My adviser said she has a meeting and asked me to walk with her so we can discuss my proposal. We talked for 20 minutes until she got where she is suppose to be. I ran back to the department because my class was starting in 8 minutes. I checked my watch and told myself, if I talk to committee #two for 6 minutes, I have 2 minutes time to run to my class.
For lunch I was suppose to meet my friend, and then another meeting. Then class.
In the last class, I was thinking how tired I am.
Well, I am not used to these back to back schedules, so is not my body. This is not normal for me and I think unless you love this lifestyle, nobody should consider this normal. I have put a practice for myself, every hour the bell rings in our university. At that moment I stop doing whatever I am doing and take a deep breath.
I am tired because I need to rest, its 11:20 pm and I am awake writing here. I was thinking how much I miss writing but the busy schedule doesn’t let that happen.
Its really hard to find the balance based on your values but I am sure if I start respecting that so will people around me.
P.S. Tomorrow is climate strike, will be there and I think people need to go because of the future of our kids.
