Mostly, it’s because it’s still February [shakes a fist at the sky] and that alone makes me vaguely lethargic and a little stupid. But, more to the point, I had a not-huge-but-not-small-either paper to write for each of the two classes I’m taking — and they both took up an absolutely RIDICULOUS amount of my time. Like, way WAY more time than I thought they would, and as a result almost nothing else got done.
I didn’t get anything else written (for this blog or anything else). Dinners were half-assed (or, more likely, takeout). My bathroom has almost degraded to the point that it looks like it belongs in a frat house.
Now, on the one hand, I really want to take on more writing, but at the same time, I think I need to get a better handle on figuring out how to do more than one thing — not “more than one thing” like, do a phone interview while making a soufflé and teaching my kid multiplication but more like, get some work done but still do some other stuff that I want/need to do that day.
So… tips? Ideas? Suggestions for helpful books/websites/liquors?
