*sniffs the air* Ah Finals week! Smells like... STRESS.
Yup, stress is upon us and it is time to tread softly on the GT campus for fear of setting someone off. I spent the majority of yesterday studying for my finals, fighter practice was cancelled due to cold weather so studying was my main recourse for the day.
Now, let's talk about last week.
Last week I lost myself. I lost control and became a machine to work on this project for school, I neglected my friend and I even neglected Amanda, causing a great deal of pain because of my tunnel vision. And for what? A stupid number in my grades?
I screwed up last week and let my workaholic personality take over. Something that is now on the top of my list to change. I could almost envision it as if it were a movie, a friend pulled me off to the side and said 'Let's talk a walk.' And on that walk we had a long discussion about it and about what I needed to do differently for myself, and for the sake of others. Indeed it is something that has left me little else to think about. *sigh* But that will pass, it always does.
