I have this bad habit of leaving things for the last-minute, while expecting them to be perfect at the same. Perfection doesn’t happen three hours before my submission deadline! You’d think I would know this by now …
We’ve received a number of assignments and I’m finding it difficult to manage my time properly. I’m constantly playing Catch Up instead of Keep Up and I’m failing miserably. It feels like I’m slowly sinking, trying desperately to keep myself afloat but the stress of the situation is dragging me down.
Weekends are my lifeline, I desperately look forward to their arrival. But it comes and goes way too quickly, it always leaves me wanting more. My high school teacher’s words are haunting me:
“You have to keep up, always try to be on top of things. Once you fall behind, you’ll spend the rest of your time trying to catch up to the rest of ’em”.
Maybe I’m just being overly dramatic about the entire situation and I just need to relax. But now, I’m just trying not to drown.
“So tell me, tell me, tell me
What am I to do
I think that this life is darker than the view
So help me, help me, help me
Be a little more like you
When everything is falling
I’m gonna do the things you do“
