work the system

“There are things i must do right now, and there is barely the time or money or energy to do them. I will bulldoze my way through these tasks, and as usual , they will be completed just in time – but the results will be of marginal quality , and my body and mind will continue to be stretched to the breaking point. I ‘m tired and stressed and can’t seem to shake free of living on the edge, and i worry about my frame of mind and my health.
