Day 90: When Will My Life Begin?

Does everyone have “When Will My Life Begin” from Disney’s Tangled stuck in their heads or is it just me?

Seven a.m., the usual morning lineup
Start on the chores and sweep ’till the floor’s all clean
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
Sweep again, and by then it’s like 7:15 And so I’ll read a book
Or maybe two or three
I’ll add a few new paintings to my gallery
I’ll play guitar and knit
And cook and basically
Just wonder when will my life begin?

Yesterday I succeeded in doing all the things I intended to do.

  • 7:00 rise and shine
  • 7:00-8:00 breakfast, coffee, write and publish blog post
  • 8:00-9:00 work out, stretch
  • 9:00-10:00 shower and get dressed
  • 10:00-12:00 study
  • 12:00-1:00 lunch break
  • 12:00-2:00 study
  • 2:00-6:00 clean house
  • 6:00-9:00 watch TV
  • 9:00-9:05 scream with frustration
  • 9:05-10:00 turn off screens, unwind and get ready for bed
  • 10:00 bedtime

It’s a relief to have a clean house again. It definitely had been getting on my nerves that it had gotten so messy and dirty. I understand and forgive myself for not having motivation to deal with it for a while. I do, however, wish I had realized sooner that my lunch container from the day I was laid off (6 weeks ago) was still in the box of things I packed up from my office. That find was… unpleasant.

Today, I shall do that routine again. The specific tasks that I get done between 10-6 will be different and my evening activity might not be the same. Nothing else will vary.

After over 6 weeks of being at home not seeing friends in person much (and not seeing any in the past 3 weeks), I’m only now getting restless.

I don’t know what it is I want or wish I was doing, since in general I tend to be a bit of an introverted homebody anyway. More likely than not, my current restlessness is tied to monthly hormonal fluctuations. I feel out of sorts this week of the month every month.

Yet, it’s only yesterday and today that I can’t stop singing “When Will My Life Begin.”

I think Tangled is available on both Starz and Hulu. I’ll have to block out time for a rewatch sometime soon.

(Eh, shit, the NY Post published an article on this same topic over a week ago. Well, fuck it, I’m publishing my thoughts anyway. Their article can be found here.)
