Man, Bootstack Joe’s purple eyes really pop on this page, or at least they do to me. Ryota Nichiren is ready to drop out of this mission. His thirst for revenge seems to be tapering off…
So, I wrote this really well broken down schedule for myself coming into 2018. It neatly organizes my writing time, my reading time, time for exercise, my bar schedule, my sleep schedule, and my time spent with #Squirrel. For me, this was the first step to making this change in jobs pay off.
Needless to say, I have spent not one day sticking to that schedule.
Part of that has been out of my control; the very first day of 2018 brought with it a health crisis that #Squirrel and I have been dealing with ever since. Nothing life-threatening, but it’s time-consuming and stressful. We have a surgery scheduled on the 29th, with another to follow at an unspecified date; I think we can realistically hope to be on the other side of this by end of spring. #sigh
That said, I pulled out that schedule this weekend, spruced it up, and I’m planning to unveil it for myself on Tuesday. (Mondays are going to be weird for the foreseeable future, and this after I finally got Monday bar inventories out of my life.) Because the truth is, working from home has been the best thing I could have ever done. If this issue had come up while I was still a restaurant manager, #Squirrel and I would be [REDACTED].
So the plan is more important than ever, even as it’s that much harder to pull off. Ain’t THAT a bitch.
