PSA: Real Life Has Less Free Time Than You Thought

Or maybe I’m still just too sleepy to fully appreciate it…

Hi Gang (quoting from the classic 8 minute Abs Workout Video),

It’s me again. I bet you didn’t think I’d come back. Well. I’m back.

And as you can tell by the title of the post, there’s a reason that I’ve been away so long. Yes, sheer laziness is a part of it, but so are all the things they never told you you had to do when you became an adult that suddenly add up to a lot when you have to do all of them.

Like finding quarters to do laundry so that you can have clean clothes more than once a month… Still on the trail…

Or washing dishes. Or walking to the bus station. Or waiting at the bus station. Or missing your bus because there was a crazy two day detour that you just happened to be in the middle of and then finally downloading Uber even though it scares the crap out of you, but you really don’t want to wait another hour plus you’re a little winded from running after the bus for two blocks and boy you should really get back into shape but who has the time?

My last real post was sort of about embracing the ways that adult life can suck. (Sorry all my friends still in college…) This post I suppose is about finding the time to do all those things that suck while still being yourself somehow.

I love giving advice. Even when it’s crappy. And I’ve been watching too much Scrubs. So here it is: (Feel free to read it in a J.D. voice.)

I guess the thing to remember is to make time for the things that matter to you. Whether that’s scribbling down inane thoughts in your notebook between classes (yeah those don’t stop at college either) or making sure you get that morning cup of coffee, or even writing pitiful pointless entries in your blog. If you don’t find moments to re-establish who you are, you might wake up one morning and realize that a month has gone by. And that’s a month of your life you’ll never get back.

Classic Laura post ends with a downer!

Here it is your moment of puppies and kittens.

  1. Thank you for the joy of reading your thoughts! And for the zen moment of watching the puppies (young adults post college) meet cats (cynics at the beginning but won over by the idealists in the end?)… Love it!
