Time Flies.......

Have you ever felt like you were behind, didn’t know where the time went, and that you probably won’t catch back up? Yeah, I feel that way right now. Today, someone said we were in week 5 (ok, he said 7, but I double checked for accuracy) and I did a mental double take. I couldn’t believe we had already gone through 1/3 of the semester. Thinking back to the first semester everything seemed to go by exceptionally slowly. That doesn’t really change.

One thing I’ve realized while being here is that the weeks seem to go buy slowly, but when looking back they go by like lightning. It is probably because of this speed that I feel slightly behind on my outlines and other work, however, in reality, I am probably pretty close to on target. I think that feeling behind keeps you on your toes and moving where if you feel as though you are drowning it is a bad sign. I have a feeling that if I simply get back into the grove I had last semester everything will probably become more manageable.
