Making Soup

I’m stuck right now. I don’t know why, but it seems like I have so many balls up in the air, so insanely many things that need my attention and care and intellect and all of my brain power, that I find myself standing like a deer in the headlights. For example, take right now: I have three papers due. I have applications to work on. I have GRE studying to do. And what am I doing? Laying in bed, looking at recipes, thinking about making a pot of soup, and taking a bath. It’s as though, since I can’t do it all, my brain has taken a sabbatical. I know its ridiculous. And I know I have to tackle the beasts before me. And I know I will. But probably not tonight. Odds are, Im going to make some soup.

  1. After the soup, you can try pinning all the options to a dart board and see which option wins. Maybe you could draw lots. I’ve had the deer in headlights thing going too. Generally, I choose the task that screaming loudest. Not that I recommend that method, but it’s where I end up some days.

  2. Sabbatical = sanity.

    And soup.

    I also feel like a deer in the headlights. I just keep reminding myself to take one thing at a time and to breathe. Some days that works better than others…

    Maybe I should make soup, too.

    • I understand. And thanks in advance for whatever it is! I will probably need it, because our lives are going to get crazier in a few weeks. When I have a minute, I will send you an email.
