It has been one of those weeks… A week that started earlier than a week ago, and that hasn’t ended yet. A week from bizarre world.
I have an intermittent pain on my back and neck thanks to being on a sitting position most part of my days. My eyes turn red because of the so many hours glaring at the computer screen. My sleeping schedule is all messed up… I find myself unable to sleep until it’s close to 4 am.
And at this very moment, when I feel the word busy doesn’t quite cover my situation, a big question is born like yellow to white transformed popcorn in the microwave: Why must I always leave things for last minute?
The truth is, I’ve had a lot of time to work in this project that is now keeping my nerves on edge. There were many times in the past months when I remembered it and still decided to read a book, or watch a movie, or have an evening of talk with someone instead. My project’s advance in one day of this week, was the advance of two solid weeks before.
I decided I had to finish it in order to get it done already and graduate this year. But again, why am I going through this unnecessary stress?
It all goes back to my university times when I still had homework and tests… always at last minute trying to finish everything the night before, with a can of coke (for the caffeine that didn’t have any effect on me), with the sound of roosters at 5 am, with the zombie face due to the lack of sleep, and the sometimes bad results for not having enough time for covering all the studying I had to do.
Oh dear… this is one of the things on my “to change” list. My project is due tomorrow, I’m going to make it; in fact, I’m just writing its final conclusions. Otherwise I wouldn’t be posting here. Or would I?
