The Pressure's On

Sunday, April 22, 2007

The reality of leaving San Diego has finally started to set in and I’m beginning to feel the heat. For me, this is actually a good thing as I’ve learned that I’m very poor at getting things done without a deadline. As my parents will attest, when I was in elementary school and junior high, I had a bad habit of laying down in bed only to have whatever project was due the following morning (and, of course, I had not started) come rushing to the forefront of my mind and startle me to full consciousness in an overwhelming bevy of emotions, namely stress, fear and regret. Sadly, things have not changed. I have, however, gotten a little better at recognizing a looming deadline and planning somewhat accordingly.

The fun is on hold, at the moment, while I bear down and start packing up and jettisoning all of my belongings (look for a For Sale post in the next day or two). I figure I’ve got a solid 2-3 weeks to get everything in order and that’s deadline enough for me.

(Vegas post is half-written, should be up shortly)
