I've been back in school for exactly three weeks, and our semester is only thirteen weeks long.
You'd think that almost a quarter into it I'd already be back in school mode.
Sure, I've already handed in some assignments, I've done a bunch of readings, I had an interview for a board position, and I'm starting to get ready to hand in my first paper (next Monday), take my first exam (this Thursday), and submit my first internship applications (next Tuesday).
But I'm not enthusiastic about it. I still cannot to get back into gear.
This weekend I didn't go to school once. I figured I would just "read at home," when I actually just vegged out and watched the entire first season of Modern Family.
(Excellent show, by the way)
In my defense, last week I did spend five consecutive days of more than twelve hours at school each day, including Sunday. So in a way I did deserve the weekend off. But I also just got back from a month long break of absolute and total leisure. Maybe I should have expected to come back and actually have to do some work.
But whatever the reason, I have to get back into gear.
I need to stop conceding myself little facebook breaks, and snack breaks, and nap breaks, and chat breaks.
I just got back from winter break, I've had enough breaks.
Now I just need to convince myself of what I already know and get back to work.
Easier said than done.
