making mountains out of molehills

mounthilli’m really good at this.  the simplest task will have me feeling like it’s the biggest job in the world.

you: hey enoch, can you throw this away for me?

me: [thinking] oh my gosh!!  another thing on my list.  how will i ever get all this stuff done?!?! [collecting myself and trying to seem as “normal” as possible] sure.  i’ll do it.

so maybe a little exaggerated, but nevertheless, this is how i feel sometimes.  i tend to exaggerate things in my head to mammoth-sized proportions.

me: you mean i have to turn in this assignment in 2 weeks?!?!  that’s… 14 days!  that’s so not enough time.  i’m not gonna make it.

professor: uhhh… i just wanted your home address.

i hate to-do lists.  looking at all the stuff i need to do overwhelms me.  and plus making a to-do list is just another task to accomplish on my list of things to do.  lately, i’ve had a lot of things to do.  and it keeps piling up.  i’m not even aware that i keep adding things onto my list voluntarily.  geez.  what’s wrong with me?  i’ve learned somewhere in my early school years to prioritize your list, take care of the small ones first so it makes you feel like you’re getting stuff done.  i say screw that.  you have to get to the things that are most necessary first.  they might not always be the small ones.  but then again, maybe that’s why i’m so stressed.  i should revisit the teaching of my youth…
