No, Navy SEALs have it easy. I am going through a week of HELL, no joke. Make that two weeks. It's Thursday night at 10:30. I have just finished a presentation I have to give tomorrow on Internet Lingo and Shorthand in our schools. Okay, done. Looks like it was done by a pro. Tomorrow, I give the presentation. I have classes at 9:10-10:00, 10:20-11:10, lunch til 11:40 and I'm back into work, doing EVERYTHING, presentation at 1:30, class at 2:20-3:30. Then working on a 15 page paper on viral marketing that's due on Friday by 3:30. Not even emailed, it needs to be handed to HIM before he leaves for the day. I've barely started on this, just haven't had time. Not to mention the chemistry exam on carbohydrates and acids and an exam in German on Friday. When will I study for these? Only God knows. Tuesday, I have another paper due, have to give another presentation on an overview of cancer, and lastly a photo critique for material I have yet to photograph, or even conceptualize what I'm doing. I need to figure out how to conceptualize a self portrait of myself, of something that's not obvious to the world. Music is out. Then I need to figure out and photograph, develop, and print a series of at least 10 prints, perfectly photographed, with perfect contrast, spotted and matted ready for presentation. Somewhere in there I need to figure out what I'm going to photograph, photograph it, print it, etc. Throw in a piano lesson that I cannot postpone without failing my course and two bass lessons that cannot be postponed for the same reason due to the time in the school year. Can't postpone anything, can't get extensions on anything without withdrawing from a course which will end up on my transcript and prevent me from recieving financial aid. And to top it off, I get news that my Grandfather passed away, and the school is unable to grant me time to mourn, I'm unable to make it to Cleveland for the wake or service, and frankly, I don't stress easy. My blood pressure is more than likely through the roof. I've got an awful cold, allergies, with a swollen throat and a wandering mind. Oh, and my roommate's surfing Something Awful forums laughing at everything he sees, commenting on it and whatnot, and there's a ruckus in the halls about God knows what. Ten days until final exams. Time to study for those, but when will I? The photography is going to kill me, but I can't start on that til this paper is out of the way. I'm hungry, I have to pee, but eating and going to the bathroom take time. Boy am I stressed. Even my ex-girlfriend is worried because she knows I never stress about ANYTHING, that I work well under pressure, but here and now it's built up too far. I'd try meditating, but I seriously don't have the time. Maybe I'll go for a run, but I'll have to figure out a way to write my paper while doing it... SEALs have it easy.
