catch up

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!

herbal tea with oatmeal, almond butter, homemade granola, and strawberry slices! yum!

I have a tendency to procrastinate, so typically once I finally start an assignment, I panic and worry that I'm not going to get it done in time.. which just makes focusing that much more difficult!! But getting so much done in the morning actually gives me a lot of momentum and energy for the rest of the day, so this is great! Back to work!!
