Today marks the first day of the year where I will figure out what it means to be nineteen. Right now it means a lot of emails to professors, printing papers, and possibly cleaning my room later today.
It also means remembering that humans can’t multi-task. It’s impossible, apparently. So when you have 8 things to do on your to-do list (or more), you have to take them one at a time.
Sometimes I make to-do lists and get stressed out by the amount of things on there. So I stress about it and go on Facebook and do all the things that aren’t on the to-do list instead of actually tackling the things I actually needed to do.
Does this sound familiar? Also, does this make a lick of sense?
It’d be much better to take a deep breath, remind myself that Jesus is with me, and conquer one of my stressing tasks.
Strange how easily I can forget that the best way to conquer by to-do list is to do the things on my to-do list. That seems like common sense, but common sense often goes out the window when stress sets in.
This week is my last before spring break and my first being a 19-year-old. I’m going to take things one at a time and conquer. I think Jesus cares about to-do lists, about the things that stress me out. So, together, we shall overcome.
