Why do long weekends feel so short?

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

swear it was Friday like 2 hours ago and I had a whole weekend of opportunity to get caught up on all the studying, organization, maybe even a workout or two...

Yet somehow I find myself sitting at my desk Tuesday morning, exhausted and feeling even further behind. Now it’s not like I did nothing for 3 days mind you, I got a few hours of studying in and I did all the normal weekend chores, I just didn’t make-up ground like I had planned. Perhaps I need to find a way to get more productive hours per day, or perhaps the problem lies more with my expectations... Between work and studying, I’m pretty sure I’ve already taken on more than there are hours in a week (ideally 50-100 hours of studying plus the 38 hours of work), and I still need to fit in things like sleep, the gym, basic house work, oh yeah, and having some sort of a personal life... So this week’s goal, since I can’t add extra hours to the day (I’ve been trying to years now), is to find a way to optimize the time I do have, study more efficiently and make smaller/more realistic study goals so I feel like I’ve accomplished what I wanted to each day and can maybe start sleeping at night again. Wish me luck, because I know once I get home tonight the nice comfy couch is going to be calling my name...

    After years, I have finally been convinced that journaling is the way to get everything and more done. If you decide what has to be done and how much time you have to use - divide it up, do it - even if you can only do a half of a chore you will see SOME progress. Keep revising your plan and it will finally work out. Give it a shot!!!
    Wishing you good luck!!! I'll bet you can do it!!! emoticon
