I was thinking about my last post and I realized that maybe you could have found it too heavy and negative. This is maybe because you don’t know what my lists looked like at the very beginning.
I’ve been struggling since I can remember but until I moved to Ireland the lists didn’t include writing duties as I took my dream back only recently- well 7 years ago, as it is.
Plus, it might be that lately I’m a bit negative, I can give you that, but it’s a tough period. Anyway, believe it or not once I tried to write on a piece of paper how long would it take to complete each activity. Even if I kept a minimum the minutes dedicated to each voice in the list, the result was 52 hours per list! I know, it’s unbelievable!
I considered sleeping every second day but, as you have understood, I don’t work too well with hours short of sleep.
So I started to a drastically shortening of the list.
Little by little I was taking things off the lists and then try to spread the activities thorough all the week- since I understood I couldn’t do everything every single day.
But to give you an idea the following is a list, as far as I remember of course, similar to the ones I use to make.
So, in an average day I was expecting from me:
Getting up, showering, dressing
Cleaning the house (That was half size compared to the one I have now)
Cooking lunch and dinner
Studying English Grammar
Studying Spanish Grammar
Studying Japanese Grammar
Writing a blog post
Studying something for research
Drafting a manuscript
Doing some physical activity
And this is a shorter version than I remember for sure.
Now, do you understand my rant?
Is anybody else out there listing?
