Busy Busy Busy ... putting some of it in "recycle bin"

Thursday, February 07, 2013

So, I ended up dropping my class. I was completely overwhelmed and was struggling to keep up with the course load (it is almost three classes in one) - one segment for my major working on a project, one segment working with other majors on a project, and studying for final exam that covers four courses I took 10-15 years ago. UGHHH. My plan is to hold on to the study guides and use them - get my flashcards and quizzing on! I am also going to hold onto my research and papers so I can maybe use it next time I sign up!

While right now I feel like a failure because I couldn't handle it I am so relieved that the stress of it is gone. It feels so good to get 5-6 hours of sleep rather than the 3-4 I was getting trying to get work done. I wasn't eating well, if at all. I wasn't getting any fitness in. I had not spoken to or hung out with family or friends (live or spark) in 5 weeks - I was isolated but for school and work and even there I was focused on tasks not people.

I have enjoyed yesterday and today. I like sleep, I like food, I like people. It felt good to talk with my daughter for more than a few minutes over breakfast yesterday.

next blog ... my future plans
