It's late on a Friday night. So late, that it's technically Saturday. My sleep schedule is completely backwards here lately. Twice this week I didn't go to sleep until like 5 or 6 in the morning. Umm, what is that? I always think I'll get up early, and be so tired the next night that I will go to bed a decent hour...and the whole situation will right itself.
It's like my body has an aversion to sleeping at night. I read somewhere today (probably Pinterest, as that is my new source of education) that we should set a curfew for television and computer use that coincides with day and night. For example, if it's dark outside, everything get's turned off.
There is probably some truth in that though. I'm always like "well I'm not tired, lets see what's going on on Pinterest and/or Instagram". Inevitably I end up following a new blog (or ten) and subscribing to a new YouTube channel (or ten).
I'm a mess.
I feel like a broken record by saying that I need to simplify my life and get organized. I'm a big believer that cluttered homes = cluttered minds and that cluttered minds are the basis of unproductivity. And me? I'm the queen of undproductivity!!
Obviously, my solution was to scour 'the internets' and see what I could find in terms of getting things in gear. Ha. Unproductivity - counterproductivity at it's finest.
The good news? I feel like I have hit rock bottom with my frustration (sounds positive, right?!). But, as I've alluded to several times in the last few weeks, I just sort of feel out of control. With my house, my finances, my faith, my weight loss journey, not to mention all the other issues going on in my life that I have no actual control over.
I'm a determined girl. I'm fully motivated (and maybe a little delirious). And, I'm ready to start organizing, cleaning and taking back control over things. Yay!
Obviously, I'm not giving up social media anytime soon. I mean, it's how I make some of my living. I love it. But, that is the first (and possibly the easiest) area to really simplify. My google reader is really scary. I end up hitting 'mark all read' more often than not...because there is really no way to read 1200 blog posts each week. Nor, do I have any business doing so. Also? My facebook. I am friends with the majority of my high school classmates. I'm highly annoyed by many of them and their daily posts. So, my goal for the weekend? Purge those two.
Yes, filing is next week's task. Be jealous.
