It's 2013! And what better way kick off the year than by clicking a little red 'x' to close a window on a long-time draft post--of relative emo quality--you've been keeping in MarsEdit, and having said 'window-closing' action send the post to your website instead of simply exiting? Answer: there is no better way.

So here we are.

It's 2013! I'd say things are off to a pretty good start so far. I have continued to write every day. I still have yet to set up that eye appointment. I had two four-day weekends in a row and barely knew what to do with myself. The free time did wonders for me; it's the most well-rested I've been in months.

There's a million things I want to do right now, and like a puppy I want to do them all right now. The downside is that it's hard to focus in such a state, so I'm trying my best to keep it all to a minimum and focus on one thing at a time, one day at a time. Grown-up stuff often seems to get in the way, but I'm working hard to find ways to reduce the time investment for such things. It's happening, just not as quickly as I would like. Unfortunately, patience for my own goals and projects is not something I seem to maintain.

My current project revolves around organization of pretty much everything in my life. Paperwork. Files. Bills. Photos. I yearn for simplicity. And yet, this yearning has complicated things so much more for the time being. Hopefully with a little perseverance, that part will only be temporary.
