I thought it’s still March but it’s already May (random self-reflection)

I’m starting to lose my sense of time by staying cooped up in my room with no school and a proper schedule. My day passes by really seamlessly that I couldn’t tell the difference between yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I do try to keep myself busy and occupied with job hunting applications. But most of the time I just procrastinate and live my life inside Animal Crossing. I realized recently that I’ve invested more than 200 hours into the game and that’s when I realized I’m in deep trouble.

I really should get my life together haha.

I haven’t touched my thesis ever since I completed my survey. I was stuck trying to analyze a bunch of data and I couldn’t progress because I did not know (and I still don’t) how to interpret all these numbers. I could’ve (should’ve, would’ve) contacted my professor to ask for help but I really couldn’t juggle between writing a thesis and doing job hunting. I ended up leaving it untouched until this moment to prioritize the latter.

Little did I realize that time passed by so fast that it’s already 2 months before the actual thesis submission date. Being the procrastinator I am, I’m starting to feel a bit uneasy about the current status of my paper. I decided that I won’t pick up on any new job applications after I submit my last one and start focusing on finishing up my paper ASAP.

Hopefully this time I don’t push it back again.

  1. I hate writing thesis statements too. Not that I had to write very many since I never finished college. Anyways, it’s easy to find yourself unfocused especially right now when you’re stuck inside. I know the feeling, and I’ve been quarantined longer than anyone (as a stay-at-home-mom and no car). The days do turn to blurs, which is why I’m very keen on making sure I cross yesterday off my calendar every morning. Sometimes I do it at night just because I don’t want to forget. Anyways, I wish you the best of luck with your thesis. I’m sure you’ll do well. And good luck with the job hunt! I know it’s not easy!

    1. I try to write daily journal entries to get my sense of time intact but sometimes I’m too tired to do so and I just end up forgetting about it. Haha.

      Anyways, my professor contacted me and asked about the thesis before I did lol. I completely forgot that I was supposed to send her a mandatory update by the end of last month. I feel super guilty but thankfully the professor understands what all of us last year students are going through so she didn’t really mind. We’re going to have an online meeting next Monday so I need to refresh my memories and at least make a little progress before then!

  2. I guess my comment didn’t go through? I did comment lol Anyways, I know how you’re feeling with the days blurring together. That’s my day every day being a stay-at-home mom. Anyways, I’m sure you’ll do great on your thesis! I’m sure you’ll get it done on time too!

    1. The first comment went through! I don’t know what happened but I’m sorry for the inconvenience!
