I don’t have time
to do this and that
I have to study
But I read too slow
so studying takes
all of my time.
to speed read
Speed reading reduces retention.
It’s just skimming.
Tai Lopez doesn’t read a book a day
he just skims.
Looks like reading faster takes practice
like any other skill
The only way to speed up is
to read a lot
of difficult texts.
Which means I have months
maybe years of slow reading ahead.
At least I don’t have to worry
about trying to read faster
I read university textbooks
It will happen on it’s own
So, class, studying, and on top of that
I want to maintain this blog
It’s my longest lasting project
I wouldn’t have worked so hard
If it meant nothing.
I guess I have no objections
At the moment.
But if I’m reading
all the time then
There is no free time.
Write into the night.
write into your sleep!
I of all people should know that when I don’t get enough sleep, I read slower, retention drops further, I can’t focus in class. That means studying cuts into, or erases, time for the blog, or the quality of the blog.
I was wrong, I need sleep.
Otherwise I get like that.
But then what?
I’ll figure everything out with
time management using
Then I can see what’s going on
and make room for everything
Oh look, the agenda’s full.
Now I have actual proof
that there’s no time.
I don’t know what to do about this.
Uhhg. You know this part of the mind
doesn’t like doing actual work,
Why not put the blog into the agenda.
If it’s important, it should hold
equal footing with anything else.
Man I’m so smart
Yes I am.
Wait, if it was full before
I still have to make room.
By dropping something.
No no, it’s cool look
I had full days dedicated to things
that only take maybe half a day
I need to get used to this
I’ll have to adjust to managing time
I have time to do something else
after I’m done the first task
Instead of slacking.
My time has been getting choked off by a lot of things. I’m travelling this weekend, and I don’t know how that will go. Then I have a couple of essays to work on next week. On top of readings.
But, despite the drop from daily to a sort of bi-weekly posting schedule, I have managed to maintain this blog, so, hopefully I can keep it up during the next two weeks… and then into exams come December.
Anyway, for those following the Solune Prince, I have started the next chapter. I might also make an update post, or maybe a post on plot motivations or something. Either way, that particular narrative is a bit of a mess and fixing will take quite a bit of work. For now, it goes on as it is.
Although I have been outline and planning scenes and even acts since I started putting names in the titles (Act II, Scene xi), so at least I’m not just blind-writing like was the case with Evidence. (Kind of scared to go back and edit that one to be honest.)
Sometimes I think to cancel it though
But what I’ll learn through the process and by finishing is worth the fight!

I think the reason I’m doing poetry so much is because I’m reading poetry so much :[
