Time keeps on slipping into the future
I have always been excellent at time management, but suddenly working full time, with a 2 hour-ish commute (round trip), has made me unable to gauge even the passage of an hour. At work, I'll be certain that I will have spent an hour working on a project that I estimated would take 40 minutes, and when I check a clock, only 20 minutes have passed. Then, a conversation which I think took maybe 15 minutes will actually have lasted an hour. While I never find myself staring at the clock willing time to move faster (except waiting for the bus), I just can't seem to regain my control of time and use it effectively. The nice thing? It's neutral challenge week, so it's that much easier (and that much less time) to come up with outfits!
