Bloggin' on a Tuesday


Busy, busy summer times.

I've fallen into a "head above water" season over the last few weeks. On any given day, to do list execution is a combination of daily tasks (I have a surprising amount of daily tasks), enough admin shit so I don't fall behind and lose my health insurance or something, contracting work, and "which of these other things has been on my list/lingering the longest?" Sometimes I tackle it. Sometimes it stays on the list for another day. Now that evenings and weekends are filling up again, there is no option to "do it later." This is a bit stressful—also somewhat motivating. Somewhere in between.

I worry that I won't be able to finish everything. As a part of this self-employment journey, I am essentially refusing to work long hours. There is an obvious limitation, therefore, to what I'm able to accomplish. I just don't feel the need to work a million hours anymore. Increasingly I'm learning that there is nothing I enjoy enough to do it for more than 8 hours a day. Absolutely nothing.

I'm going to the beach next week. As such, I probably won't post here on Monday. I'm very much looking forward to this break.

Quick tarot update: I have approximately 20 cards left to analyze. It's happening! Also (I have no idea if I mentioned this last time and I'm too lazy to go back and look) I'm trying to adjust my schedule so that I can devote a large chunk of one day each week to this instead of 15 minutes every day. I suspect that it will be more valuable to do it this way but I'll have to test it out to see.

That's all for today. I have to keep it quick because I want to make sure I've done enough work this week to be able to completely unplug during vacation.
