I hate the ups and downs of motivation I've been feeling lately. I'll go through this phase where I feel like I can take on the world. So I start taking on project after project. Then somewhere in the middle of all this ambition, I cave. I start to lose my umph and I can't get myself to accomplish anything.
I have a feeling that today is going to be one of those days. I work on campus and told a friend of mine that I would cover her shift tonight. This means that I am working my shift this morning, then I will go to school, then I will work Job #2 after class (which is also a campus job) and then I will work her shift tonight. Before the day is over I will have been stuck on campus for 15 hours straight.
When I first thought this was a good idea, I had the brilliant plan that I would use today to finish my article critique, write my geology paper, catch up on all my reading, and do my research for my history class. However, as I sit here working my first shift of the day all I can think about is how I don't want to be here all day.
Why oh why did I have to feel all motivated and ambitious and sign up for everything possible today?
