I MUST BE CRAZY TO BE TRYING TO GO TO SCHOOL AND WORK!!!! I feel like someone has taken my head and is just squeezing as hard as they can, then someone else has hooked up my heart to the car battery and making it go "vroooooommmm, vrooooooommm" at a million miles an hour.

Tonight I have an exam (3/4 of the material I haven't had time to read), later this week two term papers are due, and this week is payroll as well as everyone at work is dumping crap on me in anticipation of next week being only three days long. Aaaaackkkkkkkkkkkkkk! If I thought it would do any good, I'd sit here and have a good cry. What on earth was I thinking? (Other than wanting out of the secretarial field and wanting more money and a better life for Jamie!!!!)

"Boy will I be glad when this week and a half is over" Say that over and over again. Before you know it, it'll be over.

When I found out two weeks ago that my helper had quit (by answering machine), but that I'd be getting a new co-teacher in two weeks, I thought "That's two weeks too long!" and felt like quitting almost every day. But last Thursday, I realized I was gonna make it, and I did, and you can, too. Just don't give up.

As far as the homework goes, I'd say, budget some time for each assignment, and do them the best you can IN THAT AMOUNT OF TIME, and then when you're done with all that, you can go back and fix some stuff, if you still have some time left. And if you don't, well, at least you got them done. Sometimes it hurts to do things halfway, but not as much as not at all. It's hard for me to even say that, but it has worked for me (when I've actually done it).

Maybe this is the time you should consider doing crystal meth?

Seriously, you can do it. I've seen you juggle this much before (well, not with a kid involved) but I'm sure it will work out in the end. Good luck!

It's okay to have a good cry now and then. Cries are very cathartic. Love you, even if you are a nut.

Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. Almond Joy's got nuts, Mounds don't.

Sorry, it's been so long since I sang on a blog I just had to do it! I feel better now. I took my exam, had a good cry afterwards, then came home to discover that Rachel had bought me cheesecake. It's a good friend who knows when you need some cheesecake! LOL!

I was going to stay up for hours working on one of the three papers that's due, but I'm so fried, and I have to be at work early in the morning to finish up payroll. So, I'm going to bed now. In fact, instead of staying up late, I'm going to bed early. I'll deal with homework tomorrow night.

Love y'all, and thank you so much for the encouragement and jokes. I feel so much better now!!!!

ann said...

Oh yeah. Catching up on sleep is sometimes the best thing you can do for your homework. Sometimes, I go to bed super early and then get up early and do homework. Or, go to bed early one night so you're totally rested, and then work on homework for a few days.

You can do it!

whenever this happens to me (and i've never had a full-time job and been a full-time student and a single mom, so let me say straight off-- i'm not worthy!), i just take. one. thing. at. a. time.

you can do it!
you can do it!

Thank you all. Ann, I'm taking your advice tonight. I'm going to bed early (for me) and I'm going to get up at 4 a.m. to work on this paper that's due tomorrow night by 11:59 p.m. I feel like my brain has dribbled out my ears, and if I don't just - chill - out - and - relax (i.e. sleep) - I'm - going - to - be - in - the - loony - bin - soon. So, I'm going to bed.

And Suze, you'd make a great cheerleader! But don't let Stu read what you wrote. He might decide he really wants to SEE you in pigtails and pompoms! LOL!

Love you all very much, and I appreciate all your support. ONLY 13 DAYS LEFT OF CLASS!!!!! (only if you don't count the weekends, but still, I do! I do! that way it seems it will end that much sooner!!!!!)
