I am a busy girl. My days are filled with uni work, homeschooling and music practices. My evenings are filled with choir practices, soccer, and other commitments. Sometimes it seems to be a struggle to find time to do anything else. With all that going on, how could I possibly find time to keep up with blogging, doodle and read? There's no way.
But there is.
I find that I have the most free time over the weekends, and in the evenings before I go out. Blogging goes in those times, with Blogger's lovely scheduling program to get the posts out on the right days at the right time.
Writing goes after dinner, even when I'm tired. It only takes fifteen minutes to punch out 500 words, and there's a funny thing about writing. Once you start, you don't really want to stop.
Doodling is easy to do while listening to someone reading, or watching an education movie. There are always odd minutes while watching something on the stove, or during morning tea.
Obviously it's easy to fit in a few pages of a book here and there. I never need to carve out time for that.
It's easy to say I'm too busy for these things. I could give up on blogging, stop writing, forget about doodling. But it feels so good to get to the end of a day, and know I've made the best use of every minute, got everything done, and kept up with my hobbies as well as work.
There's always time, if you only know how to look for it.
Do you ever find yourself getting so busy with work and study that it's hard to keep up with other things like blogging? Do you have to snatch every moment to make sure things get done? Or do you have the luxury of spare time (I envy you if you do)?
