Sacrificing Sleep & Restoring Sanity

Last spring, I was struggling to keep myself organized given all of my social and work commitments. These past few months, I've been able to stay on top of my hectic schedule and my Google calendar has basically become my best friend. My main problem now? Being busier than ever.

There have been stretches of time over the last few years when I found myself busier than usual, but never like this! Unless I'm sick, there is never a day when I don't have something scheduled. When I say this to my friends, they thing I'm exaggerating, until I show them my calendar and they get exhausted just looking at it. I have to admit that there have been a couple of times when the mere thought of having to open my calendar had me completely overwhelmed. But the thing is that I haven't really had a chance to take a break.

Between work and work-related events, dating, spending time with best friends, catching up with old friends, etc., there just isn't a day with nothing to do. I keep saying that I'll give myself a break, but something always comes up: a friend who moved is back in town, a co-worker's birthday, and on and on. It never ends!

But I have to say that even though I know I need a break, it feels great to meet new people and deepen my bond with existing friends. These days, I find myself constantly reminded of how lucky I am to know the people I know and to have them in my life. If I lose some hours of sleep in the meantime, at least that time was spent with the people who keep me sane.
