What is happening right now is that he's forcing me to write this post. You see, we've been in a bit of a crushy/obsessive/love bubble. In which we stay up 'til 2 am talking, and stick around bed until 2 pm talking and hanging out. Then we go to work late, some of us stay at work late, and some of us don't get our shit done. Seeing how I can get a little distracted from work and really need to focus, we've set up some rules. For the sake of balance, for the sake of productivity, for the sake of sustainability.
We came up with these rules together and they're good, but he's the one forcing me to post them here. For the sake of accountability. I don't like sharing my dirty laundry when it comes to weaknesses that have to do with work. Anything else I'll tell you. You know that. But this is hard.
But here they are. Our new rules.
- Both Mr. Renaissance and I must be out of my house by
109:30 am on weekdays.
- I do not get to open my computer before I get to work.
- I do not get to look at facebook or google reader at work except during lunch.
- If we both do not get
67 good hours of work in Mr. Renaissance does not get to spend the night OR come over.
- Our new bedtime is
midnight11:30. This means the only things we can be doing after midnight11:30 on weekdays is reading or sleeping (you can pretty much bet I'll be the one reading and he'll be the one sleeping).
So there you go. This is what it's like to be an adult around these parts. You know, with jobs and whatnot.
