Do you ever sit back and look at things whilst you’re doing simple things like cutting out a PDF pattern?
I have just had two of the craziest weeks of my life. They’ve been far from fun. I can’t really explain just how much I’ve done, just how busy I’ve been. My uni course has had a pathology lab exam, and I had four papers due last week. I spent 20+ hours studying for my lab exam, and then I spent fifteen hours in one day sitting at my desk writing two of the four papers. Fifteen hours! I have five days of mandatory classes for my degree- we have to go to 90% otherwise we fail. Then I work all day Saturday and Sunday.
I realise that this kind of pace can only be sustained for so long. Deep down, I know my breaking point is somewhere just in front of me. But I love my degree, and I love my partner, and so to make this work, this is what I have to do. There are dishes I have to do, and there’s washing that needs hanging up, but for half an hour, cutting out a pattern seems like exactly what I should be doing. I have another exam on Wednesday, and another paper due on Friday, but for now, this is what I’m doing. Sometimes you just need to sit still.
