So, work has kind of spiralled out of control again. Unfortunately, I didn't notice that I was taking on two or three "expandable" tasks...the kind where there's a never-ending pile of work to do, a deadline, and no set hours. Which pretty much means that anytime I'm not working on teaching, there are these other huge stacks looming over me.

It makes it hard to set aside time for catching up with friends. It makes it hard to set aside time for playing ukulele or piano or accordion, or sitting quietly, or fixing bicycles, or anything, really.

I'm glad I worked out why I'm feeling so overwhelmed, although I'm still trying to work out what to do about it. So, I guess this is another in my long series of posts saying, "I still like you, sorry I haven't had time to catch up!" Maybe one day I'll get better at this? I hope so! Because I like you, and I'd like to catch up some time!

Expandable tasks are the bane of my existence too, and I never notice they are expandable until they are knocking on my door at midnight shouting drunken abuse at me.

Expandable tasks are jerks like that.

the combinantion of expandable tasks and being a perfectionist is why i can never work in design or advertising. apart from that design and advertising are poopy jobs anyway.

Luckily I am not a perfectionist, at least!
