Just made it through another nap using my awesome new alarm clock.
I'm feeling fantastic today... not tired at all. The key has been that I have been working all day long. What a great system! It forces me to be productive.
Also, from what I've read it may take 1-2 more weeks until we aren't getting tired at night. I can live with that if I have to. I've also read that working out and general productivity makes it much easier to stay awake at night.
So back in January, I wrote out my 7 goals for the year. It's been two months, so let's see how I'm doing :
1. Become FULLY polyphasic
I'm close on this one. Many days I go perfectly, sometimes if I have nothing to do I oversleep and then skip some naps during the day. I'm actually pretty satisfied with that, as I'm only sleeping 2.5-4.5 hours per night, I'm never tired, and can always count on being awake early and staying up late. I'll keep pressing to be more consistent, but I'm satisfied with where I am.
Okay, so it's not the morning. The late arrival of this blog post is the result of a weekend gone amiss. I wound up going to an outdoor concert/bbq/bonfire on Saturday night and then ventured out for some late night dancing. Finally getting into bed at 4 AM was not conducive to morning blogging. I also had a very busy Sunday, and so, oh well. That's just how it goes. I wanted to share a little bit about what I've been up to. I have various art projects in the works. There is a big knitting project that I've been working on consisting of a bunch of knitted squares that will be sewn together to make a throw blanket. I needed a change of pace from all of the scarves I've been knitting. I've also decided to do some renovation projects around the house. I want to paint some rooms and start infusing more color in my surroundings. All those hours watching HGTV shall not go to waste. Last week, I had painted a design for the shirt I wore at my show at Manifest Discs. I will be painting more t-shirts for myself both for casual wear and performances. I have a bunch of ideas. Lastly, I have been working on a lot of new music. I cannot say for sure where it is all going (though I do have a vague idea in mind). I will be going to back to basics over the next few months. Daily piano practice, exploring other people's music by playing them, and the constant searching and unearthing that songwriting is. I am enjoying this the most because I often surprise myself. I honestly don't know if I'm really any good at this, but I certainly enjoy the heck out of it. Well, this is just a small snippet of what I am up to. I'd rather be doing something interesting and fun than being bored. Have a great week folks! -g
