I have possibly bitten off more than I can chew.
In addition to having a fulltime job (which, by the way, is totally breaking my brain at the moment) I seem to have committed myself to about a thousand other things. I’m studying for a Diploma through work, taking a Saturday art class, and I’m also signed up for two e-courses which are running concurrently for the next couple of months. I’m doing NaBloPoMo and the 30 Day Photo Challenge, and since I’m a terrible perfectionist I’m trying to do everything as well as I possibly can.
(Oh, plus that little thing called Christmas that’s coming up! We’re hosting dinner for 10, and gearing up for having house guests for 3 weeks. Lots to do!)
This post isn’t about seeing the error of my ways, though. I thrive on having too much to do, especially when so many of the things on my “to do” list are fuelling my creative juices! Tonight I came home from work with a heavy head cold, desperate to fall into a coma for 12 hours. But instead I did a little watercolour drawing, I took my photo for the 30 Day Photo Challenge (which, I’ll admit, is just a snapshot this time) and wrote this blog post so that I didn’t miss any of my deadlines.
Tomorrow I’ll wake up wishing that I’d gone to bed early, but I’ll also be happy that I did something towards all of my little creative endeavours.
(You know. Once I’ve had my first two cups of coffee.)
