I've been quite overwhelmed this past week, although I suppose I can't really complain because the resulting stress is of my own doing.
Rico and I clearly want to use our remaining time in Moz to make as much money as possible, so we've both taken on double jobs in the short-term. It's definitely a feasible load, but we are busy, and evenings and weekends are filled up now by work instead of 100% play.
I keep reminding myself that, in my case, this rhythm will subside on the 22nd when I turn in the massive translating job that has been the source of my overwhelmed state as of late. I also keep thinking about the dollar figure, which helps me become more motivated to do just one last page of translating before bed.
It's a strangely satisfying rhythm, being super busy for short spells. It reminds me of being in school and having to survive midterms and final exams. Except now, instead of eating dry sugar cereal out of the box and hanging out with roommates while studying, I sit at my computer with a glass of wine and a cat in my lap, with Rico keeping me company while trading stocks online. Same underlying feeling of a bit too much to do in too little time, but with a much more sophisticated exterior...
