Much Ado About Nothing

Weeks have gone by and it seems I’ve managed to do the bare minimum. I’ve become a master at listing things I plan to do in my head, on days I wake up feeling productive, then later cancelling them off my virtual to do list as “too much admin.”Studying for internship tops the list of things I’ve let fall through the cracks followed by getting my spiritual life in order, figuring out my side hustle and making a more conscious effort to maintain my mental health.Last week I decided to make a study timetable that Is too ambitious, a mood…
