Anyways, on Sunday afternoon I really wanted a nap, badly! I wanted a nap so bad that instead of going out to eat with friends from church, I went home and ate lunch. However, after eating lunch, I felt the need to crack down and do some homework before my nap, so I cracked down hard.
I did homework until night-church and then came back after church and did more homework. By the time I got in bed, I was on a homework-high. I can’t say I have EVER experienced a homework-high, but it’s a lot like a running-high. You know, where you run so much, your legs go numb, endorphins come, and you just feel awesome. I felt that way about homework. I had never felt so productive… I never wanted to go back to my old way of procrastination again!
Needless to say, all week i’ve been chasing the “homework-high”. I’ve been trying to be so productive and trying to get everything done so that at the end of the day when I lay my head down, I feel good about myself. Internal motivation, eh?
(The picture above has nothing to do with anything I’m talking about, I just like the Dead Poet’s Society movie and that’s an awesome quote.)
So, it’s now Thursday and I have an hour before I leave for class and… nothing to do but cook for now. Hopefully I’ll spend the next few weeks chasing and achieving the “homework-high” as I call it… and making excellent grades! I’ll let you know how it goes!
