My life is a giant game of Whack-a-Mole®

I focus my entire being on whatever ugly little mole pokes its head out. That’s my nature. If I think about the other moles, I won’t get to the current one before it’s too late.

I beat one of ‘em down, and another one appears. The quicker I whack one, the quicker the next shows up.

Behind in school. Behind in work… Behind in pretty much everything, I think.

I don’t even like to go to sleep anymore. It seems like I’m wasting time.

So that’s my dilemma. How do I take my eye off the current problem long enough to think about what’s coming next?

I don’t have free time. Any time I’m not working or studying or sleeping I’m stealing from one or more of the above…

When does it all stop?

Do I just keep whacking moles for the rest of my life?
