adulthood is a menace

I am TERRIBLE at making time for the things I want to do and, to be fair, am only marginally better at both making the time and expending the energy to do the things I have to do, but I am very tired of myself for not making time to blog which is something I desperately want to do.

How do you make time for all the things you have to do and all the things you need to do and all the things you want to do? I have the same number of hours in a day as Beyonce and Lin-Manuel Miranda, but they don’t really have to sit in an office for 8-11 hours every day doing things that have no relation to what they want to be doing. You have the same number of hours in a day, but the allocation of those hours is incomparable.

My point, though, is not to whine because I got mad at a motivational image on Facebook (I actually didn’t even recently see it, I just got mad after the fact while writing this post. The human mind is a Thing.) – my point was to show up here and write something down for the sake of having done it and because I like doing it. I am thirty-one and can no longer make super meaningful promises about how I want to spend my time because my time is largely not my own. I am married. I have a full-time job. I am trying to buy a house. I have living creatures to take care of and keep alive, including myself.

Adulthood is a menace.

At least my dog is cute.

  • I’m in love with your dog!! The cutest!!!

  • Jeff Guiang

    And here I keep thinking: so many boys so little time. Hahaha just kidding. Yep, your dog is cute!

  • i need to see more of your dog on social media.
    i am also having a hard time keeping up with my internet love right now. as you can see, i am responding to this two weeks late.
    and i also hate that beyonce quote. yes, we have the same hours. no i don’t have a personal assistant and a vast fortune at my disposal.
