Today was a sluggish day. I woke up, and checked my email. My professor emailed the class asking if anyone knew how to add a search bar to a website because one of the groups client’s wanted a search bar, but the cheapest and quickest option they found was for $250 and they didn’t think their client would want to pay that much. So, I thought that would be a fun way to start my day, to find the answer. So I googled it, and found 3 solid options that I emailed out to my class.
After breakfast and a spark (vitamin energy drink), I started to look up different websites and designs to help inspire me for a website I’m building for a clothing line, then I transitioned into doing some CSS homework, went to the gym ( to run), and instead did the elliptical for 30 minutes while reading more of my CSS book, then came home, lazied around, had lunch, helped my sister get something she needed from the internet, then we went on a short run when the sun came out, and I came home and stretched.
That’s it. It was uneventful for me. My sister is home from school for Spring break, so that’s fun. And we’re heading out as a family to my other sister’s house for dinner, and her mother-in-law is here to help prepare for Ne’s baby shower. So that is cool.
The sluggish and uneventfulness got spirred by this belief that I have a lot to do before I leave for the East Coast, and I only have about a week to do it all, a lot of it being web related. I became overwhelmed. Most of my day was filled with web design, and I didn’t get as much done as I had wanted to. I’m setting my expectations too high. I’m starting to get ahead in one of my web design classes, but I still feel behind because I want to get so much done before I take off for my trip.
Part of me feels on track, and part of me feels like my ability to focus is not always on spot.
One of the main things I worked on today was changing my mentality, or doing things anyways, even if I felt unfocused. Today was one of those lesser productive days where the main goal was to just keep on moving, and not necessarily moving walls.
One of the things I kept on imagining was yellow, for light and sun, and occasionally I imagined my cells smiling at me to make me smile. 🙂
Today wasn’t the best energy day, but it was still good. I’m still moving forward in my goals and making progress. And I still have the rest of the day and evening to turn around my energy and enjoy myself with my familiy. 🙂
