Archives for posts with tag: time management

We all have those moments. Those things that we say to someone, but we never do it ourselves. Just like the saying “try taking your own advice”.

I went all M.I.A on my poor little blog because school started, even though I had SO many blog post ideas running through my head! I now hang my head in shame.

I’ve always been one for time management, but I feel like I have no time to even BREATHE anymore! WHAAAAT!? I now live on the bus, which is QUITE sad. 

Inbetween classes, eating, no sleeping, schoolwork, readings (which don’t get done), assignments, buying books (every student does this and pretty much signs their death personally, grr!), I feel like I don’t even see my family much anymore, I don’t get to take some time to look nice for school nor keep up with people as much as I’d like to!

I STILL am not done my 30 day fashion challenge! Am I bad at this or what? -__-

HOWEVER!

I AM going to finish that challenge AND I AM going to blog, hopefully weekly, but it’ll be at odd hours.

What do you preach but never do yourself?

The hour is upon us! They (Kevin Kubota, aka the dude from framedshow) from the YouTube channel Framedshow basically said there’s certain times where we are at our peak, where we are most inspired.

Unfortunately for me, that happens to be night time … like, the middle of the night, 4am, middle of the night. It’s tiring, but when I’m going, NOTHING stops me. When do you think I wrote this post along with pretty much all of my other ones? That’s right, 3:30am! Because who needs sleep these days, right? PSH. Anyways, when I mean inspired, I mean, I’m trying on different outfits, creating new projects, editing videos and photos, thinking of blog posts and who knows what else! I’m most inspired at this time probably because no one’s awake to bother me and I can surf on the net and go through my books for loads of photos and inspirations with that warm cup of milk while being super comfy in bed~

I specifically remember so many nights I’ve woken up , or forced myself to wake up just to write down a line, a word, a statement or an idea because so many times I tell myself “I’ll remember, I’ll remember” .. of course to forget in the morning!

When are you most creative or active in the day? Remember, never do regular tasks in your golden hours!

  • It feels like a lifetime since I last blogged! Whoaaaaaa nelly!
  • I haven’t been keeping up with my fashion challenge OR my YouTube challenge
  • Why am I so unmotivated lately?!
  • I have a million posts that I wanna write … why haven’t I gotten on that?! BAD DANA!
  • I’M SORRY WORDPRESS, I AM! BUT I STILL KEEP UP WITH OTHER PEOPLES BLOGS; READING THEM ALL THE TIME!

Besides’ all of those pointless things I just mentioned, I wanted to ask something!

When I get a notification for a new follower (which makes me literally squeal and bounce around in sheer happiness like a dork), am I the ONLY one who actually goes through THEIR blog, read all the posts, like and comment and follow back?

I can’t REALLY be the ONLY one who does this … right … ? I feel like it’s a good way to be a ‘loyal’ blogger (my failed logic)

If there’s one thing I’ve been doing this summer is BEING OCCUPIED.  Doing something, rather than nothing.

I’ve always been one to say, there should always be at LEAST one highlight in your day, every day. Even if it’s THE most simplest thing ever.

I try to do something every day, whether it’s cleaning, drawing, ect. Some of the things I have done so far ranged from:

  • making a blog! (finally something that uses my computer time effectively!)
  • making a nacho sauce (looked weird but tasted good!)
  • creating an OOTD video spontaneously
  • take photos all day
  • research a specific topic
  • read as much in one day
  • create outfits
  • create personal projects
  • started making up designs to revamp my room
  • clean/Organize my room/workspace

Sure I try to go out with my friends, see family or go out to dinners in between my work schedule, but it’s nice to dedicate some sort of “thing” per day. I feel more accomplished and it feels like I’m dedicating myself to something new every day.

I feel like I’m much better now at motivating myself to get up and do stuff compared to a few years back where I would clean my room at a snails pace because my mother made me.

Thinking back on a lot of my previous summers when I wasn’t working, I really wasted them! I would literally be on the computer ALL DAY.

I relied on my mom when she had her vacation time because she was always motivated to be doing something no matter what! She hated the idea of any of her vacation time being wasted by being in the house, and I love her for that! I can see that she’s really rubbed off on me!

HAPPY SUMMER!
