My workload grows and grows when it has no need to.
I had to do a ten minute presentation yesterday at university, on the literary criticism topic of Structuralism. (I was going to talk about Structuralism in relation to The Hunger Games. It would have been awesome).
|Representation of the dyad of poverty and wealth depicted in The Hunger Games. |
Without poverty, there is no wealth, and vice versa. See? I know this shit!
So I did the work. Made my presentation. I MADE THE TERRIBLY HORRIBLY HARD DECISION TO SKIP SUE LAWSON'S BOOK LAUNCH YESTERDAY BECAUSE I WAS STRESSING ABOUT THE PRESENTATION.
So yesterday came. My flash drive was corrupted. I hadn't written a speech, it was all in the power point presentation.
So now, to make up for NOT doing the presentation yesterday, I get to write a 1,000 word essay on it instead. On TOP OF the other essay that's due.
End whiny vent.
