But then, I wonder, if the week really was 9 days long, does that mean I will get to do all of the things I want to do, or would I just find more things to do and feel the same?
Anyway, the other day, I felt so tired, I wanted my body to be reconstituted. I wanted to separate my limbs to pieces, oil them up, and put them back together again. Like an automobile tune-up. Maybe I needed a massage, or a visit to the chiropractor. I don't know. All I know was that I was enjoying sleeping these nights recently.
I have so many things I need to do. I am running a lab, coordinating research assistants, analyzing data from various studies, oh, and writing a dissertation too. Not to mention I am preparing for talks and such.
But you know, at the end of the day, I still enjoy this. I look back and see the things I have done, and wow, it feels good to see that one has accomplished something.
I think it's all an issue of mental health. If I don't take vacations or excursions where I get my camera and do something just for the heck of it, then I think I would definitely go crazy. I think if I only do research and school all the time, then I would just explode, burn out, and go crazy, that I would hate what I do. Instead, in order for that not to happen, then I arrange things such that I have things to look forward to every now and then.
And so far, it works!
