butterfly girl : where she goes when she

being busy

It's funny how you don't seem to realise exactly how much stuff you have to do in your life until other people start pointing it out to you. "you're so busy" is a catchcry i seem to hear often; that and "you do so much stuff!" But I never think of what I'm doing as being "so much stuff", but rather, just things that I do because I either enjoy doing (that's ballet, musical theatre, netball, and plays), or because it's a way of life for me (uni, working, Lifeline training). And it's not until people start pointing out that I'm doing a lot more than the average person feels the need to do in a week's timespan that I notice that I don't seem to have a lot of free time, or that I'm not actually quite sure what it is that I'm trying to achieve. Funny how putting a name to things make them seem a lot worse than they actually are. "You're doing so much stuff" almost seems like an insult from certain people.

On that note, today was a nothing day, but in a minute, I'm heading off to the movies with some girls from work. Tomorrow: I MUST finish off that Psych. reading I've been neglecting for sometime. I promised myself that I wouldn't get behind on those textbook notes, but here we are, just 3 weeks into the semester, and already I'm putting it off in favour of doing... well, not much.
