2010 flew by so quickly! Only today did I fully realized that it is indeed the last month of the year. The last three days, my mind was still wandering in November. I thought I still have a good week to prepare for my lab meeting, 2 more weeks to get ready for my TRAC meeting (annual thesis research meeting), and a full month before Christmas comes. I was wrong! (Cramming mode initiate).
Today, my mind is filled with a thousand things to do, all revolving around these tasks and more! I feel my heart palpitating – and over-caffeinating myself to overcome jetlag and lack of sleep is not helping. I am taking this moment here to pause and to collect myself. Yes, there are a thousand things to do, but I don’t have to do all them all at the same time. I’m taking this next 30 minutes to come up with a battle plan for the coming days, making sure that I do not sacrifice my work or my family and friends. December, I am ready to face you!
