(A poem about life – Blog writing challenge)
We hold time in our hands,
The soft ticking continues as the day unfolds.
The memories manifest, creating a kaleidoscope of good and bad.
Colours blend as day ends and night begins.
Twenty-four hours, many spent sleeping, rushing, worrying,
not enough wondering, creating, expressing or loving.
Slowly spinning as the past meets the present and the present meets the future.
I was given three weeks to complete all of my work and I thought this was enough time. I don’t think time management is one of my strongest skills but I decided to create a schedule but it just didn’t work out. I hated the restrictions I was setting myself and I wanted to do what work I felt like doing instead of doing what I wrote in a timetable. Now I have eight days to finish my 30 page script, my personal development plan, add more poems to my 15 poem portfolio, add 1000 words to my 2000 word short story and at least start my 3000 word report.
I feel like my head is going to explode! I know I have another week but I feel like I haven’t got enough time. It’s not like I haven’t done any work. I have been doing little bits of each piece every single day. Maybe this wasn’t enough. I just can’t wait to get all of these assignments in and then I have a few weeks left of this term then it’s summer! That thought scares me too because I have no plans or job as of yet. I am trying to complete all of this work in time but I don’t think I am going to do it. The good thing is they are not all due in the first day I go back so I have a little time.
The main focus is my 30 page script because that assignment is in first and so far I have 11 pages that I am happy with. I am very surprised with my patience with writing this script. I am out of my comfort zone but I am enjoying writing for this medium. It makes a refreshing change from short story writing,. something I am more familiar with. I really need to pull it together. I’m sure I can do it! Time is ticking.. I better start typing!
