I Am Horribly Limited

"I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited." - Sylvia Plath
The problem with me, is I want to do so much, that I never know where to start, and generally never get anything done. First up, is my blog. There is so much I want to change about my blog, starting with the name, I feel mine is too long. The layout, I want something more clean cut and professional looking but I don't have a clue about HTML and can't afford to pay out hundreds of pounds for someone else to do it for me. I want to improve my photography and learn to be able to use my fancy camera to its full potential  but every time I start to read the users manual I just get lost in a see of words, I wish there was a step by step guide for idiots like me, or better still someone to show me first hand how to use it. I want to change they way and the things I put on my blog, I really enjoy writing lifestyle posts like these but unsure if people actually bother to read them and if they do, whether they enjoy them or not? And because I want to do all of this but unsure where to start, I haven't done anything, including posts which really pains me as I really enjoy blogging.

Next up is time management, and using my time more effectively. I've done the whole working 13 hours a day, 6 days a week to make sure I had a healthy bank balance, but was I happy? No. I recently started a new job back in August and I'm very happy. For once I feel completely safe being myself. I still have days when I feel the fraud police are going to turn up and say they've made a mistake because it feels too good to be true. When gaining this new job, I made sure I negotiated a good work/life balance by only working 33 hours a week spread over four days. By doing this it means I still get time with my boyfriend who lives a forty-five minute drive away. It has also given me the chance to explore other interests in my life. For instance, last Thursday I started a 28 week long course at the Adult Learning Centre in beginners Spanish. I was the youngest person there, but I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people and learning something new, and I can't wait to go back this Thursday. I'm also considering joining my local Slimming World club, I don't necessarily want to lose weight, maybe a few pounds, my main aim is to learning healthy habits, and learn to eating better as I'm a kind of grab-it-and-eat-it girl, and usually regret my decision once I've eaten it. I would also like to set up some sort of blogging routine, but I find it so hard  as I have to be 'in the moment' to blog, which may sound stupid. Maybe someone can point me in the direction of posts about blogging routines, or tips and tricks? That would be amazing. Though, even after all of the above, I still feel like I'm wasting too much of my precious time. Maybe I should look into another hobby, learning an instrument, joining a females sports group, like football or something? I'm unsure. Maybe it'll come to be in the early hours of the morning, when I'm reading one of the hundreds of books I've bought to read, because sleeping wastes time. What do you do to manage times? Have you got any ideas/post on what you do with yours? I'd love to see!
