The Deep Breath Before the Plunge

The hours are ticking away. I'm feeling a great urge to rip out the clock's hands and stop the march of time.

But of course, dropping a pebble into a raging river doesn't stop the torrent. Sending one clock to kingdom come doesn't impede the roll of years. Hell, even if you destroyed the gajillion clocks in the world, time would go on.

Damn. Christmas Break is over!

Tomorrow, thousands of students will be trudging back to the hallowed grounds of UP. Unfortunately, I'll be one of them.

The immensity of what needs to be done in the months ahead is already chipping away at my morale. Before April arrives, I would've helped in the publication of four school paper issues (two for Parser, two for Logscript) and the completion of two pseudo-theses (Software Engineering & Database Systems). Six courses would've been (hopefully) passed, and 300 hours would've been spent in my part-time job. That's not discounting two websites up and running (one for my organization, another as a sideline). All the while, this blog would've been constantly updated! Sana.

Man, I'm already looking forward to summer.

does the thought that you are not the lone person who's got tons to do this year offer any comfort?

all i know is that you can accomplish what you will yourself to accomplish. however, do not tire yourself. your psuedo beer belly (since i don't think that you constantly drink beer) might disappear if you stress yourself out. just do whatever you can in a day and let yourself get at least five hours of sleep.

now that you have a blog, i shall constantly bug you! bwahahahah!
