time is running out

In an immensely popular freepaper called R25, there was this article on what us Japanese call "May Syndrome". Since fiscal year begins in April here, a lot of people are excessively motivated in April. However, around May, a lot of people get a negative rebound of that. That is the reason why it is called "May Syndrome". So, I tried one of the stress checks on that article and the picture above was my result. Bloody hell...I knew I was a bit depressed, but I wasn't expecting it to be this bad.

Anyway, today was even more busier than a typical Tuesday. Like always, 2 uninteresting periods of French, followed by Constitutional Law and Civil Law classes. I was glad that I was able to achieve significant amount of understanding in Civil Law class which I had a lot of difficulty understanding the past few weeks. Constitutional Class was fulfilling like usual...but God, those classes felt long today. It could be one of the symptoms warning me of a possible case of "May Syndrome". I have lived through well and I'm not going to ruin that record because of a fictitious "syndrome".

After school, I drove for first time in 4 months today at my driving school which I must graduate by the 3rd of June. With a huge interval and upcoming deadline, I was really under pressure before class. Luckily, I had a kind instructor today, giving me all sorts of advice prior, during and after class. Yay.

With a minimum of one class left, I just hope everything goes well on my next pre-test. I don't understand why ended up taking this long though. Besides, I don't really have the necessity to drive at the moment anyway, but if I fail to finish this curriculum on time, I will end up wasting 300,000 yen and that is A LOT of money.

In chaotic urban avenues, you are always trapped between life and death. I have made another reservation tomorrow. A nice instructor and favorable traffic conditions allowed me to live through another day, but who knows what is going to happen tomorrow?

We'll wait and see. lol
