I was cleaning my room yesterday, chucking and giving things away (again). So I threw away a big pile of papers – university papers. The ones I wrote, and the lecturers’ comments sheet. Somehow, I thought one day, I would read them again.

I nearly burst into tears when I know realistically, it is almost impossible that I can fly out tomorrow on time.

There must be a way for me to think quick, think flexible. There must be a way so that I can train myself to respond to problems more intelligently. There must be a way I can make my mind sharper to improvise around situations.
I know I like structures, advanced planning and things along those lines. Now it is becoming a weakness. Time to turn things around and try a different way.
