Stretched Thin

I'm getting overwhelmed with all the activities I want to try or really get into here. I guess being repressed for so long is taking its toll, because now that I have the freedom to do anything I want, well, I want to do everything. Here's the list so far:

1. Climbing
2. Knitting
3. Running (I'm thinking of joining a group that's training for the LA marathon. I'm not running the marathon itself of course, but I just want to find out if I can actually do it)
4. Yoga
5. Camping
6. Website design/programming
7. Writing
8. Photography
9. Piano
10. Snowboarding/skiing

God, there's just so much to do, and I'm stretching myself too thin. Take last night, for example. I was all alone at home, and normally, I grab opportunities like that to do yoga, as I don't like people watching me when I do it. I don't mind doing yoga with people, but if they're just on the sidelines, I always feel self-conscious. But then I also needed to put in some knitting time, as my deadline is drawing dangerously close, and I haven't even gotten halfway through the project. So what did I end up doing? Both, but I slept fantastically late, that it's a wonder I was still able to get up and go for my workout this morning.

The good thing about this is that I know I can always find something to do. I know I can always distract myself somehow, if I find myself with some free time. The bad thing is that how will I ever become good at any one thing, if my focus is so divided? Sigh. But I can't seem to decide which ones to give up or put in the back burner first - I like all of them. Boy, I'm greedy when it comes to hobbies.
