Reality Whiplash

I was unable to sleep last night, and didn’t go to bed till nearly 4:00 AM. I was then held captive for 90 minutes by a business phone call first thing this morning, while I was trying to iron my shirt.

Then I came to work and had back to back hour+ meetings.

Tonight I have class till 10 PM. It’s a whiplash inducing snap back into reality after a long weekend. I don’t like snapping back to reality. It’s annoying and it’s compounded by the fact that I’m starving and I haven’t slept.

I have a major project due on Wednesday in school, and a major project due one week from today for my other class. I have at least 30 pending work assignments that are all “critical” and “urgent” at the same time.

Do you ever get to the point where you have so much to do, you just shut down and do nothing? I’m definitely wobbling on the edge of that line. I just want to lock myself in my house and stay there until spring.

Oh yeah, I forgot another thing… while I was on my super-long phone call this morning, my office at work was being piled with crap that doesn’t belong to me. “You had an empty table and we needed a place to sort stuff” was the reason. I’m staring at it right now. It’s lovely.

If I cut class tonight, I’ll get assigned to give my final report in my Forecasting Theory class this coming Monday. If I go, I have a chance to put it off for 2 extra weeks. So my laziness is trumping my laziness, if that makes any sense.

Anyhow, I must go pick up food before I go into a diabetic coma.

    Next time you take time off work leave piles of crap on your desk before you leave. Then, when you get back to work simply sweep said piles of crap straight into the waste basket.

    Nothing like a nice File 13 to start your first workday back.

    My situation is not nearly as bad as yours. But I’m still going to feel sorry for myself. Hang in there. I know you can make it.

    Yes I have just shut down and you know what I learned? Someone always will either pick up your slack, or it wasn’t that important anyway. And if you give your forcasting report next Monday, you’ll be done with it, and will be able to focus on the next step….like the proper rum to coke ratio 101.

    Yes, I’ve been so busy with so much stuff that I have stopped working. Then if I do get the wind back in my sails, I plod through it like it never ends because hey, it doesn’t ever end.
