Things I Wish I Did That I Do Not

  • Use a planner. Without fail, at the start of every year, I think: I’m gonna buy a planner this year! And I’m gonna fill it with not only all the things I have to do, but all the things that inspire me and all the random notes and thoughts I have that pop up throughout the day. And of course, I’m going to use a variety of colored markers and cute little drawings and I’m going to look back on it the following December and think, wow, what a productive year I had! And without fail, every year I buy one, use it for a couple weeks, and then it gets crumpled up in my bag, tossed on the counter and eventually makes it way to a pile of junk I never look at again.
  • Upload photos in a timely manner. Am I the only one who suddenly, out of the blue, worries that all my photos are going to be lost forever so I make sure to upload them all—and then forget about it until the next time that frantic thought goes through my head? No? Just me, I guess.
  • Organize my Tupperware. Well, this makes me sound straight out of 1962. But this afternoon I was looking for a Tupperware for my salad from lunch and I couldn’t find one top and bottom to match. And then they all fell when I pulled one down from the shelf, just like in a really bad movie about a really disorganized person. It’s a mess. One day it’s going to all be coordinated and organized and it’ll take me one minute to put things away instead of 10.
  • Go to bed when I’m tired. Just like that meme that I can’t seem to find right now (but I did find this one, which is pretty accurate), I’ll sit down on the couch and then 10 minutes later, I’m likely asleep. But instead of getting up off the couch like a normal person and going to bed, I’ll just keep sleeping until I wake up and it’s midnight and I have to drag my tired ass to bed. Then I’ll wind up scrolling through my phone for another half hour and before I know it, it’s 1am and my human alarm clock is going to be up in 5 hours.

 I'm curious: what do you wish you did that you don't?
