So… I’ve been gone for 2 weeks. What the heck happened?!
I started my morning radio show 2 weeks ago (tune in 6-9AM from Mondays-Thursdays on JAM88.3), so I kind of totally F-ed up my body clock. I am asleep by 10pm every Monday-Thursday to be able to get up at 4:30AM each morning. My brain is so used up from 6-9AM, because we have to be alert and make sure we’ve got good content for our radio show. It’s not just all dancing to the music until we have to talk again haha. But Candy and I are slowly devising a system so once we get used to it, we’ll be more chill. I sure hope so. Because the plan is to work out at 4:30AM each morning, be at the station by 5:30AM, do online work (write, reply to e-mails, etc) from 9am-12noon and the rest of the afternoon is for events and exploration (a.k.a. dates with Jim).
What happens right now is I go home at 9am and fall asleep or I go straight to a meeting or guesting to promote the Matrix 8-inch Cut-For-Cancer which I will shamelessly promote right now:
And then I’m always off to rehearsals for the second run of No Filter!!! Say hello to No Filter 2.0!
Book your tickets, I’m doing all shows on October 3 & 4 and possibly the October 29 one as well! Will write more about this in the coming days.
I had a very millennial breakdown the other night before I went to sleep, I started crying to Jim because I just always felt so tired. And then I heard what I was saying and I wanted to smack myself on the head because it sounded like an annoying #humblebrag over social media:
UGH I’m so tired and busy, so much stuff is happening in my life… Poor me… Huhuhu
So before I could metaphorically “unfriend and block” myself, I looked at the bigger picture and why I was always feeling tired: I was not delegating my time correctly.
I should always do research a day in advance for our morning show so we’re not draining all our brain juices in the morning. I was also really upset because I was spending a lot less time with Jim and when I do see him, I’m irritable because I’m sleepy.
I had to remind myself that it’s just another week-long stretch of promotions and busy activities until the Matrix 8-inch Cut-For-Cancer event on Saturday, September 19! After that, I’ll have more time for rest and recreation.
Plus, I have to make the most out of my time with Jim.. I know we like playing video games and watching series but I don’t think it’s time well spent if we’ve only got a few hours to talk before I pass out. Dinner dates are a must for better conversation!
So obviously, I’ve got a lot more to get used to when it comes to delegating my time because I just woke up from a 4-hour nap in between radio guestings. Hehe. I was only intending to take an hour-long nap!! How am I sleeping tonight!? I’ll figure that one out. As I will other things. I just want to thank you guys for the support and for understanding.
Have to go run to Magic 89.9 now to guest on Boys Night Out! Hope you can tune in!! MITH YEWWWW, BLOG!!!
