When will I have time for ME?

Sunday, March 21, 2010

These past few weeks have been a real struggle for me. Things have been piling up as I have basically been home enough to sleep and not much else. My eating and exercise habits have slipped further (I find it difficult to stay motivated to eat healthy when I don't have time to exercise), and I'm more stressed than ever. School is taking its toll on me, and I'm already stressing about this summer when I'll most likely be working 2 part-time jobs and taking 3 classes. Money is also a stressor. My car bit the dust, so I just bought one, meaning now I have to make car payments (thus the 2nd job). The one good thing I have to look forward to is moving home at the end of April. I can't wait to be home with my family. But at the same time, I'm getting very sad about leaving work and my friends here. I hope I can do a better job of keeping in touch than I usually do. There's just so much going on its almost suffocating sometimes, and at times I wonder if there will EVER be a time in my life that I can just relax, as I've spent the past 7 years working my butt off in school and being stressed almost all the time. I feel like I'm losing some of the best years of my life when I should be doing fun things and spending lots of time with my friends...

    You hang in there! Both of my daughters are college students, and I've seen the stress working and school can cause! But... oh what a great feeling of accomplishment when you can pull it off! It is a very character building time of life! I'm rooting for you! :)
