Newsflash: I Crave Structure

Ok so.. for someone in the world, working part time from home is dream come true.  Forgive me for sounding ungrateful, but I’m not that person.  I like to busy, frantic even.  I’m only working collectively, say 15-20 hours per week, and since I only have one class and my thesis is plugging along, well…I have too much time on my hands.

Frankly, all this free time is making me feel a little listless.

Frankenstein wishes he was busy too

So I’ve decided, if a job & school won’t do it, I’m going to have to schedule myself within an inch of my life.  Because let’s be real, if I have four hours to write a blog post, go for a run, take a shower and write a press release it ain’t gonna happen…buuut, if I have 30 mins to write a blog post, 1 hour to go for a run, 30 mins to get dressed and showered and an hour to write a press release, I’ll also manage to write a chapter of my Master’s thesis & knock out some strength training in those four hours.  I just need to be structured.

This is totally normal, right?
So part one of this plan is to get up at the same time everyday and workout as if I were super busy.  Morning runs and workouts are coming back folks.  I’ll let you know how it goes!
