Things are not going to plan. I shouldn’t really be surprised, this is normal for me. Things hardly ever go to plan. Why? Because I always take on too much, far more than it’s possible to fit into a day, a week, a year.
I am not Superwoman, but somehow my brain thinks I am. It thinks there are 48 hours in a day, so it makes me say “Sure, I can do that, no problem”. It conveniently forgets the trillion other jobs that I’ve said I’ll do. Then, not liking to let people down, I do the stuff that I’ve promised other people and the things that I really want to do, for me, don’t get done. I’m old enough to know better, yet I never learn to say “No, sorry, I haven’t got time to do that”. 😦
I think you can guess what’s coming next.
That’s right, I’m getting nowhere with either the photography course or this blog. These are “me” things so, naturally, I haven’t got time to do them. Okay, I’m exaggerating. A tiny bit does get done, but nowhere near as much as I’d like.
So, the photography course. I’m on lesson 5 and so far no camera work has been required. It’s all been about developing a brand style. This is harder than I expected. I’m probably the world’s least style-conscious woman, and wouldn’t recognise a brand style if it hit me in the face. And I’m supposed to develop a photographic style for my brand??? Oh dear.
The blog is not faring much better. I’ve been playing with the settings, trying to make it look pretty, and failing miserably. I get lost trying to navigate the site. I’ve looked at the help pages. They didn’t help. Other people can do this stuff so it can’t be all that hard. I need to spend time trying to understand how this site works, but there’s a problem. It’s a “me” thing so, naturally, I haven’t got time to do it……
