I've often been told that I mentally check out when things just get too overwhelming. I tend to do that at work, especially since it's my first year teaching non-native speakers. I'll google obscure things at the most inappropriate times (usually when there are more pressing tasks to attend to: grading papers, exams, etc.). This usually results in unwarranted stress and panic as the deadline approaches. I wish I was different, but I'm not. I don't have my sister's ability to get things done quickly and efficiently (or my dad's persistence or my mother's drive, for that matter). I guess it is just easier to escape into this different world (seven different tabs, to be exact), while eating these:

green almonds.
