Humans of HKIS: Emma Hu
“Recently, there was this six-page comic due for Lang. I just told myself it’s okay, don’t worry about it. I didn’t even start it when it was on the due date. I’m an art person, but procrastination just got to me.
On Monday, we have this time during lunch we can go and share our comics with each other, and I didn’t start it yet because I kept saying “it’s fine, don’t worry, sleep one hour and get up the next and start your work. That didn’t work out too well. (laughs)
People say you should forgive yourself and relax and let it go, but personally, I take things too far to the point where even if something’s completely overdue, I’ll be like “it’s okay, just let it go. Don’t worry about it.” And then that only pushes things even further and I can’t fix the bad habits. You should start changing things up to try and change it the way you want it to, instead of just letting it keep go further and further away from the path you want, or else, things are going to be unfixable.” Emma Hu, Class of 2020
