On one hand it helps me prioritize and organize. The lists allow me to see what needs to get done and figure out what needs to be done first. It is great for keeping me on track. I feel so accomplished when I cross off things.
On the other hand it stresses me out because I know that I will not get through the lists. If I stayed up all weekend and worked constantly, I would still have things to do on my to-do list.
Why do I do this to myself? I have no idea. Hopefully I can get a majority of the things crossed off my lists. I may be exhausted and cranky by Sunday night but at least I’ll have accomplished things right?
I have a midterm this next week. I’m freaking out a bit about it. Some of the material I know. I understand it and have no problem bringing it to mind. The rest of it though I don’t know. I think we will be able to have our notes and books for the midterm which is a great bonus. Still I’m worried.
I think if I weren’t stressing about this midterm (and all the other homework on the list) I’d be doing better and the post-it pad might not have taken such a beating.
