Feeling profesh. Lots of big ideas brewing in my head, lots of energy to keep making it happen! My secret is a 4 p.m. decaf latte - just enough to power me through the night.
I've been reading a lot about routines, my favorite read being this Daily Routines blog detailing the lives of writers and other creatives. There's a lot to be said for a routine helping you with creativity and creating in general. My weekday routine goes something like this:
7am: wake up, check email on my phone while in bed, shower & get ready for work, answer any emails/post tweets about new blog posts
9am-6pm: work at in-house design team day job
7pm: get home, feed pets, walk dogs, pick up groceries, help make dinner, eat it while watching tv
8:30pm-2am: work on client projects, daily drawing, personal projects, emails, blogging, etc.
Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat. Oh, except usually Friday nights when I'm usually passed out on the couch by 9pm. Somewhere in my daily routine I'd like to squeeze in things like working out and reading for fun again, but I'm not quite sure where...I mean, sincerely, life is about balance, right?
