What's The Rush?

Doesn't it seem like everyone is rushing ahead, full speed, from one thing to another, all day long, every day, hurry, hurry, hurry, day in and day out?  It sure feels that way from here.

When did we become this "go, go, go, go, go" society with no room to stop and catch your breath?

E-mail never turns off.  And if you do try to ignore something, a text will immediately follow.  And another.  And another.  You never get to disconnect.

That can't be a good thing, can it?

Have been thinking a lot about this of late, because sleeping is something that is giving me trouble at the moment.  It's amazing how your brain can race on a random topic ad nauseum when you are watching the minutes tick by on the clock at 3:00 am. 

Perhaps it is the adjustment to the day to day grind at the start of the school year for me, although it is more likely the still-daily radiation treatment interruption every single weekday (for at least a couple more weeks and then some), but it certainly seems like there are not remotely enough hours in the day to accomplish even a tiny portion of the things that are popping up to be done every single day.

Either I need a new system to keep track of everything or I'm trying to do too much all at once.  Am I the only one that feels that way at the moment?  Or is this who we all are now?

I feel like George Costanza's dad in that Seinfeld skit on "serenity now!"  (YouTube)
