Long time no see. We’ll I’ve seen you, as I keep more on top of my Google Reader than anything else in my life, but you’ve not seen me.
I don’t really have a good reason. I am just a lazy blogger. I often think “Hm, I should post…” but then the aforementioned Google Reader or twitter or staring at the wall get in the way.
I’m also a teensy bit stressed the hell out.
I’m back in school, part-time. I’m taking 7 credits which translates into a 2.5 hour lecture, a 2 hour lab and an online class that is a ton of work. This, plus working 40 hours a week and an hour commute each way = cranky crank.
I had a job the entire time I was in school last time, but it was always part time. And I took a light course load, and I only had a 10 minute walk to class, this time it’s all different.
Mondays are the worst. I leave the house at 7:30 a.m. and get home at roughly 9:30 p.m. By then it’s shower and bed, the end. Tuesday night I have my lab, and while it’s supposed to be 2 hours, I’m super smart (or something) and finish early, so I’m usually home on Tuesdays before 8. Still, another 12 hour day. Wednesday-Friday nights I am busting my ass trying to finish and submit my online work (which I usually have stuff due Weds, Thurs, and Fri) because I have no time to do it on Monday or Tuesday thanks to the aforementioned classes.
So it’s a leeetle stressful. I feel like I haven’t used much of my brain in the past two years working at a daycare and Starbucks and now in the office, so these classes are really giving the ol’ grey matter a workout.
On top of all this, last Friday my computer up and died. I’m waiting for a box to send it back to get repaired and praising the Flying Spaghetti Monster that I took all of my lecture notes by hand because I have a midterm on Monday! Hoorays!
But even though I’m stressed and exhausted and cranky, this is what I need to do. I need to finish school, I need to get a degree. I screwed up the first time around, so now I’m paying for it with all of this added stress. But I currently have an A in my art class, not sure my Psych grade but I am rocking all the lab work, so it shouldn’t be less than a B.
So go me. And go to sleep, me.
