And I finally breathed in the air of freedom!
…well, sort of…
Having to survive on ten hours of sleep in three days wasn’t easy and surely enough it involved abnormally high intake of caffeine and sugars. But throughout the years I have learnt that you just have to do anything to complete what you have to do. With 756 and 301 tests out of my way, I can finally focus on my ‘lovely’ lab reports, which is unfortunately still due next Wednesday. At least my Professors are still kind enough not to ask us to complete everything and hand them in today or else I will most likely end up in the ICU now.
“It’s not the load that breaks you down. It is the way you carry it.”
This quote by Lou Holtz really stood out for me. The first time I read it, I was imagining Mr Holtz looking down at me while reading out this quote in the most sarcastic way ever.
How’s this year compared to last year? Madness I will answer. Things escalated and went out of control really quickly and I will humbly admit that I am having a hard time dealing with it. Day by day, I just feel that the work load gets really overwhelming and I start to wonder whether I have lost my ‘touch’.
It was pretty much a eureka moment when I came across this quote and it felt as if a dagger has been stabbed straight through my heart. Dramatic much, I know, but it hit me in the right place because subconsciously, I know it’s not the load that is giving me such a hard time. It’s exactly how I handle it.
Dear Mr Holtz, wherever you may be now, thank you for sharing your piece of mind with the rest of the world. This particular quote of yours truly acts as a reminder for me and it couldn’t have come at a better timing..
And to anyone who happen to stumble across this post, Happy Easter! ^^
