What I'm craving: TIME!

This week at TFC, we're talking about what we are craving and while yes, I definitely could go for some cookies like Wendy ALWAYS, what I'm really craving is time! This is what time is always doing to me:


It's flying by and I don't have nearly enough of it. Between writing books, my new staff writing job for ROOKIE magazine, my teaching job, my bartending job, the emails, the blog entries, and the desire to I dunno see my friends and family every once in a while this is how I feel:



When the clocks went back an hour this weekend on a night that I generally work until 3 am, I was so grateful for that extra hour of sleep. I wish I could have the every day! I thought.

It seems like everything I do takes twice as long as I thought it would so I'm constantly scrambling and going if I had five more minutes, one more hour, gah!!!! And sometimes I'm totally my own worst enemy because I get very distracted and end up trolling the internet instead of writing or trying to multi-task which always ends badly. I keep trying to hammer down a routine that would allow me at the very least on the nights that I don't work to have a few hours with my husband and then an hour to read so that I can keep up better with books like Lauren's which sounds totally amazing. It seems like reading time and social time are always suffering.

Does anybody else struggle with this? Do you have any tips on balance or can we get together an lobby to turn the 24 hour day into a 25 hour day which would shorten the year probably by a few days or a week or something (I can't do that math, or I could but it would take a lot of much-needed time!), but we could take those days out of January since it's an unpleasant month anyway. What do you guys think?

OMG--yes!!! I don't have enough time. How does it go so fast? An hour seems to pass in a minute, especially when I'm reading or writing. *sigh* 28-hour day, anyone?

I totally agree. I can never find time to write my book! I wish that we just didn't ever need to sleep and then I would be good with a 24 hour day lol

Thanks Wendy!

Mary and Sarah, I agree totally. I either need 4 extra hours a day or to not require sleep. I do like sleep though. Dreams are inspiring, but maybe if we only needed 4 hours of sleep to be functional?

I've been reading your blog for a long time, but I think you should stay away from the social commentary as you really don't get it. Stick to the tech stuff.

The movie Tale was created by the team, during which were being far more women than Gentlemen. They decided, that film could well be focused on somewhat ladies. But it was not merely their belief. They researched minor women, who like Inside of Out Games by far the most, and found out, that 11 to 17 ladies tend to be more attuned to expressions and emotions than Other individuals. Here is the primary reason, why the primary character With this cartoon movie is little, 11 several years aged, Female. When small women see, that there is a Lady from the movie, who has the identical age, the like it A lot more. So, we expect, http://insideoutgames77.com/ will be liked very! The funds of Within Out was $one hundred seventy five million, but authors commercialized a great deal more, than that they had used! They may have got $856.one million from sales in all over the world. From that we can comprehend, that this movie appeals to each individual people today, it doesn't subject they might be Lady, or boy, teenager or mature. Those people like Inside of Out Online games far too, not surprisingly. The film has received this kind of an interesting Tale, that non ofit's watchers will keep indifferent soon after observing it. In it we are able to see the inner thoughts, that have received each person.
