I have all my work done for this week. Except for studying for Friday’s physics midterm.
This is the type of situation where you’re lost and you know it’s fixable, but but you’re so fucking behind that it takes you a few days of floundering about and feeling sorry for yourself to get your shit together. Like last semester, a week before my programming term project was due. Or even sophomore year of high school when I first got my GPA/class rank and it took an entire semester of pitying myself before I actually got down to work and raised my grades.
If I drop down a letter grade in physics, I’m going to hate myself.
Also Pittsburgh weather is really fucking bipolar (like the Sunday before the last when it was in the 80s and everyone was outside and got sunburned, then started snowing the following Tuesday, 2 days later.) I forgot that my shift at work was cancelled so I showed up to the audio booth, realized I didn’t have work because this concert didn’t need recording, couldn’t walk out during the performance, waited 20 minutes (to be fair, it was a pretty decent performance,) finally got out of the auditorium, realized it had started pouring, watched with my own eyes while the rain turned into pebble-sized hail while I was deliberating whether I should make a run for it and let my laptop get wet, waited out the hail for another 15 minutes, then ran back home in drizzly rain and flooded streets (and got my shoes/socks soaked in ankle-deep water).
Today’s been a struggle.
As will the rest of this week until the midterm.
