I kept up to date with another assignment. I’ve generated a few ideas for my next short film script. I attended a party and met new people. I arrived into college early two mornings and got extra work done. I set up an appointment with my thesis supervisor lady so that I now have a definite deadline for my first chapter. I went to all my classes. I made some tiny traffic lights, for crying out loud!
It’s important to remember that, even though I’m not always doing what I want to be doing, I’m still accomplishing a lot.
So, I am still going to try to re-juggle some things, as promised, but I’m not going to punish myself for missing some blogs. Instead, I choose to congratulate myself on engaging in any creative or productive practices. I’m letting myself off the hook and acknowledging that I’ve been doing well but that I can still do better.
I watched another time-management talk. Hoping something will get through to me! I highly recommend this one.
