There’s this Rembrants song I used to listen to during finals week in college. It goes like this:
I’ve got these feelings I’m trying to deal with
I’m not sure you understand
If I seem like I’m too preoccupied
To fit into your plans
It’s just that it’s one thing on top of another
And now it’s one too many high
I wonder how many piles of things it takes
To bury me alive
For the first time since graduating, I have the urge to break out that song. The trouble is, in college, no matter how stressful finals are they are always over in a week.
This mountain of things I have to do? Is not going to be over in a week.
And when I’m done, I’m going to be buried under MORE responsibility, not less.
And if I fail the class, I can’t just repeat it.
I do not for one moment want to go back to school. But sometimes being an adult just sucks.
[As a side note, last week I took down all my lj icons that had other people’s intellectual property on them. It was time. But now, I find myself with a shortage of ranty icons. Thank goodness for the two Mandy made me. Thank you Mandy! I guess I need to take some angrier photos, instead of all the pretty flower ones. Some days are just not pretty flower days.]
