I realized today how much I have to do. School is going to be relentless until finals are over in the middle of April. Really, about an essay a week, not to mention several tests the same weeks as those essays, and a seemingly impossible biology project that I have to do (this is no 4th grade science fair project, unfortunately)....sprinkled with several other things from the other classes I have.
Now, the purpose of me telling you all that is not because I'm looking for pity. Promise. Most of the time, the busy life that I have is entirely brought on by myself, and I hate it when people tell me they are so busy and it is entirely their fault because they procrastinated everything. I admit, some of the stuff I have I could have started earlier, but for the most part, I'm pretty on top of things....more so than usual. I find myself thinking in all of this madness that I can't wait for April, because then school will be over and I'll get to move back home and not have to worry about school for four months.
But, the real question I have is how can you enjoy your life kind of as you live it, I guess, instead of consistently waiting for a moment where you're not busy? How can I be happy with my life, even in the midst of biology projects and essays on the Himba tribes of Africa and tests? With the stress of school and trying to keep my grades relatively high ("relatively" is the key word there)...how is this possible?
I don't know. Something to ponder, I guess.
