Priorities, Prisms, Prisons

I am feeling as though I may have bitten off more than I can chew. The end of my full-time service obligation to the country may not have been something I saw as dramatic, but I realize I was overly optimistic about my capacity and appetite for projects, work and activities.

I choked a deadline last week, and the next is actually not far away. However, for the next two weeks, I do not foresee myself having a lot of breathing room in between preparing for two urgent and pressing commitments. In writing the previous sentence, I realize how much I might actually have to compromise on some aspects of those commitments because they are not quite as vital as the less pressing but rather more consequential one.

I have not heard the phrase, ‘Wake up your idea!’ used in earnest for a long time. The last time I did, I was offended on some profound level by the manifest senselessness of the statement, but managed to proceed as though I wasn’t, despite my disquiet. It honestly wasn’t very difficult, and I suppose now is the right time to be less profound and more…

Procedural? Process-oriented? No, that’s actually worse, and I shall stop before I drift further.
