Keep On Keeping On01.25.2011
Do you ever have those weeks that seem to go on FOREVER? Well, this week is one of those weeks. For some reason I seem to have had a million-and-a-half things going on. IÂve been going to meetings and meetings and class and meetingsÂ did I mention meetings? Oh, yeah, and class. And outside of all of those things IÂve been sending e-mails and preparing for the meetings and doing homework. Yikes! IÂll be super glad to see 2:50 on Friday, thatÂs for sure.
But even then, I still have to do laundry. IÂve only been back on campus for a week and a half, but I have so much laundry to do and I donÂt even know how that happened! ItÂs literally spilling out of my hamper and into my closet. Sorry, roommate! But no worries. IÂll get it under control eventually. Hopefully.
My schedule seems to go in crazy waves like this. IÂll have nothing going on, and then all of the suddenÂ BAM! Everything at once. But, IÂm not the only one. IÂve come to realize this is a fact of college life and just life in general and IÂm starting to get used to it. This is the point when my obsessive organizing comes in handy. Color-coding and list-making are definitely beneficial. And without my planner/agenda I would probably have heart failure because I wouldnÂt remember anything. So, thank goodness for my planner and post-it notes.
DonÂt worry, friends, this period of heightened stress will pass as it always does. And until then, IÂm going to just keep on keeping on.
