a phenomenon  
i must confess that, despite sleeping a whole lot these days, the moment i attempt to focus on a piece of assignment with an upcoming deadline attached to it, i will involuntarily feel an overwhelming sense of tiredness coming over me.

yet, at the point that i decide to cave in to this overpowering lethargy, as i put everything aside and prepare for bed, i always suddenly find myself wide awake. then, when i decide that perhaps i should go back to my work after all, that strange sense of fatigue comes over me once more. this cycle repeats itself over and over again until simply too much time has been wasted.

i don't know why this happens or how i can curb it. somehow, this doesn't happen, however, the day before a paper is due, even if i sit in front of the compie for hours on end, working continuously through the day and night. how weird.
 
 
Mood: lethargic

that happens to me all the time. and i think the reason why you can't get to sleep even though you're dead tired is because you're guilty and worried about your work. so it's kind of a cause and effect thing that never ends unless you complete either one.

sometimes, especially when i am very enthusiastic about the project, i find that i am able to concentrate better. so i try to do as much as possible while that passion lasts (because it doesn't), and not let anything get in the way (which explains why i eat, bathe and sleep at weird hours... my mum just doesn't understand).

if i feel tired, i just tell myself that even if i go to sleep, i'll just be worried awake, so might as well just continue working. then i'll just work and work until i fall asleep, problem solved. haha.

the reason you can't sleep:

"Many things--such as loving, going to sleep, or behaving unaffectedly--are done worst when we try hardest to do them."

Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Literature
C.S. Lewis

strange to say, i have no problem getting to sleep... it's only the problem of waking up and staying awake. another big problem is not so much about sustaining the passion but obtaining the passion in the first place. haha.

hope school has been fine this week! know what i'm talking about..

in reference to my quote above, does this mean that we shouldn't try so hard to be disciplined and study so hard and put in so much effort in our schoolwork? mmm... food for thought. *yawn*

thanks for the concern. it's fine, just that we got attacked suddenly with 2 new projects (think Blitzkrieg), which adds up to a total of 3. there's gonna be submission every week, and the worst thing is the projects are exactly stuff that i have difficulty obtaining passion in doing.

kinda makes me wanna take back the things i said about him.
