When I have to explain to people the kind of work I do, I can see in their eyes how it makes them bored, do you know what I mean?
What do you do for a living?
But I think when I talk about deadlines, they’d understand. Because most of us have been dealing with deadlines since we were kids, right?
You have to submit your work by this day and time.
And how does it feel to look at the days that seem to breeze through the hours? The next thing you know, your time is up. Pass your paper, finished or unfinished.
The thing about deadlines is they don’t just sit silently waiting for the day you should turn in your work.
They are like cute little things that incite guilt whenever your progress seems stunted for whatever reason, like holidays. Who works on holidays?
