Finally came to terms with all the things I still have to do this semester before I can get back to two things: my own research and LIFE (which leads to finally getting back to blogging as well). It took long enough, but I made a plan (there's a timeline and everything, I made a calendar of it's own only for this) of how I'm going to get everything done. Now, after a lot of struggling and planning, I'm finally comfortable and hopeful that not only can it be done, I'll even do a good job.
Things are lined up and make sense now.
Things are not scary anymore.
Colleague says it wasn't a mistake, there really is another assignment.
Colleague shows me course outline and it's true, it's right there. Lecturer had just put so much emphasis on current project that every single one of us assumed it was the final one, the big one, and that there was nothing after it. But it's right there, come to kick us in the butts now that we thought we're all almost done with the course.
But nothing can be done about it. We have to write this very long final essay as well.
Back to zero.
Make a new plan.
Restructure the coming month.
More work again.
Bye now, I'm off to work.
