As we approach the end of the semester, it's too easy to fall under the weight of the ever approaching real world. Break down what matters to you most and start from there. Rome wasn't built in a day, but a tower of toilet paper priorities can be.
Back in January we had some toilet paper bowling in the basement. Each roll had a specific priority on it and bowlers organized them however they felt was representative of what they needed to take care of: friends, social media, news, work, family, school, the Future, food, $ and sleep.
|Participants were later entered into a raffle for 6 rolls of toilet paper. Just another thing to take off the to-do list!|
After the rolls were stacked, students were able to knock them out with a steady and strategic roll of their favorite billiard ball. Most of the participants were thesis students, but even though they were hard at work, taking a step back at their priorities did help (hopefully) in the long run.
