I'm changing my daily schedule again.
I've been exercising around lunchtime because my body tends to feel best during that period but it's been interrupting my work flow more than I'd like. This morning, I completed a short run before work. Everything about morning exercise is ideal—except for how much my body hates mornings. There is no such thing as perfect... this appears to be the closest. We'll see how it goes. I've been trying to become a morning person for like 7 years.
Over in tarot-land, I managed to make some headway on the big, conceptual sketching I'd planned last week. I've come to the point where I've done just about as much pre-work as (1) I can think of and (2) I can handle. It's time to start drawing. I'll be working on The Fool card this week.
Things are getting busy again. I have a fair amount of work to do for my design contracting job and I have a small list of commissions building up.
It looks like I'm going to be taking a week off in July to go to the beach—finally haha. Somewhat externally imposed... now that we're vaccinated, social and family events are beginning to line up so it's no longer a question of "when do I want to give myself a staycation?" but rather a "when can I get a few days off in between all of these thiiiings?" This makes it all a little more real. I'm not going to lie—it's intimidating.
The stress is building slowly... It's not too bad yet. I hope to prevent it from getting out of control. I should be able to control that through a combination of to-do list caution and a few long afternoons of deep, focused work. I'll update you next week on the success of this morning exercise situation.
'Til next time, friends!
