After an awesome play date this morning with one of my good friends, my daughter Alea and I have been pretty lazy! Laziness is rare for me. Especially after getting done with a thirteen credit load semester and working ten hours a week on-line. I’ve now kicked it up to twenty hours a week, the max I’m allowed, but it still feels like I have SO much downtime. It probably sounds like I’m complaining about this, but it’s just not what I’m used to. When you’re used to every second of everyday being precious time that could be spent studying (gotta keep up those A’s), working (gotta make that dough) or taking care of my home and my daughter and my boyfriend… having NOTHING to do is completely foreign. I need to take the advice of Giovanni from “Eat Pray Love,” and embrace my “dolce far niete” or “the sweetness of doing nothing.” How could something that sounds so simple, be so difficult.
To avoid spending good quality sweetness of doing nothing time, I’m going to make myself lists of little tasks to get done each day of this week along with my new 4hrs-of-work-a-day schedule.
#1 thing you should know about me, I love lists.
