Thoughtful Thursday - Time Management

thoughtfulI hear all kinds of crap all the time.

Stuff like, "Don't schedule your blog posts ahead of time."

Why is it crap?

Well, some people say you shouldn't in the off chance that you blog about something that isn't relevant to the news that happened that day. In case something big happens like Trump getting impeached.

Guess what. If something big happens, you can just issue another blog post for that once you've wrapped your head around it rather than being reactionary to everything around you.

Also, just because something big happened in the world, doesn't mean it's something your blog should talk about. I try to focus on being positive, music, martial arts, writing, movies, and the things that relate most directly to them. Yeah, maybe some military coup just happened, but unless I'm going to look at it from a point of view that relates to the rest of the content on my blog, I don't need to jump in on that discussion. If you jump in every time something happens without looking at your blog's content, you dilute what your blog is about and forget who it is for. This isn't a political blog, so I don't often discuss politics at all. If I started constantly posting about Trump, I'd lose readers who care about what I normally write about. I don't need to be saying the same thing that everyone else is.

Busy people schedule their blog posts because it lets them get more done. They get to do more of what they're passionate about. Every second matters and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Maybe their seconds don't matter to them, but yours are up to you and you alone.

I often schedule my posts because my life is full and my to-do list is long. It's one thing out of many that I do to find the extra time to spend with loved ones creating memories.

Do what works for you. It's your blog.

Guid cheerio the nou,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Slumps

Image by Ulrike Mai For quite awhile, I was stuck in nearly every area of my life. I couldn't even think up ways to get unstuck. And I was sleeping terribly, so perhaps there is a connection there. Recently, I became unstuck. I don't know how or why, but lately I see a problem and can think up a work around in seconds. I may not have the energy to execute it, but at least I am getting the ideas for when I do have the energy. Maybe it's because I started a gratitude journal or because I'm beginning to see the light at the end of my renovation tunnel. It could be the hope I've felt since the inauguration happened. Who knows, maybe it's coffee. Speaking of renovations, there has been some slight progress on the bathroom front. They took measurements and will hopefully have materials soon. I don't know when, but hopefully soon. I had a look at the floor I was originally going to get and it wasn't available anymore. The one that was just like it had a pattern
