Extreme Productivity and Relaxation

DSC_5583I am working on a theory about to-do lists causing mental illness. My mental illness, anyhow. Without my to-do lists I lie around and read and then freak out about wasting my life. With my to-do lists, I have panic attacks and try to do everything and finish nothing. I haven’t worked out the solution to that one yet.

Anyhow, somehow recently I’ve mashed it all together into a big ball of crazy, where I more or less just walk around wringing my hands and then go check Pinterest. Luckily! this is why I started this blog. I hereby announce a weekend of productivity and purposeful relaxation, and the documenting of my productivity and relaxing. Feel free to join me.
