Goals to simplify and actually get stuff done!

Whew, okay time for a blog overhaul.

First, I got rid of the list of 1001 things that I'd probably never get around to anyway. I also put my crafting lists on the side so I don't have to post dumb to do lists every three days to keep myself straight, same with books.

I'm going to try to get myself down to working on five projects and reading five books at a time, maximum. I need to finish 4 projects in order to get there though! Ah well, it'll get done.

Warning: slightly melodramatic post ahead

This is my craft cabinet. The drawer is also very full and this is only 1 of 4 totally overflowing areas where I keep my supplies. You should see my clothing to remake and my material stash. The lid would literally fly off if I opened it wrong. I find myself highly dissatisfied with my life right now and it's a dissatisfaction of my own making. I have things I should be doing: studying for the GRE, working on my French, and a hundred other practical things that Iknow I need to do, heck, even want to do. I find myself utterly distracted by things that don't matter.

My brain feels like my craft cabinet right now. I feel like I have too much stuff in it. I feel like I'm doing too much, committing to too much, and thereby accomplishing nothing. My problem is that the things that are important keep getting sidetracked by the things that really aren't, or shouldn't be at any rate.

Maybe my dissatisfcation with the state of my crafting stash has more to do with my brain than my stuff.
