I think that this may be the busiest that I have ever been in my life. So much to do and for every task I finish, there seems to be 3 more that come up and I have to choose which to take on. I don't mind being busy, but the fact that I'm starting to feel physically ill from working so hard might be a sign that I'm hitting my limits. Though it's a small consolation, I take some pride in the fact that this has nothing to do with procrastination on my part (sure, I could have finished a lot while I was in WA over Christmas break... but that was family time, vacation and ultimately, sacrosanct. As it was, I spent five solid days after returning to Japan grading and prepping). What it does have to do with is the fact that I over-commit myself... I really need to learn to tell people 'no' when they ask me to do things for them... and also to be realistic about the work I generate for myself, especially in the way of grading. Praying for health, energy and perseverance... this, too, shall pass.

  1. What is very interesting is that I named my blog post for yesterday "Busy!".
    Unfortunately for me I procrastinated. :(
