Playing Catchup

My days off go so fast. I forgot what that had felt like. My days are split, which is kind of nice, but I hardly see my family at all. I pretty much see them two days a week, and maybe a little after work each night. That part sucks.

But, I like what I’m doing, and I realize that I won’t always work this much. I aspire to start my own nonprofit to help people. That will take some time, as I have no idea where to start. I’m in no hurry either, because I understand it will be a process, and right now, I’m still learning.

We all start somewhere, and this collective markets themselves very well and very professionally.

My personal life seems to be blur. I’ve done poorly on keeping up with my blogs and writing in general. This is the first time I’ve been on my computer in a hot minute.

I feel like I don’t know what’s going on in the world, because phones are not allowed in the office. I do squeeze in a little time for social media on my breaks in my hot ass car where I spend the majority of my day.

My car is my office. I have two phones, which make phone calls and navigation easier, not to mention sparing my personal phone’s data plan. My messenger bag and a small box for organization rides shotgun with a small cooler on the floor for water.

Today is my day off, and I don’t really know what to do with myself. We’ve been modifying the back patio slightly, and I have been remodeling the bat-cave as well. But it’s too hot to do anything out back in the day time.

I’ll probably pick up a new laptop today, which will be awesome. I’ve gone without one for awhile now, and I’ve missed it everyday since. I’m going to fix up the old one for the lady of the house. It just needs a new hard drive, after I can get the remaining stripped screw from the back plate.

That new MacBook Pro is sexy and I can’t wait to get my hands on her. Plus she’ll come in handy with my brewing inspiration and ideas that could be a future.

This job has helped with my depression–a lot. Keeping busy and helping others in need has done wonders and has kept me in a good mood most of the time. Just like any workplace, there are elements that I don’t enjoy, but like any other workplace, I tolerate them and mind my own business. So, it’s not so bad.

Every person that started their own business had to start somewhere and it requires hard work. These are the thoughts I settle on when I dread long shifts and days that far outweigh the R&R. But that’s life, right?

When my days off roll around, it’s hard to get everything done. I feel like I’m always playing catch up.

One thought on “Playing Catchup

  1. What I’ve done, when I worked and felt like my days off went in a blur and didn’t really have r&r, is to ask myself “what can’t wait until tomorrow?” That lighten the load on both days. I know that not everyone can do that, but it worked for me. It helped me spread things out for the week and reduced stress.
    Love you
