Sometimes I feel desperate to be anywhere than where I am. I have so many goals and it can be hard to realize that the journey is part of the magic.
I suspect I'm not alone in this feeling, especially since the pandemic.
I'm currently working through the second half of my office reno. The wall paint is done. I really want to be on the other side where it's how I want it to be.
I often feel the same way about skating, music, getting a pet, having a partner, and my first novel. Pretty much anything I undertake really.
Speaking of the novel, I'm on a brief pause while I finish my office as it's my workspace. Onto prepping for painting the trim Thursday and then hopefully hanging the wallpaper by Saturday. Once that's done, I can complete the reorg and spend the weekend editing. I had hoped to be a little further along, but when you live in a 520 sq ft condo and have to move things out of a part of it, it becomes rather like Tetris meets Jenga and it took a bit to figure out where to put things in the short-term.
It'll still be much faster than that other reno project has been.
This is something I'm aiming for on home projects going forward, which is smaller projects that can be done quicker. It improves my environment without disrupting my life for extended periods of time.
All right, "just" my writing reference books to move and then I can wipe the trim down, so it's ready for painting tomorrow.
