Currently reading: Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton.
I apologize for the lack of updates. Lately I have been preoccupied with my coursework. I am currently studying Library & Information Science. My head has been in my textbook and online readings for my courses. So far, the challenge for me has not been with the coursework. I have been submitting my assignments on time, and getting full credit for my work. I need to improve on balancing work and leisure.
I love to read books. You can usually find me with a book everytime you see me, either in my hand or in my messenger bag. I never leave home without a good read by my person. My leisure reading has taken a dip for obvious reasons. I am not saying this is a horrible thing. This is also not a complaint; this is an acknowledgement of a change. I need to learn how to manage my time better because I noticed that I have been devoting all of my time to required and optional readings for my courses. I also need to learn to have fun as well to ensure that I do not burn myself out.
I need to remember to breathe and to enjoy what life has to offer. Sometimes I tunnel vision on my work at the expense of ensuring my brain gets rest. Rest is important for retention and avoiding getting stressed out when challenges present themselves. Going forward, I am going to return to my breathing, return to myself, and remember that there are more things to life than work. I am going to start by picking up where I left off in Jurassic Park…
