Most days I feel like I am running late from the minute I open my eyes. I feel like I’m constantly rushing and I’m always out of time. There are so many things for me to do in a day and at least 90% of them stay unfinished. Too many things to do and not enough time to do them all. It’s very frustrating.
I want my house to be clean all the time. I want to cook dinner every night. I want to bake every day. I want to spend at least an hour at the gym. I want to get my nails done once a week. I want to read three books a week and watch enough movies to cut my Netflix queue down from 400 movies.
I’ve tried everything to “create” more time in the day. I’ve tried getting up earlier and going to sleep later, but then I’m tired and unproductive, so that didn’t work. I’ve tried going to sleep earlier and getting up later…hoping that I’d be more rested and more efficient. The increase in efficiency didn’t make up for the additional hours of sleep, so that plan didn’t work either.
I’ve determined that the real time killer is my job. Between commuting and working, that’s like 11 hours a day…precious time that I could be using to do other, more worthwhile things…like blogging, hanging out with my dogs and watching TV. Work is so freaking inconvenient. I wouldn’t mind it so much if I was doing something important that contributed something to society…like medical research or educating children. But I don’t do anything like that. Quitting my job is such a rational solution to my time problems. Of course, that would create a whole new lack of money problem.
I have run out of ideas for making my days run more smoothly and for getting more things done. Does anyone else have any brilliant solutions they’d like to share? I’m pretty much open to anything.
