Time Flies When You Work Your Ass Off

Comments Off on Time Flies When You Work Your Ass Off

Has it seriously been another week already? How many has it been now? Five? Six? I’ve lost count.

Anyway, we’re really starting to get into the swing of everything here. My Mondays through Wednesdays are really hectic and busy because all my classes are during the beginning of the week. I am so glad my Calc 2 class is only twice a week. I would not be able to handle it if it were three times a week. Anyway, I had a very long first half of this week, and now that everything has slowed down I don’t know what to do with my time. Half of me is like “get all your work done, oh my gods, you’re being so unproductive! Get off your ass!” and the other half of me is like “I am so exhausted from the first half of this week, I just need a break for a day or two.”

Part of the problem is just that I have this weird feeling where I feel like I have to be spending all of my time either out with friends and doing stuff or doing homework. I’ve had 17 years of sitting on my ass at home on the internet as my only form of entertainment, and now I feel like since I’m in college something more interesting must always be happening somewhere. So I always feel like I should either be out doing things or doing work so that I can spend more time out doing things later. I really need to figure out how to just relax for a while.

On another note, I’m considering changing my major. This might just be a passing fancy or just a knee-jerk reaction to suddenly having to do a ton of math all the time, but I feel like I might do well as a Computer Science major rather than a Physics major. I’ve been tossing the idea around with one of my friends who is planning to major in Comp-Sci, and he’s making it sound really cool. I think I need a better picture of what the lives of people in those different fields are like, because although I know that my major doesn’t determine what I do with my life, I have to pick one regardless, and it would give me an advantage if I’ve been studying the right subjects for four years before I entered the working world.

Like I said, I need to learn how to relax.
