It’s no secret that I have terrible time management skills. Yet, I always get things done on time and I’m early for everything. Or as I like to call it the “the many joys of high functioning anxiety.” Yes, jokes about mental health aren’t funny, but this is my illness so I feel that I have the right to joke about it.
My best friend is visiting next week!!! There are 6 days and some odd hours between now and when we will see each other!!!! Can you tell my all the exclamation marks that I am excited?!?! It’s been a very long flourish years since we’ve seen each other. In the midst of my excitement and the general chaos of church life I forgot all about homework being a thing in my life. Whoops. Yesterday I realized that I have a pretty big piece of this project due next week. Whoops. “Oh hey, I have some serious work to get done!!”
After panicking, I reminded myself that this isn’t the first time I’ve written a project outline on a tight deadline. In fact pretty much everything I do happens on a tight deadline. So, tonight instead of reading a novel and baking brownies like I was planning on doing, I finished a chunk of the upcoming assignment and tried a new flavor of NadaMoo.
Over the next few days I’ll be taking a break from transcription to work on assignments for my classes. But fear not there will be more on the magic of transcription and translation in the future.
