Question: It's complicated

(Answer: What exactly do you do for work?)

Blog friends, I am so incredibly tired. If it were not for the miracle that is paper planning, I would not be able to get anything done let alone maintain my sanity.

My paper planners trying to "play nicely" together. 

Yesterday, I had to take a last minute day off (from my dayjob) so that I could take care of some stuff that I will talk about at some point a lot more openly. On Monday, so... the day before yesterday, I had my planners opened up on my desk (as you see in the picture above) and one of my coworkers passed by and remarked, "Wow! That's colorful!" This is because the way I manage my time and many tasks is by color coding almost everything.

Also? Since I easily work 40+ hours over 6.5 days of any given week... it's pretty common that I might not know what day it is and I wish that I were kidding about that...


Almost all of the planner stickers (and planner "stuff") I use, I also sell from my etsy shop.

Not gonna lie, living at this pace isn't easy and it's also not for everyone. It's for this reason that I do my best to simplify just about every other area of my life so it's as straight forward and easy to manage as possible.

Case in point: my work wardrobe. I try and wear sheath dresses as much as possible because they are all one piece (and, in turn, easy to wear) and they look professional whether I am having to do work in the office or out of the office...

And the work that I do? Overall... I do a little bit of anything that I might have to.

First thing this morning, I had to do some graphic and visual design stuff for some IT stuff I have been dealing with for the last few weeks. Last week I had to do some filming and video production for some internal professional development. Later this week, I might be doing some corporate event planning for some community fundraising. At the end of the week, there is an internal training session at a local work site for professional development purposes. And all of this is in addition to me being a mom to my favorite student...

Pardon the subpar lighting. We were touring a historic location and I was trying to respect the no flash photography rules.

So... this is all (and maybe a little more that I will share at some point or another) is where I have been if/when I am not here on this blog. 

Thanks for being patient with me and the fact that I have a whole lot going on. ;)
