I finally hit a wall with everything I’ve been doing. Jack got the chickenpox and my cat got sick, both during my last week of school when I had two finals due. I also got a $253 parking ticket and had extensive (and expensive) dental work done that week… Even I can hardly believe all of this happened in the span of 7 days.
So yeah, I’ve been scraping by with minimal amounts of sanity. As soon as my finals were submitted I just kind of broke apart. For the last week I’ve been practicing my breathing, focusing on one task at a time, and trying not to blow up at anyone. I spoke with my college counselor and got the start date for my next round of classes pushed to November and then I buried my head in pillows and focused on doing as little as possible.
I’m not sure how I’m going to make it through this degree program, honestly. I am generally a fantastic multi-tasker but I have a hard time when things interfere with the time I want to spend with my loved ones. And how does time for myself fit into this equation?
If anyone has any tips, I’d love to hear them. I am not sure how to juggle my responsibilities anymore…
