Uses of Time

What really gets me about the time difference is how much time you spend sleeping but don't even realize it. I'm fifteen hours ahead of Colorado so when I'm pondering bed at 11 PM it is 9 AM for most of you. And when I wake up at 7 then most of you are coming off of work or at home, having put in a full day's work.

It has really made me think about the budgeting of my time and how much of it I waste. One of my resolutions for the new year, thus, is to budget my time a little bit more effectively. Not lounge around and sleep until noon on the weekends; this won't be hard to stop during the week as I'm going to be working at 7:45 AM (as soon as I find a job). I want to make the most of my time, not just waste it away.

So we'll see how long that lasts, I did get up at 8 this morning to come down to the net cafe and hang out, so a good start. Pictures and trip commentary to follow.


  1. Another interesting post. I get weirded out a little by the time zone difference, too. When we're talking via IM or phone it seems completely normal. Then you'll say something about today or tomorrow and I wonder whose today or tomorrow you are referencing. And, do you know what tomorrow brings since you are in my tomorrow? I'm in your yesterday so are you viewing what is happening back here like the Guardians or Forever? Ponder that! ;) Love you. Mom!

  2. Hi Uji, missed you at Caerthe 12th night yesterday. I've added a blog widget on my Tregwernin blog so I can see when you post ;-)

  3. Rosalind here. Many of us have the problem of "wasting" time, and we haven't moved to the other side of the world! One of my resolutions is to accomplish 3 things every day - sometimes large, sometimes small - but, they must be distinctive as accomplishments. So far, I am 0 for 4, but I will overcome.
    Thanks for creating this blog, Uji.

  4. Hey, It's Cory.
    I've been struggling with the time management too. Hopefully we can both reach our goals of conquering that particular issue. I hope you're settling in well and having a good time. Wishing you the best.
