When I’m asked upon returning to work after the weekend what I got up to my standard responses generally include some iteration of “watching tv/movies,” “reading books,” and “trying to take over the world.” I may have stolen the last line from Pinky & the Brain, but it’s none the less a Truth. My schemes aren’t quite so grand as actually conquering the world (do you know how much effort it would be to fix the world’s problems and deal with all the idiots who cause them? More effort than it’s worth at this point), but I’m always scheming to take greater control over another part of my world. Whether it’s working towards perfecting my wardrobe, figuring out how to hang a makeshift canopy for my bedroom re-design, starting to learn German in preparation for a trip, or scouring the internet for the perfect job so that I can afford to do all of the latter it all adds up to making my world a better place. They do say after all that you must know yourself to know others, so likewise shouldn’t that translate to perfecting your own world before tackling the rest? I’m doing my part one weekend at a time, and I’m hoping that some day I can get to the rest of it - goddess knows some things would be vastly improved if I was in charge!
