On time.

[Random photo from the wedding we went to this weekend...never a dull moment with this guy] 

If you know me personally, you know that this post will most likely having nothing to do with being "on time," because I'm never on time. Unless it's class, work, or a wedding, I'm almost always 5-10 minutes late to everything. I've actually had a friend tell me that something was scheduled an hour earlier just so I would show up on time. Embarrassing.

We've all heard the saying, "you have just as many hours in the day as Beyonce." While I'm more of a Taylor Swift kinda girl myself, I couldn't agree (is that the right verb?) with this statement more. Having said that, I'm guilty of acting like I "don't have time" for things. Between classes, working, and racking up observation hours, it isn't entirely untrue. However, I could do a much better job at prioritizing my time. For example, I couldn't begin to tell you how many times I've come home from class or work with the intention to accomplish "all the things!" and you know what I end up doing? Sprawling out on the couch, scrolling through Instagram, watching House Hunters reruns and doing a whole lot of absolutely nothing.

If I had all the time in the world, or even if I just prioritized my time a little better, this is what I would do:

-- Make my bed every single morning, throw pillows and all.
-- Bring the dogs to the bark park every morning with a hot cup of tea...who am I kidding, I can't navigate those boneheads whilst carrying a hot drink.
-- Write in my personal journal. Sometimes, you just can't put all of your thoughts and feelings and ideas and worries on the internet, ya know?
-- Fill out my "one line a day" journal. This should be way easier than I make it out to be.
-- Finish a rough draft of my letter of intent for grad school. Because it's my future and all. No big deal, though.
-- Bake a new recipe every week...and maybe even create my own! How do food bloggers know exactly how many eggs/how much baking soda/how much of anything off the top of their heads?! HOW.
-- Get some air in my bike tires and find a trail. Especially now that Tampa's weather is cooperating.
-- Go somewhere solely for the sake of taking photos with my Nikon. 
-- Work out five times a week and meal prep healthy meals. THIS. All of this. The healthy lifestyle needs to make a comeback ASAP.
-- Read read read. Maybe this one has less to do with time and more to do with the books I'm reading? I'm more than halfway through Paper Towns by John Green and I feel like it is just soooo booooring.

I could say I'm going to make more of a conscious effort to do all these things but I like to keep it real around here, and I'd be lying if I said that was the case. Sometimes life gets in the way, and maybe that's an excuse. Okay, it completely is. With that being said, I'm challenging myself to make my bed every day this week! Little steps, right?

What would you do if you had all the time in the world? (Realistically speaking, of course. In fantasy land, I would obviously travel everywhere...EVERYWHERE).
