Where have all the Sundays Gone?

Dear Reader, Do you dread Mondays? I didn’t always, but now that my job has entered the busy season, I feel a sense of dread creep in every Sunday. I learned that I’m not the only one that feels this way. I looked it on Google and found a few articles, “Surprising 81% feel ‘Sunday […]

Living from Deadline to Deadline

Dear Reader, Do you like deadlines? Although I always considered myself to be the sort of person to get work done early, I am relying increasingly on deadlines to motivate me to get started on anything at all. For example, I have two meetings coming up in less than 24 hours, this means that preparation […]

The Umpteenth Time Around

Dear Reader, Do you remember learning how to ride a bike? Well, even if you don’t, I’m sure you struggled the first time around (I definitely did). Almost everything that we do, we had to learn at some point or another. Just think about writing. We literally struggled for years on this task. Can you […]

The Art of Mental Fumigation

Dear Reader, Why is it that one good night’s sleep will not make up for six bad ones? Or, why taking up aerobics won’t undo the damage of years spent chain smoking? For some reason, life doesn’t really offer too many quick fixes. I’ve been having some trouble with my iPhone lately. Sometimes the screen […]

Stressing about Stress

Dear Reader, How do you deal with stress? Actually, better question… do you deal with stress? Stress is real. It is your body’s emotional and physical response to tension.

Dear Reader, When faced with a large task do you have a tendency to get everything done now or wait until the last minute? Although your tendency towards action or procrastination may depend on the specific situation, most of us have a natural inclination towards one or the other. I prefer to start things early, […]

Occupying Free Time

Dear Reader, If you were unexpectedly granted an evening free from work or commitments, how would you spend it? My guess is that how you consider this question is heavily influenced by whether you are more of a planner or more of a go-with-the-flow type — a type A or a type B. I am […]

Manic Monday

Dear Reader, Are you familiar with Murphy’s Law? If not, it’s the old adage that states — anything that can go wrong, will indeed go wrong. Of course, this is not a scientific fact, but when you’re having a bad day, it can sometimes be comforting to think that the events that transpired are not […]

That Hole Where Friendships Used to Be

Dear Reader, How do friendships fit into your life? Naturally, we tend to make friends with the people around us and with the people who share our interests. If you think about your own friends (from any point in your life), you can probably group these individuals into categories, for example work friends, school friends, […]

Cinderella Syndrome

Dear Reader, All work and no play makes Jack a very dull boy. On the scale of work and life, this weekend for me was extraordinarily heavy on the work side. I am currently struggling with graduate school applications and have spent a large amount of time on formulating a research question. I have calculated […]
