Of Patience and Tolerance

“Life is time occupied in space.”

My professor did it again. The last time this happened, nine hours of my time was wasted; six hours flew away today.

My undergraduate teacher described life as “time occupied in space.” She said that if only people would look at life this way, we would not waste any of our time as well as other people’s time because that would be tantamount to slowly killing ourselves or others.

But what do we do if our superior is the one wasting our time? I know I cannot change other people. Perhaps this is a sign for me to adapt or learn how to work with my professor. Okay. Breathe. I’ll try this one tomorrow: bring something to read or do so I can finish something productive while waiting. Alright, that’s what I’ll do for now until I find a better solution to this dilemma. If you have any suggestions please do tell me! I need all the help I can get. Thaaaaank you! :)
