Dealing with Downtime

Well finals week hit, and it hit hard.

Staying awake writing essays until 4 am every morning nearly killed. Mostly figuratively. But also maybe literally.

After finals ended I decided to sleep for about 2 weeks straight so I apologize for the slight hiatus from this blog.

Summer is now upon us and now I’m sitting at my desk everyday trying to figure out what in the world to do with my last couple weeks of break before my summer course begins. I don’t handle breaks well, I never have. I feel directionless and I’m never quite sure what to do with all my neurotic energy. I have so many half-completed projects that are taking up space in my room and in my head. I have this tendency of trying to take on everything all at once only to get so overloaded that I drop everything altogether. I’m also terrible at trying to micromanage my time. So when I’m on a break from school and no longer facing deadlines, I tend to try to micromanage my free time instead of just enjoying my projects.

I’m working on it, I swear.

For now I’ll work on my personal projects and dedicating more time to myself. I’ll work to post here more consistently and writing more for myself. I also have some big ideas in the works right now but I probably won’t be posting about it here until I’ve worked out a game plan for it. So for now: to be continued.

If any of you have ideas for some fun and/or productive summer projects feel free to drop some suggestions in the comments! Also, I hope everyone who faced exams or finals recently did well and is now looking forward to enjoying your break!

Happy summer everyone.

m.m.t.
