You might be wondering what's going on with me after seeing the title of this article because it's the complete opposite of what I wrote the previous day: You should know when to slow down. I actually planned on taking things slow, but what changed? Let me just start from the top
Public universities in my country have been on lockdown since February because the lecturers were on strike. I have been at home ever since and in a way, I was happy with the strike because it provided me with time to focus on blogging and coding. In my last article, I said I was going to start taking things slow because I overworked myself last month but I woke up in the morning and found out that the nationwide university strike has been called off, and academic activities will resume soon!
I laughed when I saw the news and I just said; "damn, I can't even catch a break" and that's just the truth, I can't afford to take a break now because there are a lot of things I have to put in order before I eventually go back to the university. First of all, I'm going to need lots of money because there are going to be lots of expenses to take care of as school activities resume.
This means I will have to take blogging very seriously and double my efforts (this is definitely going to hurt 😩). Luckily for me, I still have some HBD (my earnings from hive) but I will have to add more to that, making more money doesn't hurt anybody, right? I need to save a lot of money because when academic activity resumes, I won't have much time for blogging anymore.
I still have some BCH but I ain't touching that for now, have you seen the current price? It's crazy! I'm just going to keep hodling BCH while I focus on spending HBD. Another thing that needs to be taken care of is the report on the industrial training I did before the strike started, I had over 8 months to prepare that report but I didn't 😬.
Now I'm under pressure to get it done before school resumes in maybe 2 weeks from now. I told @mhizutty I will resume typing the report today and I actually planned on starting it during the day but when it was time to start it, I foolishly slept off 😂. I got done with my normal daily chores before 11 am and I said I will start typing the report once it's 11 am, but I didn't know when I slept off and woke up 4 hours later 😓.
I plan on typing it tonight but right now I'm waiting for electricity because my laptop's battery is low and I need to get it charged before I can use it to type. That report is going to take a hell lot of time because it involves lots of research and it's going to be over 90 pages long, can I get it done in 2 weeks? I definitely hope so, or else I'm screwed.
As for coding, that one has to be set aside for now and I'm definitely not happy about that but judging by the things on my list, blogging and report writing are my top priorities for now. I can only do a little bit of coding once in a while, especially because I do write tutorial articles about some programming concepts on hive.
So, from the things I have talked about in this article, you have seen why I said I can't afford to slow down now, there are lots of things to do and so little time to do them, I will need to double my efforts and grind like hell, there's no time to take things slow anymore, now is the time to pour on the speed and I just hope I have the energy to keep at it.
Thanks for reading 💖💖💖
