Intern Diaries: Week 11

Today marks the start of tournament week and I'm already completely exhausted. It doesn't help that I almost willingly did this to myself, but ya know, what's college without some questionable life decisions. 

Advance week has been rough and extremely stressful. I constantly felt that like no matter how hard I worked or how long I worked I was never going to be fully caught up and on top of things. 

Perfect example: yesterday I worked for 13 hours straight essentially and still left the office feeling stressed out at 9PM... Only to get to the hotel and have approximately 5 hours worth of stuff to finish up. Including this post. 

I can honestly say that I've definitely learned a lot more in these past two weeks than the other 8 combined. I've found a pattern in my work habits, confirmed that I do actually work best under pressure, and learned to deal with stress in a much different way than I'm used to. 

Now if only I could learn to go to sleep at a decent hour. 3 hours worth of sleep (what I'm currently functioning on) each night this week ain't gonna work. That's the next step in the learning process here. 

My post for next weekend is going to be much more exciting and picture-filled, but felt the need to confirm that I am, in fact, alive. And I'm learning things. And I'm excited. And terrified. 

So, here's to tournament week! And making it out alive!


PS- I may have some major life-path changes on the way (included in next intern post.)
PSS- GO BUBBA!! And Go Dawgs!
