I’m sure I already mentioned that I procrastinated last weekend. What followed was a week of catching up on papers and studying for tests, in other words, long nights of cramming. It was a “hell week”– I completed one assignment, wanted to rest but right before crashing would realize I had two other assignments/tests, back to back, that I had to catch up on.
The thought that always gets me through a hell week is knowing it will all be over soon. The only good thing about a hell week is that celebrating at the end feels that much better.
After realizing my exhaustion led to one interesting cognitive “slip up” where something really important slipped my mind, I decided to vlog . The video below is me discussing my progress throughout the week.
I hate to trouble you with my problems but I did something really silly this weekend…I procrastinated. Yes, that is right. Instead of writing a paper and studying for an exam I went to a dance performance, a benefit concert, an improve comedy show, and had too much fun with friends. Well all of the above was necessary, at least I think so; everyone needs a little time to unwind here and there, but I probably should have done some work over the weekend to ease my Monday night. Now I am in a study room in the library, of which is pretty cool (the second floor study rooms are new), pulling my hair out as I try to finish a paper for my Feminist Theologies Course on, well, God.
The number one piece of advice I give itty bitty students is to manage time well. Keep that in mind.
