Sundays used to be the most relaxing day of the week. I slept in late, woke up for a spot of breakfast (normally prepared by The Man, as he’s such a go-getter in the morning), then just generally sat around and watched TV, read a book, whatever else. Since I went back to grad school, however, Sundays have become the hardest day of my week.
Monday through Friday are ball-busting days where I race to get everything done for work (and never do), then do homework after, followed by band practice, freelance work, blogging, research, and exercising. Saturdays I get to spend a little time sleeping in, then generally wake up to do the work I didn’t get done during the week, work on more homework, and then do whatever The Man is thinking about doing, whether it’s meeting up with friends, going vintage shopping, cleaning the house (this is huge with him…I’m the lazy one when it comes to needing the windowsills to be dust-free), maybe catching a movie or a concert. On Sunday I wake up early, get my exercise out of the way, and finish off all of my homework for the week.
Since I go to school online, I have the luxury of taking a bit of time getting all of the work done, but there’s still a deadline, and it’s EST 11:59pm every Sunday evening. I write papers, create videos and powerpoint slideshows, put together podcasts, whatever is requested, and Sunday is my catchall day, when all of the work that has yet to be completed demands my attention and dedication.
In the morning I have to write a paper comparing the optimization of my project website’s competition, and describe how they’re getting the edge by choosing the right keywords and putting them in the right places. There are several more chapters to read in my textbook before I can go that far, however, as well as a lecture video that needs watching. I did as much as I could tonight, but now I’m enjoying my glass of wine and a bit of personal time before calling it a night then waking up to school. So while I have a bit of free time left, I’m going to investigate some new blogs that I’ve found links to via a new Blog Hop I’ve joined. Who knows, maybe I’ll meet some more friends to procrastinate with!
