I seem to be swinging between two extremes lately: really good and really, really bad. This week would come under the really bad category. Not for lack of motivation, but for lack of general health and wellbeing. This week has been crappy.
I’ve been waking up at 6am before my alarm goes off, which is great. No joke, this is awesome. I have been wanting to do this for a long, long while now. I get to wake up slowly, read blogs, drink my coffee before getting on with my day and doing the dreary yet ‘necessary’ things. Ah, adulthood, you fickle mistress.
The downside to waking up ‘early’? I get really, really tired at 1pm. I went to a meeting at lunch, and then came back home to have a nap. I woke up feeling like a million dollars but this is happening too often now. I cannot afford to lose hours of daylight to sleep. You know what else is weird? I’m getting sleepy by 10pm. I simply cannot keep my eyes open. I was studying for an online test and I ended up falling asleep with the book on my face. Whoops.
I swear that I actually like strategic management.
Am I a uni student or a nana? What happens when I need to pull an all-nighter? Because let’s be real, it’s going to happen sometime in the near future. I have deadlines coming out my eyeballs, and I’m running out of time.
Another ‘weird’ thing is nausea. Oh my, it is real. I’ll be eating something, happy as clam, until I realise that my stomach is getting the eject button ready. Today, I had to do a marathon sprint through the library to reach the bathroom. Not only did I look like a crazy psycho who was going to pee herself, I feel like I resembled a version of Bambi that was trying to figure out this whole ‘run’ thing in the first place. Have you ever tried to run through a crowded room whilst carrying a bag, books, a drink bottle, and avoiding standing on your shoelaces at the same time?
Didn’t think so. Next time you see a Bambi-like human, be sympathetic. You never know what they could be going through.
So, the last couple of weeks have looked like this:
The first week of semester: everything is butterflies and rainbows.
The second week of semester: total loss of motivation coupled with illness.
The third week of semester (this week): group work coupled with illness.
Needless to say, I am very, very glad that I have one tutorial tomorrow before I’m free for the weekend. Now, without further adieu, I am going to hit publish and go for my second nap of the day.
