I can breathe a sign of relief this morning considering I am running on less than 4 hours of sleep. I had a crazy day yesterday – and come to think of it – the last few weeks have been quite hectic. A snapshot of yesterday as I replayed it around 1 AM this morning.

5:00 AM – woke up
5:35 AM – Left the house
5:49 AM – Took on the train
6:55 AM – Arrived at work
In between the craziness at work, tried to work on a school research paper that was due last Friday because I was living on borrowed time.
6:00 PM – Left work
7:40 PM – Arrived home
7:55 PM – I had promise to take Brandon bowling – school event.
8:50 PM – Left the school

9:30 PM – I had to finish the paper. It’s a 12 page research paper on the “History of Christianity ” and my choice of topic was ‘The rise of the papacy’. I managed to put the last period on page # 12 at about 12:30 AM.

I was pretty desperate but no choice but to finish it. I am the queen of procrastination and I hope to find some sort of a cure for it. I’ve always waited at the last minute to finish school work and as a result put myself under a lot of stress. Based on how I managed to put that paper together with all the time constraints– I am counting on the professor being gracious to me (in addition to being late) – considering it’s worth 35%S of my grade. On the bright side, not only is the semester over but I have completed the coursework for my Master’s degree in Theological Studies at Liberty University in less than 2 years.


I have actually studied something that I truly enjoyed and in a sense education is supposed to be enjoyable and fun. I could not say it was so for my undergrad degree. I also enjoyed my computer classes in Networking too. Did I ever tell you that I put a computer together back in 1989? Yep. I bought the parts and put them together together and used that PC for about 3 years.

Break Time.

I have opted for the time off to concentrate on the following:

Building a website for a sweet idea that I have been cherishing. I was given the Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium to play with and I have yet to start working on it.

Starting a Bible study in January: Lord, Only You Can Change Me, A Devotional Study on Growing in Character from the Beatitudes by Kay Arthur.
I should go back to work now. It has taken me 3 hours to write this post while working.

8 PM (God willing) Get home and try to figure out what to get Brandon’s teacher as a present. Last day of school for the year is tomorrow. Do I see the ugly head of procrastination rearing its ugly head again?

Have a blessed day everyone.

    Myriam,Girlfriend, I am so proud of you! I am in school for my BSN( bachelors in nursing) and I often proscrasinate too so things would be easier and so much less stress for me if I would not put things off. I get stressed out and I just deny that there is any issues to iron out until 1-2 days before something is due. Your sweet words on my blog I have so appreciated. May GOD bless you in a special way. Have a blessed Christmas. Laura

    YEAH!!! for finishing the paper and school for the year! I worked full-time while I finished my Bachelor’s. My son was 4 at the time. It was a very difficult time. But God was so faithful every step of the way. And I so understand procrastination. That is the story of my life!Take care, my friend!I hope you have a great weekend now that you can breath a little easier ;o)
