life as a creative

Day in My Life: Valentine’s Edition

Today I woke up at five in the morning and started to go through my emails and English lessons. I have a lot of work to do. I drank hot water which is something that my stomach has been resisting. For breakfast I had a glass of muesli (granola) and yoghurt.

I’ve been scrambling to make enough money this month because a major client of mine decided to go on vacation which meant no money for me🥀. Sigh, life can be so complicated but I suppose that’s part of adulting.

Sleep is for those who are financially stable so even though I was feeling sleepy throughout the day I resisted it and worked on my laptop. I don’t eat heavy things because if I eat a full meal I fall asleep. That means I’m also avoiding coffee because if I drink coffee I feel sleepy, that’s trait of ADHD…a really annoying trait of ADHD. I remember having a tea break during an important meeting and making the mistake of drinking coffee…next thing I had to leave early because I couldn’t stop my eyes closing. I don’t know if anyone else knows what its like to have your body tell you what it’s going to do. I’ve found taking glucose helps a lot more with staying awake…although it initially makes me drowsy but less drowsy than coffee.

I went swimming the other day and I was incredibly aware of how much weight I’ve gained. I call it the Covid-19 kgs. I’m a mésomorphe which means that my body isn’t like super slim but o don’t store that much fat so even though I don’t seem fat…I am fat for my body type. And it’s affecting my health and energy.

I’m at the point where I’m wishing there were more hours in a day. People who preach about balance to people who are working all the time often don’t pay your bills. And bills are a reality of adulting.

I’m reducing how much I eat and possibly getting multivitamins and omega 3 fatty acids…

Honestly there’s not much else I can say happened in my day besides watching Blackish as I worked. Caught up on two seasons…but honestly though…if Dre is supposed to be an ideal black man then the bar is set too low. Rainbow is awesome though…she needs better taste in men though.

That’s pretty much my day. Oh yeah…it was also Valentine’s Day if that’s important….
