i don't know about you, but for me it's that time of the semester. that time when you're so ready to be done, but you only have a few more classes left to finish up. the time when you don't want to be in school anymore, but also need to work the hardest. the time when all the previous procrastinating you've done is like the water pushing on a broken dam. if you don't do anything it's gonna come crashing down, and all you really want to do is just close your eyes and let it surround you as you dream it away. but because you're a good student and you have dreams that require skills you don't completely have yet, you start completing those tasks. you know you can't fix the dam, the damage has been done there, but you can start taking some of the pressure off. so you move on, head first, checking those things off the checklist and counting down the days to the magical date where the time is yours again, if only for a little while. (M.12.14.15)
for myself, crunch time is the best and the worst. i do better under pressure, which is probably why i am a procrastinator in the first place. when i have a limited amount of time, especially if that time doesn't seem like it will be enough, i meet all my goals in record time, and everything seems so much better. in the long run, i'm not so sure this is the best way, as every once in a while it backfires and you're really stuck, but it's what i have found works best for me.
in the end, what matters most is that i do have people in my life who will cheer me on, who will encourage me, support me, point me back to Jesus, and love me. these people don't have to be my classmates, and that's okay. i have that community, i have that home, and that's one of the most important things for getting through this life.
wishing the best of luck to you all as you finish finals, exams, classes, or whatever happens to be consuming the majority of your time currently. love to you!
