I’m once again working on writing today. I wish I could say I was getting a lot accomplished, but my brain is just not cooperating with me. I’m doing the thing all high school students do when they’re asked to write a paper: I open up Windows, find the place where I felt off, and promptly get distracted by something else.
It’s a rather willing distraction. Not because I don’t want to get more writing done, but because I feel burnt out before I had begun. A lot of famous authors say that they write about four hours a day. That’s really isn’t a lot of time when you sit down and start cranking out pages, or work on editing, but they also have words of advice cautioning against pushing yourself too far too fast. I think I’m going to take the latter advice and try working later this evening because I just don’t feel like it write now (haha I made a joke).
In other news, I hung with coworkers last night and had a blast. I have to say I work with some pretty cool people.
I even succeeded and got the apartment deep cleaned which hasn’t happened since…well since we moved here if I’m being completely honest with myself. Luckily it’s small, and I don’t have much ground to cover. When we got the place I thought it would be easy to keep clean because it’s so small. In reality, it just makes the disarray more apparent because you can’t really escape from it. That’s what living in an apartment has come down to: try to run away from the laundry so I don’t have to fold it and put it away.
We are also planning on reorganizing the book shelf. The apartment came with this funky bookshelf that has all sorts of mismatched cube things in different sizes. It’s like a game figuring out which book will fit where, but once it’s done I can buy more! That’s super exciting. I haven’t gone book shopping in a while. Or we might get a fish. Not sure which I’ll like better.
I love books, but I have this strange obsession with fish. Seriously, one of my dreams is to own a salt water puffer fish.
Wow, this has turned into a long post. Random musing have abounded on this post.
Anyhow, have a great Saturday!
P.S. Did anyone get the Hamlet reference in the title of this post? Yeah? Cool beans.
