I See a Pattern Emerging…

…and I need to break it now.

Day one: I’ve outlined the readings, completed the written assignments, and I’m actually eager to get to class. I walk into class feeling prepared and confident.

I get home in the afternoon and take care of a few household matters, sit down to prepare for the next day…and discover I’m out of steam. I end up dragging myself through the rest of the evening, barely understanding what I’m reading, praying I’ll just pass out on my book.

Day two: What class is this? That’s due today, too? Crap! I left that on the printer! Quiz? Is she serious?

This is what happened last week, and here it is Tuesday of week two, and I’ve gone and done it again. Monday I was a rock star. Today I’m sitting in the very back trying to figure out how to salvage my shit.

But the fact of the matter is that I’ve got to keep rolling. And I’ve identified the issue early so I can fix it now. Make the appropriate adjustments and keep rolling. Because this semester isn’t going to wait for me to catch up.
