When I started this whole endeavor I thought, “Great! I’ll be able to talk about this and this and maybe I can do a weekly thing about blah, blah, blah…” Now it’s kind of like, “Oh my god, has it really been a week since I was able to get something down?!”
Time goes SO FAST. Our schedules are getting crazy and there are so many things I try to squeeze into every day. How do you manage it all? I’m a Virgo, and an analyst, so I have a tendency to try to organize everything (yes, all of you who’ve known me for too long insert eye roll here). I feel like if I plan allotments of time for everything thing I want to do I’ll at least manage to fit in a little bit of all of it. That’s how I manage work, that’s how I manage data, but unfortunately I can’t seem to manage life that way. It takes the joy and creativity out of everything.
One day soon I hope I can talk in detail about how great the last episode of Heroes was, or how much I enjoyed the round of pictures I was able to take in Cincinnati or about the myriad other things that pop into my head and then so quickly slip away. We’ll see…
(Sidebar: My mind is like a sieve lately and it feels like the holes are getting bigger. Random thoughts come and go so fast and I think, “I should really blog that” but then by the time I’m home it’s gone. I’m trying to find a way to catch it all. Then I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool to track every random thought I have over the course of one day?” That was followed by even more randomness and a final thought that maybe, just maybe, that may come off more crazy-guy-walking-down-the-street-talking-to-himself than I would like.)
(Sidebar 2: See – sieve! I had a second sidebar in my head as I was writing the first one. Now…GONE!)
So, back to the numbers and measures and things that I can actually control and sort and manage. Maybe I’ll fun stuff will come sooner next time around.
