I decided to blog to de-stress myself from the rigors of summer school. Im taking Political Science 100, History 165 and Environmental Science 10 this term and although I’m glad I got to cram 9 of these reading-intensive classes into my rather lax summer schedule, I cant help but feel the pressure slowly approaching.
Since the entire course is packed into just six weeks, I’ve already had one midterm and will have another on Monday, I have a long paper I’m terribly lagging behind on (about two novels I’m expected to have read in High school, but never took up because I never went to a local high school)- so in addition to everything else I have to READ those novels quickly and two group projects. All of which, are due by the second week of May. God help me.
I hate the anxiety and pressure I feel in my gut when I’ve got to have completed a reading due for the day and I only start highlighting and note-taking in the morning as I dry my hair and put on my make up by my mirror. I typically never procrastinate but nowadays, it seems inevitable! I need to revamp my study habits and straighten out my schedule as soon as possible or else I may implode…metaphorically… (or wait, literally too… I’m eating like crazy and neglecting my jogging and dog walking responsibilities. Tsk tsk)
