It’s 1 A.M., and I just realized that I did not step foot outside of my apartment today – errr, yesterday I guess you can say. Then I realized, I actually do that a lot.
I’m a hermit. I’ve literally been glued to my laptop since 10 A.M., with the exception of a shower and when I was eating because I have a sick obsession for my career. If I’m not doing something career-related, I’m either eating, at the gym or watching NetFlix – it’s very rare to find me doing anything else.
I’ve been this way for awhile, but it’s more intense now than ever because of new projects coming up – and with that, comes a lot of things that need to be done. The way I keep track of that is making a list everyday (to-do list, goal list, etc.), and I can’t stop thinking about it until it’s all crossed off/completed.
I look at these lists as stairs. When I get one thing done, I get to move up to the next step and so on, that I don’t have the patience to wait because all I see is the end result, which I’m so eager to reach. I try to stop myself and relax a bit, but the second my mind is not focused on one thing, it naturally goes back to what needs to be done. When I say that out loud, I kind of sound like a crazy person lol. I think I have OCD, but it’s for a good thing.. right?
Anyway, I’m still trying to find the balance between career and personal, but getting better at it! Hoping to get it down by March, but we’ll see what happens.
