As many of you know, becoming an adult is about one of the worst you could do. But here we are, at our late teens and early twenties, making our struggles through life. I did have a little bit of success, which you can read here. For me personally, I have many responsibilties. I always thought I was pretty good at giving the right amount of attention to each task, but lately it seems my attention span has been getting shorter and shorter.
Sometimes I think about my mom. She goes to school, goes to work, handles us, and a thousand things I don’t even know about. If she can keep track of so much, then surely I can remember the stuff I have to do.
A new thing I’ve been doing is scheduling my weeks by dates, and writing down every single task I have to do that week. Here’s a screenshot:
So here I have Monday through Sunday. Seeing as today is Friday, I’ve already finished a lot of the stuff I had to this weekend. I’ve also started a new system where I print out a paper calendar, and write down significant events.
I have 2017 print out so far. And have as many important things written down as I can. But if I’m being for real with you, it is not enough.
I don’t know what to do guys. But as a grown up, you have to keep track of your days. If anybody has any ideas please let me know.
Let this post serve as a reminder that nobody has all their stuff together. Everybody is struggling with something, whether it’s school, work, family, time, or money. We all have our stresses, especially as a young adult. And I don’t know about you, but I always hear “you’re so young; what do you have to worry about?” And honestly, all of us have stuff to worry about.
I think the main reason why I have such a hard time keeping everything in order is because I have so many new plans. I have a lot planned out for the next few months, including things for this blog. It’s an extremely busy but exciting time right now, which is what our late teens and early twenties are andll about! Don’t get too down on yourself if you don’t have it all figured out. None of us do.
