Day 203

Yesterday after work, I went for a run/walk with Ellen, then I met Richard and some of his coworkers at Olive or Twist to celebrate the end of their workweek. (Also, Tuesday is $5 Burger Night! Boom.) Toward the end of dinner, the combination of life stress, school stress, stress, being tired, and being cold (should've worn more clothes for my run) culminated in me completely freaking out and crying about how I was tired, stressed, and cold. I ended up taking a shower to get warm. Richard put my pajamas in the dryer for me so they would be warm. Then, I wrote my blog post about how I wanted a brownie sundae and went to sleep around 9:30.

Since I had a major project that still had work to finish, set an alarm for 1:30 am. I snoozed it once but eventually got up to complete the project. Something that is happening more lately (even more than before) is that no matter how little or how much time I have, that's how much time I am going to spend on a project, paper, or another task. My project was due at noon, and I submitted it at 11:45 am. I was planted at my desk for the better part of ten hours. If it had been due at 10:00 am, I would have submitted it just before 10:00; it would not have been as good, but it would have been a complete project. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I am not doing well striving for a slightly lower grade in exchange for significantly less stress. There is still time to improve, though, as I have two papers and a final remaining.

Some good news is that I managed to have a really good day even though I woke up literally in the middle of the night. I am rewarding myself by knitting a few rows on my shawl and making my way to bed by 11:00 tonight so I don't crash tomorrow!

Something that made today great: I feel pretty good about my statistics project!
Time I woke up: 1:45 am-ish
