Post #181: Better plan next year

Sunday, November 3rd, 2013

My birthday party is over, and what a stressful two weeks it was trying to make it work! Really, as fun at the night turned out to be, I’m super relieved that its over. There are only so many lessons that I can learn in one night, if you know what I mean.

I roped two people into the responsibilities of the party, and I didn’t coordinate with them properly. Once they said “sure”, I just slammed the itinerary down, sent it to the guests, and I never discussed it with them. Had I spoken with them prior to doing so, it would have saved me from stressing out so much. I wasted a lot of brain power thinking about how I would get people to move from the house party to the club, and in the end, it never happened. Had I not thrown in that idea, we likely would have put more effort into planning the house party.

But now that that’s done, it’s time to take a serious look at life. I’ve been stressing over work for a good three months, and it’s only getting worse. I think I’ll have to drop most of my social life for the next month just to sort it out… but that’s the cost of gettig older and being bad at planning things!
