That adulting thing...
So, over the past two years, in between: ~ finally getting my AA and taking the next necessary step towards my bachelors ~ realizing I really want a house of my own and that I am years away from such a thing, ~ attempting to become more social and spend time away from home more, ~ getting the first good, non-seasonal job of my life, and trying to figure out how to stepping stone my way from there to a full-time, financially independent career, ~ trying be the fantasy novelist I dream of being, ~ my mom's and my two-person home & garden renovation mission ~ plus more and more long-term, time-consuming things that I want to do and things I need to do piling up on top of each other,
I've figured out what I need to learn above all else: How to properly manage my time. I am so sorry to everyone that I've disappeared on, and everyone that I've left waiting for messages and replies. It has never been my wish to be THAT person. I HATE being that person. There are days when I look at RP things and I just miss it so much. I miss RP; I miss my characters, and more than anything else I miss all the wonderful people that I have felt so blessed to have met through RP.
I'm going to try a new thing. Because a lot of the things I have on my list are not really concrete, one-time completable goals, but rather things like, finish drawing that comic before you forget everything you ever learned about drawing, read more new books, WRITE more books, and finish all these bloody furniture reno projects and stop bringing more projects home. I need to set shorter term goals for myself. Dailies and weeklies. Because with vague goals like "do more of this" and "work on this multi-month project", I end up staying disorganized, finishing less, and getting mad at myself for not doing everything on the list.
So here's me, meeting a goal for today: post something RP-related and talk to RP friends. Goal for tomorrow (among many other things) - RESPOND to RP friends.
