Campus Calm | Students, Parents, Educators, College Stress, High-School Blog Archive Summa Cum Laude & Valedictorian: Are They Worth It?
I am a self-proclaimed work-aholic.
When I am not in school, I become very depressed when I have nothing to do.
I can't get away from work without feeling guilty about the mounting pile of incomplete paperwork.
Either I work like heck, or I don't work AT ALL...like when I burn-out.
Well, I was feeling a bit burnt-out. For the past several weeks, I was averaging 3-4 hours of sleep per night, including many weekends.
So, I spent last Friday and Saturday doing no homework. I was so tired of my personality, so I rebelled against it.
Frankly, it was harder to NOT work than it was to keep going on my schoolwork.
Well...for once in my life, I actually relaxed and had fun.
It is the night before my work is due, and I am procrastinating. But I chose to do this to myself. I went into this knowing the consequences of not working Friday and Saturday--working like Heck on Sunday.
So this has been a bit of a rant, but I feel like I have finally seen a LIGHT--I have realized a profound truth about my existence!
It IS possible to have fun AND to work at the same time!
