Snooki will save your sanity

I have a lot going on this quarter. Too much, probably. But all of it is important and none of it can be postponed. So consequently I feel like a juggler with a dozen or so pins in the air, constantly working to keep everything moving and in sync. It’s a challenge. I keep finding myself zoning out in class as I mentally make to-do lists of all the things I have to get done. No bueno. I’m pretty good at managing my time and I actually prefer being super busy over being bored, but this quarter is going to stretch the limits of time management skills. Sink or swim, eh?

I’ve found that it’s incredibly important to take some time on a regular basis to do something that will allow you to mentally check out for a bit, no matter how much you have going on. For me, that means watching Jersey Shore. Yes, yes, I know – absolute trash. But that’s the beauty of it. It doesn’t require a single iota of brain power to sit and be entertained by the drunken antics of the GTL crew. And after I’ve watched an episode I feel refreshed and ready to read something really dense and theoretical, thereby proving to myself how intellectually superior I am.

Brilliant, no? 😀
