"Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion."
This is especially true with me. I've only had one day of class, but somehow I feel booked solid.
Some people procrastinate so that they only have an hour to work, and, as a result, their work only takes an hour.
But I can't function that way. So I end up starting way in advance and spending six hours on a task that should take half an hour.
I'm already overwhelmed by what isn't done. Why is my new apartment still a mess!? Why haven't I studied for the GRE more? Why does my brain feel like applesauce?
It's like I only know how to get stuff done when I'm stressing about it. This is a problem.
In other news, I am happy to be back at college. I missed everybody a lot. I don't ever want to graduate. (I would just be happy never to do schoolwork again.)
