It’s nice to know that my life has a deadline.
I don’t work very well when I face the future. For the past month, whenever I look at the date February 14th, I see deadlines. Deadlines everywhere, piling up, crushing, suffocating, destroying my very self.
So what do I do? I’m usually rendered incapable of working, so I do my best to empty out my brain and focus on the here and now: Get this homework done first. Make that study guide. Finish your essay. Baby steps.
But the relative calm doesn’t last forever. In the last week, I’ve had a slightly different reaction to that date, and for the most part, all of February.
What do I do?
