The sardonic answer would be “fighting.”
The optimistic answer would be “living.”
And the truth that lies somewhere in between…? Surviving.
I am now ten days and about 7 hours away from my university graduation. I have a presentation tonight, a class at noon, and a paper due tonight. The current time is 1:45 AM.
My plan is to go to sleep at 4 AM and wake up sometime between 7 and 11 to do more school work and laundry.
This time next month, I’ll be asleep after having looked into getting a job (or having found one, hopefully).
What have I been doing with my day? Earning my sleep.
