I finally got a day off to stay home in my pj's and catch up on all my homework that's been piling up on me!! And it's crucial that I get most of it done today, too, because I'll be vacationing this weekend (yay!) and next week my little brother is coming to DC for the first time!!
I was chatting with a friend last night about how pulling all-nighters just doesn't seem to work as well now that we're in grad school. I guess we're too old for that now! But one day this week, she woke up at 6:30 and was able to get so much done - and could actually focus, too! I was determined to be as productive as possible today, so I climbed out of bed at 7:15 this morning.. not quite 6:30.. but we're taking baby steps, ok! And it really did make a difference - I had time to make a really great breakfast, answer some work emails, and clean up the apartment a little before tackling my assignments!
