The call of a visiting relative turned out to be the last straw in my decision to change something in my usual life.

1 october

I have a truly "wicked morning" today. SMS from my uncle at 7 am: "I will be at the Kievsky railway station on Friday, at 4 pm, come and talk to my next train." Obviously, the answer "I am working at this time" will not only not be accepted, but will also put the final point in communication with relatives. There will be many conversations about how insensitive I became a Muscovite who did not deign to devote time to my uncle. And my uncle, by the way, comes only for the third time in the last six months. If I were immensely happy about this, my parents simply would not leave me alone.

Without getting out of bed, I opened the to-do list for Friday.

Well, think about it, I just crossed out half of Friday because of a meeting with my uncle!

I adjusted the to-do list for Friday, did all the morning chores, drive to work and think:

"Why do I owe everyone aroundI must call a friend, find out how she is doing, I must help my brother with the institute, I must meet with relatives, work, I don’t have time for myself at all, I don’t have time to live”.

I stopped at a traffic light with a huge billboard, which depicts strange green men in active movements with the inscription "How to do everything?" … I got under way, not having time to finish reading, and thought about the little green men. All are the same, as if one was cloned, and now there are a bunch of them, and each is busy with his own business, and one main green man is in time for everything.
