Gustave Flaubert said, “Be regular and orderly in your life so that you can be violent and original in your work.”
Today I tried to think about ways to make my life more orderly.
I went to the gym the other day for the first time in two months. Then today I found out that there is an associated gym half a mile from where I work, so I can go right after work on Friday and Saturday. If I go both of the days that I have off, that’s four days a week.
Today I felt less like I had to accomplish anything but getting through the day, because there was a lot to do with the gym and working and eating and cleaning myself, and I think I felt better going through the day like that, not trying to accomplish anything. I think throwing 2015 away before it starts is a really great idea.
I feel like I can be really violent and original in my work now, whatever the hell that means.
I am almost done with Les Miserables. Sweet.
I think next Friday I will try to do the exact same shit I did today, at all the exact same times. That shit will be so orderly.
