Just like that

There are times when you look at a calendar and say to yourself, “I should really be doing something to make that ominous cloud of marker scribbles in the middle of next week less ominousing.” And then you think, “Why?” Your brain replies, “It’s important to do well.” And you think, “Well, what am I going to remember 5, 10 or 25 years from now; studying really hard for those midterms about databases and operating systems or hanging out with a friend.” Then you’re thinking, “Gold.” But you also know that you will have to study at some point and as a result may not be getting as much sleep as you would have liked.
