So as if I didn't have enough stress in my life I've started a Master's program in Health Informatics. It's online, hugely expensive (but fortunately there is a fund available at my work or else this wouldn't happen) and lots of work. I've spent the last 4 weeks working on this assignment worth 40% of my grade. There is only one other assignment worth 60% (yes, I do know math). Finally submitted it last night, 5 hours short of the deadline which is some kind of new record for me and now I'm waiting with bated breath for my mark.
WHY am I doing this? Well in Germany we say "when the jackass is doing too well he'll venture out onto thin ice" (or jennyass in my case I guess). Anyway, I'll wait for my instructor's feedback and then I'll decide if this is worth my while. It was a great incentive for exercising though because after staring at my computer screen for two hours I had to get moving. So maybe it's all good.
