I kind of feel as if I just came off of a weekend long vacation. Why? I didn’t do a thing. Nowhere to go, nowhere to be, nothing to do. It was very, very strange. Do I feel guilty about not doing any homework or being productive? Not in the slightest.
As a senior in college looking back over the past 4 years, I’ve finally noticed this pattern about myself. I work hard core all the way up until finals start approaching. Then I either come down with a cold (I blame this on lack of sleep!) or I just become tired overall (I also blame this on lack of sleep.) This usually happens two or three weeks before my first final, and I’ve learned to kind of just roll with it. I take it as my chance to walk away from homework so that I can go back feeling refreshed and ready for that final push. It works for me. 😉
That being said, I have a lot of catching up to do today! First things first…
A glass of milk with a Chocolate-Lover’s Breakfast Cookie!! With the addition of 1/4 c. each of wheatbran and canned pumpkin. Talk about volume!
I would love, love, love to fit in a bike ride this morning too. I’m such a wimp when it comes to cold temps (40F) and biking, but I seriously need to overcome this. Summer won’t be officially around for a little while yet, so I need to slowly introduce some biking into my regimen. Any tips on biking in the “cold”?
Off to be productive!! 😀
Question: Do you ever have “catch up days”? Do you plan them or do they just sort of happen? What kinds of things do you like to do as a way of catching up? Usually they come entirely unplanned for me, but I can definitely tell when my body needs them. And as far as what to do? Again, usually it’s totally unplanned, but involves doing lots of…nothing. Just relaxing and doing what I enjoy most in life (journaling, cooking, hanging out with the sister, etc.) It’s good for the body to rest sometimes. 😀
