This month has been nothing short of crazy and its only the 10th! I feel like all of 2018 has been crazy but I guess that’s just what happens when you have so many things you are working towards. You just start getting distracted by your distraction of a another distraction.
I kid you not I went to look for my charger, walked into my bedroom and saw my shoe in my bed (thank gawd for dogs am I right) and in the middle of trying to put my shoe up someone messaged me about my business. Well I do want any normal human does and responds back and leaves the room forgetting what they came in there for in the first place. Once I realized I was looking for my charger because my phone died on me in the middle of that text I realized how scatter brained I really was. Whats even funnier to me is that looking back on the past couple of days, my entire week was lived in distractions caused by other distractions.
With how my week is going, I thought it was only appropriate that I share my top 5 distractions with you. For the first distraction, I would say other distractions are my distraction but that doesn’t exactly give you a real idea of what my distractions are.
Sooo, my number one distraction has to be any form of text message, group message, GroupMe or some other nonsense. I am an RA at my university and so I am constantly being texted about one thing or another and it is part of my job description to reply in a timely manner. I also run a couple businesses off my phone and so I am quite literally always on my phone doing one thing or another and its hardly ever just for fun, not that I really mind.
My second distraction would be Poshmark. I sell a lot of items on Poshmark for myself and others. If I have any free second like standing in line for food or at the bank I will share as many items as I can in that time so that they hopefully sell faster. I am also always getting notifications about people liking or commenting on an item so if have to respond to the questions in the comments. I have 2 full storage boxes worth of clothes in my closet to sell and I just want them gone. With that said, if you are in the market for any clothes, here is my Poshmark! I am always open to offers so just let me know.
My third distraction is Instagram, I am working to try and grow my Instagram because I am hoping it can help to bring more traffic to my blog as that is one of my goals this year! I often start checking out what other girls who are in my business are posting and then I’ll get distracted by people comments. I’ll end up spending a good 20 minutes just checking out people’s profiles in the comments and then realize the whole reason I got on there in the first place was A to post a picture (wow shocker) or B, to respond to ta DM.
Before I tell you what the fourth distraction is, I am fully aware that this is fixable, but I am distracted by the messes in my apartment. Like today I was just trying to get my shoes to go to the post office and in the 5 steps it takes to get around my apartment I found myself organizing all of the papers I left on my ottoman from studying last night. It is moments like these that make me believe the people that say a clear space means a clear mind. I also seem to have the hardest tome keeping my place clean because everything doesn’t have a space and in the midst of trying to create a space I wind up making a mess to fix the mess, genius!
My fifth and forever distraction would have to be my dog. He can do something as simple as just look at me in a cute way and I’m goner. He is such a time waster but in the best way possible because its pretty much impossible to be mad when you are petting and kissing a fluffy golden retriever that only wants to make you happy. He also is such a little time-wasting turd when it comes to taking him out to go potty because all he wants to do is go run around and play for hours which unfortunately doesn’t fit in my schedule.
I hope you can at least somewhat relate to my top 5 distractions. I could probably make a top 50 distractions list but I would get distracted writing my distraction list.
I hope you are having an amazing week!
