something’s gotta give.

After 27 years of living, you’d think I’d be used to the 24 hours that occur every day. And yet, I’m not. I constantly feel like there is too much to do, and not enough time. I keep waiting for the days to get longer, but they never do. In a perfect world, I’d have more time to workout, read, relax, blog, cook, have sex, garden, shop, clean, nap, volunteer and organize – in no particular order.  I’d be the best employee ever, I’d learn to scrapbook, have our Thailand trip planned, and I’d be able to spend quality time with all of my family and each of my friends.  I would write more personal notes and mail them. I’d make thoughtful, home-made birthday gifts and I’d prepare crazy-romantic dinners. I’d finally study for the gmat and I’d learn to play the piano beautifully…with time left to watch all my Netflix and become proficient in Adobe Premiere Pro. I’d write that novel that’s stashed away in my nightstand – in fact, I’d write two. I’d go for more bike rides and play bocce ball more often. I’d host more dinners and throw parties. I would make more time for picnics, star-gazing and internet surfing. I’d always get my oil changed on time. And then I’d get a good 8 hours of sleep.

Sometimes I feel like I’m going through life half-ass. Trying to accomplish a lot, and instead not doing anything well. It’s kind of a helpless, sinking feeling.  Something’s gotta give.

a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
