That was my second thought after reading this:
Greetings Region 3 International Summit Delegates,
I cannot believe that we are 3 days away from this year’s International Summit!
My first thought was “I can’t believe it, either…”.
I couldn’t believe it because I truly thought the summit was NEXT weekend. But, come to find out, it really is THIS weekend, and this has nothing to do with my procrastination.
My husband said to me while waiting for the doctor earlier today, “I knew I should have bought you an organizer for your birthday.” And he said that simply because while I was reading my Medical Liability textbook (always a good read while waiting to see a doctor, right?), I was estimating the word count for an assignment due tomorrow night on damages. The professor said a good writer could probably write the paper in about 500 words, and since my articles for the Golden Key newsletter are always 300 or so words, I figured I could easily do the damages paper on deadline.
And that’s when it hit me…I have an article due tomorrow for the newsletter. That is not a good thing to suddenly realize in a waiting room full of people – my gasp was quite audible 🙂
An organizer might have helped me estimate the time I have to prepare for the summit!
