Now, the headline of this post might seem like I’m about to offer some advice on how to juggle your responsibilities, but in fact it is the quite opposite. It is just one, big jumble of my thoughts.
These days I’m struggling to find a good balance between doing the things I should be doing as opposed to the things I want to do.
I have all sorts of ‘life’-stuff to consider. What is my bachelor’s project going to be about? What should I study for my master’s degree – and where?
On top of all the big decisions, I have all sorts of smaller, everyday things to attend to. Cleaning, studying, cooking and finding a job.
It just seems like I can never find the energy or desire to do any of those things. They all fill up my mind at once so I don’t know where to start, so I just.. don’t start on anything. It is so much easier to put on another episode on Netflix or get my computer out or something. The responsibilities can wait, right? Well, they can’t wait much longer anymore.
Do you know that feeling? Having too much inside your head to actually get anything productive done? Telling yourself that it’s alright to push your responsibilities aside for a little while, but then never really relaxing anyways?
