Hey everyone!

My time management skills have definitely take a hit whenever I'm out of school. On Tuesday, I thought it was Monday. At least that's not too bad right? A part of me wants to blame my lack of knowing what day it is on my inability to check the date consistently, but it might be because of my lack of interest.

I think I mentioned in a post a long time ago (and I'm talking, a year ago or so) that I have a mental illness. Or maybe I haven't mentioned that on my blog at all, and I was just thinking it instead of writing it. But the cat's out of the bag now. It's been about ten or so years since I've been diagnosed with depression. I might go into more detail about the hows and the whys once I can get around to figuring out how to explain it in simple terms. It's a work in progress.

It's one reason why this blog is falling on the way side lately. Summer makes everything worse as I don't have a strict schedule to adhere to. I end up falling into an unhealthy cycle that I've tried to break. It's not going too well. If I can somehow find the right schedule for me, maybe I can be more productive. It's an "if" though. I have tried numerous apps, but not a single one has helped me.

I have started to make an editorial calendar for the next two months. Here's hoping that it will help me in my endeavor to become a better blogger. There's no such thing as learning too much. Unless it comes to weird topics. And believe me, I have heard some weird things coming out from my teenage brothers' mouths.

What have you been up to this week? Have any tips for time management?


  1. I've been spending the last few days either re-visiting films I've seen before, or watching films I ignored in the past. Sometimes one has a deeper appreciation (and understanding) of things as one gets older. After viewing the Blu-Ray DVD edition of Apocalypse Now (1979), I decided to feed a cinematic Vietnam War hunger. I watched the 2002 film We Were Soldiers which documented the first major clash between American soldiers and North Vietnamese troops in the Ia Drang Valley of South Vietnam. It was remarkably well done, and understandably quite grisly. Next on my Netflix list is another war epic called Hamburger Hill, which I'll probably be consuming on Tuesday. It may take a few days to get all of this war stuff out of my system.

    1. Those movies definitely sound interesting. I never really found myself liking movies that have war as the main theme especially when I'm related to people who had actually participated in them. I'm not sure if my grandfather was in the Vietnam War since my father was born around that time, and my grandfather tends to not go into detail about what he did during the times he did go to war. Maybe in the future (far, far in the future because college is going to take a while), I'll be able to sit down and fully consume any material that involves war. I'm fine with the blood and guts involved in war, but there's something about the general aurora that surrounds it that makes me antsy.
