I’ve felt pretty frustrated at times lately. Not at anyone in particular, although often with myself. Especially when I forgot my SD card AGAIN, but I think I’ve finally learnt a lesson with that one. (She says).
But yes, Lily does love a rant (as people around me know) and is in the mood to hammer it all out on a keyboard right now. Accompanied by a frustrated-looking photo from last weekend’s shoot because lack of daylight is another item on my ‘frustration list’. I’m a positive person usually, promise! Tiredness brings it out in me. And boy I am TIRED today. *Makes self another coffee*
— I’m frustrated by deadlines that I just can’t meet. Specifically, a textiles coursework deadline that we were supposed to hand in this whole unit’s worth of work today in order to begin the next one on Monday, and I just didn’t quite get everything finished. Which I’m annoyed at myself for, because now I’ll be paying catchup, ugh. Really wanted to avoid that one. I haven’t been slacking with work or anything, I’ve just not managed to fit it all in to complete my final piece, journal, personal study, design sheets, etc. etc….
— Frustration isn’t helped by not having chance to go to the gym this week. Endorphins needed.
— I get really frustrated thinking of all the blog changes I want to make, but haven’t the time to. I know how large and hellish a task it can be! Still feel like a refresh and a revamp wouldn’t do any harm though. A while ago I toyed with the idea of switching to a magazine style layout to have a wider variety of posts showing on the homepage, but I ran a poll / discussed it in a twitter chat the other week and the general consensus was that most prefer a traditional blog style anyway. So I’ll not rush to make that switch. However, there are a bunch of other changes I’d like to make. Rehash the categories a little, change my header… many things on the list. I’m well aware of how much of a rabbit hole blog design is though – once you start making one or two tweaks, you can’t help but notice 10 other things to add to the list! I did finally get round to starting a Joli House Facebook page this week though, so here’s a shameless plug if ever there was one. Fancy giving it a like? 😀 😀 😀
— Not waking up when I intended to frustrates the hell out of me. how I manage to turn off so many alarms in my sleep is beyond me. Hate waking up an hour later than I’d planned feeling annoyed at myself.
— I’m feeling frustrated with education, or rather, frustrated with being stuck in timetabled education. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy college and the environment and being around everyone, but I just feel like I’ll work so much better when dictating my own schedule and not wasting hours a day on a bus. I won’t be lazy, I’ll probably get more done and turn into one of those workaholics who just never stops. After 14 years of being in school / college I’m just antsy to be out. How people don’t go insane staying at the same school for sixth form is beyond me! Change = needed.
— Blog ideas are a constant frustration. Somehow those hundreds of titles sitting in my drafts that just don’t seem right. So annoying when a good title doesn’t actually give you good ideas to write about, or would take more hours in the day to prepare for than you physically have.
— My cat keeps swiping for me. Bit of a petty (lol) one I know. No idea what’s come over him lately, but if I so much as move an inch when he’s in the vicinity he sees it as an invitation to ‘play’. By play, I mean scratch. Cheers pal.
— I’m especially frustrated when 2 hours have passed and I don’t feel like I’ve achieved anything but don’t feel like I’ve had a rest either. How?!? Part of me thinks I’m a hard worker, and part of me thinks I’m just such a talented procrastinator I don’t even realise when I’m procrastinating.
OK I’ll stop ranting now and go to bed. Seriously looking forward to this weekend away! I haven’t seen nearly as much of the East coast as I’d like so a little jaunt in Scarborough’s direction should be nice. Completely forgetting about / ignoring the batch of work I have for this weekend would be nice too, but that’s sadly not quite gonna happen, grrr. Sunday night is gonna be SO FUN.
Rightttt I’ll actually stop ranting now. Goodnight!
