After working for 8 hours a day…every day…all summer long…I’m not sure how I will take the shock of returning to college life. There are two different paths I can take:
- I can retaliate against the level of productivity I have had all summer, and the early hour that I have been waking up at by sleeping in until outrageous hours (11 a.m. – noon ish…or maybe just 9 a.m.).
- I can continue to get up around 6:30-7 a.m. every morning, and work hard every night to get everything done.
Let’s be serious…the second probably isn’t going to happen unless I get another internship…and somehow find the motivation to keep it going. What would be perfect though, is despite when I have class, work, or anything else, if I could find the happy medium in between the two. Too much productivity for me is exhausting…but I do love getting things done. During the school year, the biggest waste of time for me is Facebook and Twitter, and working every day without checking each site every 5 minutes is seriously revolutionizing the way that I live my life. Even when I come home now, I spend significantly less time creeping on everyone that I know, and it is a rather beautiful thing (even though I’m not as “in the know” anymore).
Even though I’m not sure how I will handle managing my time when I go back to school…I do know that I am so excited to not have to cook for myself anymore (I won’t have to have grilled cheese every night) and I know that one other aspect of my college life will not change…the state of my room…
