 I am also a little obsessed with routines, and trying to tweak my own for the better. but i love knowing how other creatives work, how they get everything into a day. recently i've been feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the projects i want to take on, combined with wanting to maintain friendships and a relationship. it's actually turned me into a giant stress ball and i felt like every aspect got half assed this week. i figured that its no way to live or get things done so i've resolved to taking 2 nights out of the week as work/personal nights, no making plans. I have to think of it as i have to work late therefore i cannot just say yes to anything coming along. because that really is what my problem is, even when i have work i need to get done, if i get a call or a text asking if i want to go out that night, i will almost always say yes, not because i like going out particularly, but because i love hanging out with my friends and or boyfriend.

figuring out the right work and life balance has been a goal for a while (because i seriously seem to have a hard time with it i guess) so i am hopeful that this next step will work out.

happy saturday!
