Gee, two weeks left into the new year and already I am on the brink of madness. This month is, surprisingly, taking a turn for the eventful: outrageously tight deadlines at work; another critical compilation of end-of-year lists; zany online discussion threads to participate in; lengthy thank-you emails to write; strangers’ Christmas parties to go to.
This is actually becoming a to-do list that is difficult to sort, priority wise. In actual fact, they do not demand the same urgency nor importance – but right now, I can barely suppress this crazy urge to swiftly tick them all off and draw a handful of shiny stars next to them to officially mark completion of said tasks.
This is it: the finish line is near. Can I hit the panic button already?
