Idle Time

This is idle time and what could be better
Than a writer's life to live as you please
And a bright, fine day no matter the weather
Time to take some time at your ease
-Jez Lowe & the Bad Pennies

I am coming to terms with the fact that I need to improve my use of time.  Even if I don't find a job, there are plenty of things I could be doing.  I don't know why, but the scene from Clueless keeps popping into my head- when Cher is making over Tai.  She insists on not only improving Tai's hair and makeup, but also her mind and body.
 Tai's Makeover (at 4:40)
  So I think that's what I need: a makeover.  Some time each day for: spiritual (Bible, prayer, theologians); mental (books!); studying (GRE...); work (finding it, literary assisting); physical (essercise); art (photos, design); fun...
Because nothing will make you feel super lame like sleeping through most of the day (especially when they're as pretty as they have been).
Here's to big goals and small steps. Cheers.
