I don't know how you all do it!
I don't usually need to do a whole lot of intense mental work, aside from paying the bills.
My kiddo has been wanted to take walks somewhere that we can be more immersed in nature. So, I did a lot of research on parks. What's nearby, which ones have fees, what's open despite COVID-19, how the hell do I get to that park, etc. I even looked into camping stuff for summer, in case we're able to. I'm pretty happy with the info I found. I wrote everything neatly on notecards, so I can find it when I need it.
My next task was finding summer activities for my kid, and it broke me! 😆 Art classes are easy to find. I've got that covered. But, he also wants to learn more about coding. There are coding camps that are $1000/wk, and wouldn't even cover what he wants to learn. I burnt out my brain trying to find something. I finally found an online course that seems perfect, and is reasonably priced.
So, just researching and planning fun stuff was so hard. I can't imagine serious studies with this condition. My hat's off to all of you in higher education.
My to-do list was shot to shit after that. Needed multiple naps to recover.
Today's a new day, and I'm getting back on track! 😊
