What do you do when you have way! way! way! too much work to get done--in only three days--and you have no idea how you're going to finish it all in time?? Yep, that's pretty much the question that's been on a continuous loop, going through my head--over and over again. And, what am I doing about it? Definitely not studiously working through it like I should be, hence the time I'm taking for this journal entry. It's more like I'm just letting it pile up, and come Friday, I'm pretty much screwed. No! Such a bad attitude. I need to be more optimistic...and less of a procrastinator haha. I will live through the week and I will get everything done!!
On a brighter note...I finished another book. A wonderful book may I add. It's called Willow by Julia Hoban. It was very...intense. Yeah that's a good word. It was also sad, romantic, full of compassion and love, emotion retching, tortured, compelling, satisfying, tearing and full of brokenness but splashed throughout with hope of redemption. Reading the inside where a "glimpse of the book" is written before it actually starts, I wasn't sure I would be able to even handle reading the book. But once I got started I just couldn't put it down, and soon enough I was already racing toward the ending pages. Now that I have read it, I'm glad that I did. It really gives you an inside look into a world that--at least that I personally--can never fully understand. Having not been there myself. It really makes you think about what you have and about how important your family is. How at any time, something tragic could change your entire life, in the blink of an eye, could be ripped apart. It really makes you appreciate what you have and the people in your life who love and care about you. They mean so much!
Well, now that I was able to write my little review on Willow, I'm out. It's been a nice break, but now I unfortunately need to get back to my school work. So I'm off to the world of textbooks and research papers. Wish me luck...I'll need all the luck I can get.
