The change of the semesters affects my routine of course. I have different classes (and now different shifts) in the fall, spring and summer. Apparently I don’t work at all in May. I have no idea how people handle work schedules that change weekly–I wouldn’t get anything done and it would drive me crazy.
I know that routines sometimes cause people to fall into a rut–when you feel like you’re doing the exact same thing every day, and like nothing new is coming your way. I don’t really get that with routines, though that may be because they change fairly often, and because my free time tends to vary immensely. Some Wednesdays, I go home and do homework; others, I go out with friends.
I do like to schedule things ahead of time, rather than being fully spontaneous–I don’t drive, and it’s just easier to know stuff like that. I have a tabletop game every Monday, Friday, and Saturday. Tuesdays and Thursdays I don’t get home till late.
At least, that was this semester.
Over the coming weeks, my routine is going to disappear. Just when I’m used to not doing anything noteworthy, I’ll have to grow accustomed to a new schedule (which I don’t know yet and which makes me a little frustrated). Two months after that, I’ll get a new schedule and a new routine once again.
My goal is not just to establish a blogging routine, as I mentioned earlier. I want to try to establish a blogging routine that will remain mostly intact as other parts of my routine change.
Maybe I’ll finally get a regular sleep schedule.
Either way, as the next few weeks pass, I hope to finish up my review of Perfume, write a review for Hex Hall (which I recently listened to), and write a few discussion posts. Maybe I’ll pick up Top 5 Wednesday again.
How do you maintain yours, if you have one?
Thanks for reading and I look
forward to your comments!
