it’s a very dangerous thing to do exactly what you want

You know that feeling you get when there is just too much to do, like a combination of overwhelmed and anxious and in order to deal with this you kind of just shut down a bit?

That’s kind of how I felt this weekend. I have so much to do, but I just could not focus on the important tasks. So I distracted myself by being lazy with friends, and painting.

Although I did plan and book things for my move, it really was not enough. Maybe I need to write a list out, because keeping it in my head is just not working.

Yeah.

  1. Honest to God…I truly feel like that most days. So I’ve consoled myself by deciding that as long as I accomplish one (hopefully major) task a day, I’m o.k. I don’t feel so overwhelmed that way (or like a complete failure as I’d been feeling).

  2. Accomplishing one major task is a good way to look at things. My goal for today is two, but I have hope. :)

  3. Lists are kinda helpful when one has so many things to do, it’s what I had to do at the end of my last two semesters. I put a huge X or highlighting what you’ve done is sort of rewarding.

  4. Yes, it is really rewarding crossing things off. I need to make one this afternoon. I think I’ve been putting it off because I know how much I have to do. ;)

  5. Even the act of making the list is a good start, and keeps things from getting too overwhelming. Hopefully it will keep your brain from screaming TILT and shutting down.

  6. I’m trying, and hopefully things start to move a bit this week. Tomorrow is my list day. :)
