Lately I have been feeling like I have no TIME. I want to work in a job I like, post on my blog a few times a week, have a social life, keep learning French, read loads of books, keep up with current issues and exercise (well, I don’t want to exercise, but I feel like I should).
I just find myself wondering where the time will come from.
This is ridiculous. I do not have anyone depending on me, I do not have a job that requires crazy long hours and my commute is only an hour.
My French practise is slipping and if I carry on at my current rate the book I am reading will get finished around November.
I know what my real problem is: organisation.
Organisation is something I have only ever been good at when it comes to working or studying, or organising when to go drinking with friends (everyone has priorities). But I think I am going to have to get a bit more organised with my hobbies.
Rather than collapsing on the sofa on front of the TV when I get in, I should schedule some French learning time, or read the news.
Maybe I should join a book club, or an exercise class. I need to make the most of my free time, because I probably have more of it than I think I do. One day when I have more responsibility I’ll look back and wonder what I was doing with all that unfilled time!
I decided to write a plan of how to spend my time, to avoid just wasting time looking at unnecessary things on the internet. After I was done I realised that maybe I do have plenty of time, and I should stop complaining.
Train to work – read.
On bus – write some blog stuff
Lunch hour – Post/edit/schedule something on blog
Maybe join the gym at work and WORKOUT every other day for a bit before heading home
Bus and train back – read
After dinner – Practise French
Check emails properly (they’re getting a bit out of hand)
Of course, this will probably be interspersed with me occasionally checking twitter and instagram. I’m only human.
