I’m halfway through finals week. I’ve already finished the final lab for my physics course. I’m studying efficiently for my math final and I only have a ten page paper due for my preceptorial course. . . .Too bad my laptop broke yesterday. Where I could have worked in the comfort of my room, now I have to hunker down in the library. Where I could have kept all the files conveniently on my laptop, now I have to work off a thumb drive. Where I could have procrastinated over my paper, now I actually have to focus. I’m actually not that worried about it.
I embrace the challenge.
It has been said that when life gets hard, you’ve just leveled up.
