Whew, y’all I’m about done with technology today. Between putting in applications for new jobs, and trying to get into my editor email but having my laptop run as slow as a turtle, I’m ready to head to bed 😭

But I knew I couldn’t skip yet ANOTHER DAY of blogging. At this point, I don’t know if I’ve got any hope left for the rest of February when it comes to blogging every day. I’m simply having a hard time forming this routine again after some slight changes, and it’s KILLING ME.

Not to mention, well, the whole reason why I titled this post what I did. It seems like these days, no matter how much I feel like I’ve accomplished on my daily to do list, something else always needs to be done. I could be done with my creative stuff for the day, but oh, my laundry and the dishes aren’t done. I could turn in a poem that needed to be turned in A WEEK AGO, but then forget that this whole time I was supposed to be editing a paper days ago as well.

The work is never ending. I’m a little tired to say the least. I enjoy doing these things, but I’m not enjoying not prioritizing and organizing my time the way I should. I don’t know what it is in my brain that refuses to set reminders or write things down so I don’t forget. Maybe it’s because I don’t want to admit I’m getting older 🥹 and I want my brain to function like it always has – always remembering things without needing to be reminded.

But I also believe it’s because some of the things I do just aren’t a part of my normal routine. I don’t get consistent editing work (unfortunately), so when I do, I forget about it because I’m not used to actually doing that stuff on a consistent basis.

Maybe I’m making excuses for myself. Just let me, it’s late 😂

But I do want to be better in this aspect so, starting tomorrow, I definitely will be writing out my to-do list and if something new should arise…I WILL IMMEDIATELY WRITE IT DOWN OR MAKE A REMINDER SO I CAN ACCOMPLISH IT.

We’ll see how this goes I guess. 🤷🏽‍♀️
