Time flies when you’re having fun but even when you’re not. Just like that, March was over and one-fourth of the year has passed. So what have I been up to of late and how did I fare with the goals I’ve set up for myself. Three words: not so good.
Perhaps I have set myself up for failure for trying to work on three habits all at once. The common advice is to focus on one per month, building up on others that have become second nature by then. Definitely sound but, at the same time, I feel like I’ll be wasting time not doing those now anyway. I guess I’ll just have to learn to persevere.
The hardest part about these habits is that two out of three, writing and drawing, can really be affected by mood and inspiration. The point is to make them, well, a habit but just “showing up” when you’re down in the dumps or even lower. Even worse when you don’t know what to do or how to move forward.
The biggest highlight last quarter is getting hired to work on some part of KDE, particularly the documentation. It’s not the coding I’ve always dreamed of but getting paid to work on something you’ve been passionate about for years is a dream come true. Sadly, it’s just a three-month gig. More on the details on another post.
This quarter also marks the end of my formal BuJo journey (BuJoJo?). I’ve given it a good try but, sadly, I could never really make it work for me. I’m taking the hard-earned lessons with me and applying it to some semblance of a system that will revolve around the Rocketbook Everlast and digital tools. We’ll see how it goes.
Here’s to being an April Fool and to the next three months ahead!
