A blogger's life
The life of a typical blogger is often filled with periods of relative inactivity followed by some predicted and unforeseeable rushes.
Before a child reaches his school age, he almost has time to burn. Next he goes to primary school, where making new friends and doing daily homework occupy much of his time. However, he has much to look for during winter and summer holidays.
Then he gets to the next level of schooling, where parent's expectations and intense competition between fellow students together with pressure to perform well in the forthcoming university entrance exams will deprive much of his fun in and enjoyment of holidays. In fact, a holiday will be just another working day in disguise.
After much struggle, he may squeeze into a university. During the first couple of years, he can certainly afford to relax a little. But this relative tranquility will not last, as he soon realizes that graduation is rapidly approaching. He has much to catch up with his courses, and also has to make his mind where he wants to head for after graduation. He will have some hectic periods, which may barely prepare him for his final dash across the line.
If he has some luck, he may complete his undergraduate education and find a job of some sort. Surely, he deserves to take a breath for a year or two. However, it will not be long before he notices that his peers are ruthlessly overtaking him. So he has no alternative, but to roll his sleeves and put his mind to work.
Time flies quickly, and when he gets himself somewhat established in his profession, he finds out that it is almost time for him to retire. So he tries to do as much as he can in the last years of working life, and then heads for retirement, where the pressure to always be his best evaporates.
Such is life. Some people always worry about how to complete the process while others try to enjoy as much as they can before getting there.
