Re-balancing Life

So, yesterday did not go as planned. I was so exhausted after work, I didn’t have my Chinese class. I realized that I am still doing too much. Working a full day and then having class until 9pm is just not feasible for me.

Instead of staying up late doing homework and trying to get everything done, I started a new book (Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune) and went to bed early. No, I couldn’t fall asleep for a long time. My insomnia got the better of me, but I did relax and try and clear my mind.

Work was good. The high temperature today was 101, so I couldn’t spend as much time as I’d have liked to outside. To keep my spirits up, I am headed to a coffee shop and then getting ramen. I need more scenery than just my desk and my kitchen table.

Progress on my novel/novella has slowed, but that’s okay. I’ve written a lot more in five weeks than I thought I could. If I can finish this within six months I’ll be happy 🙂

I hope your Tuesdays are going well!

Until next time…
