Most of my good ideas come to me when I'm in the shower. Not very convenient. It's like a black hole for me- I leave the room and enter back into life and forget everything that I was contemplating while bathing. As usual I have a million ideas, projects, hopes, desires, commitments, etc. floating around into my head on a daily basis. Maybe the shower is just the only uninterrupted, undistracted time I have where I can process some of those thoughts. Anyone else have this problem? I'd love to hear any solutions for this.
Anyways, I just got out of the shower and raced to the computer to get this particular thing down and into immediate effect because I was so worried that I'd forget it otherwise (I've also got a post-shower first sentence bouncing around in my head for a potential manuscript about which I've been feeling the tug on my heart for a while now- more on that in the near future).
To make a long post short, let me just say that I realized that I have so many important things that need to get done- various levels of importance, of course- and yet I get so distracted by little daily things, that my to-do list has some long-standing occupants taking up space that I'd like to finally get rid of.
So, I'm taking a break. A fast if you will. From blogging, and more importantly my google reader (gasp! the horror!) until I finish up a few important things. It's all in the name of productivity and priorities.
This is good timing (must be because these shower thoughts often seem to come straight from the Holy Spirit and His timing is perfect!). Our new lease starts this month and we move back into our own place to live after almost 10 months of crashing my parents' house this weekend!! We're moving to a city just across the county from where I grew up, a city I've dreamed about and visited for coffee dates and surf days with girlfriends since high school.
I feel like it's a good time for a fresh start for me. Must be the new home and the eternal student in me needing a new project of sorts as summer ends and I feel the sudden urge to buy school supplies (bouquets of sharpened pencils and all that).
I'm thinking my fast will last a week or two or maybe a month at most. I may allow myself a post a week at most just to give you a little update but it will be purely for the sake of news (and so I don't completely lose you dear readers) ;) and I will otherwise not visit my wordpress dashboard or my reader until I've knocked off a few important things off my list.
I'm off to finish reading the tabs I've got open (I am a crazy tab lady as those who've ever surfed the web on my computer know) and maybe at least get sort of caught up on reading the blogs in my "peeps" category, and then that's it.
See you in a bit, friends (or later today on twitter. or facebook. I'm not that disciplined, you know).
