For some reason I keep putting myself in situations where there’s just always a lot going on. I don’t mean every day feeling like it’s GO GO GO or that I always have this sense of looming deadlines (though, it’s sometimes true). But more that I like to surround myself with a lot of moving parts.
School is just one of those. And there’s a lot of moving parts in that one area of my life. I’ve got 3 exams this week. A short paper due tomorrow. I’ve got my make up stuff (still) to complete. A term project to work on, which I’m pretty excited to start. Lab hours to complete. And what I’m dubbing a secret stealthy student thing that I’ll discuss/reveal once my professor and I get it worked out.
And all those things are good things. School is my happy zone right now. And with everything else in my life not doing so great, between health and mental health… I need this. All these positive moving parts helping get past the not so good moving parts. It’s like a really weird rube goldberg machine.
Sometimes when the positive parts slow down or aren’t as prevalent… that’s when I’ve got to rely on myself to move me forward… or at least provide enough distraction to get through. Which explains why I have 30+ paper airplanes scattered around my home. It also explains this:
