Things are changing.
I know I’ve been saying that for a little while and nothing has changed yet. Truth of the matter is that I’ve been lazy. I can blame it on being tired or unmotivated, but the simple fact is that I can get away with not doing it because I don’t want to.
Pretty much every night I’ve got out on my bike for a 5mile (or more) ride to hatch Pokémon eggs (and if I don’t get on my bike, I make damn sure that I at least go somewhere I can walk to catch new Pokémon). If I can make myself do that, then why the hell haven’t I done something sooner?
The simple truth is that I’m lazy – I’ve just been denying it.
So how am I going to make the change I’ve so clearly been failing at?
I’m starting a bullet journal.
It’s simple, yet it’s something that fascinates me to no end. I’ve been on Google looking at other people’s bullet journals and, quite frankly, I’ve fallen in love. It combines my need for organization and my love for all things creative, so hopefully I should stick with it this time. I think half the reason that Pokémon Go has been so great for me is because it combined something I frequently put off (exercising) with something I love (Pokémon).
It maybe a little optimistic, especially as this is something that is going to be time consuming to initially set up, but it means I can start to track my habits and reflect on myself.
I don’t know, but at the moment it seems like a good idea. And you won’t know what kind of an impact it has on you until you try.
I’ve also decided that the blog needs to be relooked at. I’m not entirely sure how or what I’ll do, but it needs it. At first I though it would be more like a personal diary where I share my thoughts and feelings (or just general ramblings) everyday, but that has slowly stopped working for myself.
Something I have been doing more frequently is going to the cinema and writing reviews. It was something I never really considered before the blog, and I’m not every good at focusing (or not spoiling the film) but it is fun to reflect on the film. The only bad thing is that I tend to write the review weeks after I watched it. For example, I still have to write up a review for Warcraft which I saw in June (spoiler – it’s rubbish), although I have the notes ready and waiting.
So yeah. I feel like I’m at the point in my life where I need to step up my game. I’m about to take on my responsibilities in September. Not only will I have to run a society, but I’ll basically be in charge of 4 other RA’s, plus I’ll be starting my third and final year at university.
I guess I either sink or swim right now.
