It’s the first day and unfortunately when you’re transitioning, first days stink. You’ll start, but maybe your efforts are initially half-hearted. In my case, I’m forcing myself to stare at my 380 and 355 books and I’m sure that somewhere in the back of my mind, a timer’s going off, counting down the minutes. I’ve never found them overly productive, but I view them as a milestone. At least I started.
I counted up the number of hours I’ve wasted today and blanched. It’s worse because I know that time is one of those things I just won’t get back. I wonder if I can recover from the lost time.
Well – not that I have a choice. I’ve 6 days till my first exam and I better be ready for it.
