A friend once commented on someone else's rambling actions by tapping her head and whispering to me, "Too many thoughts."

That's how I feel these days. Too many thoughts are running through my mind. This is likely a near direct result of my daily commitments. Balancing studio and science classes, a rigorous human-computer interaction course, working two part-time jobs, applying for summer internships, shoveling snow out out of my car's way, writing design blog posts, taking care of myself, and now caring for a new hamster is quite a feat. How clichΓ©.

Whether or not this will be a sustainable endeavor...well, we'll see. My life could be boring. I could be sick again. I could have financial worries. There are so many ways this could be worse, but I just need to push through. 

For the first time in my life, I can say that I really am working hard as I feel that I'm testing the limits of, not my multi-tasking and endurance, my capacity to string together coherent thoughts and questions within these new subject areas. For the first time in a long while, I feel like the whole of my daily life reflects the general sphere of work I envision myself doing in the future.

    @vickenstein I can totally relate to the "too much" feeling. It's so cool how you are leaning in to that feeling - I hope to emulate that!

      @jimmycerone I hope in a good way! I feel like it's forcing efficiency, and I'm improving at prioritizing important work because the more work I do, the bigger pool of data I can drawn upon to estimate the length of time for each task. Thanks for reading :)
