The longer I stood there, the longer I had to stand there. It was intricate and exponential. I looked like I was doing nothing, but really I was as busy as a physicist or a politician. I was strategizing my next move. That my next move was always not to move didn’t make it any easier."
- Miranda July, 'Roy Spivey'
In advance of my 35th birthday, I began reflecting on the past year and smiling at a whole lot of good memories, but also realizing (again, and again) that I have a tendency to spend way (way!) too much time 'strategizing my next move'.
In an effort to confront this, I solicited some advice from friends about ways to spend my time over the next year of my life, and then employed my third grade-level art "skills" to make myself some elementary school-style worksheets to track my progress.
Here's to 35!
