Weekly Report 4/30/17 to 5/14/17
Oddly enough, it seems that despite finishing most of what needs to be completed for the Final Presentation Night, I am increasingly stressed. Maybe it is because I sort of just want the year to end or maybe I just have not been using my time wisely and I have become increasingly aware of it. I am finding it hard to be as excited for the FPN as I was before. I accepted responsibilities that increase the amount of pressure on me, which might be impacting my motivation and excitement. To be honest though, I believe all my stress stems from a lack of sleep.
The procrastination problem persists, but I believe, for the most part, I have been improving. I have gotten a great deal of work finished and am continuing to work on completing all the assignments I have until the end of the year. However, I have been sleeping later than usual (due to poor time management) and it has taken its toll. By the end of school I feel exhausted and my motivation almost completely vanishes. I still manage to complete my assignments, but with less passion than usual.
I do not want that to be the case; I dislike being stressed and ill-tempered. I want succeed in giving the three speeches I plan to give in the next two weeks. I want to thrive during the FPN. I want to succeed. I cannot do that if I am not at my best, and, and despite practicing as much as I possible, I cannot expect my best at this state. That is why I am taking measures to better my schedule. Even if these are not the root problems, finding ways to mitigate them will give me a boost of confidence and motivation that I believe will carry me to the finish line. Nonetheless, I feel as though I have set a high standard for myself. I want to and will do my best to meet these standards, regardless of the results.
