I am always busy. I'm posting this now because I am about to post again about how damn busy I am. But before just putting the crazybusy stuff out there, I wanted to put this out there:
The social stuff is a priority too.
The social stuff is important, and it is a necessary reprieve, and it energizes me; I'm an extrovert, and so being pedal-to-the-metal busy and then spending the evening on the couch is not what is best in life. What is best in life is getting stuff accomplished then hanging out with friends, whether it's parties or dancing or just dinner out. Heroes (80s dance night) is every Saturday in August, for example, and I shall be sad if I don't get to it. Plus there's restaurant week.
So, yes. That is a prelude to this: August is full of BARCC stuff (volunteer training, speaking engagements, workshops), con stuff (Pi-Con, Arisia planning, StrowlerCon planning), et cetera. It is full of writing and back-to-school.
But I do stuff, I get a reward.
Be my reward. :)
