How Do I Fit It All In? Six-Month Roundup

A few months ago, tired of people going “How do you fit it all in?!”, I started a blog series to answer that exact question. It was partly for other people but also partly for me; I wasn’t sure how I fitted it all in either. The answer used to be “I barely sleep” but these days I’m often in bed by 8pm, sometimes significantly earlier, so I knew it wasn’t that.

But apparently I still manage to live many lives and do loads of things. So how do I do it? This week marks week 21 of my ‘How Do You Fit It All In?’ series so I thought I’d go back through them and work out if there’s a direct answer to that question.  Continue reading “How Do I Fit It All In?

Apparently I am incapable of moderation, and also I can stretch time?

This does not come as a great surprise. A couple of weeks ago I looked at my growing to-do list, decided to be sensible, and said I’d be scaling back the blog to 2-3 posts per week.

However there’s this maxim that goes: “If you want something done, give it to a busy person” and I’ve realised I might be the human embodiment of it. Because the less I have to do, the less productive I am with any of it. Jobs take me hours, my house is a mess, etc. Give me more, though, and suddenly I’m a productivity machine.  Continue reading “Apparently I am incapable of moderation, and also I can stretch time?”

“How Do You Fit It All In?” Like This.

People have always asked me how I manage to fit all the various things I do into my life. In the past, the answer was that I was a workaholic who could get by on four hours’ sleep a night.

Nowadays, however, I’m in my late twenties, and while that means I’m still young (right? RIGHT?!), it also means I’ve started making those little noises when I get out of chairs or bend to pick something up, and also that going to bed at a reasonable hour instead of stumbling drunkenly through the streets of Dalston at 3am seems like a perfectly good nighttime pursuit.
