As I groggily dragged through my morning routine, it occurred to me that I had yet again forgotten to write my slice the day before. I mentally kicked myself, wondering why this year was proving so much more challenging than previous years. My busy schedule has been increasingly stressful, leaving little time to write. Last night I had tennis practice followed by a dance performance. By the time I got home, I was so focused on finishing my homework that writing my slice had completely slipped my mind. I sighed and continued to brush my hair, vowing to be better about writing for the rest of the month.
