Too much to do

Success in life is a matter not so much of talent or opportunity as of concentration and perseverance. – C. W. Wendte          

Today I woke up feeling like I could lie in bed forever, but here’s why I can’t. 

  • I’ve still to unpack from Paris. I am the world’s laziest traveller. Most of the time, everything ends up back in the laundry basket so I can have a few more days of doing nothing. But this time I’ve to unpack so I can repack to return to Northern Ireland. Great…
  • I need to wash my hair. It hasn’t been washed since Wednesday night and looks a state right now, so I’ve tied it up in the hope I can leave it until tomorrow.
  • My Paris blog post needs to be written. Except I’m waiting until my external hard drive arrives so I can save all my photos to it before writing the post. 
  • I need to start packing for going home. Normally packing takes me 3 weeks, now I’ve to condense it to 2 days!
  • Dinner needs cooked at some stage…
  • My bedroom is a mess and the kitchen needs sorted
  • I’ve too much food and no idea if it’ll freeze or not.
  • Shopping needs done since I’ve got parts of meals but not actual meals

And probably so much more that I can’t think of right now! The first step will be getting out of bed. Wish me luck!

Late night ponderings


Before I start, I just wanted to direct you towards my Twitter account (@kvburton657) where I am a lot more active at the minute, just in case any of you are missing me and wanting more of my ramblings! But yes, on with the post.

Once again I’m still awake in the early hours of the morning even though I promised myself an early night. Does it ever happen with you? Dinner was over before 8, I’d planned a movie night with friends and hoped to be in bed and asleep by midnight. Instead it was 12:30am when our friend left and I’m still awake. So here I am!
How do you get to sleep on those nights when it just seems impossible? Reading used to be my cure, however recently it hasn’t helped at all. Mary likes to fall asleep watching a film, but to me that seems impractical – you end up missing the film! Jason uses music, something I occasionally do but a lot of the time it makes things worse. I know the golden rule is to eat earlier and stay off my phone or away from screens but I’m a 20 year old student – these aren’t really options.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
