I have just four:
That’s it, no time for anything else, and it’s starting to drive me nuts. Not that I have a choice. I have absolutely no time for anything else, those are the priorities I have chosen, and they consume all of my time. So, that’s it (and even those four are pushing it, with numbers 3 & 4 taking place mostly in the morning before work).
No time for reading, TV, movies, hitting the bars, going to the beach, climbing mountains, rock climbing, sailing, kayaking, spelunking, digging clams, picking berries, flying a kite, dancing in the park, learning photography, calligraphy, ju jitsu or anything else. Just four things.
Looking back it seems there were so many long periods in life with endless time: long, lazy summer vacations, lying in the sun forever beside a river/lake/ocean taking breaks to jump in the water for a while before lying there some more; backpacking on long trips in the mountains, one campsite after another after another; even just hanging out at home bored, day after day, wondering what I could do to pass the time. What I wouldn’t give for some of that spare time now, not to catch up with work, but to get away physically and mentally from this miserable routine.
Moreover, I don’t see my list changing for over a year, which is slightly depressing. Maybe it’s just time for a vacation.
Anyone else had to choose such a limited list of priorities to devote life to at present and have absolutely no time for anything else?
