I am out of tiny old bolts, I’m going to have to keep an eye out for more or age some new ones.

I almost never accept commissions because I have no sense of time.  I can’t tell if 20 minutes or an hour has passed, so often I set a timer for an hour repeatedly while I’m working to remind myself to look at the clock.  There are things I can ask other people, like how long it will take to get somewhere, but I forget to add time for signing in, finding a seat, etc.  To be minimally organized I keep a list of tasks and constantly revise it to move priorities to the top without writing in times or dates.  When I try to estimate what I can get done, say in the two hours before I am going to leave, I am generally way too optimistic, and find myself in the middle of something when I should be walking out the door.  Very frustrating, but I work around it so others don’t have to, and only accept requests from a couple people who know me well.
