I seem to very much have a one-track-mind.
For instance- when I am crocheting, I only want to spend my spare time crocheting. I have a project (the scarf) and by-God, I want to finish that scarf.
Or let's say I'm reading and get very involved in a story/series. I only want to spend my spare time reading.
You would think there would be an easy way for me to juggle what I want to do in my spare time (ie. read, crochet, play the wii, work on my story). Instead, I find myself going whole hog down one way or the other.
I wonder if this is why I seem to flit from hobby to hobby? This week feeding my insatiable lust for books, next week cooking, baking, canning like crazy, then spending a few days working out plot issues, which quickly is abandoned to spend time with my coin collection.
I think I burn myself out too quickly. That may be why the closet is full of half completed crafting projects or tons of crafting supplies. Why my stories have gone unfinished, why I have countless skeins of yarn and why I blow through books like they are going out of style.
Is it too late to make New Years Resolutions? If it is, too bad! I resolve to work on spreading my time around, not concentrating with iron focus on just one thing.
Maybe I can keep from burning out on everything and returning to the trusty old internet to fritter my time away second by second until bed time.
We shall see!
