I’d be lying if I said I was looking forward to writing an update. It’s just, this week has been a whole lot of stress.
6 weeks until my thesis is due
8 weeks until I present my thesis
12 weeks until graduation
Needless to say, the library’s been my second home the past week and I put practicing guitar on the back burner. Can I fit practice sessions in? Of course I can! I don’t know why I haven’t squeezed time in the mornings. Instead, I’m freaking out like the the sky is falling and this weekend I experienced the repercussion of that because I crashed… hard.
The past two days I’ve been so exhausted. All my body wanted to do was sleep and my eyes were exhausted from staring at my laptop hours upon hours each day. Not to mention, my hip flexors are now tight from sitting at a desk like a workaholic. I’m not doing that anymore.
I’m not going to continue to kill myself for another 6 weeks. I can play guitar on my breaks–standing up! That’ll be a nice change. And honestly, I’m mad at myself. I just LOST an entire week of practicing. I should be better than I was a week ago, but no. My goal for the following week is to find a happy balance. Obviously graduating is my priority but I should not sacrifice my health and sanity for it.
