The delivery date approaches. What seemed so far off one month ago now feels like it accelerated as it approached. Our perception of time is so skewed.
English paper due by the end of the semester? No problem. That is so far off, I have plenty of time (to procrastinate).
Wait, what do you mean it’s due next week? Where did the nine weeks go? There couldn’t have been that many days elapsed since the last time I thought about it. I’m pretty sure I only saw five sunrises, and three sunsets. See? Only a few days have passed.
Oh yeah. I’ve been up before dawn, arriving at work in the dark. Spending all day indoors. Working late on multiple projects. Leaving work after dark. Dark to dark. No days to mark.
How could this get worse? I know. I’ll mentally commit to participating in regular blog posting and responding to several daily prompts each week? No pressure. What could go wrong?
After all, it’s only after 9:30 p.m. (eastern US) now and I’m finally responding to the morning prompt…
How often do you get to (or have to) be awake for sunrise? Tell us about what happened the last time you were up so early (or late…).
