Anticipation is an exhilarating emotion, especially when the anticipation you’re feeling is for a holiday. Looking forward to it, planning for extensively provides a kind of excitement and eagerness that is unmatched by no other. All you can think of is the number of days and hours left for your plan to take action. You could be sitting in the middle of the most boring (but important!) meeting of your life, but it is the thought of the holiday that instantly brightens up everything. You could be burdened with assignments due in unmanageable days, but it is the thought of the trip that motivates you to complete it.
Anticipation is a good thing, because it gives you something to look forward to. But what happens when you anticipate too much? They say too much of anything is a bad thing, so I assume it stands true for anticipation also. Anticipation can sometimes be all pervasive, not letting you concentrate. You could be sitting in the most boring (but important!) meeting of your life, but the thought of your holiday keeps distracting you. You could be burdened with assignments due in unmanageable days, but it is the thought of the trip that keeps you from completing it – instead tempting you to sit and daydream for hours.
I don’t think anyone really likes anticipation that much.
